I've posted this a couple of times with no response. So here goes again....I have a radio update I haven't flashed that will update the radio to .12 which is what we were all running prior to flashing back to Froyo to install this. Has anyone installed this update yet? And if so, has it improved signal and battery life. Has it killed anyone's device? Anyone? Bueller?

I updated my radio to the .12 release at one point.

I had quirky problems with WiFi and 3G that may well have been unrelated to the radio version, especially since that was back in the early nightlies of CM7. However, I flashed back and haven't upgraded since.

That said, the radio did work with .12 just fine, it didn't kill my phone, and you can always SBF to downgrade it again. I didn't get much signal improvement. Battery life is unknown because, like I said, it was early in the CM7 builds.

Other than battery life that's all over the charts, I love the way my phone is set up and really would rather not go through the "pain" of SBF'ing and redoing everything again so I'm trying to avoid that. Thanks for your input.

Sorry. Not everyone's here all the time. Keep asking till you get your answer!

I seem to get better signal with the .07 radio (and by extension better battery life). It definitely won't kill your device. I think the .07 radio might be more optimized to work with the Moto's Froyo kernel.

Had an interesting day. Decided to see how long my battery would last. Took it off the charger at 8am but at 6pm, I still had 85% so I gave up.

Also built CM4DX from the Team Douche source (it's surprisingly easy). I was trying to copy all of Moto's proprietary drivers from .596 but that doesn't work; the extract-file.sh process only seems to work with CM based roms.

Going to try to understand how 2nd init is implemented in CM4DX.

Thanks. I saw that already though.

Damn! I got 13 hrs yesterday - pretty heavy usage though so I really can't complain. Sent WELL over 100 texts, emails, WWF and was using the music player for 4 hours.

have you looked through these cm4dx source files? https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_device_motorola_shadow/tree/6147e10e60d1fdf7dcafd5149d092dcf1edc920e/shadow-boot

I think that's very good battery life (especially if you're on the standard battery). I might need to redefine my "heavy" usage lol.

Looking at the upcoming change log for tonight, it looks like the Torch fix is now merged into the tree. Also a lot of other fixes, such as hidden SSID searching, Bluetooth PAN, and some Wi-Fi fixes.

Don't you mean 720p?

I haven't heard of a phone OR television that does 780p, just 720p or 1080 like with the droid3.

That screenshot I took with 22hours was on the standard battery. And my heavy usage is forum posting for hours, sending loads of texts and most definitely music.

Someone posted on a different forum that the LGCamera would record in 720p. I have installed it but have not looked up what settings were needed for it to be 720p. However it is a nice camera and camcorder. Need to spend some time to figure out what the right settings are.

https://market.android.com/details?id=rubberbigpepper.lgCamera&feature=search _result

UPDATE: This does not look to record in 720p (that is what I get for coming here first and other forums later). However it is still a nice camera and camcorder.

Default Cyanogen question

Just reading through the long thread about Cyanogen and wanted to know do you still have to downgrade to Froyo to install it?

As with anything else in life, if I am incorrect, I stand corrected. I completely forgot that file existed. Thanks, Razorloves, for bringing that to the table.

Thank you, I'm getting ready to install the latest Nightly now. I think I'm going to wipe everything (data/cache/delvik) just for the heck of it.

If you do..... are you going to do a data only restore or how do you plan to get your apps back?

I tried a data only restore the other day and it didn't work out too well for me.

I REALLY wish CM7 was complete. The amount of themes out for it is freakin sweet. I just had to reflash but I stayed with my stock GB. I don't want to flash anything till it's finished. I'm too scared.....lol.

I know it isn't necessary but I haven't done it since the initial install and I've been reading reports that it has been helping speed things up a little...not that they are slow now.

How is overall stability coming along on this? I remember some forced reboots back on 11. Additionally, go launcher would erase my desktop at times. Tia.

I haven't had any reboots since my initial install, I'm using Go Launcher and have not had a problem with it either.

It's been running great for me using ADWEX.

Question: When installing a nightly, a Dalvik wipe is the only necessary thing to do or should I wipe cache as well?

You only have to wipe delvik but I only wipe it every few times.

Everything worked fine, all of the apps restored without any issues and I've got everything set back up again.

Steven, I used to get regular reboots on CM7. 2-3 times per day. I never quite pinned down their source, but I haven't gotten them since about nightly #12.

To clarify, I am not necessarily tying it to Nightly #12 itself, just that the time period where I stopped getting reboots was about that time.

Now it's at least as stable as Gingerblur, and in fact, I don't get the occasional lost data connection that I used to get in Gingerblur which caused me initiate a reboot and was, I'd argue, a stability problem.

I'm now on nightly, oh, I don't know... 30 maybe? It's been very solid.

No issues with mine, and I have never had any reboot issues or any issues with go launcher, it has worked great. I just went from 24 to 33 today and it is still running great. I just flash the fix for the camera/camcorder and torch and then the one that is out there to make the keyboard bigger.

Folks, feel free to install #33 if you're looking to give your DroidX an ass kicking.

I went this whole entire time from build#0 with ZERO reboots, and
now my DX randomly reboots.
Build #33 also ate my battery life faster than a Thunderbolt.
Just an fyi, the torch is NOT officially fixed as some may have read in the Changelog.
The Shadow has been added to the list of support for it, it seems.
I flashed back to build#25 just as a precaution, and all is well again.

I've had no reboots on 33 today and the battery has been fine so far.
