Default Cyanogenmod 11 issues

Hello,

Lately, I wanted to try this new version of Cyanogemod on my HTC Incredible Shttp://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2519414. Everything went well, but I noticed I didn't have access to my Sim contacts, there wasn't Google play installed. I did my research and found the solution, I need to install Gapps. I followed the instructions onhttp://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Google_Apps, but the system can't open the file. Now I don't want to use this Rom anymore, and want to use another Rom. But, here's another problem. To install Cyanogenmod, I used 4EXT Recovery, and in order to do it I restarted my phone by choosing Recovery mode when I pressed the switch off button. When I tried to do the same procedure, the system don't give the choice ans restart automatically. I try to install it on my phone, but it is only available on Google Play, which I can't install.
I don't what to do. Thanks for your help and sorry for my bad English.

You aren't supposed to be opening the file. You're supposed to flash the GApps file in recovery just like how you flashed the ROM through recovery as well. Same process.

TO enable advanced reboot or something like that, go to "About phone" in settings. Then go to build number (should be the very bottom or close to the bottom) and click it 7 times to enable developer options. Enter developer options (this will appear int he regular setting menu once you click back) and click enable advanced reboot.

Just for future knowledge, it is important to know how to get into bootloader when the phone is off. This is done by pressing volume down+ power button at the same time. Then, by using volume key, scroll to recovery and press power button. That is the manual way of entering recovery
