There might be a fix for the Proximity Sensor problem while calling.

Read and discuss about it here:

I also want to thank everybody who has a part in creating this amazing ROM.

Special thanks to tilal6991 for all his great work and to Wacky.ddw for creating the perfect installation guide.

I have a bug.

I cannot change my camera profile without the camera forceclosing (Beach, Night, etc)

Yes looks to be 180 degrees out... odd as other compass applications seem to orient correctly.

Even more strange is that if you hold the phone slightly away from horizontal, it works properly.

I hope it is just a configuration file somewhere. No much time to look at this these days

I’m running this ROM and use Link2SD. Now I would like to force uninstall a few preinstalled apps that I never use using “titanium backup” but I’m not sure it’s safe to do. Can somebody give me some advice? The apps I had in mind are:

ROMManager (don’t use it)

File Manager (Since I use ES File Explorer)

News & Weather (don’t use it)

Thanks in advance

I have an odd problem, quite often in the last time, when playing a movie or running an application with sound, the phone is starting microphony very loud. It stop by itself when I stop the running application. What could be the source of the problem?

This thread should be locked. The rom has been depreciated and is no longer supported. Please look to ice armour as a cm7 alternative.

As an ex blade user and a lifelong cm7 fan, is it me or does cm7 for Skate feel a lot smoother and zippier? Plus the customisations available, and battery life gives me a day of heavy usage fine, got absolutely no problems with it. Why isn't everyone on this rom??

There is already a cm9 rom.This rom cannot be updated to cm9 as it is a completely different android version.

If you want a more updated version of cm7 then use this:

This rom is not supported anymore!

I want to use OMC with this ROOM for corporate mail; the remote exchange server requires that the phone supports external security services (hardware/ firmware related!), such as erase data, password rules etc. All phones and Android devices I tried support this, except for one cheap no-brand phone from China.

Does this phone (this ROOM) support this as well?

Thank you.

I use Ice Armour II which is based on cm7 and you can add corporate accounts in settings I haven't tried it though. You should use Ice Armour II if you want CM7 as this rom is no longer supported

I had to use an app called Touchdown (which is not free). The default email app gives an error message about the phone not supporting the necessary security requirements.

I believe the security requirements required by our exchange server are to remote-wipe the emails in case I report the phone lost, and to require a pin to access the emails.

The mobile lost the wifi connection every time, how can I fix it?

I'd suggest moving onto Ice Armor 2, this version is no longer supported. Tilal has moved to developing CM9 now.

I'd rather stick with this (I was happy enough with it on my old blade). Okay it took me one evening to get the drivers sorted and unlock it and admin it and then an hour the next night to get clockworkmod running and put the CM7 nightly onto it. Great posts on here though I did find the giff gaff entries very useful.

I'm moving to giffgaff in about a weeks time when my contract finishes :D

Ice Armor II is a great CM7 rom, and still supported, I'm using it when not testing ICS.

Using CM7 on both my Skate and Blade I seem to get more space for apps on the Blade.

I read the Skate also has 512mb of memory.

Does it need unlocking like the blade had to be or is it being taken up by other resources?

Thanks,

LJ.

Update: okay found the TPT entries, not too sure if I should be messing with the memory layout.
