    The topic of the thread says it all. I'm running Gingerbread and I really wanna give CM7 a try, but not if I have to SBF back to Froyo to do it.

    That's the only way you can try it - requires Froyo base before installing. Sorry...

    It's definitely worth SBFing back for. I don't believe any rom gingerbread or froyo will come close once stable builds are released.

    Just do it. You won't regret it. Just a simple sbf and you are on your way to the best rom available IMO.

    As tempting as it sounds, I'd rather wait until one is available for gingberbread.

    It won't be...the exploit that allows CM on D2 requires Froyo kernel. So you either use it from Froyo base, or you stick w/the GB ROMs. That's the way it is/will be.

    CM is a GB ROM, it just requires a Froyo kernel to boot.

    Redflea is absolutely right and couldn't have said it any better. Even though it's running off the froyo kernel it's speedier than any other moto gb based rom. ALL Cyanogenmod 7 roms are pure gingerbread and pure asop google so that basically means no blur in the original rom unless you add a few things back from blur. Without a single hint of Blur my phone is the most beastiest it has ever been.

    I enjoyed Squidlyrom, Apex and Liberty and to be honest I always yearned for some Cm goodness even though Liberty had a lot of cm apps in the rom before the liberty gb nightlies it just wasn't the same. Now that all the great devs did the impossible and got CM for our locked phones I love my phone instead of just being content with it. Even without custom kernals CM4D2 is beyond my expectations and continues to get better nigthly.

    I had stock Froyo, Liberty Froyo, the leaked GB and Liberty GB and I while they all worked ok (well stock froyo froze and rebooted itself occasionally), I was still looking forward to my upgrade date in August.

    I've had CM7 for less than a week and not only am I no longer looking forward to upgrading, I'm thinking "No way I'm giving up this phone!". And no way I'm EVER going back to a bloated, blurred stock experience.

    CM7 isn't just a little better, it's a whole LOT better.

    I finally took the plunge last night, and wow! Here I was waiting for a gingerbread version, when in fact, it IS gingerbread, 2.3.4 to be exact! I absolutely love this ROM! Droid 2 owners were missing out before this came along!

    Battery has been iffy... some people have had great battery life, others not so much. I've had a little of both myself. It'll be interesting to see what you guys experience.

    I like this ROM, but I just noticed that I can't tweet via text message or receive tweets to which I'm subscribed via text message. Any idea what may be causing that?

    I haven't tried tweeting via text, but I have had no problem receiving tweets that I'm subscribed to via text. I get like 100 each day from android_daily... although now that I look, I haven't gotten any since 2:14am, which is weird. Maybe it's a temporary issue with Twitter?

    Just started getting texts from Twitter again. I put in a ticket with their support after I posted here, so maybe they fixed it.

    My personal experience with the battery life was lackluster. Sitting idle overnite it drops 30% over 8 hours which isn't terrible but I only see a 10-20% drop on Liberty GBv0.8. I am assuming this come from the issues I hear about with the droid overclocker app.

    I actually got a response from Twitter:
    "We've been experiencing issues communicating with Verizon regarding our SMS service, and as a result you may experience some delay in being able to send and receive SMS messages to us. Our engineers are aware of this problem and are working on a solution. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. We appreciate your patience as we problem-solve!"

    The ticket is still "In Progress" so it may be a while before it's 100%.
