    Huh, weird. It worked without fail on my d2g on some of the earlier builds of cm7. It's hit and miss now. I re-installed it earlier and just checked it and it's still working as of right now.

    I've been sticking with the 8-2 nightly build because the last two haven't seemed too stable compared to this one for me. Only on my initial flash of this before I rebooted in order to get a few settings/supercharger script to work did I ever have wi-fi working. So then I had to reflash everything to get data working, on the reboot the second time my data continued to work and I haven't gotten wi-fi working since.

    I'm okay with it, just figured I'd state my own story... I'm sure in a more stable release in the future it won't be an issue anymore, and I can live without it for now.

    Best Build so far

    is there a good nightly build that you guys have tried out and like the best? i am currently still on the 8-2 build and like it but still have some issues. my battery life it terrible compared to previous builds and my alt key on the physical key doesn't work. i am wondering if there is a certain build that you guys have tried that maybe addressed some of these issues. short and sweet, just want some feedback on what builds you found the best so far.

    Which alt key? Alt lock? That's been defunct, it's broken even on the normal D2. If it's the normal alt key, make sure it's not a hardware problem (i.e. broken while running blur). Make a backup and then do a clean install, see if it works after that. I'm on the 8-2 here as well, if you're curious. Stable and good battery life.

    Wi-fi still broken on 8-12... hmm. I do know that trying to use ZeppelinRox' 3G Speed Supercharger makes it so my data settings WILL NOT stick though, so no more trying to use that one...

    EDIT: Solved my previous problem: A jammed SIM card can cause Boot issues.

    Just in case it wasn't the SIM (although I am pretty sure) should I remove the Bootstrapper when I install CM7? I worry if I do a battery pull again, the phone will want to go to Bootstrap rather than regular recovery.

    just don't bootstrap it after you install CM7 and you should be fine. CM7 has its own CWM when you install it.

    Aw ****. I tried reflashing the 8/2 build and now my status bar is broken completely, and when I try and bring up the reboot menu the phone just does an automatic quick reboot and it fixes absolutely nothing. Only if I pull the battery and then try to bring up that menu can I get to recovery... my battery life with 8/12 sucked compared to 8/2. Reflashing 8/2 a second time did absolutely nothing.

    Going to see if flashing 8/12 again fixes it, and I might just have to deal with it from there until another build is made. If not... might I have to SBF? I've been clearing cache and dalvik cache every time I reflash a nightly...

    EDIT: Didn't see an 8/13 build was posted. Might have to try that regardless of how this reflashing of 8/12 works out.

    For me battery life is a lot better, I can go through a whole day without charging, saved me $50+ since I don't need to buy the extended battery from verizon.

    Wonder if a gb kernel would make a difference then. I believe D2/DX are getting their respective gingerbread kernels, which may possibly help battery life.

    Things were fixed with the 8/12 build, but I'm running on 8/13 now... hopefully after recalibrating my battery once I hit a full charge then I'll be able to see if this is any better. Shame that it doesn't seem I'd be able to get back to 8/2 without SBFing, or maybe 8/12 and 8/2 just didn't agree for whatever reason... Odd. I'll play with 8/13 and see if I have any issues. Wi-fi is still broken for me.
