CM7 Nightlies Go Live For The DROIDX

If anyone was excited for the official release, then you should be just as excited for the release of CyanogenMod7 nightlies for the DROIDX. Anyone experiencing problems with the first build, should be reassured that all those bugs will get hammered out in some of these nightly builds. And even better is the fact that @cvpcs, the developer responsible for all this, has been amazingly kind and wrote out exactly what to expect from these builds. You can always grab nightlies on your DX from the CyanogenMod official site, or if you have Rom Manager Premium installed on your device – check there first.

In order to see the nightlies in RM you’ll need to do the following:

1.  Open RM Premium and hit the “Flash ClockworkMod” button.
2.  When prompted, choose the “Droid X (2nd-init) recovery.”
3.  Once that flashes, you’ll be able to view nightlies under “DownloadROM.”

So how excited are we all for this? Time to start squashing bugs.

    wtf? the droidx is like a year old and they just now have cm7 officially?

    I and also my buddies ended up studying the best ideas from the website and so before long I got a terrible suspicion I never thanked the web site owner for those strategies. All of the guys became for that reason warmed to study them and have in effect certainly been loving them. Thanks for indeed being really accommodating as well as for picking out such fabulous themes most people are really desirous to know about. My sincere regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.

    Welcome to my site contain does maoi singulair.

    Is camera and video working yet?

    • Anonymous

      In some cases, I hear it’s working. I’m running #5 and it’s still a no go for me. But there is a fix for the camera/netflix/youtube here http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/droid-x-cm7/8108-camera-fix-cm7-found.html 

      works for me. 

  • Kenny Powers

    can I install nightly 5 over the original CM7, I haven’t installed any nightlies yet and should we wipe cache or wipe anything for that matter? sorry if its already posted, cant find anything though

    • John

      via linked article where he answers your questions:

      “How frequently you update is entirely up to you. Generally not a lot changes from one nightly to another, so you definitely don’t have to update every night if you don’t want to. Be sure to follow the news on various forums or just follow me on twitter to hear about if a new nightly has bug fixes. If you’re interested in seeing the bleeding-edge features that are pushed out daily, then you may want to keep yourself up-to-date quite regularly.
      You shouldn’t have to wipe data/cache when you update from one nightly to the next. Generally not a lot is changed from one nightly to another, and thus you don’t have to worry about the wipe. If your system begins to appear unstable you may want to consider wiping to try and see if that helps, but be sure to do a nandroid first.”

      • Kenny Powers

        thanks, i was pretty confident you don’t have to install each one, but never hurts to double check

  • Alphabets13

    is cm7 w/ night 5 really good enough to be a daily right now? thinking about just doing a nandroid and utilizing the all-in-one tbh file if i dont like cm7 right now.

    what are the major improvements over the rooted GB build?

    the latest nightly has fixed the wifi issue.  Win.

    • Romma1

      Amazing Cyanogen got through. When CVPS left his own rom building to join the team last year, who knew he would contribute this much so soon?

      Anyone that doesn’t jump to Cyanogen from factory software is crazy imo. Granted, people will need to be patient. It took a while on the Dinc to bet the early builds smooth.  

  • Carlin Brown

    I have flashed nightly 5 this morning…. cyanogenmod has changed my life!

    Has anyone noticed CM7 running your phone kind of hot when browsing the internet?

    • Anonymous

      If you’re on 3g, then that’s expected. It’s done that since I got it.

      • http://twitter.com/BiGGiE_Q Biggie Quan

        Okay, glad I’m not the only one.

          Yea, that’s also one of the reasons 3g burns your battery out faster than wifi

    Pro-tip:  Camera CAN work:

    https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_device_motorola_shadow/issues/1

    Just push the two files mentioned to the /system/lib folder from your handy backup of the .596 system, reboot, and voila … working camera (not camcorder, sadly).

    • SomeBro

      Where can I find those .SO files??

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=23115693 Brent Kensey

    I’ve been using the rom for about a day now, and I must say that camera and video aside, it blows everything else out of the water.  I loved liberty, but the number of ways that cm improves on stock and/or blur are countless.  The only bug I noticed was an FC when I tried to edit the cm default brightness levels.  That is to say, apart from camera and video, none of the bugs are prominent and they won’t affect daily usage.  Totally worth using as a daily driver.

      How about GPS? Working ok?

    Yeah, becuase I want to spend every night patching fixes. Not thanks, I will wait till the final is done.

    • cm4dx4life

      It takes 5 minutes to flash the nightlies, its not a big deal.  But to each his own. 

      You will not be disappointed when a stable release is out, I can promise you that.

  • http://twitter.com/gardobus Juan

    I’ve been running the first release of CM7 on my DX for days and I’ve had less reboots/FCs than any other rom I’ve ever had on the phone.  It is super stable.  My gps works since I flashed the fix (nightly 4+ has it fixed also) so all I need now is video playback and camera.  Mostly camera.  Either way, CM w/o camera is sill amazing.

      I’m on Liberty GB 0.7. You think it’s worth the sbf and the flash?

      • DroidzFX

        There is a monster zip that you can flash without SBF

        • Anonymous

          Yeah, I’m aware, but cvpcs mentioned that he won’t be keeping that one up himself. I’d rather go with his way. I’ve SBFed before, I don’t mind doing it.

          • DroidzFX

            The monster is the same as the regular zip accept you dont have to SBF. There is nothing to keep up. But hey if you want to practice SBFin go for it.

            You can flash the monster then update to nightly #4. I did this yesterday no issues.

          • Anonymous

            Haha, there’s nothing to practice, just use that linux live cd built for it. cvpcs explicitly mentions in the post: NOTE: I will not personally be maintaining this version of installation as it is not how CM builds are built by the build system. However, P3Droid has an alternate thread over at MDW HERE which may offer some information and assistance. If you wish for official support I ask that you attempt installing using the original method to ensure that the problem persists.
            Just to keep consistency, I’d like to do it the way he intended.

      Use Mobo Player for video playback,
      Use Fast Burst camera for photos. 

      Hope this helps…

    • cm4dx4life

      I got burned by not having the camera a couple of times, missed a few good pics.   Oh well!   It’s way worth it to have CM installed. Camera will be here eventually.

        I did as well, theres a really simple solution now to fix the cam though :)

    took CM7 for DX a week to gain nightly status.. yet the thunderbolt CM7 is still in alpha after over 2 months. Damn you, LTE radio.

    cvpcs, now that the DX has achieved nightly status, can you please start to help out on the tbolt also? We need you!

      Slayher is still trying to work out some problems with CM7 on the Thunderbolt. I think it is mainly related to kernel issues. You can follow him and the status of the Thunderbolt CM7 on his Twitter. https://twitter.com/#!/LayherDaddy

      I am jealous that CVPCS is working on the Droid X instead of the Thunderbolt. I know Slayher has a pretty good release out now but I’d love for him to get some help.
