Can anyone gives feedback whether this version solves the battery problem?

And is it as good as Phantom's battery?

OzGur said...

an aproximate battery life? compared to phantom

OzGur said...

1 major disadvantage for CM7- wi-fi doesn't work as good as phantom rom...

monis said...

what about 8 gb sdcard ?
working properly or not?

Carlos said...

@monis if it using superaosp rc1 kernel.. have same issues ;) wait to rc2 xD

S.line said...

I have 60% battery with 34 hours use!
wow!

S.line said...

@carlos You are CML right?

Carlos said...

@S.line yes :)

Aaron said...

at the moment im using phantom evo, do i need to go back to stock to flash this?

Arnold said...

will try this one. and send a feedback

Tomonomonous said...

Can whoever writes this blog please find a different filehosting service? Try Dropbox or just plain old torrents.

IIVKINOSVII said...

@Aeron it's a NBO file,I think we do not need to roll back to stock ROM

Hok Lie said...

@monis: I am using it wth 8gb transcend and there is no problem at all, so does with wifi

@carlos: thanks for your great kernel, its make cm7 have decent battery life, and we are waiting for RC2 for sure....

Wilson John said...

@all:

how can i transfer apps to SD Card using this rom?
thanks in advanced to those would like to share their tips.. kudos..

Aaron said...

the battery life of this rom is exceptional, if you compare to other cm7 roms; its similar to the battery life of phantom evo.

however, i have come to realise that the 3d stuff is not as good as it can be, it lags a bit on games such as fruit ninja and doodle jump.

overall its a great rom

Naren said...

@Aaron - did you roll back to 2.1 rom before flashing this with SUTLR?

Btw, uploading.com is the worst file sharing service one can find/use/suggest!

Gaurav said...

I'd rather use CML's 2.3 ROM than this. It has all CM7 features, plus enhancements for Boston, which makes it a better ROM. I've used both, and found SuperAOSP better than CM: less reboots, no wifi issues, same set of features.
Waiting for your stable release Carlos!

Naren said...

Anyone facing the famous 'SD card removed unexpectedly' error with this ROM? CM7 is known for this UNFIXED issue..

cano said...

when finish flashing i hawe error message:

Ps: tried flashing from phantom evolution and original fih-foxconn226D(2.1) roms but error message is still there.. thanks if anybody can help me :) im really wanna use cm mod :)

Arnold said...

@cano

Ismail Mohd Yusof said...

cano said...

Frank said...

Hi,
ROM is smooth and responsive. I'm facing the following issues a) Call quality is not that good and breaks down during the middle of conversation and b) Importing contacts from SIM creates duplicate entries (6 per entry) even though I imported only once. I think the call issue has to due with an old version FOXCONN radio. Have no clues about the SIM import issue although. Anyway keep up the good work.

Regards,
Frank

cano said...

thank you Ismail :) i hawe lot of time . this error dont care me :) but without sd card my phone is like human without air :) if anyone hawe any idea pls tell me :) but the other functions at now works fine :) lot thank you cm mod team and boston team :)

cano said...

this B option duplicates is also present for me too :) but call quality is good for me :) Frank how many vcf contact card imported to sd card? i hawe 3vcf file and 4 contacts of one person :)

Naren said...

Got the same error reported by Cano while installing via SUTLR. Phone's working though. Why do I see a change in the font type? The old was better.. this is hard to read.

Sanver Kapur said...

I'm currently on the CM 6.1.2 ROM and was going to flash firetrap lollipop today when i saw this post..
is this ROM stable?
and i was having problems with my 8GB sd card dont want it again
is it fixed in this release?
also is this one better or the lollipop

My phone is VIDEOCON ZEUS EVOLVE
clone of commtiva z51, although z71 ROMS work on this one

Vishal Waghmare said...

How to install this one? I am using cm7 stable. Do I need to flash existing ROM or go back to stock ROM?

Tarun Kumar Singh said...

which one is better
?
this rom or soperaosp??
plz respond

Aaron said...

@Vishal
you can install it through SUT.
just follow this instruction on this site:
http://www.ubiquitense.com/technology/how-to-install-android-roms-with-nb0-file-extension/2800/

im not sure if you need to go back to stock, but thats what i did, just in case :)

Naren said...

@Vishal - just follow the instructions in the link Aaron has shared.

@Aaron - you don't need to roll back to 2.1 rom. I just installed or rather flashed without downgrading. It's working fine...so far. :)

Good luck!

Sanver Kapur said...

Naren can you answer my question?

bhargav said...

@sanver k -the best rom from CM. no sd card issues i also have zeus and i have flashed it .
its working like a charm
GO FOR IT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Muhammad said...

can i use usb tether ?

Sanver Kapur said...

@bhargav
just flashed it..
its awesome..
one thing that bugs me that whenever i use the home or back key on the device the green and red light flash up.
is there a way to switch this off

Naren said...

@Sanver - looks like you've tested it alright :) I have a 4GB card, and the CM7 that I downloded from the cyanogenmod website rejected it. But, I don't know why, this CM7 from CML is working good, so far :)

KiraCEW said...

8gb class 4 memory card work for this rom ?? ( last check before flash )

Raul said...

I think this kernel it's the 2.8.6 kernel cause is #2 and the RC1 kernel is #12. Could you update this fix to last kernel?

cano said...

Akshay said...

Guys great ROM excellent battery SD CARD IS ALREADY OPTIMIZED @ 3072.

greymonn01 said...

about the vcf importing....i am having the problem to...but found out a hint to overcame it....don't sign in to your google acc when importing...which means import vcf first than login to gmail acc...hope this will help...

Naren said...

All is well with this ROM, except - it slows down to a grinding halt when using Market and Internet browsing simultaneously. Also same result for multiple app downloads. Anyone else facing this?

Vishal said...

Thanks Aaron and Naren. I have followed the steps mentioned in the link by Aaron. It went all smooth till "rebooting" the device. Here is what I got on the screen.
**
Update process fails with below erro!
Error Code: 0x4000
Error: Task 2 of 2, Restore Phone Data fail,
Error = DEVICE_NOT_CONFIGURE (0x4000).
Init Mode = Emergency Download Mode
**
What does the error mean? I was able to start the device and the kernel version is 2.6.32.9-SuperAosp, root@CML #22
The device rebooted automatically after using it for 2-3 mins.
Can someone also help me with the procedure/link to restore the stock ROM or the previous ROM (just in case). I apologize if for asking beginner questions. I am still a newbie for the custom ROM world and this is my first attempt. Thanks in advance.

Naren said...

@Vishal - even I got the error, so did Cano (look in the comments above). But this is absolutely fine - nothing to panic about. Your device restarting has got nothing to do with the error. Mine is fine, so far.

Link to installing other good ROMs - http://www.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-3624873258863081%3A3725218821&ie=UTF-8&q=ROMs

if the above link doesn't work, just go to ubiquitense.com and search for ROMs! Hope this helps.

Vishal said...

One more problem - google apps are missing. The name does say that "Cyanogen MOD 7 nb0 with gapps + battery fix". How do I install google apps including Market app?

Naren said...

@Vishal - google apps missing? Did you check? the .nb0 package is with google apps. If you can't find the apps try reflashing it or you may try - http://www.google.com/cse?q=install+marketplace&sa=Search&cx=partner-pub-2900107662879704%3Afs7umqefhnf&ie=ISO-8859-1

I know it's not much of an help..but worth trying..

bhargav said...

hey man this rom is not that great .first day it was awesome next day it suddenly switched off and when i turned it on it got stuck in bootloader.
its not booting after several attempts
moving to other rom and also the TITLE which says battery fix doesnt prove to be true its not great battery life its kind of ok battery life

Naren said...

@Bhargav - I kinda' agree. It's not such a great ROM - coz the backbone is still CyanogenMod. All was fine yesterday. Today, I'm facing frequent restarts and 'SD card is blank' errors.

Anyone else facing such issues?

Vishal said...

@Naren - Thanks for your assistance. I fixed the google apps stuff. It was a mistake from my side as I didn't login to Google account. Once I logged in, I got option to install google apps (gmail, map etc.) and the market app too opened up. I now have a shorcut for Market.

Is there way to change font? The font is not good as the previous ROM.

The phone got rebooted for me once just after the first boot. It is working well so far. I will watch it for some time and update about issues.

disaster85 said...

To Everybody: DON'T FORGET TO DO FULL WIPE AFTER FLASHING THIS ROM

S.line said...

There's a link with Memory fix: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=C4G8OSHI

cano said...

S.line
this memory fix for sd card?

S.line said...

Is memory RAM fix to solve the problem with SLUGGISH
sorry my bad english

Vishal said...

Status update:
- Battery life is good. At 46% after 20 hours of usage (phone, video, wi-fi etc.).
- Phone rebooted 3 times in 24 hours.
- Rest all is working fine

I want to know if there is way to change the font. I might go back to CM7 stable ROM as the font is difficult to read.

Oniga said...

For USB tether use EasyTether app

S.line said...

There's a tutorial to change fonts: http://androidpt.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=71&id=125703&Itemid=30
I use this ROM with fixMemory kernel and never have reboots

Tarun Kumar Singh said...

this rom is slow at times on my motorola quench xt5
also i was having almot 70% after 1 day but then battery drop was enormous
....

Vishal said...

Same here. I too are having lags sometimes on XT5. I then run an app to restore some of the memory.

Naren said...

@S.line - are you sure that the ROM from the linked mentioned by you is stable? I'm thinking otherwise - had 7 reboots after installing the ROM pointed by you.

So, guys, please stay away from the MEMORY fixed ROM :)

S.line said...

@naren: depends on the Bostons, in some works fine and not in others. works fine on my

oracle said...

@s.line:Great job, thank you.
I'm flash your ROM yestoday, it working amazing,
only issue: very hard to wake up with trackball, sometime i need click trackball 2 times to wakeup phone.
Thanks all
Ps: bad English too! :p

oracle said...

Also your font not support unicode character,
i'm use this droidsan fonts for my vietnamese
http://www.4shared.com/file/BtimTptZ/droidsans-bold.htm
http://www.4shared.com/file/Jy_HHPyq/droidsans.htm
(it's android default font, support Thais,japanest, Korean, chinese...)

oracle said...

@Naren: S.line's memorifixed ROM worked with me :)

groovepeppy said...

yup, memory fix edition worked fine with me too

Vishal said...

@Naren - I have been using this ROM for more than 2 days now. The phone was rebooted 3 times only so far. It does becomes sluggish sometimes and sometimes while typing message as the characters are not printed immediately.
@Oracle - I have been trying to install the same fonts using typefresh however no luck. It doesnt apply those fonts. Is there any other way to get it applied?
@Oracle - Yes the trackball waking up is not smooth as CM7 stable. You have to press it few times or wake up the phone using power/lock button.

kadih.blogspot.com said...

battery report pls... I want use this rom. but battery very important for me...

ps: tools for change font u can try Font Changer. search on market...

Vishal said...

@kadih - Battery life is good for this ROM (at least in comparison with XT5 stock ROM). Even after using for 20 hours, it was showing 46% available.

@ All - Can I use the same ROM for LG Optimus one?

luthfi said...

i want ask something,

can i flash it with SUT LR?

tq

oracle said...

@Vishal: copy overwrite original fonts to system/fonts and reset you cellphone,
@all: anyway to wake up with trackball smothly as CM7 stable?

oracle said...

last week,i use CM7 stable, when i load new image.img of superaosp the trackball wake up not smothly,
i have same problem with this rom,
I thing because kernel, how to fix it ?

Ubi said...

Anyone here facing the 'Blank SD card' or 'SD card unexpectedly removed' errors?

Vishal said...

@Oracle - Thanks. Font changer did the trick. GO Launcher too has a way to change font.

@All -
- I cant sync yahoo mail with default "Account & Sync" settings. It shows the account configured successful however I dont see yahoo in the list
- Call end button doesnt end the call
- As also mentioned by Orable, trackball doesnt wake up phone on first attempt like CM7 stable.

Sascha Passi said...

Two questions:

1. Is the SD-Card working fine? In the CM7 ROM is the SD-Card Bug!

2. Can I install it with SutLR?

Naren said...

@Sascha - yes you should install this with SUTLR (hope you know how to do that..lemme know if else). I had issues with the SD card, but I did a master reset, and started installing the apps one by one (instead of a batch) - the problem vanished. Not sure if this is a coincidence ;)

Kunal said...

S.line said...

@kunal master reset or reinstall the ROM

Sriram said...

I have a Videocon zeus V7500. Flashed this rom, but the battery life still not acceptable. Switched off over night, after full charging in the afternoon. Flashed the aosp4.8 boot.img and the 8GB SD card unexpectedly removed started appearing. The newer updates are still spitting my mmc like a fly in the mouth. why?? why??


I have installed the Batter Booster app, let me see. This rom looks too appealing to let go. Hope the Gods at Cyanogen address my woe.

editorsid said...

@cano: I got the same question, I suspect clockwork recovery can't work with 8GB SD. when I use 2GB, recovery mode works

Joelxt5 said...

2: downloaded cyanogen mod 7.1EAv7 and copied on my phone
3: opened rom manager and selected "install rom from sd card"
4: then i selected this cm rom
5: then it read: "click ok to restart in clockwork recovery mode"
6: i clicked ok.
now the problem starts.....
the screen goes blank....and after 2-3 secs a screen shows up showind the android logo and at the left topmost corner its written: "enter recovery mode" in small font size ..
it should not happen this way right???? after i clicked ok in the 6th step, the installation process should have begun?!
7: ok now i enter to normal recovery mode and there i select flash zip from sd card..
8: then it shows "choose the zip u want to flash or else click back"

"sdcard: cyanogen mod 7.1EAv7 "
and when i choose this (highlight it with the trackball and then press the track ball to choose) nothing happens !!!????......but when i press back it goes back......ive tried this a number of times....even with super aosp 8.6 rom...please help me ......i really wanted 2.3 on my phone...please please
