perfect! i'll erase all my data and such and do a fresh clean install with the newest rc3.

rc3 or newest nightly, though?

following these releases are exciting, so glad i rooted!

OH, just had a thought, too. I am running the Ext4All Mod and Incredikernel.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1623038

could they be a source of my resets and other random problems? or those mods wouldn't affect my phone like that?

The incredikernel and Ext4 mod shouldn't be the cause. I'm using the ICS incredikernel (non hwa) with this without reboots. It's possible but with my experience it's been rock steady. I'll move up to RC3 later today.

Once the RC3 version is available for download, what version of GAPPS should you use? Sorry, been a long time since I've been on CM.

For some reason, my GPS function doesn't seem to work properly, maps is way off and none of the speedometer apps can connect either( main reason I noticed) tried the GPS fix and reverting back to the original but to no avail. Anyone have this issue before?
I'm not on the latest nightly, I think I'm on pons latest...

I think I'll pass. RC1 has been working perfectly for me. ICS incredikernel, SmartassV2, OCed to the max, under-volted 50mv high and low.

Edit: OK trying it. The trick for me was to reinstall Incredikernel 3/21 immediately after the update. The stock kernel can't handle my OC and undervolt settings, which get carried over. And there is no SmartassV2.

Running it now with Symphony of Colors live wallpaper while zooming the app drawer. Seems smoother and snappier. Timeout works. Ran Stability Test for 15 mins

Anyone have issues getting wireless tether to work? Do you have to use the default CM version? (And where is it?)

Edit: Nevermind, got it working.

I'm on RC3 and noticed that screen timeout delay does not seem to work. I'll set a pin lock then go into CM Settings/Lockscreen/Delay and Timeout. Here is where I would typically set my settings to 10 minute delay so I can turn off/turn on my screen without seeing my pin lockscreen for up to 10 minutes. It's not a big deal just curious if anyone else noticed this.

Edit: of course after posting this, I figure out that I just wasn't setting the delay for the correct settings ( the top two, not the bottom two), problem solved.

My GPS is perfect on the latest nightly. I'd recommend upgrading; you probably don't even need to do a full wipe.

Not sure what is going on with it. I even tried going back to my original 2.2 Sense backup, still doesn't work. I wonder if its a hardware issue. Maybe try a RUU?

You could try that and see if it helps as long as you're still s-off then feel free. My only other suggestion is to full wipe and flash the rom. I can't see why the camera app would force close and cause issues across multiple roms unless it was hardware failure like you suspect.

Yes I am S-OFF. And yes I tried multiple wipes of data, cache. I didn't try formatting system thou. I will try that first, then if it still doesn't then RUU.

hey, my phone is running kinda okay. there are a few force closes, rare, but there. maybe i need to fix permissions? i did a clean install, erased all data, etc, however, i restored apps using titanium.

i can hit "fix permissions" from rom manager, but i can also do so from cwr. which to do? i have heard that amon ra does a great job or fixing permissions, too, should i use that? how do i do that, then?

    CM7.1 Nightlies

    A friendly reminder from slayher:
    "Everyone needs to remember that the CM team has made no releases yet. It's labeled RC0, and new code is going in everyday. Sometimes things are going to break, sometimes features are going to be removed, then added, then removed, then added back. Sometimes regular apps may just not work (adfree) because this a new version of android using new and updated API's. Keep that in mind. To the CM team, you are flashing ALPHA software. Not beta, not a Release Candidate.

    Just to restate some stuff to the people who didn't read the entire Crackflashers' Thread.

    This kernel has been patched with a backport of the .35 kernel in order for USB tethering and mounting to work. Flash a different kernel, and those features break. Period.

    Second, the kernel that is provided is what we have found to be the most capable, but most stable kernel for the most people. We are not using highly customized kernels with every acronym you can think of because we are going for maximum compatibility.

    Third, make sure you have updated HBOOT (.92), radio images (2.15 series). The newer seem to be working much better.

    Fourth, if you hate this and think it's slow, great, don't use it. If you love it, and think it's the best thing to happen to your phone, great, use it. The point here is choice, run what ROM has the features and speed you want. If you want these features, but something isn't working for you, ask for help from others running the ROM. And don't forget it's still ALPHA."

    Kernel​

    A refresher from slayher:
    "This (included/stock) kernel has been patched with a backport of the .35 kernel in order for USB tethering and mounting to work. Flash a different kernel, and those features break. Period.
    Second, the kernel that is provided is what we have found to be the most capable, but most stable kernel for the most people. We are not using highly customized kernels with every acronym you can think of because we are going for maximum compatibility."

    FAQ



    Q: What's the ETA on....about how long till...when can I expect....?
    A: The only rule of CyanogenMod: You don't ask for ETAs.


    Q: Now that the Ice Cream Sandwich SDK has dropped, we're getting a port, right?!
    A: Take a look at this PSA by Keyan Mobil


    Q: What's this CM7.1, Android 2.3.7 business?
    A: The nightlies are built on CM7.1, which is Android 2.3.7, while the RC's (so far) are built on Android 2.3.3. Do NOT downgrade without a full wipe.


    Q: How do I install CM7, coming from non-CM7?
    A: From ciwrl, Head Moderator at http://forum.cyanogenmod.com/ "As we start the RC phase of CM7, many of you are now taking the leap from CM6 stable to the new RC's. Some of you may be able to get away with doing this without a wipe; however, most of you will not be that lucky. Differences in the rom, files system, and even Google Addons will likely throw most of you into boot loops. Therefore, here is my recommended upgrade path:
    1) Nandroid backup your current rom
    2) Update your recovery to the latest available (CWR is my choice)
    3) Format system via recovery
    4) Wipe/Factory reset
    5) Flash CM7 then Google addon

    If any of you have data that you must absolutely save, then and only then should you use Titanium backup (or other backup apps) to restore your data. Please be sure not to restore any data to /system using these apps, as this will mostly likely corrupt your ROM and/or Market."

    Granted the above method says from CM6 to CM7, but it pretty much applies to any non-CM7 to CM7.


    Q: How do I update from RC to nightly, stable to nightly, nightly to nightly, (basically, forwards) etc?
    A: The safest (definitely not the only, but my preferred) way is
    Download ROM with Rom Manager Premium.
    Do not install with Rom Manager
    Reboot into recovery.
    Make a backup/nandroid (to be safe)
    Wipe Cache
    Wipe Dalvik
    Install Zip from SDCard
    Nightly at /sdcard/clockworkmod/download/mirror.teamdouche.net/get/inc/
    /Gapps at sdcard/clockworkmod/download/goo-inside.me/google-apps/
    Reboot
    Enjoy



    Q: How about that 720P? I hear it's handy.
    A: Per slayher, "720P recording will not be coming to CM7 at this time. We *MAY* see it later if we get an HTC GB leak, using an MSM device (aka not omap). But for now, if you HAVE to have 720P recording, stick with CM6. The issue is that GB uses stagefright, and the hack it took to get 720p in CM6 wont work with stagefright. (it was done in opencore.) This is why we cant get it. The current driver implementation we have to work with is just not capable. So there you go, you can stop wondering/asking/hoping."

    Q: How about CWM3/5? I'm having a problem where....
    A: Try deleting the current recovery first.

    Q: How do I fix the space error that pops up when I try to install some apps?
    A: Per slayher, "If you get a Space error trying to install apps, just try installing again. I have encountered this error also and it is not related to actual free space, (unless you have a cubic crap ton (crapton * crapton * crapton) of apps installed)."

    Q: How do I disable the shutter sound?
    A: Per mattyg151, "I used root explorer to rename /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg to camera_click!.ogg ... no more camera shutter sound."
    There is also an option at Menu > Settings > CyanogenMod setting > Sound > Mute camera shutter

    Q: How do I increase the WiFi scan time to save battery life?
    A: Per karnovaran, "One way to reduce battery drain is to increase the WiFi scan interval. It's set to 45 seconds, meaning it will scan every 45 seconds. If you change it to something like 90, obviously it will scan less often and use less battery. To do this, you have to edit the build.prop file in /system. The easiest way is with Root Explorer. Go to /system, mount r/w, open the build.prop in text editor and locate "wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=45" Change that value to 90 or whatever you want. Save the file, mount back to r/o, and reboot."

    Q: Those automatic brightness settings are confusing. Anyone know of a good setting/rough guide?
    A: This thread looks useful. So does this post

    Q: How does that brightness slider thingey-majib work?
    A: Per byrong "For those of you trying to figure out the new brightness-adjust-via-statusbar feature, do the following:
    1. Settings > CM Settings > Interface > Status Bar Tweaks > StatusBar brightness (I'm guessing you guys already figured this part out)
    2. Here's the trick: place your finger on the status bar, but don't drag it down. It will still 'peek' out some, but now you'll want to slowly drag your finger to the left or right while keeping it on the status bar itself. If you drag left, the screen will get darker; right for bright."

    Q: I can't send no fancy mms picture messages!
    A: Change you APN settings manually, (a popular way is to use GoSMS). MMSC: http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms MMS proxy: leave empty MMS port: 80 Any more I should add? Let me know.

    Q: My bluetooth isn't working right.
    And what does Mr. CUViper have to say about it?
    For a fix, CUViper made a patch, and I added it to the stock cm kernel, and here's the 10/08 incredikernel: 2.6.38.8-incredikernel-gb-11042011.zip
    If you need it on a different kernel, let me know.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Credits/Thanks​

    All credit goes to the CM team, and especially our DInc maintainers, as listed by the CyanogenMod site: jistone (aka CUViper), slayher, and of course, Koush.
    Also, a huge thanks goes to sykopompos (formerly gridlock32404) for hosting the unofficial nightly/hourly "Crackflasher Builds" and keeping the crackflashers happy with 4+ builds a day. Good times, good times.

    Anyone I miss?

    720P aint gonna happen.

    Here is an update for everyone, Please updated the OP! Cause we all know people read the OP.

    720P recording will not be coming to CM7 at this time. We *MAY* see it later if we get an HTC GB leak, using an MSM device (aka not omap). But for now, if you HAVE to have 720P recording, stick with CM6.

    The issue is that GB uses stagefright, and the hack it took to get 720p in CM6 wont work with stagefright. (it was done in opencore.) This is why we cant get it. The current driver implementation we have to work with is just not capable.

    So there you go, you can stop wondering/asking/hoping.

    And BTW I am OK after the accident, just not the Van. I think its going to be one of those face f*cks where we are within ~$200 of being totaled, so they will wanna fixit. WTF. FAIL. FML.

    Alright, alot going on here. Lets clear a couple things up.

    1. Nightly builds are optional. No where near required. Nightly builds are a beta test that gets released early. Its not possible for us the devs and maintainers to test every little aspect of the ROM. So we release nightlys to get some input/test the waters of the new stuff getting integrated. This is why you only see bug reports being accepted for RC's (aka rc1).

    2. Part of the reason Build Bot died and nightlys aren't being pumped out religiously is due to the shear number of devices we build for now. The build bot could not maintain a connection to the server and was failing miserably. Alot of work went into getting it fixed, and is still being looked at.

    3. If you look at review.cyanogenmod.com you will notice merges are happening alot slower now. Most stuff now is translations, and a few device specific fixes, and maybe a bug fix here or there. For most of us, nightly builds at this point would be the same for a few days anyway.

    4. Everyone that is part of the CM team, has other **** too, full time jobs, families, hell I myself have 5 kids, a pregnant wife and am in the military. I cant tell you the amount of times I have been in hot water with the wife, trying to get fixes/new kernels/etc out to gerrit, and ultimately you guys. (<-This used to be a daily basis btw)

    5. Remember what your phone is for ;) . Its for entertainment, phone calls (? wtf is that right?) Txts, pictures, video, the list goes on. Its nice for it to be like xmas morning waiting to see what new features you get to unwrap, but between builds/releases enjoy your phone!

    6. Try to keep in mind how awesome CM is. To give some perspective, think about how many devs/roms/whatever they are "require" donations for early builds or "subscriber" builds. If you want beta it requires a $5 donation. And then also notice how many of those guys use CM as the base, whether they admit it or not. :D

    I guess the overall point here is, enjoy your phone, and xmas will come eventually. Waiting a day or 2 more for a build is not going to kill you. :p BTW you guys flash 5 times more than I do lol. And I am the one trying to get the DINC fully functional haha!

    if you're bored how about some help on the auto backlight settings?

    The ones I got from the thread in the OP:

    Automatic backlight
    Light Sensor filter
    Enable check
    WIndow lenght 60s
    Reset threshold 800 lux
    Sample interval 2s

    Light levels
    Use custom check
    Screen dim level 20 (default)

    Edit other levels...
    0 30
    85 45
    160 55
    193 60
    225 75
    273 80
    320 82
    480 84

    6900 120
    8000 150
    9120 175
    10240 255
    (buttons, the first two are 255, all others are 0)

    Allow light decrease check
    Decrease hysteresis 50%

    This is more or less from the post in the OP. I haven't spent enough time to tweak to my liking,

    Ok guys try this out. Not sure how long my DropBox will handle the load,

    2.6.37 Beta Kernel MD5 Sum 558eb7a998ec56d8b8bbbe1a3d46f86a

    Kernel Source

    Maybe add it to the OP also. test it out, abuse it, See what happens.

    As usual I am not responsible for any pregnancies (except my wife) stolen left shoes, or damage to your phone.

    You can toss input to @layherdaddy on twitter, or here.

    AND.. I dont know if/when this will get merged into nightlys or CM7. This is mainly a wide scale testing run. I want this to be done right not just **** thrown together.

    Thanks!
