I've been following CM7's effort since mid-January, and this is the first negative news I've heard of. It sounds like it could possibly be a big setback, especially for hopes of seeing CM7 for the NC sometime this month.
The primary trouble we are having with the CM7 port is "sleep death." Prior to now we have assumed sleep was working on other versions of Android as they appeared to be sleeping and resuming without issue. However, we have come to the realization that no version of Android is able to sleep with a kernel compiled from B&N source. It seems B&N has not given us the proper source code for the kernel.
All of our effort is now centered on getting a 2.6.32 kernel and going from there.
EDIT as of 14FEB11: There's been a recent smattering of posts from dalingrin and fat-tire on the CM7 development. It sounds like it'll be at least March before we see CM7 for the NC. It's unfortunate -- so much enthusiasm has gone into the partial build of honeycomb that people are forgetting about CM7, and as a result CM7 is moving forward much more slowly than it did in mid-January. Fingers crossed, but it doesn't look good...
