CyanogenMod 7 for the HTC Incredible :: V7.1.0 (9 Oct 2011)


Credits/Thanks


All credit goes to Cyanogen and the rest of the CM team, and especially our HTC Incredible maintainers, as listed by the CyanogenMod site: jistone (aka CUViper/This Guy), slayher, and of course, koush, as well as the authors of the respective open commits.

Why a new the thread? The build bot has retired (as far as CM7 nightlys are concerned), and the current thread at [ROM] CM7.2 Nightlies for the Droid Incredible was designed with the official nightlys in mind. It has since deviated from that original aim, and to keep it from going off topic any further, I have created this thread.

For some reason, I have received several requests to put a donation link in my profile. You can always donate to the CyanogenMod project, but if you feel you HAVE to donate to me, I've put a link in my profile, and all donations will go towards upgrading my computer, so I can stay on top of this for CM9.

Changelog
In case you missed it the first time.


Known Issues/Bugs
Per slayher: "Sometimes things are going to break, sometimes features are going to be removed, then added, then removed, then added back."
Just because it works in one build, doesn't mean it's going to work in the next.

[*]TV-Out doesn't work on CM7 or any AOSP ROM
[*]720P video recording
[*]Theme Chooser causing WL widgets to disappear



FAQ

Q: What's the ETA on....about how long till...when can I expect....?
A:
The only rule of CyanogenMod: You don't ask for ETAs.


Q: Now that the Ice Cream Sandwich SDK has dropped, we're getting a port, right?!
A:
Take a look at this PSA by Keyan Mobil


Q: What's this CM7.2, Android 2.3.7 business?
A:
The kangs are built towards CM7.2, which is Android 2.3.7.


Q: How do I install a CM7.2 kang, coming from non-CM7?
A:
The safest (definitely not the only, but my preferred) way is
  • Download kang from link
  • Reboot into recovery.
  • Make a backup/nandroid (to be safe)
  • Format system and boot under mounts
  • Wipe Data/Factory reset
  • Install zip from SDCard
  • Flash kang.
  • Flash Gapps (if this is your first time flashing a kang/CM7
  • Reboot
  • Enjoy
If any of you have data that you must absolutely save, then and only then should you use Titanium backup (or other backup apps) to restore your data. Please be sure not to restore any data to /system using these apps, as this will mostly likely corrupt your ROM.


Q: How do I update/flash these kangs?
A:
The safest (definitely not the only, but my personal) way is

  • Download kang from link
  • Reboot into recovery.
  • Make a backup/nandroid (to be safe)
  • Wipe Cache
  • Wipe Dalvik
  • Install zip from SDCard
  • Flash kang.
  • Reboot
  • Enjoy
Q: How about that 720P? I hear it's handy.
A: Per slayher,
"720P recording will not be coming to CM7 at this time. We *MAY* see it later if we get an HTC GB leak, using an MSM device (aka not omap). But for now, if you HAVE to have 720P recording, stick with CM6. The issue is that GB uses stagefright, and the hack it took to get 720p in CM6 wont work with stagefright. (it was done in opencore.) This is why we cant get it. The current driver implementation we have to work with is just not capable. So there you go, you can stop wondering/asking/hoping."

Q: How about CWM3/5? I'm having a problem where....
A:
Try deleting the current recovery first.

Q: How do I fix the space error that pops up when I try to install some apps?
A: Per slayher,
"If you get a Space error trying to install apps, just try installing again. I have encountered this error also and it is not related to actual free space, (unless you have a cubic crap ton (crapton * crapton * crapton) of apps installed)."

Q: How do I disable the shutter sound?
A: Per mattyg151,
"I used root explorer to rename /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg to camera_click!.ogg ... no more camera shutter sound."
There is also an option at Menu > Settings > CyanogenMod setting > Sound > Mute camera shutter

Q: How do I increase the WiFi scan time to save battery life?
A: Per karnovaran,
"One way to reduce battery drain is to increase the WiFi scan interval. It's set to 45 seconds, meaning it will scan every 45 seconds. If you change it to something like 90, obviously it will scan less often and use less battery. To do this, you have to edit the build.prop file in /system. The easiest way is with Root Explorer. Go to /system, mount r/w, open the build.prop in text editor and locate "wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=45" Change that value to 90 or whatever you want. Save the file, mount back to r/o, and reboot."

Q: Those automatic brightness settings are confusing. Anyone know of a good setting/rough guide?
A:
This thread looks useful. So does this post

Q: How does that brightness slider thingey-majib work?
A: Per byrong
"For those of you trying to figure out the new brightness-adjust-via-statusbar feature, do the following:
1. Settings > CM Settings > Interface > Status Bar Tweaks > StatusBar brightness (I'm guessing you guys already figured this part out)
2. Here's the trick: place your finger on the status bar, but don't drag it down. It will still 'peek' out some, but now you'll want to slowly drag your finger to the left or right while keeping it on the status bar itself. If you drag left, the screen will get darker; right for bright."

Q: I can't send no fancy mms picture messages!
A: Change you APN settings manually, (a popular way is to use GoSMS).
MMSC: http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms
MMS proxy: leave empty
MMS port: 80


Any more I should add? Let me know.

Due to previously explained computer issues, haven't been able to do these for awhile. Finally got a chance to push this out. Check the OP for changelog and download locations. Before anyone asks, no I'm not working on CM9/10 yet. I will probably skip 9, and the inc looks like it already has good support for both CM9 and 10, so it's not a high priority for me right now.

I haven't personally tested this build yet, so have a nandroid and post any issues.
