    In mid-February the first round of RC's (release candidates) popped up for CM7 on some devices. However, the Droid was not one of those.

    Finally today the second round, RC2, has hit for several devices and this time includes our beloved Droid. I know there aren't a ton of people on this forum that still run the Droid, but for those of us that do, we can do a bit of a happy dance today.

    Checkout the link and download cm-7.0.0-RC2.

    We skipped RC1 and went straight to RC2!

    ...That don't seem right. At least call RC2 RC1 for the sake of us OCD-types.

    Thanks, I would of just got this from ROM Manager but since I had to get a new phone and paid through Paypal and Koush won't reply to anything I send him, all I can get is the free version...*frustration*

    PS. I will never support Koush again...terrible dev in my opinion!

    I woke up this morning and thought I was the first one to see this! I know there are still plenty of people rocking the Droid. Can't wait to flash this.

    Does anyone have a link to the latest gapps handy? I've always used Rom manager to auto download it but not this time.

    I didn't get the update notification in ROM Manager. It would notify me of nightly build updates, but not that the RC was available. I think it looks for the next-in-line of whatever you're currently running. I don't anticipate my ROM Manager alerting me to a new nightly while I'm running RC2.

    As many apps as Koush has under his belt, I'd give it time if you haven't already. Hell, he changed the icon back in 24hrs when a bunch of users left comments on ROM Manager. He's actually one of the more attentive devs I've seen.

    In fact, if it weren't for Koush, you wouldn't have CM7 for your Droid. He's one of the 3 or so maintaining devs for CM on the Droid.

    Quick, stable and sexy. Love my Chevy No. 1 kernels on CM. Makes my DX jealous.

    Yeah, it is in the free Cyanogen folder not the nightly build folder.

    I gave him time...he tweets multiple times a day and I tweet him 5 min later and he never replies, and no replies on email.

    And regarding the icon, what a bunch of D-bags...I liked the new icon personally, and how lame is that to cry about a icon lolz

    Try contacting him through the channels he's established for support. i.e. email the dev via the Market.

    Love it!

    I installed it on my sister's bf's Droid and he loves it. He also has no idea what root is aside that it will void warranty but he has no complaints.

    It seems like CM7 is the most stable CM rom to date? I never liked any of the previous versions on my droid (always experienced slow home-screen refreshes) and didn't like 6.1 on the DInc. Now I don't use any other rom other than cm7.

    Geolocation is not working for CM7. Thats the only thing i can find wrong with it. I always wanted just the clock on the homescreen, and not the clock and the weather. lol

    Mine is pretty stable, BUT -

    My home screen lags horribly. Almost every time I hit the home button to get out of any app, my phone has to reload the launcher. The whole screen turns black except the notification shade for about 2-3 seconds, then my background loads, then my shortcuts, and then finally my clock widget at the top. Then it runs slow for 5-10 seconds, and if I open the app tray it has to repopulate the icons in the app tray.

    I'm using LauncherPro, but it does the same thing with ADWLauncher. My CM6.2 or whatever it was didn't do this. We installed CM7 on my girl's, and hers is doing the same thing.

    It's really, really frustrating and while I love EVERYTHING about gingerbread - especially the locking animation - if I can't fix this I'm flashing back. I can't handle how slow it is trying to reload the home screen.

    Any ideas?

    From time to time I've had that same problem with LP. Give it time, we're still not to a final release, this is just an RC. I expect things like this to be pretty well ironed out for the final.

    Yeah, I've had it before but its been a long time. And if it were just launcherpro I'd use ADW, buuut it's both :/

    I even turned on the "lock in memory" option and it still doesn't work right. Meh, any ideas? Any tweaks I can do?

    Is noone else's doing this?
