CyanogenMod 7 RC3 Released for DROID Incredible, Other Devices

Release Candidate 3 for CyanogenMod 7 has started rolling out to a variety of devices, including one of our family members, the DROID Incredible.  If you head over to the CM release site, you’ll find RC3 for the DI, plus what appears to be a new nightly.  Anyone already running this?

Cheers Steve!

    I hope this is a lot better than RC2. That piece of crap should never have been labeled a release candidate in the first place.

    I’m sort of new to the custom ROM scene, as CM7 RC2 was my first custom install. If I want to upgrade to RC3, do I need to wipe the phone to install it? what’s the easiest upgrade process?

      If you’re already running CM, you just flash RC3 over your current version. But I always do a manual wipe of the cache and dalvik cache, just for kicks.

      • PyroHoltz

        I am under the impression that if you’re not currently running a version of Gingerbread on your phone then you will NEED to wipe your phone when going to any GB ROM.

        When I went from CM6(Froyo) to CM7(Gingerbread) I was told a wipe was requirement and that things would get all honked up if I didn’t.

        • Anonymous

          This is true. But Alex was already running RC2, which is a GB rom.

          • PyroHoltz

            Yeah, good point. Somehow I missed the mention of CM7 RC2.

    waiting on the next Ultimate Droid for my thunderbolt. CyanogenMod wasn’t bad, but nothing beats Ultimate Droid. It’s ashame I don’t hear much about it on this site, I saw you post one article on it waaaay back in like ’09 and that’s what got me hooked on the rom, I haven’t turned back since.

      I agree, I have been using UD now for a few months, it has all the features of CM7 plus more. I just hope CM doesn’t end up sucking in blackdroid like they did with the dev of sapphire and ruby.

      • UltimateDroidRocks

        yup, that’s what I like about it too. Plus I like the smaller community, everyone seems to know each other pretty well and it’s more personal than CM.

        • Matt

          It does have more features b/c no matter what BD says, he just takes the code from CM and adds a few things and claims it as his own. I used UD for over a year and always liked it but recently it was just too buggy. One feature would be added, one more thing would break. I’ve been running CM7RC2 for the past month and I’m not sure if I’ll go back to UD at all.

  • Sruel3216

    • Anonymous

      release candidates are generally stable enough for daily use. Nightlys are often buggy, broken, or just not intended for use by the public.
