View Full Version : CM7 Doesn't Vibrate For Gmail

09-07-2011, 03:03 PM
I had it working for the 8/30 GB release, but since I upgraded last night to the 9/2 version, it won't vibrate when I get a new email in Gmail. The phone vibrates fine when I get a call and when I get mail in Yahoo's mail app, so it's not the phone.

I have:

Settings - Sound - Silent mode: Checked and Vibrate: Always. There's no setting from within the Gmail app itself (at least in the way it seems to appear in CM7) to let me make adjustments.

What am I missing here? I'm wondering if I should just restore my backup from the 8/30 version.

Well, I got tired of trying to figure out the problem, so I flashed my recovery from the 8/30 version and voila, Gmail notification vibrations work.

Well for future reference do this for new gmail vibrate/ notifications

Open gmail
Hard menu button select more then settings
Select (press) your account * yourname@gmail.com
Go down to notifications
Select labels to notify and choose vibrate

Thanks, cory. Not sure why it worked on 8/30 and not 9/2 when I didn't even make that settings change to begin with. Glad to know where it is, though.
