    Having flashed Cyanogen 7, I was very happy, until I realised that I had something of an annoying problem, only exacerbated by the fact that apparently I'm not allowed to post on the XDA thread concerning this matter.

    My phone no longer rotates its screen. At all. All of my auto-rotate settings are ticked, but nothing is happening. Anyone got any ideas about how to rectify this problem?

    Presume you did a full wipe before install?

    CM7 here too and no problems, a full wipe would be a good idea.

    I always do a full wipe before a flash, but I'll do it again tonight, just to see if that works. Won't take too long. I'll let you guys know how it goes. :)

    Google maps is a deliberate omission to save space, I guess the same is true for skype, I for instance would never use it!

    Another thing I noticed is that my battery drains a LOT faster than with Oxygen. I used the phone without WiFi or 3g connection and the battery dropped 45% in only 5 hours. I don't have this problem with other Cyanogen ROMs.

    Yeah I switched to Gingervillain now after I read some of your posts and like it so far. No issues yet, and pretty much every option CM offers is included. I haven't set up apps2sd, but that won't take long. just need to copy my SD content first.

    It's an experience reported by some who have tried cyanogen after or before one of the alternatives

    Have seen a few posts around by people who have noticed it, buy couldn't confirm myself as I haven't tried cm

    Might be worth trying an Eviollet kernel to see if it works. Better for me than gv kernels

    On an unrelated note, how to you change the shortcuts at the top of the notification bar? Like where it has the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/GPS/and sound setting shortcuts, you could change them in CM 6.1 but I don't know where they are in CM 7

    Also my pc doesn't detect my phone, only charging.
    I cannot get my phone in recovery mode too...

    Please HELP !!! :thinking:

    Start a new thread, and tell us exactly what happens. My first instinct would be to wipe and reflash.
