There was so many people asking me to give them a CM7 ROM that I decided to make a thread.

First things first, this is an UNOFFICIAL ROM. That means you can't post issues on the CyanogenMod bug tracker, basically you can't call this a true CyanogenMod ROM because it's not official. Of course you can still post issues and bugs here, on this thread.

Secondly, I'd like to thank, obviously, Tom G, because without him we wouldn't have all the wonderful CM ROMs we have today. I am just using his device config to compile CM7, he did the bulk of the work. Thank you in the name of the entire community!
Now let's get to the good stuff.

Download links:Changelog

2011-04-20: Updated CM source (CM 7.0.0 final).
			This release should finally fix the Market/APK install bug.
			Removed LauncherPro.
			Include CMWallpapers and ROM Manager again.
			Fixed manual network selection bug (Tom G).
			Discontinued Chinese input support.
			Discontinued custom DT A2SD and Gapps, now recommended to use "vanilla" DT A2SD and Gapps.

See https://gist.github.com/898748 for the full changelog.

How do I install this ROM?
  • Download the ROM, Gapps and DT A2SD.
  • Transfer them to your phone's SD card.
  • Using ClockworkMod recovery:
    • Make a nandroid backup.
    • Wipe data / factory reset.
    • Flash the zips (ROM, then Gapps and DT A2SD).
    • Reboot.
  • If anything goes wrong, restore the nandroid backup you made.
What do I do after installing it?
  • Using CyanogenMod Settings, enable OC and enable the "Set on boot" option.
  • Disabling the window animations/transitions will also make the phone go faster.
  • Some users have reported that LauncherPro and Zeam Launcher are faster than ADW.Launcher.
  • Using DT A2SD to store apps and dalvik cache on SD Card will also come with a big performance boost.
  • Enable swap.
  • If you want additional touchpal languages (English is included by default), install the APKs.
Don't forget to give some feedback (bugs, opinions, suggestions, issues...). Enjoy :D

Very Good ROM. CM7 brings a number of interesting funcionalities. Nice work...

Antonio: Any idea why NDRIVE doesn't run on this ROM? Have you been able to use it?

Six people have tested this firmware on u8230 there and agreed that it was very slow for everyday use. Good luck and look forward to revised version.

Really nice! It works ) Comparing to first builds of Gingerbread it's very fast. It's very important to disable transitions animation. It's really great and hard work! Thank you very much ))) Will write here if any problems apear.

Kernel 2.6.29.
CPU: Interface freezes sometimes. 5.04MFLOPS@724Mhz. I can reccomend to set min fq = max fq = 710 (if your device can run at it) in cyanogen mod settings, because slow...
RAM: 103M of 230M is free. possible for 8220 it is horror, but for 8230 it works. So I set VM heap size to 32M.
Camera: doesn't work at all. For some users it matters. After running camera app (even without result) - system runs very slow. reboot.
3G and Wifi: works.
"Rotation bug" persists (rotation sometimes locks in one position until reboot).

I found the rom is very slow if you use ADW that it comes with. I've switched to LP plus and it's much faster.

Still, thanks for your (and Tom G's, of course!) work on this! :D

Can confirm visually - launcher pro much faster. but system panel lite says that most cpu time consumption goes from 'system' process.

Looks good.
What are the chances of this getting approved by the official CM team without the camera working?
Hope it gets approved though.

Wish someone at HuaWei would leak the source of the drivers though, would make our lives much easier :D

WTH, didn't you read Tom's thread?
He explicitly said he didn't wan't people to make a rom like this.
If you wan't to try it you can build the rom from source.
Since Tom made all this possible and he doesn't accept donations, the least you can you is respect his opinion.
But although he said it a few times it might be possible that you didn't see his posts and just read the requests for the rom.
Please remove the rom and wait till it gets approved or untill Tom releases it.

Works perfectly on my TMN A1 (256mb RAM), with OC on, and launcher pro. I don´t miss the camera (i have an iphone 4 too), so i´m very happy with it...it´s not slower than the CyanogenMod Plus ROM i was using before
