Before you begin, check the Backup / Restore settings on your phone.

If these settings are active, then you wont have to re-install all your apps after updating.

Download the new CM version and Google Apps:

Save these files on your SDcard in the /OpenRecovery/updates directory.

Reboot your phone in OpenRecovery mode (tip: use this quickboot app)
apply sdcard:update.zip to go to the Androidiani  menu

Make a full nandroid backup!

Next  delete all 3 caches (don’t worry, you wont lose your apps as long you have turned on automated backup/restore.).

  • Wipe Cache Partition
  • Wipe data / Factory reset
  • Wipe Dalvik Cache

Choose Apply Update and select update-cm-7.0.0-RC3-0.07-11.03.04-Milestone-signed.zip
then
select the gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip to install all google apps.

then reboot and by happy.

NOTE: after boot, the market app will ask to to resync your apps. DONT do this! First setup your WIFI / 3G settings, then run the market app. (the app will give this warning)
