    Ok just flashed my Moto Droid 1 to CM 7 RC2. Never used Cyanogen before so I'm still trying to find where it hides things.

    Did a search here and did not find it. My clock in the notification bar doesn't display AM or PM. Is there a setting somewhere to enable that? Or is that a function of themes?

    Thanks

    This is a change in Gingerbread itself. Not really sure why this was removed but that's how it is. Not sure if your able to get it back other than going back to Froyo.

    Well that's dumb. I'll have to see if Google's bug tracker has an open ticket on this.

    I didn't notice this til you mentioned it. I prefer to have the A.M. / P.M. listed but I've been using GB ROMs for a while now and not noticed it, so I guess it isn't that much of a problem for me. Maybe we can get it back easily in the near future.

    Alternatively,

    Menu > Settings > Date & Time > Check Use 24-hour format

    I know it isn't what you wanted but I figured I'd offer the suggestion as it is just as good as A.M. and P.M.

    I noticed it when I first flashed it but it's not a big deal to me. I know when it's am and pm lol all I need is the time.

    Not if your not used to 24 hour time keeping. Never was in the military nor in Europe. I really don't want to have to stop and figure out the correct time in my head. :)

    I added a patch that makes the AM/PM configurable, it may or may not merge before the official CM7 is released. (Which means you can have Eclair's AM/PM, Froyo's AM/PM, or Gingerbread's lack of one).

    The only reason why I believe it was removed is to save space in the bar for notifications/alerts. Seems unnecessary to put am/pm when it is obvious when its night and day.

    I have cyanogen 7 and I have AM/PM in the notification bar, but I don't want them. The Menu > Settings > Date & Time > Check Use 24-hour format is not working. Can someone tell me how to use the 24-hour format?
