DROID Incredible Sees CM7 Release Candidate

Anyone with a DROID Incredible feel like running Android 2.3.2 (Gingerbread)?  Then you may want to check out the CyanogenMod 7 Release Candidate that appears to have been released yesterday.  As you all know, the CM team works ridiculously hard to bring you the newest versions of Android long before you’ll ever see them from a carrier or manufacturer.  And remember, this is as stock as it gets.

Full support and download links at the CM forums.  Changelog.

Cheers kly412!

    Wow nice phone
    I want to buy that one..
    I hope it will be cheaper

  • RonsterWVU

    Stupid Motorola…
    Always holding the working man back….

    Atleast HTC gets it. I’ll be honest, I probably wouldnt even load this on my phone. But to have the option, is half the battle!

  • Lance

    In installed this last night…while it works, the market is missing so you can’t install anything. Also – it doesn’t have the initial setup. Not sure what the point is – pretty much a useless build.

    • PSU_DI

      You have to load to the google addon zip, CM provides then you have a fully working build.

  • Officerwrangler

    Nice

    Loaded it and running just fine. It does not have sense so it’s taking me a little time to get use to. Battery life is excellent and it does 1% increments. Wi-Fi, GPS no issues. I came from Redemption. I do like it so far but really miss the sense :-(

    • Wajewwa

      My favorite part about Sense (and Uncommon Sense post root) was the clock and weather interface. I downloaded Weather & Toggle Widget and use that for the same effect. There are a ton of different skins for it so you can personalize it as you see fit. I’m partial to Dirty Paper I believe it’s called.

    i just rooted last week – should i pull the trigger and have this be my first rom?

    • Wajewwa

      I’ve been using OMGB for a few weeks now, and I love it. Great battery life, much smoother interface. Do it!

  • JP

    I’ve been soft-rooted on my DINC for some time, just for mobile hotspot and for Titanium Backup, but this could get me to finally jump back into custom ROMs. Always loved running Cyanogen’s and Liquid’s ROMs on my OG.

    DO NOT FLASH THIS. It is broken. Read the sticky on the forum. Not rocket science. They are aware and pushing an update “soon.”

      This is one of the main reasons im getting a Thunderbolt. Never should of sold my Incredible for the Droid X. The screen size caught my attention but this locked boot loader gets on my nerves.

    i have the new nightly of cm7 on my droid finally fixes bluetooth issues, works with my bluetooth blackberry stereo gateway

    this is a re-dubbed rc0, go read the thread and skip it.

    wife got a free BB from work and sold her Dinc a couple months ago. She’s really missing her phone now, tee hee hee. I warned her.

    Does anyone know of any good videos that can walk me through the WHOLE process? I’m not too comfortable with flashing the rom and all that good stuff…

    • Anonymous

      I’d really like that too! The only thing holding me back is fear of messing it up & ruining my phone. This ROM looks sweet though!

        guys its still rc0, go read the thread. don’t bother

          Thanks, I know it walks you through the steps but I would like to see it in action also, I’m afraid I will brick my phone and be SOL for awhile… haha

    That picture is much better.

  • Sputnick

    I have the OG Droid. I don’t see the CM7 RC in ROM Manager nor do I see Pete’s new BB in there either. I know I can go get them on the websites, just wondering why they aren’t available in ROM Manager.

    • eddieonofre

      that is coz cm haven’t released a release candidate for the OG Droid yet
      and I think peter alfonso haven’t released a BB7 (based on gingerbread) neither.

      • Sputnick

        Peter has actually on his website. I have it running on my test Droid.

        • eddieonofre

          but what Pete has is a stock-ish rooted Gingerbread ROM

      CM7 for the og droid is located in the cm nightlies section ( first one in premium edition rom manager). They are one build number 32 as of today I believe. ChevyNo1 has a gingerbread rom out based on cm7 that is avaible in rom manager as well. As for bb and liquid they both have gingerbread roms avaible but you have to get them off the internet. I. Have tried all of them and I personaly feel that CM7 with its nightly updates is the most stable.

      • Sputnick

        Yeah I was running the nightlies for awhile. Because of this news I figured there would be an RC available.

  • Dan

    Why no CM love for the Droid X? I like Liberty but would love CM7 or 6

    • Johnny

      Locked Bootloader ftl

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=545634778 Alan Paone

      Because you don’t have androidiani or kabladan or edgard castro working like crazy to make it happen. Us Milestoneres have the very same locked bootloader, but we got stock GB before the DROID. Kabladan looks to be trying to make the Milestone an official CM7 device.

  • Droid1294

    Its amazing how quick cm is. Samsung still hasn’t even updated the galaxy s series to froyo.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Comineeyeaha Brian Walker

      Sure they have. Internationally they’re all on Froyo, the Vibrant just got it’s update, and the other ones are just waiting on the carrier to release it.

  • Johnny

    If ive been running the nightlies, and I go to the rc, do I have to wipe? Or am I good

    • KGB

      You shouldn’t have to wipe

      • Johnny

        iight I didnt think so. Thanks

      I’ve noticed a lot of the time people have issues with ROMs is when they don’t wipe data/cache. Not always obvious immediate problems, could be the reason your phone has a random restart every couple hours or you music player wont work correctly.

      Wouldn’t hurt to try it without but don’t complain about issues if you haven’t You could be making the dev chase issues that don’t really exist.

      You’re good, I switched from the nightlies to the RC without a problem.

    Having trouble getting it running… after I reboot I get the touch the android screen and it refuses to acknowledge that I have touched the android. If I tap the corners to skip activation, i get all sorts of force closes. Anyone else have any luck?

    • Debbinkm

      I had this problem before. I reinstalled and installed google apps right after installing the rom in the bootloader and it worked

          i think we get the point!! you’ve said its rc0 three times now!! i installed it on my DINC and its a lot more polished than nightly#37 (imo).. if you have a DINC and want 2.3 then install this ROM and be happy

  • http://twitter.com/vdefender Taylor A.

    For those of you who don’t realize this, CM7 is a stock build of android for your Droid Incredible, it will not have HTC sense on it. I think the picture for this article was poorly chosen as it shows Sense…

        Hey Kellex,

        Not sure if you’re aware of this yet but Ultimate Droid recently released UD3.0 which is a stable 2.3.2 rom for multiple devices. I’ve been running it on the OG for about 48 hours now and haven’t had any issues. Here is the thread:

          • palomosan

            I ran that one before and it messed up my Incredible really bad, I don’t know how stable is now but be careful.

          • mikeym0p

            It’s much more fluid, and stable then CyanogenMod is in it’s current state. I get 100+ hour uptimes, usually the only time the phone reboots is if I flash a new kernel and need the recovery.
            Cyanogen RC1 just rebooted when I uninstalled an app. You should give OMFGB 1.1.1 an openminded try one more time around.

  • Brian

    Hmm.. I just loaded fusion gingerbread on my friends Inc last night and it runs great. I know a lot of it is based off of CM so I wonder if it would be worth it to go to CM7.

    That was quick! How are a dozen devs beating a dozen multinationals?

    • http://twitter.com/jbernard703 Jeff Bernard

      Because CM caters to a customer base who accepts and expects bugs. Your mom would not be happy if her phone boot looped, something that CM(and other custom ROMs) has done to me on a regular basis.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=545634778 Alan Paone

        Weird, my milestone has been bootloop free, and I’ve been rocking cm7 ‘pre-alpha’ quasi-nightlies since the begining of the month. Almost all of the bugs have to do with the fact that we can only use kernels that are leaked from Motorola, you know, the multinational. Its less buggy than the official 2.2 update thats out right now in spain and germany.

        • http://twitter.com/jbernard703 Jeff Bernard

          YMMV

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=545634778 Alan Paone

            The official updates bricked the Samsung Intercept and Bell Vibrant. Mileage always varies, everywhere. The point is that Cyanogenmod is more reliable than the companies they are competing with, and they work faster.

    Sweet. If only the could crack the Droid X soon…or the Droid Pro. Either one is cool with me :)

    • Tino

      it’ll never happen for the dx or pro, both have locked bootloaders, there are roms out there for the x, but they work around the original kernel, with a locked bootloader you can’t change the kernel

      trade it in for an HTC, Moto doesn’t want Cyanogenmod on their phones

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=545634778 Alan Paone

            Its a software lock. You can get partway around it, enough thatit works. There’s a BOINC project to bruteforce the RSA keys on the milestone, it’ll take a million years. at best. If it was a hardware issue it could be done in a few hundred hours.
