    NOTE: If you end up having issues, always go back and try wiping. Start fresh and see if things don't improve.
    NOTE 2: It'll take awhile for everything to settle down. Especially after installing gapps and syncing accounts. Give it a few minutes to settle and reboot a couple times. The system will speed up after that.

    Helpful Tips

    Overclocking is available in Settings --> CyanogenMod settings --> Performance --> CPU settings. Tweak it as you like, but know this: not all OV's were created equally.

    What do you mean by removing fm radio? Is that an app to listen to FM radio (such as 89.7 or what ever frequency)?
  3. new optimus

    new optimus Well-Known Member

    no he means some of the optimus line of phones actually had a fm radio built in, you could tune to the local radio stations.

    Not internet radio
    derrabe and alfick3 like this.

    alfick3 Well-Known Member

    Sorry for not being as clear with the written word as I was in my mind.:D That's actually what I meant, to listen to the radio using the phone. 'Course, you'd need an app to utilize that, right? Just like you have a phone app (even though it's built in and integral to the phone it self, it's still an app, right?).
  5. Camera360 ultimate force closes. This is the same on reppards aosp port, is this an issue with cm7 in general?

    EDIT: thought I would mention reppards overclock kernel works perfectly on this rom if anyone was wondering.

    What is camera360? Is that a camera app from the market? Does this ROM have a standard android camera app installed, or do we need to install a camera app?
  7. The stock camera works. Camera360 is one of if not the best android camera apps, it takes great HDR photos and has more quality features then any other camera app I've used. I highly recommend it.

    Ah. Ok. Was just wondering. That's one of the things that I've not bothered finding an app for, the camera. I've been pretty satisfied with the stock camera app so far.

    new optimus Well-Known Member

    I would imagine it would use an app to control the radio.
    There are internet radio apps, though over 1x its difficult to listen too.
    Tune in is one I recently was told about and it works nice.
  10. Download Camera360 free from the market and go outside and take some photos in light hdr mode, you will be amazed. Tilt shift and color shift are great too. c360 free works on this rom just no ultimate.

    The lockscreen still has some lag. And the carrier is incorrect.

    Can u flash the same mms fix from the cm7 beta post to fix the mms on this?
  14. I tried that, no dice.
  15. Android?What!?

    Android?What!? Well-Known Member

    I tried reppards R.O.c.k. kernel and I was able to overclock..
  16. alfick3

    alfick3 Well-Known Member

    What do you mean the carrier is incorrect?
  17. Android?What!?

    Android?What!? Well-Known Member

    When you pull down the status bar and on the lockscreen it says something other then the carrier, I'm not sure cause I flashed my old rom back for now..
  18. It says "Roaming Indicator Off" where it should say "MetroPCS".
  19. alfick3

    alfick3 Well-Known Member

    Ah. Ok. I suppose that's ok.
  20. Android?What!?

    Android?What!? Well-Known Member

    Thank you for the correction.
    I couldn't remember off the top of my head.
  21. Android?What!?

    Android?What!? Well-Known Member

    I like how you can shrink the carrier label now.

    So wats the difference between this nd the beta?
  23. Found something I think is new and very handy: CyanogenMod Settings>Interface>Status Bar Tweaks>Status Bar Brightness Control!
  24. At first glance, not much. It's build off a more up to date fork of cmod, some new stuff in cyanogen mod settings, Android version 2.3.5 wasn't the other 2.3.3?
  25. alfick3

    Oh, 'nother question just popped into my head: does this include a copy of Titanium Backup? This would make it easier to copy over all my apps once I've flashed the ROM.
