    ok i installed cm7 the newest nighly i think it was 36. And i get everything set up how i wanted and so i could do a backup to revert to if i ever need to. So i created a backup in RA recovery and flashed a kernel the kernel gave me screen tearing so i thought well time to restore that backup i made so i did just that... but every time i try to restore a backup once my phone is done i hit reboot in the recovery menu and my phone just sits a the splash screen any idea on how to make a successful cm7 backup? I had other backups that i restored to but i really wanna use cm7 so please help!

    No idea about your problem, but i think that the RCs are more stable, while the nightly releases will have bug fixes (but those fixes may cause more problems ... ie less stable)

    asop roms just do not get along with my phone... I fix one problem and then I notice another. Even though I like playing and tweaking my phone..... there is a point where enough is enough......."cm7 is pissing me off"..... I just flashed my first asop rom and granted it was GB.. but the most normal things did not work and require some ninga tech skills to fix it.......back to kings r3.. might flash miki... I have never tried it

    CM7 (and most AOSP roms for that matter) do have some proclivities towards needing manual processes to get things to work such as gapps(the market on AOSP roms) it appears as tho miui has gapps built in already, so i guess if youre lookin for AOSP but the least amount of b.s. to get it runnin, miui might be your ticket. it has the feel of a ::gasp:: i-device but that can be changed by using your own icons, theme-ing etc etc... if youre at all interested in getting an aosp rom, dont give up yet. I ran into a few issues when i switched to CM7, but have since got everything working, and finally have a decent battery life. Matter of fact, theres been several nightlies out since i installed this thing, but i dont wanna screw up a good thing lol
    dont be scurred about flashing an aosp rom, theyre pretty sweet once you get past the inital headache of gettin it up n runnin properly

    I've been quite impressed with CM7. I downloaded the most recent RC and everything works. I did have to do the GPS fix, but I'm used to that, having needed it for MIUI as well.

    Ok, for you non-software developers:

    nightly builds incorporate any work done during that day and got checked in to the main code line. Typically the developer will run a local build on his/her local machine to make sure their code doesn't cause the build to fail. But just because a dev doesn't break the build doesn't mean they didn't introduce bugs with their code. Therefore, bugs can appear and go away with any nightly build.

    A "RC" is a "release candidate." This particular build has undergone some degree of QA (quality assurance [testing]). Bugs were caught and fixed. Major functionality is working. Could be minor bugs that still need to be addressed before it is "production ready."

    "Production ready" builds are called all sorts of things. Commonly, you see it as a "stable" build. It can also be referred to as "GA (general acceptance)" or "Production" build. These typically undergo standard QA where bugs are found and fixed, and then the build has undergone "UAT (user-acceptance testing)." This is commonly a "beta" release where a subset of non-developers test the version and report any bugs they find. These bugs are then addressed. New functionality is not added. Expect little to no bugs for stable releases.
