    Sucks, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. Hopefully some devs stick with it.

    CM7-Stable & Droid - CyanogenMod Forum


    "Most of the other devices are getting CM7.0.0 stable, which will naturally lead countless of you to ask 'where's CM7 for Droid?'..... well don't

    As it stands, the Droid still has lingering issues preventing us from releasing something we want labelled as 'Stable' (namely, tether, data and cam).

    Till those are fixed, there will not be a Stable Droid CM7.

    Please don't post new threads or bicker over why your device was left out. Droid support isn't dropped, its just your ROM simply isn't ready.":angry:

    Meh. CM 6 still meets my needs. If 7 was for the TB I may get one.

    Yeah, it just hurts cause I really like the feel of Motorola devices. OG Droid is the last development Droid. PreEncription. Froyo battery life is terrible when compared to Gingerbread.

    For the most part GB is working pretty good on the D1, the devs have made some major strides getting it to work on the limited memory available in our phones. Once the lingering issues are fixed it will be good, it's like anything else though, eventually the limitations of our phones will catch up to them.

    I have been running CM7 for a couple months and I find Winner's build to be stable and when Prime makes his custom CM7 based ROM it will be CM7-Droid for the masses.

    Truth? If so I couldn't care less about an official CM7 release.

    If not CM7, then what? GPA? FRG83G? What will we be content with on our phones?

    I can't stop going back to PE 4.2! Is there anything else out there for OG Droid!?

    GPA is great, but SS is awesome. Give Chevy01 a spin and I suspect you'll be pleasantly surprised how well the OG does.

    All this says is that it is not ready. You may now go and write for DL, there was no reason to title this as it was.

    Its running beautifully on my nook color. I'm sure the slight wait will be worth it.

    ive been running liquid for the last week and i gotta say its nice. no issues so far with normal use. I have noticed any gingerbread rom for og droid will run slow or buggy if your trying to use a large memory app (games). all in all performance is great.

    Earlier the article said to not look for a stable version for OG Droid due to bugs (3G data, and camcorder) that will prevent CM Team to label it (Stable)
    It went on to say that the development for D1 was going to be slow, and continue to get even slower.

    However, before I posted this thread the original thread was edited. What was edited is what I posted.

    It's sad the development is going to be slow. I believe we have all seen that in the last few weeks.

    everything points to cvpcs mainly working on getting CM7 to the DX waaaaayyy before working on OG Droid.

    I'm just speculating. That itself is sad enough for some of us.

    I see no changes from what I saw when it first was posted.

    In terms of who they have working on it it may be slow, so much so that if I want functioning GB I may go back to Pete's GPA builds, which are fantastic.

    that post was placed for a simple reason, to head off the inevitable "where is the sholes DL of CM7 release?" Nothing more, stuff is still being worked on.
