CyanogenMod 7.1.0 RC 1 Released For Most Supported Devices

Over the weekend the boys at Team Douche dropped CM7.1 on us with their first release candidate. Most of the CyanMod supported devices have builds available on their website, and after flashing to all my devices, it’s definitely smooth and fast. Unfortunately, 7.1 is not available for the DROIDX, but I’m sure we’ll be seeing that soon.

Something which we noticed running CM7.1 is that Hulu+ still doesn’t seem to work. We’re hoping they squash that bug in the very near future. 7.1.0 is based on Android 2.3.4 and has a pretty sweet list which should definitely meet all your Android needs. To check it out, just open up ROM Manager on your phone and check the CyanogenMod section.

If it isn’t in ROM Manager, head over here to find all the downloads. To see the ChangeLog, head here.

Cheers everyone who sent this in!

    I wanted to draft you this very small word just to say thanks over again over the spectacular methods you have documented in this article. This is quite unbelievably generous with you to provide openly what many of us would’ve advertised for an electronic book to end up making some dough on their own, precisely now that you might have done it in the event you wanted. Those things as well worked to become a good way to be aware that many people have a similar desire much like my very own to understand whole lot more regarding this condition. I am sure there are lots of more enjoyable moments in the future for those who scan through your website.

And indeed, I’m also certainly happy with your stunning ideas you serve. Some 2 facts on this page are easily the best I’ve had.

    Anyone else have trouble trying to install on the OG?  

    I swear something awesome needs to come out and quick (that sweet looking SG2,or an Unlocked Bionic) so I can retire the OG.  He’s just not performing up to par lately.

    • Cmorty72

      Yep.
      Just tried installing 7.1.0-RC1 twice at work tonight, and both times got stuck in a continuous boot loop.

      Anyone else experience this on their OGD?

      • Ted Falkowsky

        I got stuck at the M logo the first time I tried to install.  Recovered back to 7.0 and was planning to try again today.  It looks like others are having issues, so I may wait a day or two.

      • Ted F

        Got stuck at the M logo after my attempt.  I did not wipe device, but did wipe cache.  Had to restore back to 7.0 and haven’t tried again yet.  Might give it another shot today, or maybe wait to see if others are having issues.

  • Amenemhat1

    Finally fixed the black screen after picking up a call issue on my OG Droid. Looks good, but reverting back to 7.0.3 for now. Wish there was a way to upgrade without having to manually download and reconfigure every app and phone setting. Unless I’ve yet to be enlightened?

    Keep this up, and I can chug along with my Droid until the Bionic 2000, quad-core comes out!

    I tried CM7 on my DX and it was just too buggy. I admit that I probably screwed up something when installing the Google Applications, but I went back to Liberty GB. I did like a lot of the features it had, so I plan on going back once they’ve had a few more releases for the DX.

  • EC8CH

    This one I actually saw first on my OGD before the Droid-Life post :-)

    Push notification on ROM Manager are making you look slow Tim-o :-)

  • Jhealey9

    At this point, whenever there is a post on DL and it has nothing to do with the Droid Bionic or the SGS2, I am almost disappointed… my OG droid is on its last leg and I am growing impatient as I wait for a phone that’s worth my upgrade.

    • rgrluke

      I have to disagree, I just made the jump to root my OG Droid and it’s like I got a new phone  :-)  …with the economy the way it is I can’t afford to upgrade for a while anyway, so I am thankful for these posts and for some love for the one that got it all started, the OG Droid.  

  • Curmudgeon

    Bluetooth Voice Dialing is still borked on the OG Droid in this RC.   And return of 3G data after a phone call is still dicey.   And you’ll still have to deal with over aggressive memory management causing random redraws and FC’s.  And even though it may seem snappy when you first install it,  a week later you may find it becoming intolerably sluggish.   Bottom line is that the OG Droid is still much happier running Froyo.

      “And even though it may seem snappy when you first install it,  a week later you may find it becoming intolerably sluggish”

      I have had this same problem since I started rooting my OG. It may not be a week but after a while my OG will always start to be more sluggish. I have even just ran it stock and still had the same effect. I really have no idea what happens to do this but with the rate the ROMs were always coming out for the OG I just continually jumped from one ROM to the next every so often to keep it fast.

  • Patrick H

    If it’s not available for the Droid X, how come when I go to settings->about phone, my “Mod version” says CyanogenMod-7.1.0? I’m on the first Beta that cvpcs released on RootzWiki.

    • tanknspank

      When building from CM source, the package name is generated automatically. At some point, the source version was updated to 7.1.0, in preparation for releases like this. Cvpcs’s builds are built from this source, so the mod version was generated as being 7.1.0. Doesn’t mean you are running an official release of 7.1.0 like a RC or Final or anything like that.

      • Patrick H

        So what you’re saying is, the build I’m on is something in between 7.0 and 7.1? Thanks for the info.

        • tanknspank

          Yep. The last official release across most devices was 7.0.3. At that point, the DX was not supported. Between that release and todays 7.1.0-RC1 release, the DX was added. Whenever it was compiled, it had source that was newer than the last official release, but older than today’s. If you were to flash a nightly from tomorrow, it will be newer than what was released today for most devices. The only difference here is that the RC was compiled by the devices maintainer, because it was considered stable enough for an official release, and not by the bot.

          • Patrick H

            Okay. Thanks a lot for clearing that up! You are very knowledgeable, sir/ma’am. 

  • Kane161994

    I JUST rooted my OG Droid to cyanogenmod 7.0.3. What are some cool apps now that I rooted?

          Just don’t stare too hard at anything…

          rooting gives you laser vision.

          • Kane161994

            And when the release candidate becomes official, how do I get that version with ROM Manager?

          • tanknspank

            Though you can grab it right from above from the same website when it does, through ROM Manager it should be under the Free Cyanogenmod section.

            Trust me, there is life beyond ROM Manager. And it’s wonderful. 

          • Kane161994

            Is there anything to download from the market to play like SNES games or something?

          • EC8CH

            if you’re already running CM just click “Check for Rom Updates” in Rom Manager.

    Nice to see the OG Droid still getting some love. Hopefully it gets a few more updates before people decide it’s not worth developing for anymore.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dustin-Carney/1004713533 Dustin Carney

    downloaded and flashed, but when i lock my screen and try to unlock it, it just hangs on a black screen, going back to 7.0.3 until this is fixed

  • Ufish2

    Plus we’ll be awhile before the X gets this..has a updated kernel so will be hard to fix for us….cvpcs rom works only on froyo …not gb

    • http://www.facebook.com/broken42 Josh Tamlin

      That doesn’t matter, it is still Android 2.3.4 just running on top of that kernel.

    • tanknspank

      The kernel is irrelevant. What your nightlies have been built from is almost as up to date as these, and the next nightly will be even more up to date. The RC releases are for devices that are stable enough or are nearing a stable release, and are personally compiled and released by the maintainer of the device, iirc of course. I’ve been wrong before.

  • Porcelain Mask

    Still no love for the DPro :(

  • Ufish2

    wifi issues on my nook color..had to flash back to 7.0.3 staple…guess i’ll have to wait till the bugs are worked out…:(

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dustin-Carney/1004713533 Dustin Carney

    downloading this right now for my inspire 4g =D

  • WormDoes

    Sigh, not having Slayher around is really going to hurt us TB owners :( At least 0.6 is smooth as snot

    • tanknspank

      Hopefully cvpcs can finish up CM4DX and move on to the Thunderbolt. 

      He truly knows what he is doing, beyond most devs in the community by far, he is just dedicated to finishing his current project it seems. Hopefully Slayher doesn’t get burnt out by all that is going on in his life either, and can make his way back to the community in due time :)

  • http://twitter.com/OreWaZero Christopher Zoellner

    Is this better over nightly builds?

  • Mii

    no epic 4g:(

    When are they going to get the camcorder and camera options worked out on the Droid X?

    • John

      No one knows. The dev of cm4dx doesn’t dedicate his life to us. When he has time, he works on the ROM occasionally. There’s a fix for the camera anyway.

      • Anonymous

        Really? Can you provide details?

        • John

          Sure. Reboot into cm recovery

          mount /system (not sure if this is even necessary)

          install from zip: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1952886/Camera%26MMSFix.zip (this is the camera + mms fix)

          unmount. reboot. voila :)

    Don’t forget the new 20110613 GApps: http://goo-inside.me/gapps/gapps-gb-20110613-signed.zip

    They’re also available in ROM Manager (Under the Google Apps listing, or by checking the Google Apps add-on when you select CyanogenMod 7.1.0-RC1). They do not include Google Talk with video chat. See the footer of http://goo-inside.me/gapps for more info on why.

    Technically, Droid X nightlies ARE 7.1, except newer. And untested.

      Did they get the camera issue fixed yet?

      • Anonymous

        As of last nights build that is a negative.

      • John

        there’s a fix for it already though (just not in the nightly)
