CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Quick FYI - a thread covering RC2 and subsequent nightly builds is currently under construction here and will be maintained and updated regularly by Victor Von Zeppelin

Make sure you read the first page of that thread thoroughly - the goal is to keep it updated with carefully sifted wisdom from the subsequent pages and pages of posts

Jacob / Victor - hope you don't mind me posting this plug here - please PM me if you do and I will do your bidding! -Cheers

Already running this for 2-3 hours (had it before from Jacob), with the Gingerbread Launcher from Steven Lin or Eugene373 (the MoDaCo one is too fat and unoptimised, I think it got abandoned), looks good untill now. No differences to N14 though, that's pretty normal as they are almost the same.

Too early to tell, 3 hours 15 minutes since install, airplane mode, no gapps, apps, mods, 7% lost. But as I said it's too early. I'll report in 12 hours.

No, that's actually one of the greatest problems on CM7, idle battery consumption is berserk, trying now with deleted ROM manager in airplane mode for 12 hours.

As a matter of interest, does anybody know if the battery life problem caused by unusually high drain when the phone is sleeping is affecting other phones using CM7 or is this just Blade problem which needs to be resolved? I know that there have been other complaints about poor battery life on Gingerbread, but I'm thinking specifically about the drain which occurs when the phone should not be in use.
