For a while I've been randomly uploading pure cm7 builds for the dream and sapphire as cm made cool changes. At this point, cm7 seems "finished" (the cm team is focusing entirely on cm10 it seems), so I stopped making pure builds. Instead, I will be pulling useful features in and attempt to make a stable, yet feature packed rom.

Release 0.01 (released on September 17 at 00:05) is just cyanogenmod 7.2 with launcher2 and magpie. More features to come.

Requirements:
A htc dream or sapphire 32b with at least danger spl (1.33.0013d spl and 2.22.28.25 radio recommended) or an old radio 32a. I test on a mytouch 3g 1.2 with 1.33.0013d and 2.22.28.25.

Flashing instructions.
1. Download the rom, kernel, and optionally gapps to your sdcard.
2. Make sure you are in recovery mode with a custom recovery.
3. If you are coming from any other rom besides the pure cm7 builds on dw9906's thread, wipe userdata, cache, sd-ext, and system.
4. Apply any custom mtd setup you wish. I don't use custom mtd so I don't know what sizes are best for this rom. (Optional)
5. Flash the rom
6. Feed the cat. he's very hungry. Neglecting your animals so you can flash roms constantly is bad.
7. Flash the kernel.
8. Flash gapps
9. Reboot.
10. Enjoy.


Downloads:
Rom: http://www.mediafire.com/?gkdvgk7l6mrz94u
Kernel: ezgb kernels
Gapps: I don't include or distribute these. You should know where to find them.

Bugs: none I know of

Features: magpie, launcher2

Future features: autokernel. Kernel built with linaro. Kernel with bfs.

Thanks to:
Google - android
CyanogenMod team - the awesome rom
Firerat - magpie
Ezterry and AndDiSa - kernel
Infinimint and the united dev team - hosting and support
My girlfriend - for putting up with this time consuming hobby. I love her. :)

Sources coming soon. My current setup is a little messed up. Need to fix it.

Note: rules on using this rom for other projects
Most of android is under the apache2 license. just don't violate that and we're good.

more specific rules: source is on my github, do whatever you want within the terms of the licences. make your own rom, use it to port other devices, release a rom that is exactly the same with a new name and a shiny theme, I don't care as long as you are building from source.
If you use prebuilt anything from releases of this rom, please be nice and send me a pm asking for permission. this is supposed to be an open community, but i hate seeing 20+ cm7 roms with nothing different except name and bundled apps. If you don't ask, and you havent made something different enough from this rom to be worth having its own thread, it may or may not get reported.

Link not working on Opera Mini

That's weird, using Opera Mini the ROM download on MediaFire isn't working... left it for ages but remained on "0/52.46Mb". The kernel downloaded fine though :eek:

Oh well, working now, gonna try it as Cronmod is being slow on me :(

i was wondering, what's the difference between the "linaro" and the usual kernel build?

The linaro toolchain has a ton of arm optimizations that should make stuff compiled with it perform better. Cm was considering using it to build pretty much all of cm9, but found it caused random stability issues.

My girlfriend has been running the kernel for days and has yet to have any major issues. She also hasn't said if it helps..

    it should. I don't have access to a 32a so i'll have to wait for you to confirm

    Ok, unless somebody else does it, i will try these days for sure.

    It flashes and boots normally on 32A devices with old radio. :D:D
