    not gunna happen

    i should elaborate

    the moment doesnt have cm, in fact there is only a few devices that have it. the nexus s has a mostly working version (if not fully), and the big 4 galaxy s phones.. for example here is the epic 4g cm7's status


    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=992318

    it has taken a team of very talented devs a long time to even get this much working. throw in the fact that your hardware is different from them and it all goes to crap even more. hell the vibrant and captivate are the closest related to each other and they still have issues running each others roms. sorry to be such a downer but if it happens its gunna be a LONG time til then..

    This man speaks the truth. Our best bet is to watch what becomes available for the epic 4g then try to piggyback off that. Its the indulges closest relative.

    The Optimus M is nothing at all like the Indulge. The only similarity is that they're both on MetroPCS. ;)

    i too would love to see cm7 on the indulge. the only way it probably would happen if indulge owners decide to dive in. i don't have an indulge or i'd be more than willing to help. i will say that the optimus m having cm7 does give a lil hope. they're both on metro. the only reason the ascend has one is because you have cricket and metro working on it (identical phones besides data/mms settings.) the only way metro phones will have mods is if we as metro users make them. how do you think mods happen? people with their devices want more and start playing :)

    This post title is misleading.
    There is just about zero hope to get cm7 on the Indulge.

    The ONLY reason the Optimus got it was because its available on many other carriers.

    according to the people working on the optimus m version of cm7 there was a lot of work that had to be done. i don't even think they have everything working on it yet like on the v version.

    neither Here nor There
    Having the two carriers on the Ascend does make the community bigger, but it was really just one guy (Isaacj87) who got everything working for CM7 on the Ascend.

    I have the ascend and cm7 is fully working and dont say it is not possible cause no one thought cm7 would ever work on a low end device like the ascend

    That's funny, because both the ascend and the Optimus were rooted and had custom recoveries in a matter of 1-2 months. The indulge has been out since Mar 18, and it still has no custom recovery. Being a dev of the only indulge Rom currently available, I don't have much room to work without a kernel. CM7 pretty much requires a custom kernel, or kernel source, which we dont have. That means all the benefits of CM7 are nonexistant, till we get one. We've pestered samsung for the last 4 months, and we've yet to get a working kernel. They even updated the source for the indulge, which turned out to be a renamed file, with the same md5 (meaning they basically lied to us).

    Its possible to port over certain aspects of the CM7, but probably like 85% of CM7 is reliant on a custom kernel. Its hard to explain what a kernel fully does, but it allows pretty much ultimate customization of the roms. Without it we can't over clock, change the boot animation, add tweaks in preformance, or new fuctions. If anyone can pull a full port of the CM7 I will applaud them. But as it stands, the indulge IS on two providers btw, and we still have barely any assistance. To top it off most of the devs do not have an Indulge, meaning its harder for them to develop stuff.

    If you guys want to pitch in, i'd be nice to see you in the IRC contributing.

    How'd you get that!
    That's PlayfulGod early alpha testing rom.
    It may not even boot completely. As it stands, it's still in early development stages. So unless you're a fellow developer trying to help him out, I'd suggest keeping away. For now. ;)

    This is correct, nothing has booted yet. Not to mention for those who dont know, the link posted is to my github which is for the source code, not to a compiled ROM.

    But any help is welcomed, esp from devs or just anyone familiar with samsungs way of doing crap lol.

    Take a second to think about just why that didn't work...

    "Galaxy S2"
    "Indulge"

    Hmm...

    To be honest, admire his spunk.

    He is far better than I am at flashing random things to my phone.
