I know lots of people are looking for new CM7 stuff to flash! well I seen a rom called Dorians Redpill cm7 Hybrid v1 around the forum in some peoples sigs and such but nobody has made it available here so... I googled it and found this! http://jwhite.macleod-web.net/resources/atrixforums/CM7/RedPill Hybrid V1 RC.zip

and I gotta say this is definetly worth a flash it's damn nice!

Note: I only found this link and made it available here! I had nothing to do with making this rom! This was made by a dev named Dorian on another forum! So please give credit where credit is due! :D

And I sure as **** am not responsible for any damage you cause to your phone from flashing this! As I said I only found the link and am making it available for all the flashing fiends out there such as myself! That is all! Happy flashing! :D

Update: Actually there was one problem I experienced when I first flashed this that I forgot to mention! you may have to possibly redo your apns or restore them from a backup as I did experience a problem with my mobile connection when I first installed.

Well this is the original hxxp://www.atrixforums.com/forum/motorola-atrix-roms/3282-rom-redpill-beta-v3-7-23-a.html

but this is a newer harder to find cm7 hybrid that I just posted that I couldn't find too much info on. But I have had it installed on my phone for days and its stable as all hell and of course as you know its an RC so there may be a couple of bugs but I haven't seen any so far! :D

His work i believe is based on the stable releases from the atrix dev team, however includes the minimal lock screen option.
That means no fingerprint and no webtop incase anyone is wondering.
Also you can use any kernel you would normally use for the cm7 roms, eg Clemsyn or faux's and any theme you wold normally use on the cm7 rom as well.
I've read on that forum that someone flashed the redpill rom over the stable release without a full wipe and it worked fine.

btw version 3 is not the hybrid release, the redpill hybrid is found 167 of the thread, Dorian has not updated the OP yet

Are there any overclocked kernels for this Rom? I havnt gone thru the thread yet. Will do it over the next couple days.
RedPill Hybrid is based on CM7, so any OC kernel for CM7 will work with it. I'm using faux's enhanced 1.0GHz kernel with mine, with no problems at all. (I was using the 1.3GHz kernel, but since I'm not doing anything with my phone that really took advantage of the slightly increased speed, I opted to stay at 1.0GHz and increase my battery life.)

Note that the older RedPill releases (V1-V3) were all based on the stock Gingerbread ROM, and are now essentially obsolete with the release of the CM7-based RedPill Hybrid.
 
Sorry for the confusion. I thought I was helping. :(
No worries, mate, your heart was in the right place. :) Anyway, I've already spoken to Dorian and he's going to be creating a completely separate thread for RedPill Hybrid, in order to eliminate any confusion. He can't do it today because he got a nasty cut on his wrist and can't do much typing :(, but I expect we'll see it in the next couple of days, along with a changelog and details on how RedPill Hybrid differs from both the Blur-based RedPill and CM7 itself (probably not by much in the latter case; I'd speculate it's mainly interface tweaks). In general, though, anything that applies to CM7 should apply equally to RedPill Hybrid, including Theme Chooser themes.

Hope Dorians not pissed about this link I posted. I just wanted to make it available for people who don't even know his work exists its an awesome rom and needs some publicity plus the flashing fiends are hungry! LOL :D

Im the one that flashed over from ba2tf without a full wipe. Works fine. You can find the OP and download link at atrix forums dot com. I was having a lil unstability on it so im back on ba2tf cause i needed my phone tonight without any hiccups. Ill flash back to it later. BTW all cm7 kernels work as its based off cm7. There is no adw launcher loaded but has some different window transitions. Good luck guys.

cm7 on steroids

    Latest post from Dorian:
    [...] Many of the parts that I use in RedPill were edited in a sloppy manor by someone else before I got them, meaning I can't cleanly decompile/recompile some things. Since I can't do that, it means I can't completely theme it. When things don't fit a theme in 99% of the ROM it really bothers me. I could release RedPill as-is though, and you guys could just use it that way if you really don't care. It would just bother me, since in my mind it's not complete.

    [...] Another reason I've been a bit quiet lately is the device I have is failing. There's a light halo around the outside of the LCD panel, the internal storage is on the fritz, and the MicroSD card slot hasn't worked for a while. So testing new stuff is a bit difficult, especially when the internal storage decides to just stop working sometimes... because it's on/off. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Anyway, AT&T is replacing it...

    Just to let you guys know, you're not forgotten about. :)
    Thought you guys might appreciate the info. Hardware issues and a bit of OCD by the developer would tend to delay a new release. :D

    Just FYI, Dorian has released a new version of RedPill-CM7 (dated 9-1-2012). It's based on the most current CM7.2 source to date (compiled by Dorian, not hacked from an existing release), and has all of his usual stability and reliability tweaks. The default CM7 font has also been replaced with something that's not ugly (this includes the desk clock). :D Note that this release no longer includes ICS-style UI elements, but you can still get that with one of the many ICS themes in the Play Store.

    Go here for all the details, or you can download it here (and get the Google Apps package here). Enjoy!

    I feel an obligation to remind everyone that we were all "noobs" at some point. ;) The only way to not be a "noob" is to acquire knowledge, and I've often found that kicking them in the teeth isn't the best way to impart knowledge. Perhaps we "superior beings" should keep this in mind, and cut others a little slack instead of cutting them down? It doesn't take much extra effort to say, "You can find the answer over here, and for future reference, perhaps you should do such-and-such," instead of, "Go Google it, you noob a**hole!" (Okay, I haven't actually seen anyone call someone "a**hole," but that's the sentiment nonetheless.)
