If you have a TiBU you can restore the data... But you'll likely have trouble with the app if you try to restore it from a TiBU, best to reinstall it from the play store.

I was testing the first pre-alpha build. That was before DZK's classes became a bear. Since then (about 2 months ago roughly), he is concentrating on his classes. As soon as things lighten up for him (read: probably summer break) he will probably pick things back up. I talked with him last night and he is still committed to CM7DX2 and CM9DX2. Something else that will help, I have a new laptop (Linux) that I can begin helping him out (as much as I can with my limited knowledge). All we are asking is patience. We both understand that everyone with a DX2 wants the rebase of CM7 and the release of CM9. With CM9 though, there are going to be some major hurdles that will have to be overcome since CM9 is a complete code re-write and the fact that CM9 is based on ICS AOSP. ICS does things much differently than Gingerbread.

For those who are new to the DX2 community, welcome! Also, when DZK went to work on CM7, he had the Alpha build out in roughly a week and the stable RC release about 3 days after that. He is a committed DX2 developer and wants to provide a smooth, working, and as close to flawless, CM9 ROM as possible.

For those that are chomping at the bit for CM9, think about this. Would you rather have CM9 in a pre-alpha state that DOESN'T work and just looks pretty, or would you rather have CM9 in a WORKING state? Personally, I would rather have CM9 in a working state.

The pre-alpha that I was testing had MANY problems. During the time that he did put into it, before school became a bear, he was able to address a good number of the items on the "does not work" punch list.

For everyone in the DX2 community, thank you for your support and understanding.

Ciao!

Make sure it is NOT installed to run off the SDcard. It puts those files into a "file system folder". Essentially, it's a pseudo partition contained within a file. You should be able to use the CM7 Application Manager to move it from the SDcard and back to /data. Hope that helps.

Ciao!

Don't use task managers with CM7. There is a built in feature that allows you to purge assets to free up space. Also, task managers on Gingerbread and newer do not work. They kill the task alright, however, the Android OS will RESPAWN the task. This is a FEATURE that was build into Gingerbread to allow Android to manage the memory within the device and it works VERY well. I have a BOATLOAD of stuff running on my phone and I NEVER have less than 45MB free memory.

To configure the built in asset manager within CM7, do this: Menu -> Settings -> CyanogenMod Settings -> Performance and check Allow purging of assets.

I'm in the waiting for stable CM9 camp!! Let's face facts there is no way Moto and or Verizon going to push for ICS on what must users consider an out dated phone.

Let's face it if it doesn't have 4G LTE AND a front facing camera the common user doesn't care about it which mean Moto/ Verizon doesn't care about it. ONLY more advance users understand that these things DO NOT MAKE a phone effective.

The best thing I ever did with my DX2 was install CM7, CM9 only going to make it that much sweeter~

Just out of curiosity (and this is in no way trying to get an ETA out of you or pushing for work on this), are you guys going to be taking advantage of spring break? I dont know when that is for dragonzkiller.

Spring break has past. He was assigned a boatload of homework over the break, so, no work on CM7/CM9. Give us time.

Has anyone played around with the HDMI out? I've played with some things but can still only get portrait working. It would be awesome to have landscape.

It has? Shows how much I know about school. lol. Take all the time you guys need. No rush here. Im going to be getting an HP Touchpad and dual boot CM9 on it so my ICS needs will be good until this is released.

You won't be sorry! I picked one up a couple of weeks ago. Dual boot, webOS and AOKP ICS. It's awesome.

This is only true if it's a system app. If it's not a system app (in other words, not red in TiBU), then it's safe to restore to any other ROM. I've never had a problem restoring non-system apps backed up from a different ROM. Heck, some system apps were actually user apps that I moved, via TiBU, to be system apps to free up the main memory some more. That was necessary on my LG Vortex (smaller memory than the 512mb you get with the X2).
