CyanogenMod 7 Release Candidate 2 Available, DROID Incredible Included

A new batch of CyanogenMod 7 release candidates went out last night, including one for our brother the DROID Incredible.  Should you choose to accept your mission of flashing this latest CM build, your Dinc will be running the most current version of Android that is available, 2.3.3.  I’d try to highlight bits of the changelog, but it’s extensive.  I did notice a “Customizable app launcher on rotary lockscreen” which I’m dying to see and am hoping it’s a lot more stable than that GOTO Lockscreen was.

And once you are running this, remember that you can start playing with Google Music syncing to the mysterious cloud.  Anyone already running this new CM?

Head over to the CM Incredible forums for download links.

Cheers kly412!

    Everyone hating on their DX should really consider ApeX 1.4.1, I really love it! not to mention the themes are soo sick!

    I have tried numerous times to get RC2 to load, but it hangs at the CM7 Logo Bootup animation. I’ve tried before and after wiping to stock (root only), etc. I’ve used CM7 RC1, but now I don’t think I’m even able to get that one to load. So weird, as I’ve flashed many of the custom roms.

    • dubs

      I’m having the same issue here. Cleared and wiped and has been sitting on the cyanogen 7 spinning screen for probably 5 minutes or more now…

        Interesting. I love all the developers out there that have taken their time to port things, and create the rom goodies we’ve enjoyed, but I’ve noticed that there really isn’t any 100% working roms any more. I wonder if it’ll only get harder…

  • ButtonBoy

    I have been using nightlies on CM7 and it is GREAT! There are a few minor things I miss about Sense- like the ringtones. Umm. That’s about all.

    Is this ever coming to og droid…? if not, i think i’ll just take pete’s rom.

    For the fsck fix I posted earlier, run it twice in a row. That should get you good to go even after a reboot.
    Right now, in RC2 There is an issue with the vold system and formating the sdcard. Due to some hardware numbering conflicts there is a chance that it will attempt to format your /data instead of /sdcard. If it does this you will get bootloops, because /data will be the wrong filesystem.

    The fixes for the fsck, and the formating issue were merged late last night. (Read ~6 hours after RC2) So any builds after this morning should be good.

    As for the USB lockups with USB Debugging. I believe (may be wrong) that its an issue with how the USB ids are presented to the host system. I think windows is having issues with this, and linux/mac osx are not. (again I could be wrong)

    quote from slayer for the sd card issue if anyone is having.

    Wait, the DX has a locked bootloader?

  • John Smith

    why can’t it record 720p?

  • k$

    should I root my Droid Inc? I’ve had it since August.. and I’ve been visiting this site for more than a year.. I really want to but just scared

    • http://www.facebook.com/borgey401 Andrew Borges

      There is nothing to be scared of. To be honest having a phone fully unlocked with s-off and all that I can unbrick my phone from ALMOST any situation. Except a bad radio flash or something like that (which people shouldn’t be messing with anyways)

    the droid version has a ‘profile’ option
    havent been able to do anything with it because im at work but i noticed it when i turned it off this morning, to get to it you have to hold the power button. i noticed this on build 13, im not sure how long it has actually been there though – hasnt been long

    also im kind of upset they dont include a stock launcher with cm7

  • http://twitter.com/mhendersonco Mike Henderson

    Very exciting. Looking at flashing my stock ROM to this when it hits stable.

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

    We’ve had that lockscreen on the milestone port for awhile. Its friggin cool. I like swipign down to unlock so much that I usually forget to swipe sideways for my sms and waste a few precious seconds.

    When will we ever see this for the Droid 2?

  • jcdagget

    Will the DInc ever get an official 2.3 update and how about some Sense 2.0 love?

  • Anonymous

    I will have to try CM7 later this evening, right now I am running Liquid Smooth Rom GB 1.31 very fast, stable and no lag, extremely happy with this ROM So I am looking forard to flashing the CM7 :)

  • http://twitter.com/eldiablopotato eldiablopotato

    How do CyanogenMod releases work? Will ever updated CyanogenMod 7 be labeled as RC 1, 2, 3, etc… Or will there eventually be a CyanogenMod 7 stable/final build?

    • Temp123

      I’m pretty sure that they do RCs until the official release.

      • http://twitter.com/eldiablopotato eldiablopotato

        Ok, thanks!

  • derickmc

    I’ve been running the latest CM7 nightly… doesnt look like much of a difference between build #13 and the new RC2… I’m downloading anyway though.

  • Skilcher

    So is this latest update still Gingerbread or Honeycomb? I’ve been running their Gingerbread for about a month and very pleased with it. No bloatware and gained over 100 megs on memory, thus prolongs my battery life. :-} If this the new Honeycome, I will download, but I thought it was Android 3.0…

    • Skilcher

      Nevermind, I see it’s still Gingerbread. I may DL it and flash it anyway because I do not have TTS ability, this may fix that issue…

    • MikeD

      Why would you want Honeycomb, which is android designed for tablets, on the dinc anyway? The next version for phones will be Ice Cream.

      • Skilcher

        Wasn’t aware of that and wasn’t sure if there was going to be a Honeycomb for cells. Oh, I love ice cream. :) Thanks for the info.

    the XOOM is only 639.99 at costco.com

      Plus a 60 day return policy with no restocking fee (and I think they extend the warranty, too). Oh, and you can snag a chicken bake, some pizza, and a hot dog on the way out.

      <3 Costco. It makes me want to move to Kirkland.

    Downloaded it, everything works great, it just doesn’t recognize my SD Card

      It takes a little while. Try posting about it on xda, mine showed up about a picosecond after I click ‘post’ to complain.

    • Guestxoom

      i have posted my problem with that on incredibleforums and it happens to be a bug in RC 2..get the nightly after RC2 it should prob. be fixed….mine started bootlooping on RC2

    Anyone tried this and know if it fixes all the force closes the RC1 had? For the Incredible I mean.

    • Anonymous

      I also had FC issues on RC1, so I’ve been running Nightly #11 instead. After boot my Launcher Pro force closes once, but other than that I have zero issues with it. Perhaps a random reboot once a week.

    • crack

      Run the fix permissions app inside of rom manager, fixes those issues. If you’re still having issues uninstall the app and reinstall it.

        Rom Manager kept crashing

    I have been running the nightlys on my OG for a little over a month now and it VERY fast also I have only had 2 or 3 random restarts. This has been an awesome experience.

    Im starting to hate my droid x it will never see cm7

    • Djenks24

      I’m feeling your pain. I gave my wife my original Droid and now she has the best phone:(

      • EC8CH

        not just the best phone… the best phone EVER.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

      I definitely hate my DX, but the fact that I paid full retail makes it even worse. My contract is up in June and I can’t wait to get a new Android phone that doesn’t have a locked bootloader.

    • Vire

      The current maintainer of the OG Droid is also working on supporting the Droid X for CM7 as well. CVPS has mentioned it a few times over on his twitter page.

      • http://www.facebook.com/borgey401 Andrew Borges

        Yeah I doubt that will happen but I hope so for you guys. I personally couldn’t take it and got rid of that phone thankfully.

        • tanknspank

          It will happen, just like aosp 2.2 happened for the X, albeit with some bugs, but it’s a feat that has been completed nontheless.

          Where there is cvpcs, there is a way.

    • JagoX

      Well if all goes well I’m hearing that CM is being ported to the Droid X and that it (I think) is able to boot up now. May not have some of the fancy features that might require kernel tweaks but it’s better then nothing :)

    • http://twitter.com/deadly_v2 Jeff Stewart

      dont worry i just “upgraded” my dx to the dinc w/cm7 and loving it

  • Anonymous

    Kellex, the OG CM7 nightlies have had the custom app launcher for a few builds now and it works perfectly. you slide the rotary down instead of right to unlock and open w.e app u set it to in CM settings.

    Hey guys have a question hopefully I can get answered here. I have been rooting and romming my phone since the OG was released and have been following this site ever since. I upgraded to the Inc. Bcuz it was open and rooted it. Ever since I cannot use my browser without it closing itself… I have tried wiping I have tried multiple roms and kernels and cannot relieve this problem. Any suggestions out there from ppl smarter than myself. Any help is appreciated.

    • Anonymous

      I was going to tell you its probably your rom or kernel, but apparently not. On the OG that is sometimes an issue (not really with the browser though, for me) but its because the system is running out of ram. I would think the DINC should be a lot better than this though, as it has 512mb of ram. Maybe you have a lot of background apps running? Thats really all i can think of. Is it only your browser that closes on you?

  • Temp123

    I’m running the latest CM7 nightly on my OG Droid. There was not RC 1 or 2 for OG Droid. Anyone know why? Also, anyone seeing exchange email stop refreshing after a while? A reboot fixes this for a while, but it never sticks. Would love some advice on this.

    • Anonymous

      They’re still on nightlies for our phones. Not ready for RC status yet

    • http://twitter.com/starnovsky Stan Tarnovsky

      I think you answered your question. :)

      • Temp123

        Thanks :) , but I don’t think rebooting once an hour is the answer. In CM6, my exchange mail never stopped working.

        • http://twitter.com/starnovsky Stan Tarnovsky

          I mean that’s the reason why there is no RC yet for OG. Nighties are not stable.

      I think you answered your question. :)

    • Nwilkins15

      Cvpcs said he’s working on building rc2 today. He was moving which was the reason for no rc1 release.

    Do they have an RC for OG Droid yet?. Couldn’t find one.

    • Temp123

      I couldn’t find one either. No RC 1 or 2

    • Nwilkins15

      Rc2 should be coming really soon. cvpcs is working on it, he was moving.

  • Malonzo85

    Does this work on Droid X?

    • Mth2134

      No. No CM will ever work on the dx unless the boot gets…well the boot.

    • Mth2134

  • Dhardison

    When I run RC2, my Home button stops working. Haptic feedback is there, but no action.

    • jmanGJHS97

      I have seen this same issue. From what I gather, there’s a nightly that fixes this issue, but I think I’ll wait until RC3 to re-flash. That’s sort of a deal-breaker for me if my home button won’t work.
