Thanks so much for the write-up, with all the GB leaks out and now the OTA this thread will definitely answer ALOT of questions!

Kurtislemaster - are you running FroYo or GB currently?

- if you're currently on FroYo then you can probably get away with just flashing maderstcok. If you aren't familiar with that file just Google "maderstcok" spell it just like I did its not a typo.

If you're on any flavor of GB im pretty sure you will have to SBF (i know P3 is working on an easier route but i havnt been on twitter to read anything about it). I saw a write up that might help you out. Stand by for links.

E D I T .
alright I'm back with links.

Check this out, I haven't used it personally but have heard alot of good things.

If that doesn't work for you, this is the guide that finally taught me to SBF.

And just in case here's a link to a writeup on "maderstcok"
http://roooler.com/how-to-use-maderstcok-sbf-zip-file/

At the end of the day bro whether they put together an easier way to install CM without SBF or not, its almost (if not 100%) necessary to know how to perform a successful SBF when you're modifying you're phone at this level.

Hope I helped!

If we're SBF'ing back to Froyo, are we staying there for CM4DX?

Or am I missing some clever jiggery-pokery in the install that'll take us back to GB?
CM7 is Gingerbread, despite being SBF'd to Froyo. I'm not quite sure all the nitty-gritty that gets it to work, but it does. .32 branch kernel and everything!

Nevermind, got it to work, just needed to wipe data and cache.. WOOT! CM7 ROCKS!
wipe data/cache/dalvik before installing any rom or youll likely bootloop
my preferred mthod is clockwork recovery -> wipe everything -> install something
(as long as youre at the proper install stage, youre done)
not necessary to wipe to flash a theme, i only wipe chache for that just to make sure
(afaik)

I tried activating my phone by calling *228 but that failed so I tried manually activating it. I dialed ##PROGRAM, or ##7764726, but it ends up calling that number instead of entering the service menu. Any ideas?

Try a wipe and see if that works...sucks but may help.

i'm wondering if full updated files will be posted or if fixes will be add-ons.
since i'm waiting for bugs to be worked out, i'd prefer one inclusive file instead of many.
anybody know?
Once cvpcs gets it ready...I'm sure he'll release it in RC and then Stable.
