It just means it's not released in an official capacity, nothing more.

I see in the first post it said to look at the second post for the "cm settings" which I assume is what would allow me to adjust the backlight levels. Where would I get that or is it baked into the rom now? I cannot find it so I assume I will need to flash something.

Edit - nevermind, I found it under display settings of all places...

Exactly. Even Burnsa's CM9 release is considered a kang but a self-kang.

Default Recurrent deletion of apps

After a thorough wipe, I installed the latest nightly and GAPPS. I then use Titanioum Pro to batch restore my previously stored apps. Several apps, including Camera and GoogleVoice, had to be individually restored manually. If I then flash a new Nightly without wiping, these same apps are deleted and I have to manually restore them again one by one.

So, the Nightlies delete several particular apps (the same ones each time), and Titanium cannot restore them as part of a batch restore.

Any ideas on what's going on here?

I went and read the CM Wiki and they are focusing on having those CM "parts" settings within the systems settings to make them more user friendly. Makes sense to me I guess. http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/Cya...ser_Experience

Glad you found them.

Its because you're restoring system apps. Titanium won't batch restore system apps and the nightlies clear everything out of /system.

Thanks. So, the rest of you have to manually restore system apps after flashing a Nightly, too?

Any workaround, since it is inconvenient to go thru this with every Nightly?

I always exclude restore apps on things like camera, gmail, voice because they are part of the update you just flashed or they are signed and permed for the Rom. Data is another story. I still don't have TB do the data on Voice because it needs to be activated anyway with each install. I do have it restore data on my Pandora, conductor, handcent and other apps that have special settings and login passwords. Hope that helps.

You shouldn't have to restore camera, its already included in the ROM. For Voice and other apps you could just download the app from the Market and use Titanium to restore just the data. Then the app will be in /data and will remain between flashes.

Or you could take the Gapps zip, unzip it, stick the apks you want to be in system in /system/app then rezip the Gapps (making sure you don't use any compression) and sign it. Then you could just flash the nightly and then your custom Gapps after every flash. I used to do that on my last phone that had less storage space in /data. Root Explorer and Zip Signer will allow you to all these things from your phone if you want.

In my case, Camera and Voice don't show up with the Nightly updates. Gmail restores fine.

With the other ROMS I've tried, beyond the initial total wipe and install, updates leave all my apps in place.
