QUICK FAQ - 2/19/11

Q: WHAT IS THIS?
A developer port of Cyanogenmod 7 for the encore device, which has been in development for about two months starting in early January and has only recently been deemed good enough for a wider range of developers to use.
Q: WHERE TO GET NEWS ON PROGRESS?
I will tweet progress from time to time.
Twitter: @dalingrin

We are usually in #nookie on freenode.

You can always check the Cyanogen [email protected] http://github.com/cyanogenmod
Q: WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN'T?
As of this writing, most things do work-- touchscreen, wifi, sound, accelerometer, etc.
See the issue list here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=960537
Q: How do report a bug I find?
PLEASE post logs to pastebin.com and include them in your report.
To grab android logs you can run "adb logcat -d > log.txt"
This will output the log to the log.txt file and can then be posted on www.pastebin.com

Kernel logs can be had by running "adb shell dmeg > dmesg.txt"
This will output the dmesg log to dmesg.txt for easy posting on www.pastebin.com

Describe the issue as well as you can:





Relevant logs(logcat, dmesg)


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: WHO PORTED THIS?
Cyanogenmod itself is the creation of thousands of developers.

A vast team from around the world including members of Team Douche as well as unaffiliated individual developers have been collaborating for about two months on this port. Additional contributions continue to come from around the Internet. You are invited to help by contributing YOUR fixes.
Q: WILL CM7 RUN OFF OF AN SD CARD? OR DOES IT USE THE INTERNAL STORAGE OF MY DEVICE?
The nightly builds are intended to run entirely off the internal storage device. Should you decide to install one of those .zip files, you should expect to overwrite whatever was installed in those partitions.

It is critical to understand that CM7 is development software that may cause serious issues, loss of data, and/or other problems with your device and to your life in general. By loading and/or running the software, you must understand and accept full responsibility for your actions and all consequences and agree to adhere to the varied licenses and terms and conditions that comprise the software.
Q: IS THERE AN SD-ONLY "BOOTABLE" VERSION?
Not from the nighty builds. However-- should someone want to create such a bootable SD-- (warning: Slightly technical answer all it would take to create one is a new uRamdisk file with the partitions in init.encore.rc pointing to the correct partitions on the SD card.
Q: I AM AWARE OF THE RISKS AND ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHATEVER RESULTS. WHERE DO I GET THIS?
Cyanogenmod 7 for encore is available as a nightly build. See the XDA dev thread for download and development discussion:
Q: WHAT IS "ENCORE" ANYWAY?
Cyanogenmod has a fun little convention to name ports after the device's original project name.
Q: WHERE IS THE SOURCE?
On Github.com.
Q: I'M A "TECCHY" PERSON-- WHAT KERNEL DOES THIS USE?
A somewhat-modified version of the "stock" 2.6.29 source provided by Barnes & Noble (in accordance with the GPL). Changes to this kernel include a fix for a temperature bug, a fix to a cache race-condition resulting in kernel panics, ext4 support, and support for large block devices, among other things.

A port to 2.6.32 is currently underway that may facilitate improved "deeper" sleep.
Q: IS THE KERNEL OVERCLOCKED?

Just like the original stock kernel, the CM7 kernel runs at 800Mhz. However, you may overclock the default kernel to 925mhz through Cyanogenmod Settings. Cyanogenmod has a policy to not include voltage modified kernels. If you want a faster overclock see Dalingrin's 1.1 Ghz kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=925451

Use entirely at your own risk.
Q: WHAT ARE THESE OTHER VERSIONS OF CM7-BASED ROMS?
Because CM7 is open-source software, people are free to modify it as they wish and re-release, provided they are compliant with the terms of the original licenses. The CM7 developers have nothing to do with these derivative releases, which may or may not be of decent quality.
Q: WHEN WILL THE FINAL VERSION BE RELEASED?

When it's ready. Please do not ask this, as it is considered the mark of a newb. In the meanwhile, nightlies are rolling out every evening with the improvements from that day, not only to the encore port in particular, but to Cyanogenmod in general.

The current CM7 encore zip seems like it will write to mmcblk0p5 (NC's internal EMMC). Any chance of getting one that uses something like mmcblk1p2 instead to install on my EXT4 SD Card? Why? I'd prefer my internal eclair install to remain unaffected by these experiments.
