    Anyone try it? If so a quick run down of battery life would be great since the Rc1 wasn't too good with it.

    Do I need to wipe data and factory reset in cwm? Also do I need to flash gapps again? I'm running cm7 rc1. Can I just flash? Also can someone provide a download link for the zip?

    Just installed the new release this morning. Its too early to tell, but battery life seems same or worse than the nightlies.

    Like I said, I wont know for sure for about 24 hours but early results dont seem to be any improvement.

    Are the features up to par with the nightlies? Mainly BLN, Voodoo, Overclock, etc?

    (It's 2.3.7 right?)

    I've been debating installing this too. Ended up going back to Pete's for now but got the itch for a change...so any feedback about it would be great.

    Downloading right now. Gonna see how it is. My battery life on 131 is funky. (Been running Stock 2.3.7 with netarchy for a few days and cm7 just went down to 61% in less than 3 hours on me. 40 minutes screen on. I wiped battery when I installed, too.)

    Edit:

    First: Everything seems to be there. Nothing missing from what I was using. (I guess we knew that, lol).
    Second: Google Wallet worked when updating. For anyone interested and not up to date; who, don't' wanna lose google wallet: this is what I did:

    1- Wipe Cache
    2- Wipe Dalvik
    3- Install 7.1 Stable
    4- Flash Walletfix (Already had wallet on 131).

    Will report back battery later.

    I have been running this since about 11AM this morning. Typical amount of phone calls, BT,emails, FB, angry birds... you get the picture. Battery life seems about the same, maybe a little better, but nothing substantial. Otherwise, it almost doesn't seem much different from the 7.0 #132 that I was using. WiFi and signal strength are exactly the same as before. All other settings are identical, from what I can tell.

    My $0.02.

    I would assume, since the nightlies are just tests for new CM versions, that the stable would be identical the latest nightlies with the bugs worked out.

    Makes perfect sense when you think about it that way.

    Wish the battery manufacturers would keep up like the developers, and make life a little easier on us all...

    Half the time I try new ROM is in hopes there will be a battery life extender magically placed in there somewhere.

    Batteries are always a decade behind technology. Take a battery from today and put it in an OG Gameboy. You'd have battery life for months. 10 years from now they'll have batteries that would have gave our phones, today, juice for a week with constant gaming and calling. And, the phones then will have battery for 8 hours, L O L!.

    Just the way it works.

    Whatever happened to that battery RCA made that charged itself off WiFi frequencies? Guess that was a bust. lol.

    Some apps have gapps preinstalled, if not you can always find and flash those.
    It is recommended to wipe everything then flash rom, then flash kernel if your picking a different one, then gapps. Then reboot, then Hard Reset by taking the battery our for two mins then booting up.

    I assume another Cm7 build. In that case, no.

    1- Wipe Cache
    2- Wipe Dalvik
    3- Install

    I just went from Nightly 131 to 7.1 stab that way.

    If your talking about another rom. Yes. Data wipe.

    Edit: No need to reinstall gapps when going from cm7 to cm7. However, if you have wallet then flash it again before you reboot.

    Yo krispy. 1 hour. 20 minutes screen on. 10% gone. So mathematically speaking. 10 hours with 3.3 hours of screen on. Give or take for different usage.

    That was some messaging and a bit of web.

    Edit: that's inside with 3 bars spotty signal.

    FYI: Google Wallet doesn't run correctly in the background. I put my phone up to the machine and it didn't do anything. Every time I open the app (after a while) it says initializing for a second. I think the system is closing the service in the background.

    If you were running a current nightly you should be good.I thought they were 2.3.7 for a bit already, could be wrong CM7 hasn't been my daily driver for a few weeks. .

    You should always wipe the Dalvik cache, that doesn't do anything but make the first boot a bit longer.

    Other than that, you only need to wipe data/cache when it's a big jump.

    Cavet there, recent nightlies of CM7 and I would assume 7.1 stable have Google Wallet in there and while I know they were working on getting that installed without needing to do a complete wipe I'm not sure they got there yet. If you can't run Google Wallet or get any FCs you should backup and wipe data/cache.

    Typically about every 5-10 builds of a ROM, I do a wipe data/cache. Might be just placebo but I feel like I get better overall stability doing that.

    Don't forget your phone needs a few days to get used to a rom before it relearns everything. So battery life will not be any good the first day or 2. Once its settled then you can properly judge battery life
