Default Google Market. Updates cause problems on some custom themed ROM's "X stopped"

This is something I didn't know and this post has helped me fix Google Apps that stopped working.

The Gmail fix is relatively simple and works every time (so far, I, and 6 of my friends, have used it):

Settings > App Manager > All > Google Play Services

Undo all updates. It will tell you it's installing the "factory" version of it. Hit OK.

Gmail (black Rom version) will [should] work.

Then, I went into Google Play Store settings and UNchecked all auto-updates so they can't slam me into non-working updates anymore.

When you run Maps and a few other Google apps, it'll put a little alert on your Noti Bar that the app NEEDS the newer version of Services...it doesn't...they all work perfectly so ignore the warning until a new Services gets released.

The only issues I still run into is Google now and YouTube won't work with the factory services anymore. I got other apps for YouTube so that's not really an issue but I've started to like Google now lately.
