    Hello, i'm a newbie at these things but i've heard a few good reviews about this ROM, so i tried it out. Thankfully, i managed to root it successfully without any problem :D it is really fast, but the only problem is that i can't get my bluetooth, WiFi and torch to work and the Play Store wouldn't open either, it keeps asking me to 'Force Close'! What should i do?? :( Since i don't know what to do, I have thought of going back to Gingerbread but i'm scared i might do something wrong and end up bricking my phone, plus i forgot to take note of my phone's firmware version and baseband!! :( i have bought this phone at the same time with my sister, so does it have the same firmware version and baseband?

    And i've seen many cool looking themes for CM7 in some sites but i haven't figured out how to install them yet. Would you kindly give me a step by step instruction? Thanks in advance!!

    i have also read that ROM Manager is usually the main cause why their phones were bricked, this is why i got so worried when i saw it on my phone. is it going to cause a problem anytime soon? should i delete it?

    DELETE ROM MANAGER
    Re Flash the rom with a complete wipe first, this should remove your force closes.

    Most probably your firmware would the same as your sister's phone, but it doesn't matter, you can just flash the latest firmware via Odin.
    Also don't forget your system is .ext now, you will need to flash via Odin if you want to return to a stock rom, don't just flash any stock rom via CWM.

    As far as themes are concerned, you will need to get CM themes from the net, there are lots available and you can just install them like apps and then apply them using the Theme Chooser app already available in your rom.

    thank you for your answer! i'll be deleting ROM Manager with my titanium backup in a bit :)

    this may sound dumb but how do i "re flash the rom with a complete wipe"?

    i found a few that i like.. i get it now :D after a lot of thinking, i've decided to stay with this ROM. thank you!!

    Goto cwm and wipe system, partition and dalvik cache....then go to mounts and wipe data, system and cache, then install zip.

    But if you really want a fresh installation then first flash a new firmware via Odin and then flash this rom via CWM. This one is the best way but who has the time to flash via Odin everytime :p

    I tried today on a friend's computer but ODIN did not detect my phone. Do I have to install anything in order to make it work ?

    There seems to be two different CM7 download links now, one in the first post and one in the xda link in the second post. Whats the difference between them?

    The link on the 1st post is for the cyanogen's download section and the link in the 2nd post will take you to slaid480's post on xda about the new nightlies. Its basically the same thing but the xda link has mirrored rom so it'll be easier to download from there.

    Here's the link for the latest official nightly update by the original maintainer.. CyanogenMod Downloads

    I've been using this update over a day now & I only found two things wrong with this rom so far..

    When I try to charge when phone is switched off the phone automatically switch itself back on.

    The FM radio doesn't work.

    Other then them two small bugs all else works good!! :):)

    Try a reflash. Let me know if it helps. Just a thought could you send music with stock?

    Reflash means reinstalling the ROM. Stock is the official firmware (if your asking this you might want to read up on custom ROM's as you can brick your.phone if your not careful.

    Don't zoom on camera, set to highest resolution and crop the image.

    I was tempted to try CM7.2 but here is the problem.

    You specifically advised not to backup and resotre system data other than wifi?

    The problem is its a no go for me if I cannot backup and restore my sms/contacts, I ideally also want to restore my system settings as well as it took quite a while to configure my phone how I like it although not as essential as the sms and contacts, thoughts on this?

    I got it from the torrent links.

    I cant find documentation anywhere on how to import sms/contacts (not using google contacts is messy).

    I tried restoring from titanium backups but they dont appear, this is a showstopper so sadly if I cant get all my stored messages imported I will have to go back to stock and see if I can pay the CM dev's to add a import tool of some sort.
