CyanogenMod 7 for the Epic 4G :: V7.2.0-RC0 (26 December 2011)

1 post in this topic

I am very pleased to announce that the Samsung Epic 4G SPH-D700 is now officially a CyanogenMod-supported device.

Team EpicCM's github repositories have been merged into CyanogenMod's.

The first official build from this merge, V7.2.0-RC0, is now available.

Borrowing from Decad3nce's preamble:

CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.


#include <std_disclaimer.h>
* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

This is an AOSP-based build with extra contributions from many people which you can use without any type of Google applications. I found a link from some other project that can be used to restore the Google parts, which can be found below or elsewhere in the thread. I've still included the various hardware-specific code, which seems to be slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Visit the CHANGELOG for a full list of changes and features!


- First time flashing CM 7 to your Epic (or coming from another ROM)?

1. Unlock/root your device and install Clockwork Recovery

2. Do a Nandroid backup!


4. Install the ROM

5. Optionally install the Google Addon

- Upgrading from earlier CM7 or nightly build?

1. Do a Nandroid Backup!

2. Install the ROM (your Google apps will be backed up automatically)


- Was it a soft reboot or a "boot loop"? Run "adb logcat" and get me the full output.

- Pastebin links preferred

*Coming soon* Please visit the CyanogenMod Wiki for step-by-step installation walkthroughs and tons of other useful information.

We also now have an official subforum on the CyanogenMod forum site.

The current buglist:

WiFi Hotspot is broken. Third-party apps are known to work.

Charging notification LED does not light until full charge is reached


Other than those (relatively) minor bugs, this rom is nearing a somewhat completion.

New Changes

- WiFi appears to be stable. You may need to wipe old settings. (decad3nce, noobnl, uberpinguin)

- Official build


- Fixed bad cached download mounts (noobnl)

- Fixed overlay for video encoding/decoding (decad3nce & noobnl)

- Fixed e911(mkasick)

- MTD/yaffs2

- Wifi is still screwy

- Stage1/Stage2 inits

I recommend using the EI22 modem.

Please note flashing someone else's kernel may ruin your experience with this rom and I advise against it. This rom is a result of many tiring hours from Decad3nce, noobnl, jt1134, Uberpinguin, nubecoder, mkasick, nullghost, dameon78, wispofattes, DRockstar, and many many other contributors.
