    If you update your rom you will need to flash Gapps to use the Play Store. Make sure you flash the Gapps that is compatible with your rom.

    As for wifi, Go to Settings and to wifi. Tap forget. Reboot your phone and router. Now setup your wifi password and see if you can connect.

    You know, I recently re-flashed CM on my phone, I used the version of gapps I got when I originally flashed like 8 months ago with the newest Nightly or so but I'm thinking there's a newer one. I kept getting errors and my phone was unusable until I activated my Stock ROM again.

    Where do I get the gapps that is compatible with the newest nightly? (Sorry don't mean to sort of hijack the thread but this info could be useful to the OP.)

    Usually, they list the Gapps file on the Dev's site.

    Nope. I just actually Google'd it. I should've done that in the first place. Apparently my mistake may have been using an older version of GApps. I'm currently referring to this Wiki page for the correct version. I'm going to test it out and see what happens and report back. It might be awhile, my phone was completely dead and it takes 5 1/2 hours to charge. I'll do it in the morning. I'm actually going to try installing a new battery, as well. Wish me luck with all of that.

    Oh boy, I just looked at the version of gapps I had on my phone. The install was 20130813. The new one is 20140105. With a newer CM (11.2), I'm fairly certain that was the problem. From the looks of things, the version of gapps I had went with CM10.2. Again, I'll find out for sure when my phone gets done charging and I'm able to reinstall, right now it's at 60%.

    A year old... not good. Keep in mind, when you do a nightly you will need to flash Gapps.

    According to this tutorial, GApps are optional. I don't understand why. Also, the directions are a little bit off from what I see on my screen. I don't have the 1GB, 2GB, 3GB options. I have 3 different size options: System, Data and Cache which I'm using these sizes, respectively: 1GB, 2.3GB and 700MB. I'm currently flashing it right now.

    Also, according to the tutorial, not only are GApps optional (don't ask me why, I'm clueless), but you're suppose to flash the CM ROM, reboot, and then flash the GApps. Does that sound right?

    Edit: Just tried to install the latest CM nightly. Had this error when installing it:
    skipping md5 check :no md5 file found
    Also, the latest GApps would not install, got a FAILED message. I didn't catch if I got a FAILED message when trying to install CM. I wonder if it's in some relation to needing the latest version of Safestrap installed.

    This is from the tutorial you posted a link too.

    By default, Cyanogenmod cannot ship with Google Apps by default, so these will need to be installed manually

    I flashed the appropriate gapps version for cm 10.3.1 and got the play store back. I'll work on the Wi-Fi problem tomorrow.
    Now to figure out if Privacy Guard prevents certain apps from working at all.
