    FYI I had no idea that OV came with an unlocked bootloader/fastboot.

    You can use fastboot to wipe/flash roms. It's quick and is a nice safety net if your recovery fails (for whatever reason).

    More Info

    To access fastboot reboot bootloader. You'll see a blue screen. Connect to a computer and you wipe/flash a new rom very fast/easy.

    Did anyone else see a Quadrant drop from the 03/06 release to 03/07? I run my phone at 748mhz and my scores were regularly 950 or so, now I'm consistently seeing 790. Also noticing some slowness in games that I didn't see previously.

    Was the "VRECOVERY.IMG" a typo? should it be just"RECOVERY.IMG"?

    Also put what 'MOD' on my SD card?

    Which ROM did you use, 'aospCMod-OV-20110307-signed.zip' or 'gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip'?

    Sorry I'm a total NOOB on this tried getting clockwork for like 3 hours still no luck

    Any help would much much appreciated

    I booted the phone into recovery from 'ROMtools', but I don't know how to open the command prompt to the Android SDK directory.

    I've placed the recovery on root but when it's in recovery it doesn't seem as though my computer recognizes it in the CMD prompt.

    I downloaded once more thus rom since I had read that the battery efficiency had increased. Nevertheless I notice that its the same if not worse than the last time. The first night over 4 hours of idle the battery dropped 40%. Time without a signal its 0. Cell standby is 50%. I really love CM 7. I would also like to mention that all of my connections except for 3g are turned off and all settings are changed to conservative. Some of you say that your battery is great, please share with me this secret.

    The battery hasn't yet increased. its still worse. They is two option to increase the battery life....One is to put the phone in Airplane mode when not in use. That's what i do. Second is to dial *#*#4636#*#* Phone information. Scroll down. Select CDMA only. Turn off cell radio, wait a couple seconds. Turn cell radio back on with same button. Exit with home button. Turn airplane mode on, then turn it back off. Note its only a work around to fix cell radio bug . And you only going to get 1x instead of 3G... when you choose second option

    Maybe you have a bad battery. When i leave it unplugged overnight it usually goes down by like 10-20%

    I was concerned about battery life while reading this thread. I bit the bullet and upgraded anyway and I must say, I see no change in battery life.

    My guess is ROMTools just does adb commands for you. You probably need to show it where the adb tool is. You can get this either by downloading the android SDK. Or you can just download the adb/dependencies from CyanogenMod's official mirror...Index of /tools/

    Just download adb.zip for windows or linux, unzip and point romtools to that dir.

    If you find some free time read up there. Its all pretty simple commands once you go through it a few times. It's good stuff to know.

    My battery dies quickly as well. I've calibrated and all and still my battery dies. Maybe my cell signal is weak, even overnight on wifi. But froyo roms yield better (a lot better) battery stamina.

    a temp fix for this is when ever ur not using data turn it off i do and my battery will last upwards of 10hrs+ on medium use 6-7 on heavy use

    and on froyo i yeild the same results stop background apps from running and turn off anything your not using its the same concept as conserving power in your house if ur not using it turn it off and it will help
