Am I screwed?
Had Apex RC4 on my Droid X, enabled bootstrap and installed Miui as per the tut:
(Official)(4.04) (MIUI.us V4 2.6.1 06/01/2012) BootMenu/Camcorder/Beats Audio (http://forums.miui.us/showthread.php?17792-%28Official%29-MIUI-us-V4-2-1-20-%28-03-22-2012-%29-Working-Phone-Data-MMS-Stock-Camera&p=73489#post73489)

When it finished flashing I lost all my applications, including bootstrapper and rom manager, and I don't have a way to install them to get the google applications installed. I tried booting into recovery via Power + Home and it can't verify the package.

Can anybody help me? Thanks.

Did you flash Gapps in the same session as the rom? If not flash them and you will have your Google apps. Here is the link to Gapps from the Miui link you posted http://goo.im/miui/shadow/MIUIv4_DXD2D2G_gapps.zip

Did you backup all you other apps with titanium backup or some other app?

Dont use bootstrap on Miui. Once rom manager is installed update cwr to droidx 2nd unit. Recovery is built into the rom.

Ah, I have figured out how to boot into clockwork recovery! It wasn't giving me the reboot option for a while and I may have toggled something to have it show up.

Thanks for the crazy-fast replies!

Yes, so I have the google apps now, however I still cannot seem to find the option to reconnect my google account; if I open up the play store it just kicks me out instantly. Any thoughts?

Haven't ran Miui v4 but see If you can add your Google account in the main menu settings under accounts.

It appears that I simply needed to reflash the rom at the same time as the gapps. Looking good now!

Alright. Glad it was an easy fix.
