comment Suspicious Permissions And A Safe Repository?
For future reference, you can use something like Titanium Backup to make backups of previous app versions and revert to them if something goes wrong (This saved my bacon when I almost got locked out of my Google account due to a botched Authenticator update).

comment Phone not updating Market to Google Play?
@Poldie: it's quite easy really, the scary part is the rooting, and that's quite simple now. Just remember to make a backup of everything, and you should be fine. Here's the official update guide: wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/… FWIW I'm very happy with Cyanogen and I don't regret switching. Much more space on the device, at the very least, and some nice root-only apps -- and of course running the latest Gingerbread.

comment Phone not updating Market to Google Play?
@Poldie: I do have a Desire, but with CyanogenMod 7.1, and I got the new market very quickly. AFAIR, Market updates are pushed by Google in their own discretion and are not dependent on device makers or carriers.

comment Accounts inexplicably removed from “Accounts & sync”
@RichardBorcsik: I did, actually. But the accounts disappear only rarely, sometimes week pass between occasions. But you might be right that it could have something to do with SD card mounting. I need to experiment to confirm

comment Can't install previously installed apps from Google Play
I see your point, I also frequently install apps from the web interface. My point was to try and install the same app from there to see whether it works at all, it might be a synchronization issue with your Google account after factory reset.

comment Can't install previously installed apps from Google Play
Did you try installing from your device directly instead from the web interface of Play Store? I vaguely remember having a similar issue previously on my phone (HTC Desire).

comment Restoring messages from ClockworkMod backup
This won't help you currently, but something to consider for the future: if you find yourself switching ROMs frequently, you can try an SMS backup application like SMS Backup & Restore which backs up your messages to an XML on your SD card, or SMS Backup+ which syncs your messages and call logs to your Google account (essentially as GMail messages).
