    So being an original Droid holder and lover of CM7/GB, what would you recommended? Patience or a roll back to CM6?
    On a side note, aside from the noted/known issues regarding menu button lights, accelerometer, and 3g drop, I have noticed several apps' widgets are not available to use. Removal and reinstall does not seem to help. PowerAMP is one such case. Any suggestions anyone? (D1/CM7#B11).

    I can't tell you how important the accelerometer is to you, or how bad the 3g drop is to you.

    But, about the widgets, are their corresponding apps installed to the SDcard? Apps on SD cannot have widgets.

    Just fyi, I plan on sticking with CM7. It'll already usable, and they will work out the kinks. CVPCS is on board, it'll definitely get done.

    Give,

    of this I am painfully aware. I say painfully as I think you and I are in agreement that we will likely see no "official" GB love from the powers to be. I think the ace-in-the-hole, so to speak is that CVPCS has been (or at least in the beginning) working closely with Koush and the entire CM development group. While I do not completely understand the inner workings of the entire CM efforts across all phone platforms, me thinks this is our best hope at getting GB at this time. That is a pretty large resource pool.

    But then what do I know. For all I know, Moto/VZW/Google could push GB to the Milestone, then we will be golden:)

    I believe compcache works on sapphire. It provided slight differences in speed and would bog down after a while and need a reboot last time I used it. I'm happy running 1.1ghz without compcache

    UNC,
    Thanks. Accelerometer is no show stopper for now. I will wait patiently and hopeful while I bask in the GB glory. Good tip on the SD apps. I hadn't thought about that one. One problem fixed already.
    CM team rocks!

    This is a great point. While most of the OS was just brought in from AOSP and compiled, there were proprietary files in every leaked Froyo build from Moto that were used, and there was no other way to get them. If (and I suspect this is the case) there is to be no update to Gingerbread for the Droid, this could prove very problematic.

    Brandon,

    Your results seem to be consistent with some folks who have gone the compcache route in 6.1.2 with Prime's fix. I have been using it for a long time now with only the lowest 18% setting, and to be honest I cannot say for certain it helps. It certainly is not hurting, as my phone never becomes sluggish. Although I do tend to reboot every couple of days at least, and I do clean my cache periodically. I think perhaps some of the need for it, screen redraws etc. from the early days have been resolved at the ap level (Launcher pro, ADW etc.), I still like having the option. But, as I posted earlier, I would expect it to be a very low priority. My guess is the accelerometer is pretty high on the priority list right now:)

    Running 8 at the moment, Swype refused to install back on 3 and I haven't tried since. Thankfully the Gingerbread keyboard is much friendlier! I have had a lot more lag and more redraws the last couple of builds, and the home button is very temperamental, although that seems to have improved slightly. The home screen lag is killing me, though. I have taken off all my widgets and I'm down to half a single page of shortcuts, and I still have five or ten seconds' lag almost every time. Did a full wipe for this one and going to try it again.

    I took off awd launcher and started using zeam. Man what a difference! Redraws are gone and feels faster.

    I did too and it did help. Now I see an update just came out for adw ex that is supposed to be gb friendly...we'll see.

    I've come to realize this rom doesn't like my restores much...Start from scratch and it likes things better.

    I did notice that, make sure notifications are turned on in settings, mine were turned off for some reason when I switched to GB.

    Yeah it's worked better for me so far..

    Looks like the Galaxy S power widget from sapphire is in review for CM7!

    ...me too...I didn't wipe though. I had a very clean minimal install and fully backed up.

    Mostly just random translations, visual improvement to music player, and a few calender fixes.

    ...don't know how the stock adw is doing, but adw ex even with the gb update (supposedly) keeps losing settings. Going with Zeam again for a bit to see how it goes...and so far it's great.
    I know it lacks features, but...

    Yeah, on Nightly #12 and things look good. ADW EX force closes for me a ton, Launcher Pro Plus is working smoothly.
