    Thanks Bassist. I appreciate that. Trying to get a working version out for the Galaxy Tab is a total pain in the......butt. I still have 6 compile errors that I CANT seem to get past, and its bugging the crap out of me. Ive asked Boushh over on XDA for some help, but have not gotten any reponses back yet. If anyone on here thinks they can help me, please let me know. If you can lend advice that will solve my issues and get me up and building successfully, I will gladly donate to you for your help!

    Got it! It does seem to be handling memory better. I'll let you know how things work out.

    Looks like Chrome to Phone is broken. Pushing app installs from the web Market works, though.

    Ok, after a few hours of playing with it, I've noticed these unfortunate things:

    1) Music cannot stay running while the browser is doing anything (big bummer!).

    2) Even after checking the appropriate box in settings, the home app is not anywhere near as memory persistent as it was before. A couple times now even just installing an app in Market caused it to be redrawn when going home. Thank heavens it redraws quickly!

    3) This makes me nervous about Google Talk's ability to remain in memory, as I rely on it extensively to communicate with certain important individuals (like my wife...heh).

    4) I already mentioned Chrome to Phone, which was working just fine in 6.3.3.

    That said, it is certainly snappy, and I love some of CM7's new additions: any suggestions as to which features in Steel Box will cause the most memory issues would be helpful (so far I've been tweaking the lockscreen mostly). Also, is there anything in "Performance" that will help memory management appreciably?

    Thanks!

    First time using steel Droid in a long time. Gotta say its the best rom out there. Only thing that's missing is the lock apps in memory option.. I use textfree and it keeps closing on me after playing angry birds.

    Actually there IS a lock apps in memory option. Its actually part of the Launcher.

    Open up the app drawer, and look at your tabs on the top. Go to Running, and click on the app you want to lock in memory. Of the options that pop up, hit LOCK. There you have it!

    This was one of the main reasons I switched to this Launcher.

    Can anyone else confirm? I personally didn't get any errors.

    Try copying or downloading again. Might just be corrupt.

    Trying to send contacts through bluetooth?

    I upgraded to this ROM, the performance is great. I am not able to transfer my phonebook contacts to my uconnect device. It will pair fine, but just will not send contacts. Any reason why?

    I did get this message when I was wiping cache partition. I installed 7.1 over 7.0 and only wiped cache. Everything seems to be working fine.
