Rom is running very well I must say, very smooth, and nice to have the bloatware removed. Very promising, and has the lovely Aosp clean feel. Also nice to have the Extra Device settings.

Many thanks, and Regards.

tobias_r33per,

If you are using my SPARKZ_2 kernel as part of this ROM you should stop!

The version you have is outdated and no longer supported. Current CM7 source includes several updates subsequent to the kernel version you are using. If you are indeed building from source you should know this already.

Would also have been the decent thing to do to give credit to TeamHacksung for all the work they did in bringing CM7 to this device and myself for the kernel you are using. Especially since you are clearly not in a position to be providing the support for this ROM - I will have to deal with the SPARKZ related questions that will come up (and they will come up, there are bugs in it!).

I caution all who would install this rom - stick with the real CyanogenMod, at least then you get the latest and know what you get.

Thanks for your feedback, i realize that the kernel is outdated, this build was made sometime ago and i know the current build from git are using an updated kernel version for #106 and higher, it was merely included for testing and thus being an alpha build.

This is rather a bold claim to make though, my bad if i dont live up to high standards

I do love your kernel and all the work TeamHacksung have done getting CM to run on this device, i am in full support and donate to the cause.

Builds after this will be based on higher nighties and NOT include the version of kernel in the alpha, i made this ROM NOT to take away from the work of the TeamHacksung team but rather add some more things that I used to make CM7 something for me, i decided to share this with others and will continue to to so as the greatest thing people can have is choice

I would no worry about the support factor mate as the kernel wont be in the next build.

Hi there.
Found a problem, Battery was not taking charge, but battery was Red Hot. A full wipe was made previous to flashing. Never had this problem before and may have been a "One off', but worth mentioning. I have reflashed Oxygen, and charging is fine.

Let me give an example or two:

In your first post you state you did the following:

- CM7 Nightly Based Rom - To quote you: in the beginning you say: "Built straight from the GIT CM7 sources and compiled from scratch" then, when I point out you are using an outdated kernel, you respond by saying "this build was made sometime ago..." - which is it? Which Nightly is it based on? If properly configured, one can build a completely themed and customized KANG in as little as 7 minutes, why would yours be so outdated?

- Rooted with latest SU and busybox - Why? CM7 is already rooted and both apps are included as part of CM7 already, built from source.

- De-Oxed for Themes - Why? CM7 comes with TMobile Theme Chooser and lots of theses are freely available in the market and on XDA.

- Zip-aligned - Why? This is done automatically by the CM7 Build script already

- Debugging on by default. - why would you do this? From what I can see, none of what you have done changed code.

If you are changing the code, where is your source? CM7 is GPL, and the source must be made available?

From your lists, all of what you did or want to do is either not needed, or can be done as an CWM flashable .zip "add-on" for a real CM7 nightly or a Theme Chooser Theme.

To sum all this up:

1) It is nightly based but on #101 from what i remember

2) NO SOURCE CODE HAS BEEN CHANGED IN THIS VERSION! configs files yes and apks yes and kernel yes

3) I listed those things to help those who read and may not have seen or read or even used CM7, that way they know, people need info

4) It isnt finished i said there is a lot to do in this one, and i dont even know what the state of this rom build may end up being, it was built a while ago but i thought id share what i have done all ready

5) IM LEARNING its taking me a while to get used to this sorta thing, im sorry that im a not "seasoned" or "expert" at this yet and may never be, its a hobby.

6) Do you flame all new devs this way or am i a special case , im not made of time and i do this for a experience and if i could do this on a daily basis or so it would be more up to date

If this sorta thing continues, i will just stop touching the CM7 and stay with my first ROM built from stock modifiction, i must say your not making me feel like i should be doing this. I respect the team and the work but your making out like i am violating your space and NO ONE should touch the stuff.

Agreed the comments were heavy handed and unacceptable, and should have been PM'd as apposed to embarrassing the OP.
Everyone starts somewhere.

It is/was not my intention to flame you nor have I done so.

All I have done was point out originally that you should not be using my kernel with the new nightlies as it is outdated and has known bugs. Your description did not include the version of the CM7 base you are using and still doesn't. I was trying to avoid users with an unknown base of CM7 coming over to start asking questions in either the CM7 Q&A thread or my SPARKZ_2 kernel thread.

I am still a 'new' developer myself, this is certainly not my 'space' and I encourage anyone to take it on as well. It is a fun and rewarding hobby. We all had to start learning somewhere and are still learning every day. The XDA community is there to support and guide you.

I personally would not have started with publishing a full CM7 derivative ROM. There are known issues with both installing and running CM7, including buzzboy's phone heating/battery issue above, that you will now have to provide support for in this thread.
