    Yes you can access Google market as normal with the mod. I never had any problems navigating through. As far as Google unleashing a better update against Cyanogen, most of the updates google released are just fixes from previous ones if not some new stuff are added. I always keep in mind that moders like Cyanogen have something better than OS roms as long as its not in Beta stage.

    they are just different ROMs. It's all about personal preference. CyanogenMod is basically stock but more speed, and more options. Modacos is the Desire ROM on the Nexus. You wont be able to run both at the same time you would have to reboot into recovery and flash the other ROM. If you are going to be switching ROMS often I suggest getting Quick Boot from the Market, just lets you get into Recovery a little bit faster. Hope i answered your questions.

    I just rooted my phone and OMG did it take me forever...I am such a noob. I started at 10:09 with a full battery...there are a lot of things you have to be aware of..small things that will cost you hours of time. Anyway I am tired no, so after work tomorrow I will start playing with all the cool features. I got a lot of info from searching this forum..actually had the best answers and sure enough like Neonmonster, Ralphie speaks and some others said..."every problem I ran into, I searched and found it in one thread or another" thanks again everybody...now I can enjoy more features even if I am still on the EDGE network with Tmo.LOLOLOL
