    I have run a number of different ROMs these past few months. I just installed CM 6.1, and I am really impressed. It is super-stable, and some of the features are amazing. To name a few:
    -Lockscreen gestures work as advertised. Awesome.
    -Pulldown power manager widget. Even includes a button to lock orientation in portrait mode, which is really useful when you are lying on your side.
    -Excellent customization options for status bar and LED

    No force closes or random reboots. Great battery life from the start with the stock kernel, although I will start experimenting soon. I have found Chevy's 800 MHz kernels to have amazing 24-hour battery life. Suffice it to say that I am thrilled with cm6.1.

    My only issue so far is that my apps did not auto-install from the Market, so I had to use Titanium Backup (a bummer for people who haven't caved and bought it).

    Probably new gapps. They are expecting a Gmail update too.

    And I had no problems with apps reinstalling

    Hmm that's weird it didn't install. I have all the Google apps. I installed via rom manager and clicked the option to install Google apps.

    Is this a separate pack you speak of? And would that affect my other apps that wont install?
