i've your ctr v2.2 recovery. steps 1-9 are well understood. now, is it imperative that we flash gapps.zip? will it break the functioning of the device/rom if we choose not to? will maps & tts work if the respective apk's are pushed to /system/app and correct permissions set? point is i'd like to avoid as much g00gle cr@p as possible.
