    I am wondering about this as well
    Easy. Go to beta.swype.com and register. Follow instructions and you will be provided a link. Do this on your phone so you can download the installer. It works great. The only issue is if you reboot your phone, it reverts back and swype will not function correctly. To rectify this you go to settings > language and keyboard and you will see both keyboards are selected. Untick swype and then hit back. Go back again to settings > language and keyboard and untick android keyboard and tick swype, it will display a message, hit ok and thats it.

    I love this ROM too.

    Great battery life (with SetCPU profiles established). Over 1100 Quadrant (825 MHz stable). Included Xionia kernel is more stable and smoother than one included in AOSP (though that ROM is pretty awesome too).

    A couple of minor tweak suggestions:
    1. Make available the Virgin Mobile apks as installable options (the self-activation one and the one that allows you to check minutes without using minutes would be nice).
    2. Have the associated Clockwork Mod (Xionia .4 version) be recognizable by ROM Manager as flashed. Or, provide a ROM-Manager-recognizable recovery image (I wish that Clockwork Mod 3.0.0.6 from AOSP ROM was recognizable, as I could just use that).

    Thanks for the hard work.

    Do you know if the battery draining "Cell standby bug" can be addressed in a future build?

    I have not noticed this issue with this rom

    Does anyone know how to get setcpu to work with this rom? The cyanogen tweaks seem to override it even if I don't have them on

    Try not checking "Set on Boot" in Cyanogen settings and do it instead in SetCPU app. Then restart the phone. Fyi, I noticed that when you change the frequency in SetCPU it changes also in Cyanogen settings. So I guess whichever was updated last will take effect.

    I'm also still having problems with the battery being drained by cell standby on this rom.

    I was using the AOSP CM7 rom previously and after checking the battery stats, I noticed that the cell standby was not much of an issue. But strangely enough the stats showed with that rom that the display was destroying my battery.

    Display on this version of CM7 was quite small.

    Have you reset battery stats in recovery (advanced menu)?

    They had a similar issue with the blackberry when it came out, something to do with their network and should be fixed "soon"
    stock mms *should* be working - works fine on me, wife's, and a few others i've talked to

    incoming mms on the cm7/2.3 ports doesn't work, and it supposedly has something to do with how Virgin handles the mms.apk

    CyanogenMod just updated their sources to Gingerbread 2.3.3 so I'll have a new build up later today hopefully. There are people working on incoming MMS, so hopefully its just a matter of time until its figured out.

    Sounds awesome. I prefer your rom over aosp because of battery life and stock gb launcher.

    I am having a problem with Swype on this ROM. It installs and the keyboard works when tapping it, but when I try to swype a word the keyboard just flashes. Anybody have ideas?

    Do I have to have my Optimus V activated before I apply CM7? I activated it online but I can't use it to make any calls. Did I break it somehow by applying CM7 before I did the online activation?

    Well you probably should have waited for it to activate first. When you flashed this rom you got rid of the "activate" button in the settings. I have read that some peoples phones don't activate right away and using the activate button worked for them some of the time. You could try flashing your stock nandroid backup and using the activate button and waiting a bit.

    Was trying to port my number by dialing ##VIRGIN# while on the phone with the customer service and nothing comes up... Going to flash back to stock to do it... Unless it's just a missing .apk I can apply. Any Ideas?

    PS. Love this rom! Much better than stock.

    It didn't seem to work at my end, I might be doing something wrong, but is this a bug in CM7?

    Anyway, I'll update to the latest 2.3.3 ROM that icemank121 just posted and see if the issue persists.

    It looks like 2.3.3 broke the hold-the-volumn-key-to-skip-song for the music app when the phone is locked.

    I had aospCMod ROM and clockwork recovery. Just format /system, /data, cache, and delvik cache from Clockwork recovery, then install the nightly zip.

    I have aospCMod ROM and im deciding between red's stock rom n this one...
    2.3 fix that game buggy problem on angry birds for me... but 2.3 runs slower than the stock rom i used to have.

    after importing them back.

    edit: nevermind, reflashing gapps brought them back. was that there before?
