    I have the spec sheet for the TI TPS65023 voltage regulator, but my knowledge is insufficient to decifer what the lowest valid voltages are. Maybe someone here can read it and help. It would be nice to know if the voltage is actually setting that low or, in fact defaulting to some higher value.

    If you're looking for some leisure reading material, I definitely recommend this spec sheet :)

    In one of the spec tables, there are the 3 voltage out lines, and it looks like minimum is 600 mV. So that would be my not-so-well-educated guess.

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. Output voltage range for VDCDC1 step-down converter
    3. (1)
    4. 0.6
    5. VO Output voltage range for VDCDC2 step-down converter
    6. (1)
    7. 0.6
    8. Output voltage range for VDCDC3 step-down converter
    9. (1)
    10. 0.6
    11.

    Fwiw, (not much) That was my best guess also.

    There are a couple guides for that stuff around here too. If you don't want to do it yourself I am sure someone will get around to it before too long.

    Memory tweaks I am making in the 99memory file seem to not be sticking.

    Memory still drops to 24MB. Do we still edit this the same way as we did in TG's original rom or is there another file I can try editing the values in?

    Sorry for the many questions.

    You have to mount it rw first, also remove the '#' in the beginning of line, also reboot. or use an app to do it like 'autokiller memory optimizer'.

    Thank you! Removing the "#" did the trick :)
    Forgive my ignorance. I'm loving this! It's very smooth.

    Wishing everyone a nice holiday weekend!!

    Merry Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) and stay safe you guys!

    Just flashed this last night, and it's pretty good so far. Battery lasts longer for sure. The only problem is that the built in tether (portable hotspot) is not working. This is the first time putting CM7 on my phone, did it work in TG's original CM7? I used barnacle when i was using the stock rom, and it worked fine after I changed the mtu settings. I would like to use the built-in tether instead of barnacle or any other app. Thanks in advance

    Make sure "USB Debugging" is enabled.

    Check under Settings, Applications, Development

    USB debugging was already enabled. I just tried it again but this time i turned off the security, and its working fine now. Thanks anyways!

    Hate to be a n00b here, but I'm not too familiar with CPU governors and how each one behaves, and seeing as the number of governors have doubled in this build of CM7, I'm hoping someone will help explain them to me.
    Mainly minimax, smartass, smartassv2, Scary, InteractiveX, and SavagedZen.

    The best way is to just look at the source code comments since a lot of devs don't like to write separate docs.

    Any luck changing yours?

    I've tried changing mine too smartassv2 and after reboot the setting goes back to the original setting.

    Probably when it settles down more.

    Make sure to check the 'set on boot', changing the governor & freq could potentially make the phone not boot, so it's not set by default.

    How much does disabling boot animation speed up boot time? Anyone checked it out yet?
    I haven't tried this ROM yet cause I figured I've already made most of the changes to my setup, except for disabling hdmi.
    My current is about 35 seconds to my lock screen shows.

    Hope everyone got w what they wanted for Christmas!

    Thank you.

    The smartassV2 governor is working fine so far. :)

    How do you change the carrier name in cm7?
    I decompiled the framework-res.apk and went to to strings.xml file to change the name, but i could not find the line:

    <string name="roamingText1">Virgin Mobile</string>

    that's how i changed it in my last rom. can someone tell me how to change it please? and would i need to reflash the whole cm7 file again after i make the changes to the framework-res.apk? (im a noob as u can tell by now :) ) thanks

    The stuff for that in CM7 is in the framework-res.apk like you thought, but it is in the eri.xml file instead of the strings.xml. Just change the lines that have "Virgin Mobile" to whatever you want it to say (I think there are 2 different lines, not sure that you HAVE to edit both, but I always have).
    You won't want to flash the whole ROM again. The easiest way is to push it using ADB. If you don't know how to do that, find the CM7 flashable zip, unzip it and replace that framework-res.apk with the one you just pullled/edited from your phone. Then rezip and you should be good (not sure if you want it compressed or not, I personally use ADB). If you use something like APK Multi-Tool, you can ADB push using that as well.

    I was really excited to see that developmet was continuing on tickerguy's cm7 project, and you have done some great work.

    Unfortunately, it hasn't been working very well for me. Could very well be something I am doing wrong but I've had a number of issues. Some graphical glitches in scrabble. Most importantly, wifi takes really long to connect and reconnect now. Maybe I shouldn't be using juice defender with this build? This also seems to be causing me to have problems to connect to google so I've been missing emails. I had to restore back to the b.08.

    I could've just done something wrong though I guess, but I thought I should still share my experience.

    Can we flash this ontop of TGs 0.8 build or should we do a clean install?

    I flash it on top of tg b08 have had no issues so far!

    Make sure the download isn't corrupted, check the md5sum by opening terminal emulator, cd <dir_of_zip_file>, then md5sum <zipfile>. Also make sure to wipe cache and dalvik-cache before flashing, it will keep your old settings and apps.
