Default Android 2.3.7?

Just updated to the latest CM7 nightly and its Android version 2.3.7.

Anyone know what the difference is from the usual 2.3.5?

That's the question being asked on CyanogenMod Q&A at the moment!

CyanogenMod 7 (w/ Gingerbread 2.3.5) for Galaxy SII Q&A - Page 334 - xda-developers

Still too many drawbacks to CM7 on the SGSII to get me to change at the moment I'm afraid.

Does it work, there is no NFC chip in the SGS2. Then again, I just read the AT&T SGS2 and saw a battery with NFC written on it

2.3.7 is Ice Cream Sandwich.
Meant to say it is the last GB version before Ice Cream Sandwich arrives.

Nah TV out doesn't work. I also found an annoying bug. Every time I changed themes using cyanogen theme chooser I got taken to the google account sign in screen that you get after doing a factory reset. So back to revolution. I wish I found that out before I spent the time restoring all my apps.

I tried CM7 for a few days as I was a big fan of it on my Nexus One.

However, I found it a little stale, clunky and slow on the SGSII and to be perfectly honest, there are some Samsung features I quite like.

I may give it a go again, further down the line.

I think I read somewhere that the samsung apps don't work on CM either. Which is a a pain because I use the allshare app a lot and I havent found anything else that is as good (even though the allshare app isnt that good to start with).

Your right there aren't any Samsung apps. There's not even the option to add them later.

Bulgarian actually, as the member's profile indicates.

From Google Translate:

Works well on galaxy-i5500. The only problem I see is that lifa binds more weakly than pc, not always found a link must not in any strong signal. Dali nastroyka. Molya write if you know how to solve this problem. Blagodarya
Not perfect but it looks like wifi still has problems on the i5500. I remember having my share of them when I dabbled with CM7 nightlies a while back.

Default WIFI problem after 2.3.7 update

I updated to 2.3.7 yesterday and had no internet via wifi. I was able to co connect and obtained an IP but no internet.

I found out that I was not the only one with this problem. Many other users posted wifi problems after Android 2.3.7 update. All posts had the same carrier (Bell Canada). This might be a only Canada wide problem.
