What Cy4noobsMod-7.1.3.1 really is? It is Cyanogen for Noobs Mod based on CM7.1 RC3.0 for gio. Yes like its name, it designed for easy and very user friendly purpose. The basic idea I build the latest CM7.1 RC.3.0 ported by phiexz (as I think it's already final or likely will be no more update) and compiled it with the all good things here covered almost all the potentially frustrating common issues to make it as stable as it can be for daily uses basis. I do some few mods but may slightly unnoticeable. It is not a custom-rom. I didn’t change the interface and such. I just want to keep it as original as the origin. The most noticeable thing I did may just enabled bootsound. The rest are minor (but of course important!). OK, let put it simply now all you have to do Just Flash and Play*.

*still there is a pre-condition and some optional follow up action below

Here some features Cy4noobsMod-7.1.3.1 offers:
Quote:

• Latest port CM7.1 RC.3.0 with the all working features (credit to phiexz & squadzone)
• preinstalled gapps (credit to Msiiek)
• avoid false reformatting sd-ext by cwm-recovery issue when flashing (credit to waqasshahzad1986)
• enabled bootsound (customizable ready)
• fix split screen issue
• S2E ready (no need to mod or reformatting sd-ext partition again)
• avoid potentially market causes reboot issue
• avoid potentially installing application causes reboot issue
• use market 2.3.6 as a default (but still updateable and offer you more optional action)
• fix some other minor common issues
• just flash & play
• noobs, start your 'en-gio-ne'! and say "eat my dust" to your old migraine!!


HOW TO INSTALL

WARNING: Dragons Ahead!


But don’t worry the dragon has been tamed. Even dragon is still a dragon, so still don’t be careless & follow the instruction carefully.

First, make sure the pre-conditions fulfilled:
Quote:

• have any GB 2.3.3 or upper on your device (or any CM7 rom).
• Already made sd-ext partition on your sd-card (and make sure don’t ever let cwm-recovery touch it reformatting again!), recommended use ext4, more over if want to activated S2E (optional). Don't know how to create partition? Go to mr.waqasshahzad1986 section first, believe me he is your best guide here.
• Have cwm-recovery 5.x (recommended px-cwm or px-cwm-v2). You don't have any yet? Please visit mr.phiexz for CM-7.1 RC-3.0 & cwm 5.x section where this rom originally ported.
• Downloaded Cy4noobsMod-7.1.3.1 zip file copied onto your sd card.


Download Cy4noobsMod-7.1.3.1 here:

Cy4noobsMod-7.1.3.1.zip


Installation:
Quote:

Just Flash & Play!* via cwm-recovery 5.x (press & hold Home+Power button to enter recovery mode)
*no need to wipe or mount anything, install zip from sdcard > choose zip from sd card > CyanoobsMod-7.1.3.1.zip > Yes-Install
• And you just officially 'noobed'! (I mean you already have Cy4noobsMod-7.1.3.1 on your device).
*always recalibrate your battery after flashing any rom!!

easy right?


Optional follow up action:
Quote:

1. Market

If you want to keep market 2.3.6 as your market and don’t want to get any updated, open terminal emulator (pre-installed with your CM7) and type this:

Quote:

su
pm disable com.android.vending.updater

that will disabled your market updater, but you still can enable it anytime if you decided want to get updated. just change the “disable” type to “enable” with the rest script are still the same.

recommended!! do this as soon as possible after flashed before you got updated automatically. if you already updated just uninstall the new market at "setting>applications>manage applications" and hurry type the script or you can activate flight mode so you will not get updated.

You can ignore all the things from the beginning if you want your market soon get updated (you will get your market updated automatically as long as your internet keep active)


2. Activated S2E (sd-ext ext4 needed!)
Quote:

• Download S2E from market
• Open it and open its menu, setting, checklist all.
• Buffer size value better leave it as default (there is a chance S2E would repel the partition if set more than 256KB)
• Back, open menu again, choose reboot (usually it won’t reboot at your first time, so you may reboot it manually).
• after reboot open S2E again and checklist all (recommended leave the "application data" still uncheck, but you may check it if you want ap2sd extreme activated).
• open menu, choose reboot again (at this time it should be worked).
• and yes now you have your CM7 with S2E activated.

You can ignore all the things if you want try any other app2sd like link2sd (even I think it ported optimized with S2E).


Issues:
Quote:

• There’s a known bug on gio that it can’t be helped. Cwm-recovery have a habit to reformatting your sd-ext, but it does not format the card correctly on gio. It may not harm if you not using any app to sd-ext things (S2E/link2sd/ app2sd/… or etc), but it does if you do. That’s why I warn you to avoid cwm-recovery ever touching your sd-ext (ex:wipe/format/restore/...etc). Just format your sd-ext partition into ext4 only using your computer. If you want to do any recovery backup-restore things better use any other apps, like Titanium Backup maybe (sorry it may just my limitation, hope the other dev here can help us there).


Notes:
Quote:

• As it actually designed for noobs, please be wise to use it as it be. Please, don’t try to do silly things to your rom. Don’t try improvised things that some thing to do with your rom like modding or added tweaks. It may ruined your rom (conflict tweaks caution) and please don’t blame me for that. Customize it will be very welcome as long as not touch that area.
• Sure advance users will always have privileges to do sort things (with notes they knew well the risks. sorry noobs, i'm not being double standard here. i'm a noob too anyway). Feel free to have a try my rom for test its stability sir… your reviews would be really very very appreciated.
• Please ignore some grammar error as long as you can understand me.

yes, actually that's one of my goal too sir doing this project. i want to made a safety checkpoint for CM7.

that's why i'm using the latest CM7.1 RC-3.0, as long as we can see it look like will be no more any development (already fixed).

currently i'm testing CM7.2 too (build by Mclaw+del-kernell)...

yup, just do it once only on your computer before flashing it
please take a note don't do wipe or mount anything on cwm-recovery, bcoz it potentially ruined ur partition... so do it just like the motto:

Just Flash & Play!

please try it and ur welcom bro...

So CWM is basically useless? Doesn't this means we can't do back up/restore?

You're right after backup it will format ext anyways so all this rom is useless untill new cwm because you still need to use card reader but maybe you can restore from cwm excluding ext partition I dont know anyways I use titanium to backup ext ofcourse maybe Im wrong?
