agreed, be sure to back up. the issue you most likely had was due to the fact that the patch essentially wipes all of the gapps and reinstalls them. for the most part this is fine, but on occasion it causes a hiccup in the system and for some reason the "com.google.settings" provider "disappears", once that happens there is no way to fix it without either a.) doing a data wipe, or b.) restoring from a backup. serveitup911: i'm sorry that you had a bad experience and i'm adding a warning to the main page as soon as i'm done typing this. i'm glad you were able to resolve it though if the patch isn't working for you, i would suggest just doing what others have done and copying the VoiceSearch.apk and NetworkLocation.apk files over manually, so that the google apps dont' get overwritten.
