I'm loving this ROM but I'm also having a few problems on my San Francisco II.

Wifi doesn't function. It says it turns on but doesn't show any APs and turns itself off less than a minute later.
Camera force closes with the warning "Cannot connect to camera." The camera appears to work fine in Goggles.
Edit: Autobrightness also doesn't seem to work. It remains at max. brightness at all times.
(Could these problems be down to me restoring my data from an old ROM using Titanium Backup or not correctly clearing a cache when installing the ROM?)
The tilt sensor doesn't work properly but I've never had a ROM in which it does.


I've seen you requesting logcats and I'd be happy to provide them if you can explain how!
I've read all the posts in this thread so I hope I haven't missed anything relevant to me.
Hope this helps and thanks for your great work. It's much appreciated.


No wipe no whine. :P Clear everything, especially as these ROMs are AOSP and not modified stock.

What's the best ROM to go for?

I was getting an awful battery drain in CM9, so I suppose it is a toss up between CM7 and Fish n Chips.

There is no "best" as it's subjective. I have best battery life on CM9 so I use that as I want ICS.

The tilt sensor doesn't work properly but I've never had a ROM in which it does.

I'm also using a SFII and got a few issues, yes, but none of the ones you pointed out. WiFi and Bluetooth work ok, just that tethering gives an error in CM7 at the moment. Works in CM9 though. Only thing, to turn on BT, you need to turn WiFi on first and keep it like that.

Camera will have issues if you change the scene settings and not open anymore. Happened to me once but a factory reset solved that and I'm not touching that for now. All other camera options work except a few filters which do nothing.

Auto brightness is a bit slow, but works well. As for you restoring, may be so. Then again, you could clean everything and do a clean flash and see. I keep 3 separate SD's with nandroid backups for Seb's debranded GB, Daz CM9 and 7 :)

Tilt sensor works properly too, in all ROMs I've had. Only that in this (CM7) it won't change from one landscape position to complete opposite, that is it won't flip the screen, if you don't take it through normal right way up orientation first.

Hmm weird, my screen flips 180 no problem. Still my permanent rom. Camera closes shortly after opening it, but I'm not missing it. Thinking I should give CM9 a punt.

Interesting, what do your battery stats say?

Whats the easiest way to install CMW on this ROM, as there is no Install Update option on the menu and Vol+/Power does Nothing. Cheers :-)

Installed today on my TMV. Worked great, no unexpected problem there. The front camera was disabled as expected. Had to return to F'N'C though, since no CM7 ROM can run the few 3D games I like (NFS Shift for example) while F'N'C runs them just fine. But this is not a problem with this particular ROM - it is something with the Cyanogen as there was the same problem on my previous phone - the Blade.

Anyway - thanks for your hard work, Dazz!

Always look at the third post in this thread, it will have the data of each update along with a changelog.

06/05/2012 - R1

Fixed multitouch
Added new EGL libs for better performance
A month has passed - plenty of improvements in upstream CM 7.2

I noticed that when the call ends screen is still off, and if I want to end the call I need to turn the screen on.

There's an option in CM to have the power button end call. Not ideal but it's a workaround.
