Thanks for the heads up on this OP it works great. I have been running this ROM all day I have tested just about everything at least everything I use daily with no issues. Bluetooth works GPS works WIMAX works this ROM is OC'ed to 1.5 mhz it is fast and smooth. I am getting 1500's in Quadrant without even trying meaning that is with everything on.If you like you some CM and Gingerbread jump on this ROM I am glad I did.
Watch out for programs that are not compatible with Gingerbread I installed a 4G toggle widget and it killed my 4G and GPS I had to remove it and then reset my Shift to get them back. If something stops working backtrack till you find the problem lots of programs are not yet comparable with Gingerbread. This is not a CM7 issue the program developers just simply have not made the necessary changes yet.

Stayed up late last night flashing and restoring backups. So far I'm pretty thrilled. I get a 2162 on Quadrant. I am able to get 4g and my bluetooth paired with my car just fine.
Bugs I've noticed so far
1. Headphones don't work. (Saw a post somewhere that said this is a known issue)
2. 3g signal strength seems off. Standing next to my air rave I have 1 bar of signal. I'm not sure how this ROM translates DB into bars of signal, nor have I tried making/receiving calls, but the displayed signal seems off.
3. LED Torch app doesn't work.

Cell Standby 26%
Phone Idle 20%
Maps 4% (haven't even opened it today)
Words with Friends 2%
Speed Test 2%

just downloaded this and love it, am going to play with it today to see how it goes, but I did notice one thing, I wasn't able to restore my apps using titatieum backup. It went through the process, but when I went into my app draw, none of my apps showed up. I had to do it manually through the market...

Here are the I took steps to install cm7
Make nand backup (In case something goes wrong)
Wipe Data, Wipe Cache, Format system, Wipe dalvik
Flash cm7 after it says "install from sdcard complete" Do not restart. Flash Google Apps. Then restart

Able to get Mms working with GoSms:
1: Download GoSms from the market
2: Open GoSms
3: Go into menu then into settings, scroll to mms related.
4: Check the box that says Fill apn configuration manually
5: Under MMSC enter
6: Under MMS PORT enter 80
7: You can test by sending a Mms message to yourself

So I agree, there are some reception issues with this mod.I like phones.
The 3g is signal for me was weak. When first installing I was only getting 92-95dbm. I was able to boost the signal by 1st making a nand backup of cm7 and settings then I restored a stock rooted rom that I have stored. After the stock rooted rom is loaded I started the the phone this time its booting up into the stock rooted rom after loaded no need to sign into google. Go into settings its either system updates or software updates then update profile and update prl. After that turn off phone for about a minute then boot into recovery restore the nand backup of cm7 just made. After doing this my signal is greatly improved I'm now getting 75-78 dbm. I'm not saying this will work for everyone but for me it. I hope it helps
