    Developer: Blarf

    Builder: BobZhome

    Current Version: CM7.2.0 RC0-LW690-BobZhome (1-17-2011)
    Description: Well, let's be honest. Unless you're living under a rock, you probably know what Android 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) is. Furthermore, you should know what the CyanogenMod project is. However, if a rock is really your home and you'd like to learn more, please visit their site: http://www.cyanogenmod.com

    People worked with/owe thanks to:

    • Alex Zepeda a.k.a Blarf - For his great skills on developing for the Android.
    • Koushik Dutta a.k.a Koush - For his bad-ass recover.
    • Steve Kondik a.k.a Cyanogen - Seriously? Do I need to state why we owe thanks to this guy?
    • PlayfulGod - For help with getting need files and his CWM recovery for this phone

    What Does Not work?

    • Probably MMS

      To enable: Settings > CyanogenMod settings > Lockscreen > Style options > Ring-Lock style > Holo style

    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 OC's were created equally.

    Love it. I could not get wifi to work, kept saying error, everything else I tried worked great, including overclocking.

    Wifi should(others have said it is) be working on the newest build CM7.1RC1-LW690-BobZhome-090511.zip
    Make sure your on the 9/5 build, if you are try re-flashing it.

    You can use any recovery you have on your phone, just be sure to backup your current ROM, just in case anything goes wrong.

    Ok so everything seems to be working except the camera which reboots sometimes and works fine other times, and the gps. But I have tried a variety of games and apps with great success. A big thanks to all who have devoted time and effort on this project.

    If your have issues with your camera, try lowering you Over Clocking a little bit ;)

    Well camera doesn't cause reboot. But it does take pictures upside down. Kinda weird. Other than that no bugs. Animations work. No insufficient space errors. Good job. Thanks

    I figured out the camera issue, it will be fixed with next build.
    Try sending a picture message when you have good reception(4 or 5 bars) and let me know if it works or not.
    Thanks for the feedback,
