Post [Dev][ROM][2.3.7][GWK74] CyanogenMod 7 port for Samsung Galaxy SL [24.1.2012]

I started this thread to continue codeworkx work he started for porting the CM7 to Galaxy SL.

the old thread that codeworkx started can be found here
[NO NOOBS][ROM][2.3.7][GWK74] CyanogenMod 7 for Samsung Galaxy SL

All credits are reserved for codeworkx and any one whom was working or is working on this port

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Latest release 24.1.2012 :
https://rapidshare.com/files/3198315...ANG-signed.zip
  • video playback fix
  • updated the kernel to UC v8
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary for this project :
First of all this project is still under development and it can't be considered as stable.

What is working in this port :
  1. Calls and sms
  2. 3G
  3. GPU
  4. Audio
  5. Wifi
  6. Internal & external sdcards
  7. Bluetooth
  8. Touchscreen
  9. Camera
  10. vibration
  11. video playback
What is buggy and not working in a good shape:
  1. DSP manager (seems to work after reinstalling it, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=161) ( thanks goes to tanmayrocks )
  2. GPS
What is not working :
  1. Video recording

  3. Tethering
  4. Applications that require mic can't use the mic

Any feature that is not listed here it's not tested yet and it might be working

Install instruction:
Quote:
INSTRUCTIONS:

- First time flashing CM 7 to your Galaxy SL (or coming from another ROM)?

Install a Kernel with ClockworkMod Recovery (any one should work).
Reboot into Recovery
Do a Nandroid backup!
Install the ROM from sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
Optionally install the Google Addon


- Upgrading from earlier CM7?

Do a Nandroid Backup!
Install the ROM (your Google apps will be backed up automatically)
Optionally install the Google Addon (might get lost during update)


There are no Google Apps bundled with CM ROMs, because Google asked Cyanogen to remove copyrighted apps, after flashing rom don't forget to flash Google Addon package if you want it.

NOTE: Your device will be fully converted to EXT4, except for the efs partition. You'll lose all data on the first install!
