I Am Not AFFILIATED with the CyanogenMOD Team.. Any Comments by me are not the views of CyanogenMOD!


Please Read ENTIRE Post


CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/
CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Right, lets try this again, shall we?

The OP has kindly provided another thread for you to ask questions in and generally post pointless crap like 'thanks', 'downloading!', 'awesome' etc.

This thread should be reserved for bug reports and constructive feedback for the OP.

I get the following when I try to flash the rom:

Installing Update...
assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "hercules" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "hercules" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "hercules" ||
E:Error in /sdcard/CM_373_Kang.zip
(Status 7)
Installation Aborted

It seems to happen with all CM7 roms but most other roms work fine for me.

Try updating to the newest recovery which is v.5.8.1.3, you may need to update rom manager too.

Try Install Zip from SD card -> Toggle Signature Verification in CWM. The exact error that I frequently used to get when trying to flash ROMs escapes me, but that typically always solved the problem for me.

Hey eugene just in case you didn't see in the other thread but

Settings>CyanogenmodSettings>Application>Use Internal Storage CHECKED
mounts internal to I'm not sure where.

I believe you have /sdcard as internal and /sdcard/ext or something else for external(not sure since I don't rock an external)

Just saying D: ..Probably insignificant but I checked it since I'm used to doing so only to find out it was mounted fine to begin with.
