1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

In you guys' opinion, which version of CM7 is better and why?

    I've been using the official nightlies, but have been hearing good things about CM4D2-GB by Rev. Except for the battery life, I'm quite happy with the nightlies. Is Rev's new Beta build all it's cracked up to be? Besides not having the 1% battery increments, but fully functional bluetooth voice dialing and alleged better battery life, what's so different or better about it than the nightlies? And will the official nightlies have a beta version or release candidate any time soon?

    ^^^^x2 battery life seems to be right on par with liberty to me, and cm7gb is smooth.

    GB version is definitely better. Less bugs, better battery life, and it's faster/smoother.

    That's a problem with both versions, and it is not fixable because there is no way to map to that button in AOSP.

    As noted, alt-lock will never work in either ROM.

    CM7GB is where future development will focus, so I would recommend that ROM is the best bet for the long term.
