    I think people are not keeping up with the builds and are basing their idea of the rom off older builds. That is why i bookmark the wiki.

    Thats why I never directly link to the downloads. I link em to the wiki home page n make em read to find the links.

    Everyone needs to take into consideration that happy campers usually dont make a peep. And with the number of downloads CM6/7 get per build, the number of ppl complaining of stuff not working, mysterious bugs, only happening to them issues, oh this rom sucks, I know wtf I am doing its gotta be the roms fault, amount to about 1 - 10%of the number of downloads.

    When I had it installed, the bugs I found were as follows.
    - the camera caused lag after use (was a known issue)
    - google navi was very slow and same lag issue after use.
    - performing the "erase SD card" function would sometimes erase everything and give me the blank SD card warning forcing me to format it again using my computer.
    - alarm clock would force close and not work at all sometimes.

    After all this and different attempts to uninstall and reinstall, fix permissions, etc, I moved back to Icarus.
    I did not have the latest version, but it was the latest at the time.
    This is the version I tried --> CM7-Ascend-04162011-signed

    Should I give the newest version a go? I was thinking I would wait another month...

    0416? you was way behind, the latest is 05142011, give it a go, and about formatting the sdcard, its recommended to use cwm recovery to format sdcard, also everything works in cm7 also, its even overclock to 710,729,748 depending on if your phone can support it.

    Dont forget to EXTRACT(unzip) the cwm.zip files! I left them zipped the first time I tried it and thought it worked only to see the stock recovery after it all and had to start all over.

    you can download rom manager and it will install cwm for you and also you can download the roms straight to your phone.

    Ok flash went smooth as usual and been playing and tweaking. It is alot better now!! I am super impressed. What is the MetrOFF for? I have not flashed it yet...

    Update: I read about it and I just created the apn as listed on this guide. Is there a difference?

    I'm not clear on which to choose (w/adw or w/zeam ) ...I'm on Metro and thinking of flashing to CM6, since there seems to be issues w/ CM7 I flashed to

    It really does not matter, if you flash either one, if you don't like it get the other one off the market. All of the launchers are on the market, pip was trying to give people options so they would not have to have a stock launcher that they did not use. It is totally personal preference.

    Can't help there. I don't have a mac, so no clue. Also, i have not noticed anything wrong with the CM7 camera. Everything works on the last build of CM6, only thing i can't verify is the mac situation.

    if you flash the metro off v1.3 you dont have to do anything with the apn, unless your not able to send/receive.

    HELPPPP Plz...I rooted my phone, and installed rom manager and the cyanogen mod6 rom. Booted into recovery mode,
    did the backup. I did the compelete wipe on data factory cache partition and wipe dalvik
    . format boot system and data was done. I never put the cm6 rom on my sd card
    so I decided to disconnect the phone to put it on. I put it on and tried to boot back to the menu
    but all my phone does is hang at that white logo screen...HELPPPP

    flash to stock and try again using this guide. cut rommanager out unless you want to pay for access to the roms.

    neither Here nor There
    From what I've read, you can use the free version to get the ROMs from Monday through Friday, you need the paid version to get them on the weekends. I could be wrong, though.
