I just updated sapphire from 0.7.0 to 0.8.4 with no problem but when i rebooted i had no market icon on the homescreen or with the loaded apps. i did a restore back to 0.7.0 and am back to normal but did i do something wrong in losing the market?
just a few other thoughts before i start on this. since i already have the 0.8.4 update renamed to 'update.zip' on my sd card can i load that first before doing google apps and is it necessary to do the 'wipe data' process between loading 0.8.4 and google apps?
i was just about to post. i did load the ROM first and then gapps. i decided to try it without data wipe between. big gamble for me but apparently i guessed right this time. everything is running great. i may tackle overclocking next. thanks to everyone for all the help
