cyanogenmod7

Only just a few days ago we saw RC3 of CyanogenMod7 rolling out, and today they are releasing RC4. Since RC2 we have seen mainly bug fixes in each update, but this time they have brought a big fix for Open GL (EGL specifically) from the AOSP. Additionally, the Nook Color version has gained hardware acceleration, but unfortunately the Nexus One still may have the call audio bug, and the EVO still has minor GPS issues. Enough of the jabbering, get to downloading, hit up ROM Manager, or CyanogenMod to get your download started. [CyanogenMod]

CyanogenMod 7 RC4 hits; brings big fix for all devices

Flashing on the INC right now.

UPDATE:

Flashed, after 5 minutes of use not a whole lot different lol. to be honest i thought it was perfect before except the battery was a little weak it seemed. so hopefully that got a little boost.

I'm wondering the same thing. I was also wondering, if there was a way to link contacts like with sense and have the facebook calendar populate the stock calendar... aka Full FB sync. To be honest, that is THE only reason I don't stay with CM.

Why not do it at Gmail/GCal level and then pull the calendar into the phone that way? Have a look on FB for an app called "fdCal", it works a treat and will export your birthday/event things to a Google Calendar of your choosing.

I appreciate the idea. I'll give that a try. Is there any way to manually link contacts? The reason I ask is that I have a friend that uses a fake name on FB and it obviously won't sync with his real contact name saved in my gmail? Any ideas? Thanks.

"Minor GPS" issues with the Evo? GPS has been 100% useless on every single nightly and release candidate. Id hardly call that minor

I got it to work by doing the ##GPSCLRX# on stock then getting a lock on the GPS through any GPS app. Proceed to turn off the phone witout leaving the app. Flash CM7 and GPS will work fine

To sync fb contacts go your pb contacts. Choose a contact not synced. Hit edit contact/menu/join. Then choose the contact to join on fb. You have to sync each one individual. Kind of a pain but once you do its done. Also if the name your looking for isn't in the list its because its not close enough to fb to recognize. Ie. I had my mom in as mom. When I changed it to her name she was populated in the list and I synced it. Hope this helps. Also the above fix for GPS on the evo worked flawlessly for me. I use turn by turn everyday to find job sites.
EVO out!!!

Doing what I suggested you do. I got 12/12 satellites on GPS status and a instant lock in Google Maps

For the trick you need you MSL number

I think @cvpcs will not compile a RC if he knows there is a sizeable bug. Then when he fixes it, he aligns the RC number with that of the other devices.

What's this audio bug? I'm waiting for the final version before flashing my phone. Seems it's very close since this RC4 just came out a few days after RC3.

I think they're referring to the call audio bug where your voice takes 2-3 seconds to reach the other end's handset and the same goes for you receiving from the other person, it's random between models and radio versions and roms. There's a call delay fix app on the Market.

Running rc2 on the evo and literally just downloaded rc3 when this was posted. Didn't realize rc3 had gps issues because rc2 works flawlessly for me. Guess I'll stick with it and wait for a stable or rc5.

Install Zeam Launcher on that Nook Color and set the dockbar's alignment to small and see how awesome it is to put tons of apps in one screen on the dock.

I took my Nexus One back to stock specifically because of that stupid call audio bug. 9 times out of 10 I would answer, the caller couldn't hear me. It got really irritating. When they fix that, I'll put it back on.

I went back to sense for now. RC1 was great, but RC2 seemed to be full of bugs not present beforehand. I've decided to wait until 7 Final; I rely on my phone too heavily to be beta testing with it :/

I flashed CM7-RC-4 today , seems to run much even better than the RC-2 , especially when using ADW Launcher EX , very very happy with my HTC Desire running CM7-RC-4 , great work gang!!

If anyone has questions about this for their Droid Incredible or any phone. head over to the forums for your answers :) CM7 is the Answer!!!

head over to droid inc forums on CM7 and nightly forum for the answers. :) youll get way more help there

I'm running the 2.15.00.07.28 Stock radio with no problems. Some folks like the newer EVO radio. I just never had a need to upgrade.

Does anyone know any find for the thunderbolt I had the cyangonmod rc3 but it didn't have Google apps like the market

Man, the only issue I've had with RC2 is the GPS one with the EVO. I'd really like to see that fixed. It takes forever to get a lock, if ever.

I'm waiting for official release of CM7, had a handful of problems with nightlies and RC of CM7, never had trouble with nightlies and RC of CM6 and CM6.1.1 runs like gold.

Actually, pretty much every Gingerbread rom I've used has a share of these weird problems, I'm sticking to Froyo roms for the time being so I can actually use my phone without running into something everyday.

On my Nook Color CM7 RC4 is MUCH better than froyo that previously ran internally. With the 1.1GHz kernel and the new CyanogenMOD settings set to “1100/300 Ondemand” I’m getting a quadrant score of over 1700 (highest number I got was 1739)!!! Remember to disable SetCPU to take advantage of the CM7 speed.

Flashed CM6 for my Evo and the front camera stopped working, forced closed every attempt. My buddy tells me to flash 7 I wont be sorry. Flash it and now my camera works but not wifi tethering. I'll be good on 6 until they finish up 7.
