    Not sure what happened but when I went from 5.0.7.1 to 5.0.8 my Android Market disappeared.

    Any idea what might have happened? I rolled back to a backup of my 5.0.7.1 and the market reappeared.

    When you installed did you check the box for "install google apps" since that is where the market app is located? (assuming you used Rom Manger to install).

    I did use ROM Manager, but I did not install the google apps. Since I installed those when I loaded 5.0.7.1, and I didn't wipe the phone this time, I figured they would be there.

    I'm kind of surprised that the Market is an "optional" install with the ROM.

    You need to check that google apps box every time, even when upgrading and not wiping data+cache.

    The Google Apps are a separate download due to legal reasons, "back in the day" cyanogen received a C&D from google, this was the compromise.

    separate google apps(market, gmail, etc.) is the only legal way to distribute. technically google apps shouldn't be distributed at all... that's why they're hosted on sites like mediafire instead of "real" mirrors. all these other roms out there are illegal and those distributing them could be sued. cyanogen is just the only one that's big enough to get google's attention.
