CyanogenMOD 7 Nightlies FAQ (MT4G)
I have been reading the CyanogenMOD 7 Nightlies thread and thought I would go thru and make a list of the FAQ's that people ask.
Got the idea from Phateless and his Post #863
If anyone has any others to add, let me know and I will add them.
Thanks to the following (and many others) for all your help answering questions

Go to Swype and sign up for the beta
Reboot into recovery. Wipe cache, advanced, wipe dalvik cache, fix permissions. Give it some to think on first boot
before setting up

Qik Video Chat does not work, use TANGO, for the upside down video, do the following (Post 88)
You need to use ADB or RootExplorer to edit it. I'd say RootExplorer is easier. Go to /system, mount rw, long press
the file build.prop, scroll down to ro.product.manufacturer and change it from HTC to Samsung. Make sure to save
then reboot for it to work.
Trouble Sending Email using Gmail?
From home screen. Menu, settings, applications, manage, tab for all, find Gmail and clear data. You often have to
do this when restoring a nandroid as well.
Phone going in to recovery when trying to charge with power off?
No worries, everyone has this issue. At best guess, i'd think it to be a recovery issue, since I don't recall
having that issue previous to CWM 3.xx recoveries. I've been waiting for a fix so I can re-calibrate my battery
too. It's not bad enough that I'd downgrade to CM6 to do so, but I like to do it every couple of weeks.
This is a known bug on the phone/recovery, it isnt rom related. It has been happening since root was had on the
mt4g. Just plug in b4 you power off and it will work fine.

Blurry MMS pictures
? (Post 616)
Because the default setting doesn't have a User-Agent selected. MMS messages received are blurry as a result. I
just set mine to Default Android.
--messages, settings, custom user agent, click CUSTOM again, it will prepopulate mms2.0. Hit ok.
Clear data under applications settings. Then reboot and try again. If that doesn't work try a factory reset.
or Post (1639)
Because that would clear your google account. Instead of clearing data, clear cache, uninstall updates to the
market app and reboot. When you reopen market all of your downloaded apps (and hopefully your backed up ones too!)
should show in market.
Apply your phone Number

Turn Off Shutter Sound In Camera
Root Explorer > System > Media > Audio > Ui > Mount R/W > delete (or move to SD) camera_click.ogg. You can delete VideoRecord.ogg too
But I haven't been able to get rid of the sound when the camera focuses..

WiFi Calling and MMS Problems
Fixed my issues with Wifi-Calling MMS.
I talked to TMobile and they gave me the correct info for the APN settings.
I deleted both of the APNs listed under wireless settings and created a new one.
Just in case any of you are having issues with SMS or MMS using Wifi-Calling.. give this a shot.
Create a new APN.
Username: leave blank
Password: leave blank
Server: leave blank
MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.050
MMS Port: 8080
Authentication Type: leave blank
APN: default,supl,mms (Very important to not have a space in there.. just the ,)
hit the menu button and hit save. then use that apn. You should now have working MMS and SMS.
