awesome! can't wait for cm10!!!
let me ask, who's really having THAT much of a better experience on RC1 rather than RC0? because on RC1 I was gettin some random reboots and the battery life wasn't as good IMO, I use RC0 as my base for provision and it's workin wonders :D, I'll also use cm10 as my base for Provision the PVteam releases their JB update
RC1 was definitely better for me. Back on Nightlies now though.

Can anyone tell which is better the CyanogenMod 9.0 RC1 by CyanogenMod, or this CM9 ROM?

The build on this thread is way outta date. Go nightlies.

RC1 was definitely better for me. Back on Nightlies now though.

RC1 was very good. Loaded 0712 the other day and I'm finding it to be extremely responsive. Not sure what changed, but data loads seem much faster and switching between apps is better. Think I'll stick to this build for a while.

Judging from the amount of time that's passed since I last flashed and the length of the changelogs since then I think I know the answer to this question, but I'll ask it anyway just to see what the masses think.

I'm currently running the 06/06 nightly and would like to come up to date by flashing the 07/15 nightly. I don't normally do a full wipe when going from one nightly to another, especially since the Android version hasn't changed, but what would you recommend? Do you think enough file system/under-the-hood stuff has changed since 06/06 to warrant a full wipe?

Thanks,

you could always flash and see, if you start getting strange things happening then wipe
I would recommend wiping cache and dalvik cache no matter what

Ha, well said! :laugh:

Yes, this is true, and is most likely the route I would take if I wanted to try it first without a full wipe. :good:

Like I said, I pretty much knew the answer before asking, but thought I'd see what the consensus was. I may give it a go the way cojonesx mentioned first just to see if I can avoid having to set up all my home screens, settings, & preferences again; but in the end I'll probably end up doing the full wipe anyway.

Looks like RC2 has been released.

EDIT:
I've only used the rom for a total of about 15mins, but so far, it seems much more responsive and faster than RC1. I will report back later when I've had more time to play around with it.

    Everything works great and loving the new boot screen!!

    But...

    Where in the blue hell did face unlock go?? I LOVED that feature!! Not that I like seeing my own face every time I want to unlock my phone, but I LOVED playing with it!! And it only seemed to get smarter and smarter every time I updated it..

    I hadn't updated my nightly build for a while (in fact, I've been sticking with cm7 as my daily until they got the bugs worked out..), and now that I'm trying it again, I find LESS features (in other areas too, such as the removed governors in the cpu controls, and the inability to use voodoo due to the stock cm9 kernel not having the parts)??

    THE ENTIRE POINT OF CM WAS to give us a feature-rich, near-fully-customizable experience, and now a lot of the stuff has been shut down that CM7 had??!! WTF!!

    C'mon maintainer team!! Stop shutting down the customizations that made CM rock in the first place!!

    I was a developer for the moto backflip forum on m3, so this bitching is not coming from just an everyday user experience, and I would just compile my own from cm source with the overlays (or modding with my own code), but it's obviously been done a few times using Google source (e.g. oICS and The Orca Project), and I simply don't have the time anymore since I work 2 jobs now!

    Can we PLEASE get back some more of the customizations that made me fall in love with CM 2 years ago??

    Now, don't get me wrong.. as I said in the beginning, it looks and runs great, as-is.. but robbing Peter to pay Paul (because yes, I've seen some custom work in other areas, such as with the launcher) is not the right way to handle things..

    Just my 2 cents on everything..

    Peace..
    ~Wickid~

    I'm gonna to try to answer your questions without flaming you but it's difficult....

    1. Face Unlock comes from the Gapps you use, not the ROM.
    2. Voodoo features are already included in the ROM. DSP for Voodoo Sound features and the colors can be adjusted in the included settings without installing Voodoo.
    3. No one cares how busy you are, Kalim is probably a busy man too.
    4. Developer or not, stupid post is stupid post.
    5. Stop shouting, you're an idiot.
