When in doubt, post in the users thread.
After many long nights of banging our heads against keyboard, the CM7 port is finally shaping up.
In addition to nightly releases, we may from time to time be releasing test builds here for your feedback and enjoyment. If you find issues please feel free to post here in this thread. Leave all other feedback for the user thread.
Where to get progress news:
I will tweet progress from time to time.
We are usually in #nookie on freenode.
You can always check the Cyanogen git@ http://github.com/cyanogenmod
DO NOT FORMAT YOUR SD CARD IN CM7. DUE TO A VOLD ISSUE THIS WILL FORMAT YOUR /BOOT INSTEAD OF THE SD CARD!
****Should be fixed in nightly 13****
-Standy battery life is not as good as stock
Because of a kernel bug CM7 does not fully sleep. The result
is ~1% battery drain per hour while the screen is off. With normal use I usually go
1 - 2 days between charging.
***fixed in 2.6.32 builds***
-A few apps do not scale to full screen
In order to get Market and Maps to work fully the lcddensity has to be
set to something other than 160 causing a few apps not to scale properly.
-Wifi slow to reconnect at times
-Video playback is slow
-Default rotary lockscreen does not fit screen
-Market partially works
-Bluetooth does not work
****Update**** Bluetooth now works in CM7.
Bluetooth is working seemingly perfect except for the range. Unfortunately, the range is terrible.
Depending on the device you are paried with, the range is between 1-5ft. Any ideas on how to
fix the range issue would be much appreciated.
-Do not use SetCPU profiles
If you enable SetCPU profiles it will become a runaway process eating 100% cpu.
Setting your cpu clock can be done in Cyanogenmod Settings. Under Performance->CPU Settings
-Internal storage partition is not mounted on boot and is not shareable via USB
