Newest Of The DROIDX CyanogenMod Nightlies Gets Bumped to Android 2.3.5

If you’ve been running CyanogenMod on your DROIDX, you’ll be happy to hear that the newest of the nightlies uploaded this afternoon, is running Android 2.3.5, and is most definitely stable. Seems like just yesterday this beast was finally semi-cracked and the developer community jumped on it. In the words of Ian Malcolm: Life is like Android, it will find a way.

Has everyone been trying out the nightlies on their devices? We’re sure that 2.3.5 will be leaking onto all the phones soon. To check your device’s nightly status, check Rom Manager (you must have the premium version to get nightlies) or at the Team Douche Mirror Network. Happy flashing.

Cheers Zach!

    if i am running gingerbread do i have to flash back to 2.2 to get this cuz it seems not to flash on gingerbread

  • AdamTomaino

    Is there a changelog for 2.3.5 anywhere?

  • Thank you so much for providing individuals with an exceptionally breathtaking opportunity to check tips from this blog. It is often so great and stuffed with a great time for me personally and my office acquaintances to search your web site at least thrice per week to study the fresh guidance you have got. And definitely, I’m just at all times satisfied with your impressive points you give. Selected 3 ideas on this page are definitely the most impressive we’ve ever had.

    My quadrant score is unbelievable.   I’m overclocked to 1.3v on low voltage and my 2nd quadrant run was 2798.  Is there some type of “cheat” built into CM or can we trust quadrant? 

  • I wanted to post you a tiny word to thank you yet again just for the pleasant ideas you have shared on this website. It has been simply incredibly generous of people like you to present unreservedly what most of us could have offered as an ebook to generate some money on their own, chiefly now that you might well have done it if you decided. Those advice as well worked to be a great way to be sure that some people have a similar zeal like my personal own to understand great deal more related to this issue. I’m certain there are lots of more fun instances ahead for people who look over your blog post.

  • This is the first time I’ve installed a nightly, or even looked at updates since this was released (I’ve had it on my phone since release). The camera appears to be broken still on this version. Any idea when they plan to fix that? Would check their forums but they are down for maintenance. Thanks.

      There’s a camera fix you have to flash separately http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/droid-x-cm7/8108-camera-fix-cm7-found.html

  • Droid_Junky

    Rom Manager premium will not let me download the nightlies. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled but no go. Anyone have a suggestion on how to fix it?

    • I think I might have had the same problem. Do they just not show up for you? In ROM Manager (I believe it has to be the Premium version), select Flash ClockworkMod Recovery and choose Droid X (2nd-init). You might have to reboot, but they should show up afterwards.

      • Droid_Junky

        That was it! I was using the Droid X recovery. Not 2nd-init. Thanks!

  • CM4DX was great.  I just couldn’t stand the battery life anymore.  I couldn’t even make it 5-6 hours.  I’m sure it’ll get fixed up soon.  I’ll probably go back when it gets an actual release candidate.

    • anytime i flash a rom for any phone it always seemed like my battery life was horrible so I stopped rooting and get great battery

    APEX is still the best for speed, reliability, and battery life. and you add any blur features as you wish, like the awesome blur camera

      Is Apex based on CM 7 or is it crappy 596?  I was getting music reboots even on roms based on 596.

    I’m running liquid right now. Do i have to sbf back to froyo in order to install this or can i just install right over liquid??

  • in cvpcs’ newest blog post, he explained why development has been slow lately. Go read it. Based on it, I suspect he’ll have all the bugs worked out within a a week, two weeks tops.

  • Dollyllama

    For those asking, cm7 is very stable on droid x…i’ve had it on mine since mid June and have updated consistently. I flash a camera/camcorder fix and it works like a charm. I’ve only once had an issue with “searching for gps” but that was several nightlies ago.

    in related news, “nightlies” is a unit of measurement. Recently my wife and I went on vacation for 6 nightlies. The NFL lockout lasted about six months but only 42 nightlies. I can’t believe that August is going to be here in only 4 more nightlies! where does the time go?! Crap I’ve got a report due tomorrow and i have less than a nightly to finish it!

    ?I’m a teacher and I’m going to rewrite my classroom policy on missed assignments due to absence. All assignments are due promptly the nightly you return to school!

    • eh

      your wasting precious nightlies, get to work!

  • Why is there no love on here for the Droid2? I have CM7 2.3.5 on my D2 and according to the Devs the D2 version of CM is moving faster towards official release then the DX version….

  • Lmrojas

    Does this end the random reboots?

    • eh

      Im not getting any random reboots

    • Yes. I do. I started with Nightly 40, It’s not as often if i leave the screen on all the time though.

  • PyroHoltz

    Nice Jurassic Park reference Kellex.  I’m thinking some of the folks on this site may be a little too young for that movie.

  • Gotta love Cm7 developers- Respect! I aint going back to any other rom neither am i changing my phone!(droid2) cause of the bootloader. Quick question though, does 2.3.5 mean that the phone actually runs that specific update? I find it hard to believe that my droid 2 is running the latest update thanks to the devs.

    • Baked14

      I find it easy to believe. These guys gots brains.

    • more phones run the latest updates SPECIFICALLY because of the Devs, certainly NOT because of the OEMs and Carriers!

    • Lol you are really on 2.3.5, they arn’t just changing the number to trick you

  • I love my DX now that it has CM7 on it but its been getting less than steller battery life. I am on nightly 38. Guess i’ll try updating to the latest nightly and see if that helps.

      Have you tried battery calibration from the market??

      In the build.config file there is a standard value for what our battery can handle… but the problem is not all batteries are made equal.

      EVERY time I flash a new system I charge my phone up fully, then once fully charged I run this app and it deletes that stock build.config file, with correct values for YOUR battery.

      To ensure the most life out of the battery kill it all the way first time around.

      I have NO issues with battery life!!!!!

  • I needed to post you this very small remark in order to say thank you yet again for all the nice ideas you have provided on this page. It is simply particularly generous with people like you to give freely all that most of us could have sold for an e-book to end up making some dough for their own end, chiefly considering that you could have tried it if you ever wanted. The tricks as well served to provide a easy way to know that other people have similar zeal much like mine to understand somewhat more when considering this matter. I know there are millions of more enjoyable situations up front for many who read carefully your website.

    Let me just jump into ROM Manager and flash this sucker!

  • guest

    i have changed it in the settings but it still unlocks when pressing the menu button.

  • fartbubbler

    got mine!

  • Patrick H

    Thanks cvpcs!

    why does pushing the menu button unlock the phone?

    I have a droid x that’s running Apex, android 2.2. 
    Ive heard that I’ll lose my wireless tether once I upgrade to Gingerbread. Is there a work around for this? 
    Does the c7 allow for wireless tether even though its on 2.3? 

    • Sketch2000

      Yes Wireless Tether works on CM7, SSX, and MIUI just fine. Stock GB you need WugPacked GB Tether Patch 

    • I have the rooted stock gingerbread. There is a patch to make the tether work.

  • How many features are still not working with CM? I have read in a lot of places that things like GPS, camera and others are still a no go.


      when I had it cm7 there was no youtube/video and I had to use a camera fix. they may have fixed that stuff recently though.

    • PowersUSA

      Same questions here. I just have not had the time to pour through the long forum threads and the like to find out the current state of CM for the DX. 

    • Everything works on the D2 CM7

    • Anonymous

      The nightlies for the DX still have to be patched to get the camera, camcorder, torch and video working. The FM radio and HDMI out are not working.

    • GPS, camera and torch do work. The ROM is silky smooth and quick. I have had a couple small issues though and battery life isn’t great. I’m a big fan of CM, but this won’t be my daily driver much longer. However, if you are bored or feel like experimenting, CM will keep you occupied for days! Lots of features to play with.

    • Tdbone1

      gps and camera/camcorder work fine.
      camera only 480P res is selectable (i believe)
      everything worked great but for me i wanted hdmi out to work
      mini hdmi out to standard hdmi tv.
      for pictures and movies…..
      im running the alltel rom rooted on my droid-x (basically froyo android 2.2.1) but without all of verizons apps installed
      i get great battery life.
      im using skype over wifi and the phone is not activated with verizon.
      if i leave my wifi to never shut off and also set battery to performance so wifi never disconnects
      i get about 24 or more before i have to charge
      i am in airplane mode with only wifi on
      default backlight

    Droid X MIUI ftw!

    • Came in here to ask if I should leave my new beautiful, sexy, perfect, stunning and absolutely amazing MIUI for this.. and what the difference is.. 😀 Is CM7 fully stable now for the DX, or are there tons of fixes and patches here and there? 

      • eh

        Its not officially in stable status yet. But I havent had anything lockup or had a reboot in weeks.  You still have to run one patch but it takes a minute.

        • Anonymous

          what patch is that?

          • Sketch2000

            camera, I think

          • eh

            yes, the camera.

            THanks guys!!!

          • Bell

            Oh and gps, which is fixable

      • Jturnley

        + 1. Ran CM7 for weeks, got tired of having to patch multiple items every time I flashed and seeing no indication of fixes coming. MIUI has everything working out of the box, except for BT control from my car, which I can live with.


      loving MIUI with launcher pro over the top!

      • Anonymous

        Running MIUI with ADW EX. Runs like a champ! I looooove all the features/customization MIUI offers. CM7 had a lot, but no where near as much as MIUI does.

      I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panas0nic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://to.ly/aQrp

    • Failgrim

      I’m loving MIUI with the exception of my bluetooth headset not having sound with calls…That’s a dealbreaker for me 🙁

      • Anonymous

        I agree it’s a fail. I can’t sync my bluetooth in my car either. But still not a dealbreaker for me.

    • Randerson384

      Tried cm7, couldn’t deal with the poor battery life. Now running miui and loving it.

  • Ezra Byrd

    Droid 2 nightlies also have 2.3.5. Super smooth and stable.

    • Adam Elghor

      yess…..btw in rom manager should i flash clockworkmod recovery for D2 or dx (2nd-init) for my droid 2 if i want to flash this

  • Christopher Heuer

    Nightly for the Droid 2 from last night is also on 2.3.5, and seems very stable.
