Cm7 vs Cm9
Posted 06 April 2012 - 01:27 AM
Apologies for starting a new topic, but I havn't seen any posts comparing cm7 vs cm9.
My GF is currently running CM7 Alpha3.5, and I just wonder if there are any improvements in terms of stability if she upgrades to the latest cm9.
The main problem we have with cm7 is sometimes the wifi won't connect to a wifi hotspot. The wifi gets stuck in an endless connecting,disconnecting loop and the only way to connect to wifi at this point is to reboot the tablet. This is only an occasional problem, I don't seem to encounter this problem much, but she frequently gets stuck with this problem.

if not go with cm9
cm7(gingerbread) is not meant for tablet..
I have cm9 alpha 2 on mine and it's so much better
personally, I don't have any wifi issue, but some people does

As documented, the camera doesn't work. Everything else has been faster and more stable than in CM7. In CM7 I regularly had to reset wifi to get a connection, to the point where I kept a wifi toggle widget on my home screen; I've yet to have a similar problem with CM9. I wish I'd upgraded sooner.
No question in my mind, go with CM9.

I am using cm7 3.5 tenderloin and love it (have learned to work around most bugs)
The only 2 issues that I really wish I didn't have are the mic issue that makes voice commands impossible, and not being able to use the camera.
Now i'm reading that others can use the camera on touchpads running 7 and i have to find out whats up.
My camera will come on briefly & i see an image but I cant do anything because it crashes and forces close, then it isnt available at all until reboot.
I have tried several camera apps and it's always the same. Camera does work in web os, so it's not my hardware.
I thought everyone had this prob & now i'm wondering if there is something i can do about it... ANY info u kind souls can give me would REALLY be appreciated

One caveat, everyone's milage will vary. There is always the ocassional person that has problems that no one can explain, so be sure to make a backup and you can always go back if you are not happy.
