    I'm using the default nexus live wallpaper that came installed with the ROM. Interestingly enough live wallpaper is only using 2% of my battery so I didn't think to change it, but maybe that really is the problem. I'll pick another wallpaper and see if that helps.

As great as CM7 is if I can't improve my battery life I'l have to switch to another ROM because this is just absurd. I've been charging my battery pretty much all day and It's now only ad 76%.

    And on top of my battery problem I just checked into My Verizon again and even though I have CM7 set to never turn off wifi and I Completely disabled mobile networks it somehow still managed to use more of my monthly 3g allowance. Time to unroot and go back to stock, unfortunately.

    That's odd because you can't use my Verizon over Wi-Fi.

    I didn't use the app, for some reason the app has never worked for me wifi or no. Instead I just used the my Verizon web site.

    No but it will make the laugh track more sarcastic.



    Sorry, I could not help myself. It's been that kind of day.

    YES... it can, and actually if you keep doing it prolly will... be careful. The CPU is not really meant to take alot of abuse for a long period of time.

    Can I ask why you are trying to overclock... are you a gamer on your phone?
    also, I watch tv (kind of) all the time on my phone, and I have it underclocked... I think it has to do with your 3g or wi-fi signal.

    Man, that sucks. I can understand it want to stick with stock, but another option could be to try cyanogenmod 6.1 . As a released version, it may be a better fit with your less common usage since they've had more time to iron out the kinks with wifi and such.

    Post nightly #11

    I haven't noticed any major differences between #6 and #11... I Have noticed a difference in my overall phone performance!!! Since Flashing, I have not had any more freeze ups and lag. also, sometimes running at stock ROM, my phone would act like someone was pressing the screen (highlighting), that has stopped. I am overall happy with this Frankenstein version of gingerbread great work CM!!!

    #12 has some kernel changes and some Icon updates.


    There will be more updates and changes that will be relevant to us. When they will come and what exactly they will be is a mystry. But, that in and of itself is part of the thrill of nightlies. Every day is like Christmas Eve!

    When my current usage cycle ends and my 3g limit resets I might just do that. I was originally going to use 6.1 because it's the "stable" ROM, but I ended up going with 7. Can anyone tell me how well wifi works with 6.1? What is this I've read about needing to update your radio to use 6.1? And does 6.1 have any other bugs or issues I should know about beforehand?

    There is a new kernel with build 12. Mostly just updated modules to work with 2.3.3.

    I added a little information on the smartass governor to the OP, as I've noticed it creating quite a bit of confusion lately. I would also like to remind everyone to please read the OP all the way through before asking questions. Thanks to everyone who has made this thread so awesome! We have more then 300 posts and 8,000 views on this thread! Let's see if we can't make the front page

    It's still slayher's 2.6.37.1 kernel, just some changes to either enhance imporvement or to conform to 2.3.3 standards. There was not a lot of detail in the Submit ticket. I've been using it since he folded it into the build pre RC1. It works verry well.
