I've still included the various hardware-specific code, which seems to be slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Visit the CHANGELOG for a full list of changes and features!

All source code is available at the CyanogenMod Github!

If you'd like to to contribute to CyanogenMod, checkout our Gerrit instance (howto).

- First time flashing CM 7 to your Desire (or coming from another ROM)?
1. Root your device and install Clockwork Recovery (Unrevoked method is recommended).
2. Do a Nandroid backup!
3. Update your radio! New radio from HTC 2.2+ roms is required (Desire Radio Thread).
4. WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition)
5. Install the ROM
6. Optionally install the Google Addon

- Upgrading from earlier CM6?
1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
2. Install the ROM (your Google apps will be backed up automatically)

- Was it a hard reboot? Go into recovery and dump the "/proc/last_kmsg" file.
- Was it a soft reboot or a "boot loop"? Run "adb logcat" and get send the full output.
- Pastebin links preferred
- Please use the issue tracker whenever possible!

Please visit the CyanogenMod Wiki for step-by-step installation walkthroughs and tons of other useful information.

This is the latest release candidate so any and all feedback is appreciated!

The preferred method of installation is via ROM Manager, or you can head over to the CM Forums for manual downloads.

Very fast, great battery life too.

I'm not convinced profiles are working properly but need to look at it more closely.

Great stuff!

With the new 5.7.0 version of Google Maps out this may be of interest...

I can`t download anything bigger than 5M from the markets

That's why the script /system/etc/init.d/06mountdl is included in the ROM. You shouldn't need to do anything.

I've been running RC1 for a week with a 5MB /cache, no download problems (including Maps 5.7).

mkdir /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache
 cd /cache
 mv download download.bak
 ln -s /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache download
 ls -ahl

this is not the right way

"adb logcat" during install
"adb shell df -h" can show your problem

I installed this new 7.1 ROM 10 hours ago. Generally speaking it's a very fast ROM. I like it much. But there are some little problems
1 - there are no notification for number of SMS received (SMS icon)
2 - camera shutter sound is very loud (setting there are for this not working)
3 - wi-fi signal is more weaker then other ROM in the same conditions
4 - GPS lock up need 5 or 6 minute

If you can do something with this, will be great
