Default [Q] Won't download my apps since upgrade

Upgraded from Snapshot 5 to 6, but all my Google Play apps no longer automatically download as in previous upgrades. I used CWM 6.0.3.7 to install but that shouldn't make any difference should it? What could be the issue? Just want to get it back to when it was a pretty useful substitute for my personal laptop, even if that means going backwards to 10.1 or whatever.

Also, has anyone figured oout how to address the touch screen dead zones issue other than flipping the NT upside down?
