After installation is complete, would there be a reason it doesn't ask you to restore a gmail address while going through the initial setup?
I've done about 3 clean flashes with no luck. I've never had this problem before.
Then when I restore my Google account within the ROM and I turn app restoration on, nothing is getting restored.
I do not have access to cellular data at this point, and wifi is not turned on yet. Maybe this could be the cause? Driving me nuts!
