Man o man and I just did a full wipe on #36. Now I gotta do it again!
Edit - Just checked ROM Manager - not there yet, gotta download from the link.
Edit of the Edit - Oooooo I should have read the link first - no need for a full wipe if you're upgrading from nightlies!

I'm switching from 6 to 7, and it is force closing after I flash. It will load the cyanogen 7 screen, but when I get to the welcome screen with the hand scrolling over the android, it force closes. From there everything works except for pushing it to begin.
Anyone else having this problem?

Upstreammiami and others coming from a new rom. Here's a link to Nightly #38. It works on a clean install and is identical to RC1 if you are interested. Tonight's #39 will fix a latent rotary lockscreen image.

If you install #38 + GAPPS (If you have not installed GAPPS already) and then download RC1, wipe cache and dalvik, then install RC1 it should work fine.
Slayher and some other devs have reported that they are already working on an RC1 fix for the problem. Apparently, some of the build files were not correct for the DInc. RC's are compiled by hand, not by bot. Oops - I'll post back when I see that the new RC is up.

Does anyone know if USB mounting works in more recent builds? I was running nightly #29 and it would freeze my phone every time I tried to mount it as an external drive. I booted into recovery and loaded the RC1 zip there and then flashed it over #29 (no wipe, as instructed). I am sort of new to this stuff, but my understanding is that RC1 is just a nightly that was deemed stable enough to be the first beta release. So if my thinking is correct, it should just patch everything and bring me up to par with the current release, right? I tried USB mounting after flashing RC1 and it still froze my phone. Is this an isolated incident or still a broken feature in the ROM?
