Google Apps

The Google applications, including GMail and the Play Store, don’t come with CyanogenMod.  If you need them or they get broken by a CyanogenMod upgrade, you can install them with the app.  Once you install it, for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, download gapps-ics*.zip.  If you don’t want to use their OpenRecoveryScript, after you download the Zip you can use ClockworkMod Recovery to install the Zip.  The file downloads to /mnt/sdcard/goomanager/.
