Yes you're right. But HSDPA is supported but will be shown as 3G.

Is it possible to include Gapps in
No, Google denied it.


Awesome CyanogenMod for the SGS ! Those dudes are fulltime HaXXorZ - right ?
Nope, just normal users like you and me who taught themselves how to port and fix the CyanogenMod sources to make them run on our loved SGS - so give them a break with additional functionality questions

What do you mean by porting ?
use the all-knowing Google or Wikipedia (
this means, e.g. that you use the code from the Nexus One and add drivers and other needed stuff to make it work on the Samsung Galaxy S & after that compile it to the language of the SGS and make a ROM out of it (adding more stuff)

So who to ask if I need additional languages and features ?
Ask "upstream" (the developers/guys who develop CyanogenMod)

Where have the ROMs gone to ?
Disappeared - CyanogenMod 6.1 for the SGS currently is NOT for inexperienced "users" - so you need to build it on your own from source
(in fact they moved to cyanogenmod forums but that's NO reason to flood those forums, too, with "stupid", inexperienced/noobish questions)

Why are there less posts on from the developers than before ?
Inexperienced users scared & annoyed them away with noobish questions


if you need information how to push stuff and other tasks:

read about android-sdk-windows or android-sdk-linux
there you'll find adb
with which you'll be able to do things like putting your phone into download-mode, push files to it and other nifty moves

Good idea, the main thread is getting cluttered.

Can someone who has got the cm build ruining do a series of benchmarks

Quadrant with ext2/4
Setcpu native bench

A video would be great

Yeah I got system.img and kernel... I know you use nandroid but the only nandroid I can find is for the G2. How do I do this bit?

Well idea is to push them to sd-card for ex. /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/cyanogen
create MD5 hashes 'md5sum *img > nandroid.md5' (use adb)

boot to recovery, wipe, restore,boot, apply gapps, boot.

Someone correct me if wrong.

Don't you flash kernel with Odin? And is that before or after applying the nandroid?

if you have a kernel with clockwork-recovery integrated like the ultimate lagfix kernel or the speedmod kernel by hardcore then you allready have nandroid! you just copy the system.img to your sdcard/clockwork/backup/somedir folder. then you freate a nandroid.md5 file with md5sum system.img > nandroid.md5 and your ready to restor. be sure to do a factory reset/wipe before or after and flash the cm-kernel.

edit, @Anteuz: hah, you were faster. and no, you are absolutely right

You can also unaffs the system.img, and make an, with modem and kernel, and put the gapps in the same zip. I did it this way and its running nicely. No sd ext acess yet tho.
I wonder if its only to add new symlinks in the update script to get the sd ext mounted properly... hmmm

something interesting: i pulled the newest initramfs from aery before and saw that they have changed the mounts from rfs to ext4. i am currently compiling a kernel with ext4 support ... now we only need a which converts data udn dbdata to ext4 and we are ready to go (or we use ul-kernel to convert...). this should give us another speed boost
