Flashed about an hour ago and so far everything is working fine for me. I don't have any of these problems that people are reporting with the home button and what not. This makes me think it is something in settings. Make sure you go through all of the settings thoroughly. Seems strange that some people are having issues and some are not. If you updated through Rom Manager, I suggest booting into recovery and wiping cache and davlik cache a couple times then flash the Rom and see if that helps. I use AmonRa recovery and was running nightly #38. I booted into recovery, wiped cache and davlik and flashed the Rom. Everything is working perfectly so far.

Is GPS better in the final? I remember CM7 team saying it was one of the things they were aiming for in the final release.

edit - I read the changelog and didn't see anything related to gps.

aGPS is fully working, and many of the surrounding problems are solved, but the hardware itself in some early-gen models are just finicky and cause frustrating bugs (specifically, a few incarnations of the hardware will just *stop* in the middle of its tracks with OSS in CM7 ; CM6 used binary blobs which were essentially HTC code). Most early hardware stumbles on the Sense GPSCLRX fix while significantly more of the later-gen hardware handles the call correctly.

Cyanogen is still working on it, and has stated intently that while 7.0 is out, progress will continue constantly. The Evo and its illustrious ball of tangled fishing line called its GPS are going to get its comeuppance in time.

Flashed and after maybe half an hour it's running perfect. Just as good as my RC4 that was running. After tomorrow I should have a better idea though. I'll put it through the GPS and 4g paces and whatnot. Seems fine though. Considering using the stock kernel for once though

I hope the Evo 3d doesn't have all different kinds of hardware versions like the Evo does. That's the main culprit of all these issues people are having. I got lucky no issues with mine

I don't think the binary gps driver is GB compatible. Which is the whole cause of this stupid mess, if GB and Froyo had compatible drivers all would be fine.

brofist, when you say 'early hw', would that include hw003?
