First CM7 RC has Landed for the Droid!!!
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.

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.

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

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.

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.
