 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please

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.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

  1. Root the device and install ClockworkMod Recovery. Instructions are available here.
  2. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.
  3. Format the system, data & cache partitions of your device.
  4. Perform a factory reset.
  5. Flash CyanogenMod.
  6. Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package.
Upgrading from earlier version of CyanogenMod 7?
  1. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.
  2. Flash CyanogenMod (your Google Apps will be backed up & restored automatically).
Issues?

Experience issues? Please provide the following info:
  • If the device was hard reboot, please provide the file "/proc/last_kmsg".

2 Quick Questions

1) If I hit cancel when I was going to install Google Apps, what's the method to bring up the process again other than flashing everything again?

2) Is there any way to get rid of the signal bars for calls? I don't remember it from the previous releases (or maybe I just never noticed it on my NC.)

Outstanding!

Now for a possibly stupid question. I upgraded to nightly 214 last night. Are there any significant differences between that and 7.1?

1. Just flash gapps. Only gapps.

2. A reboot or 2 usually clears that up.

It still seems to have the deep sleep issue, hung on me after 2 hrs of standby with the wifi on. Battery drained to zero too.

I should add that I didnt delete the data partition on upgrading, and had the issue beforehand.

I posted on the standard CM7 thread as well, but yes, I also had an SOD this morning on 7.1.0. I've installed Wi-Fi Keep Alive for now from the market to see if that helps.

Battery life seems pretty epic.watched over 2 hours of video and still on 80%.. I wish err could lower the screen brightness add low as miui allows seems to reduce battery strain further when watching video.

I use quick settings to adjust many things including brightness. Most movie players (such as Mobo) also have gesture support to change brightness as the movie is playing.

Bummer... it seems it still crashes if you have too many apps installed to the SD card.
I wish more people experienced this, so maybe it might actually get fixed...

Oh well, looks like it's back to N136 for me...
