DrewGaren’s CyanMod 7 for DX

So I finally have a build ready for beta testing. It is not the final version of DG CyanogenMod 7 that I will be releasing but it is a stable build. There are no modifications to the build as of yet but in the future final release there will be. The build took for ever to make because it wasn’t properly working on my macs or linux in virtual machine. However, I used a linux box and worked fine.

What Works: I’m not going to list everything, because almost everything works.

What Doesn’t Work: Torch, Camera Currently (However I have fixed this in the next release), 2.3.4 GAPPS Market (Use 2.3.3 GAPPS),

Download beta 1 here

I will update my progress and builds throughout my latest news section, so stay tuned!

Kind of blatant isn't it? I guess he'll wait on the nightlies to fix the bugs.

Hmmm, interesting, wish I could say more, but my advice is to stay away, if you want full support for CM7 and for the real CM experience, follow no one by CM and cvpcs themselves, and only get updates/nighties from ROM Manager or from their own mirror network: CyanogenMod Mirror Network - Powered by TDRevolution (http://download.cyanogenmod.com/?device=cdma_shadow)

I thought the assumption was that many new ROMs would be based on CM7. Why does he get beat up for that?

I concur. Why would anyone want a hacked version when the official, supported version is free and updates regularly?

The funniest part is how he says he "compiled" it himself... And it only took him about a week. Didn't it take cvpcs like 9 months?

Lol cause this doesn't look like its based on CM7, this looks like it is CM7. Without credit given, I'm sure. And its not the first time he's done something like this

It's not a new ROM, he's passing it off as CM7... Not "based on CM7"

Without credit given, I'm sure.

The credit is in the name..... if he totally renamed it and called it his own, I would agree with the rest of you

I disagree. If I copied a painting and called it by the same name without stating that it isn't my painting, am I giving credit to the original painter?

Edit: his track record is to do what you stated though. One of his recent "ROMs" was almost a bit for bit copy of apex...or so I've read.

He changed the name enough to make it questionable. CyanMod7? Awfully close to CyanogenMod 7, but enough change to identify between the two.

This has been on his site for a few days now. I have neglected to comment on it because he has a few followers here who seem to be blind to the things he does.

I would compare it to opening up a chain of burger joints and calling it "McDonald's" and serve that same stuff. If it was never trademarked, sure, use it, but it still don't make its right to use the same name without giving credit where its due. And yes, it took CM months to create what they have now. The fact that he "de-compiled" it and then "re-compiled" don't mean he actually did anything. Made a few small minor changes to make it "his" and then pass it off and use the CM name to market it to get more downloads and traffic? He never posts in other forums for a reason.... I personally have never been a fan, and I will stop there.

I wouldn't. Even if it doesn't screw your phone up, it'll encourage him to keep doing it

That's the thing about his ROMs... They are decent. I'm sure the DG CM7 will be the same as the touted CM4DX RC0. He even states that the things that are broken are the same as the real deal...

And once cvpcs finds a fix for the major bugs, so will he, magically at the same time....

Since this is not a new ROM and we don't support piracy, I think its best we close this up before tjis gets worse.
