For the many folks running nightly builds of CyanogenMod 7 you'll want to hit ROM Manager or the CyanogenMod forums if you haven't already. V7.0.0-RC1 is now available for download if you're using either a Nexus One, MyTouch 4G or HTC EVO 4G. If you're not seeing it as of yet, just hold out a little bit longer as things are likely still populating across servers. Don't forget, if you happen to run into issues you can hit our forums for some help as well. [CyanogenMod] Thanks, everyone that sent this in!

CyanogenMod V7.0.0-RC1 now available for Nexus One, MyTouch 4G and EVO 4G

Haha! True and a very good point but.. I only fired it up for the pic. I'm waiting for the RC-1 for my Nexus S.

Only if you're flashing a radio or recovery. Flashing a ROM is not very brickable, if at all. If your battery were to die in the middle, you'd still be able to get into recovery.

Fair choice. There is one really bad problem with screen rotation while txting (it wont rotate) but this could just be me (or a setting) other then that its a fairly stable release. I wanted 2.3 so i jumped into nightlies.

I'm having the same problem - has anyone solved this? Basically auto rotate isn't working in anything (except the image preview for the previous image in the camera - while the camera is running).

Tried enabling and disabling CyanogenMod settings > Display > Rotate 180 degrees (didnt work)
Tried Settings > Display > Auto-rotate screen
Tried Launcher Pro auto rotate settings.

Another forum encountered this, and solved it by re-flashing the ROM...I just spent about 3 hours re-setting up my Nexus One...dont really want to have to do that again...

...ok....24 hours later, and for no apparent reason, auto-rotate now works fine? I would put it down to me turning my phone off at night (i.e. a restart), however I had tried this several times, so no idea why it now works. Only change to the phone and settings is a bunch of new apps. Maybe the BBC app has magic CM7 healing powers? But probably not...

Well, I still got my evo, but bought an Epic 4G 3 weeks ago and love it. This is one rom I miss right now....

Just when I thought I was going to bed....I had to check AC one more time and now I'll be up for another hour!

Is the annoying dialer bug on Nexus One fixed? As of 2 days ago the daily build was still giving black screen after dialing a number.

But does the camera work on 004 hardware? I had nightly on my last evo and it killed the camera. Couldn't even get it back after a restore. Had to get a new evo and haven't rooted this one yet. A little nervous. Don't want the same to happen again.

Anyone know any details about this problem?

For those who didn't automatically assume so as soon as they saw the MyTouch 4G had RC1, YES the T-Mobile G2/HTC Desire Z has CM7 RC1 ready for download as well. Check your Rom Manager! I'll be installing some Gingerbread goodness first thing in the morning!

Just downloaded and flashed, seems like a significant improvement over the nightlies except one thing. The battery seems to drain faster, I'm going to see if a different kernel is better. Loving the gingerbread goodness though.

Can anyone with an EVO running CM7 RC1 let me know if the left notification light works? When I was running the nightlies it wasn't working. Also, does wireless tether work? Thanks guys!

Notification light works on right side, left for charging. Wireless tethering currently isn't working for me.

If anyone finds a fix please let me know.

Thank you! Those are two very important aspects for me and if I can't have good notifications or tethering, it's not worth going to gingerbread yet

wireless tethering is working for me. had to disable network security, though. LED's same as op. can't test usb tethering (mac)

I am on nightly #38 for the Dinc. They just added the arc unlock for this build. I have been running the nightlies since they started, and each one is improving greatly. I think RC for the Dinc will be out this evening.

Ran this last night..

Same issue that I had with one of the earliest nightlies that I didn't have when I first ran CM6:

When wiping all data, only about half of my market apps reinstalled themselves. None of my purchased ones did, and what did show up seemed to be random.

For instance, AdFree, Barcode Scanner, Solitaire, and a couple others installed, but Scorecenter, Pandora, Shazam, Winamp, and many others I had to go download manually. Thankfully I used Titanium Backup on all of them so I could have a list handy, otherwise I might not have even remembered what all was missing until I went to use it and couldn't find it.

Everything works great but the GPS doesn't work on my EVO it says GPS Signal lost all the time. Anyone else having the same problem?


I have an Evo and my USB port on my phone is non functional....Is there a way to root without this having to hook the phone to a computer?
