    Thanks to Bobzhome:

    For those that have a really lazy Ascend, that can't get the 710MHz or my latest 729MHz installed...here is an very low Over Clocked edition: CM7.1RC1-Ascend-BobZ672-070811.zip This version only goes up to 672 MHz, so those that have had problems in the past installing CM7, should be able to with this version.

    Enjoy!

    I suggest also in recovery mode before a flash to going into "mounts and storage" and do "format /boot" and also "format /system". Those two don't get touched when you do a "wipe data/factory reset".

    It would be nice if people would at least try to use proper punctuation. It makes it a lot easier to understand your run-on sentences. ;-)

    If people are going to take my comments so seriously, perhaps they should have the sex change.

    This isn't grade school. It's not that hard to properly punctuate. And if you're here asking for help, the least you could do is make it so those that might be able to help can understand you.

    I'm not perfect, but I at least make the effort.

    Okay im new to the forums and have been reading around and you guys seem like good people so heres my problem.

    I plug my phone into my computer and put the rom i want to flash onto the root of my sd card and all that. Then when i go to clockwork mod recovery and click install from zip the rom or whatever you call it that i put into my sd root does not show up but i know it is there because when i plug my phone back into the computer it shows it on there.

    Please help out, thanks guys.

    You can not activate at metro after you flash cm7 because we do not do over the air programming any more. we hit ##626* then manually type it in. Activate it stock then flash the rom. I have not figured out how to manually access the program page. If anyone knows how please be kind to help me as I've searched and havent found anything.

    To be clear they can activate the MEID but cant program the phone with MDN or MIN

    you didnt unzip it did you? if so there is your problem right there. The .zip files have to stay zip and move to the sd card.

    So I don get the difference between the cm7, cm7.1 rc1,and cm7.2

    can anyone help?

    Most of it is performance improvements,background service improvements that aren't gonna be so noticeable,w/a few exceptions :

    1) DARK TREMORS A2SD

    2) SCREENSHOT built in,long press the call end button to access this.

    Check out the CM7 WIKI & read the entire page.It gives a detailed account of the Genesis of CM7 for the ASCEND & all of the subsequent updates & improvements that are now a part of the most current build.
  25. PlayfulGod

    PlayfulGod Well-Known Member Developer

    Correct, screenshot is a native feature in CM7 and I added dta2sd to my build :)

    most everything else is stuff you want see or maybe even notice but all needed improvements.

    I'll add a link on the wiki to CyanogenMod's changelog so those who want to read up on CM changes can.
