Because of the problem I had with RC1 that is why I didn't bother with RC2.
I been using the nightly builds and never had a problem like that before. Been with cm7 since the first build. The nightly builds have been good to me . I'm currently on #30. Only issue is the camcorder will force close. That is a new one. Previous builds didn't have that issue. As long as the camera works I'm good.
With what the people have been reporting in that forum, if your phone starts to crash like theirs, then go to a different rom. No need to kill your phone just for a popular rom. Just saying.
If you still want to try it out with everything working then try build #29. Like I said I never had a problem with the nightly builds. Maybe one or two reboots since it came out. Not too bad for a nightly in my opinion.

I don't want to add fuel to the fire, but I just got my first reboot. I downloaded Pulse from the market and as I was setting it up: freeze, reboot. When it came back I had a message that my sd card was damaged and I needed to format it. I think i'll try one of the nightly builds since I really like this ROM! I need camcorder, though, so perhaps #28?

Thanks everyone for your input. I remember using CM 6 I believe RC1 on my Hero; it did reboot a lot towards the end (before my EVO), but never bricked on me, I did have the most current radio at that time.
I think your information makes me worry less, but still let me know which radio you are using right now. I hope I have the same so I won't crash and reboot constantly.

interesting.. i was running cm7 for a while and started to get a TON of reboots.. no real reason or rhyme.. they'd just happen.
It got to the point of where I decided to just flash cm6... well, it wouldnt work.. not my nandroid restores OR fresh installs.. same with RC1 and RC2 of CM7..
I tried clockwork recovery AND AM recovery.
I finally this morning after tons of trial and error just did a clean whip of everything and installed the latest FRESH rom.. all is good now.

I was using CM 7 from Rc1 to nightly #31. Last night I was going to nandroid and flash Sprint Lovers Rom in order to do a few things that CM wouldn't allow me to. Upon wiping everything and installing Sprint Lovers Rom, my phone just about bricked. Sprint lovers would boot but wouldn't reboot after install. Recovery was gone, no screen, no red triangle, no nothing, just 3 vibrations and a dead phone until I pulled the battery again. Not sure if it was Sprint Lovers Rom, CM 7 rom, a combination of changing between the two even though I did the format all.zip. Something really weird going on definitely, enough I unrooted my phone and went back to stock.
OK everyone, I finally took the plunge into CM7 with RC2 on Sunday night, no reboots or anything at all, just perfect so far.
Before flashing I wiped cache, data & Dalvik cache just to be safe. I hope I get no reboots.
I did read RC3 apparently was rebooting a lot, then just saw RC4 is already out, less than 48 hours for RC3, I guess that issue may be fixed!
