    to all those interested, 13th angel added a flashable zip sensors fix :) it's in page 34 of his rootzwiki thread posted in the OP. this may be the tipping point for me to try this :D thanks to all the hard workers!

    So how's battery life on this compared to stock when used carefully? Most of the time I actually leave mine in airplane mode and work offline. And what would cause the battery life to be so much worse with CM?

    @sb56637 i'm not sure, i haven't flashed this yet, but when i get off work tonight i very well may try it :) i'm loving the battery life with hexen and i'm not quite ready for a decrease but it might be a worthy trade off for better features found within cm7

    Yep, same here.

    At any rate, I hope they'll get this worked out. And I'm really happy to see this great development for the D2G.

    Just flashed the sensor zip file and it works great. Keep up the great work.

    After my first night running cm7 on my d2g my battery drained 40% overnight with no use. I installed set cpu with a few profiles yesterday but didn't get to test it overnight because I wasn't at full charge. I will make sure I do that tonight.

    I did use my phone moderately yesterday though and when I went to bed around 3AM my battery was at 30%. It was dead when I got up around 9:30 this morning. When I rebooted and checked my battery usage it was on 16h 20m

    I'm gonna pay closer attention today and see how the battery does, as well as see how much it drains overnight from a full charge tonight.

    Hmmm, ok. For comparison, with HeXen my phone loses less than 10% overnight with only the phone enabled.

    My battery life has seemed to improve after using cm for a few days, but not by much. Before I was getting about 12-14 hours under normal use, now I'm getting about 20 hours.

    Also, I noticed in the camera app that when I quickly switch to the camcorder then back to the camera, the camera becomes normal, as in un-mirrored! That's great, now we just gotta get it to be un-mirrored when we open the camera app.

    Can't seem to boot into recovery mode after I installed this. Anyone have this issue? It keeps on going into the little android with a box next to it after the "M" logo intro, then it gets stuck there.

    You'll probably get a random shutdown/reboot once in a while, that's what happens once in a while to me. Auto-brightness works, just kinda iffy if screen-on animation is on. Otherwise, watch your battery, and it's pretty good.

    As of now the only known issues are the phone being recognized as a d2 instead of a d2g, gsm doesn't work, the camera is inverted, and the alt lock key doesn't work.

    i have weird things happen to me on reboots.

    sometimes airplane mode breaks, reboot fixes.
    sometimes settings stick, most of the time i have to set them then reboot and set them again. this is most prevalent in cyanogen settings (which sometimes wont work at all. and guess what fixes that? reflashing the rom again. yay) but also happens with, well just about everything.
    reflashing can give me funky and inconsistent effects even though my method does not change. sometimes wifi breaks completely, sometimes no settings stick whatsoever, sometimes all is hunky dory (until the first shutdown/reboot), sometimes dsp force closes on a call and sometimes it doesnt. even with the sensors fix it may or may not work lol.
    and lastly, the battery drain issue. even in airplane mode and with the screen off, with nothing running at all, i managed to lose 15% battery in the space of 4 hours. on stock this would only be 3 or 4% for my entire work day! i guess thats the price of this rom..
    /edit/ i just lost 5% battery while reading through then typing this out in the space of 8 minutes. brightness is set to lowest....man what gives??? /edit

    this rom needs polishing but i will still keep it as my everyday. keep up the great work guys! i really appreciate bikedude and angels work!

    Thank You Kind Sir...

    Just wanted to say thank you man. I just recently got a D2G and last time I was on this site I remembered the ROM's were pretty slim pickin so I just used the stock crap for a while. Then I saw this post yesterday and installed it and I still have yet to notice any errors!

    What it needs is real D2G GB drivers because I suspect most of these issues are related to using Froyo and other unit files to get GB to work.

    And I don't dismiss the notion that our kernel could be very different than D2 and DX which is throwing errors into the system.

    We need to get our hands on the OTA or a leak of GB4D2G

    Perhaps it would have been better to use the 2nd Init trick to start from CM7 source as opposed to the DX tweaking of that source (which is what the D2 base we are using is based off of) to start the mix and match proccess.

    We just need to be patient. Biker and 13th are so close to getting it all worked out with little to no reference files to work with.
    Hell we don't even have a real Boot.Prop to work off of.

    I'll bet that is half the problem!

    Battery problems are really nonexistant for me, since I don't spend tons of time outside, too hot. Huge thanks to the CM4D2G team though for this.
    They(VZW) need to release their patched up gb already...And I mean D3 style, apparently fully functional gb. Then it's time to pull system, see if it dredges up anything interesting.

    Oh, and interestingly, the Fission weather widget works on CM. Didn't work on stock 2.4.330 build though for some reason.

    well the fact is I lose more battery in airplane mode now than when i did running fission and in a building with zero signal (no airplane mode). the phone doesnt get hot and the batt stats page doesnt show me anything to point out the problem but its aggravating. put your phone away with 30% left, pull it back out an hour later to answer one text and see that it dropped another 15.

    That would be a bug. It's getting worked on I believe.
