This thread is reserved for nightly builds of CyanogenMod Rom for Samsung Fascinate.

All Samsung Roms run on top of BML/RFS, CyanogenMod 7 does NOT.

It runs on MTD/yaffs2 (like Nexus One) which means you'll not able to flash just any kernel or run just any other filesystem you want. Use it as it is if possible, otherwise confirm with the kernel developer that you are trying to install whether it would work with CM. We do not support other kernels and know nothing about their capabilities or compatibility. Only the data partition, which is on movinand, is ext4 like on speedmod or voodoo ("lagfix"). No "lagfix" is necessary because this does not use any Samsung proprietary file systems.

CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.

<br />
** These CyanogenMod builds are highly experimental and unsupported.<br />
**<br />
** Please refrain from submitting bug reports for any issues<br />
** you may encounter while running one of these builds.<br />
**<br />
** Submitting bug reports on nightly builds is the leading <br />

What are Nightly builds? Auto compiled build of the latest CyanogenMod source from github. This version changes each night and aren't officially supported.
If you find bugs/issues you can/must discuss here (do not submit nightlies bugs on CyanogenMod issue tracker).

Warning : Not for new users, flash this build only if you know what you are doing!!! Make SURE you can get into Download mode using only buttons (no other method, Download mode from just buttons is essential).


Latest version: (for when nightlies are working normally)
Check the md5sum if you want to be sure that the download worked (different OSes have different programs that do md5, on ubuntu it is md5sum that you run against the zip you download and compare to the md5sum number shown on the download website). ROMManager does this automatically for ROMs you download via ROMManager.

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

  1. Start with a rooted device (do not ask us how to do this).
  2. Flash ClockworkMod Recovery linked at the bottom of this post.
  3. Download and push the ROM zip file to the sdcard.
  4. Reboot into recovery.
  5. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  6. Wipe Data! Seriously! Do it!
  7. Install the ROM zip from sdcard
  8. Install gapps package linked below.

- Upgrading from earlier CM7?

ROM Manager method:
  1. Install ROMManager Premium.
  2. Flash ClockworkMod Recovery. Pick Fascinate (MTD). Then pick ClockwordMod 3.x.
  3. Choose Download ROMs.
  4. Pick the CyanogenMod Nightlies.
  5. Check the Google Apps addon.
  6. Check Backup current ROM!
  7. Check wipe cache, dalvik cache.
  8. Let ROMManager finish the installation.

Clockwork Mod method:

  1. Download and push the ROM zip file to the sdcard.
  2. Reboot into recovery.
  3. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  4. Install the ROM zip from sdcard (your Google apps will be backed up automatically)

There are no Google Apps bundled with CM ROMs, because Google asked Cyanogen to remove copyrighted apps. After flashing the rom, don't forget to flash Google Addon package if you want it. ROM Manager will allow you to flash it if you just go into it and after flashing the ClockworkMod recovery for Fascinate (MTD), choose Download ROMs, and pick Google Apps. Or download and push the gapps zip for CM7 from to the sdcard and flash it via ClockworkMod recovery.

- Going to another ROM from CM7?

You must flash a full Odin package with PIT, and make sure to check "repartition". This will convert your filesystems back to BML/RFS. You will now need to re-root your device, install recovery, etc to flash other ROMs. Do not ask here how to do this.

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

Any bugs pertaining to my original builds (low in-call volume, etc) are not going to magically be fixed just because nightly builds are being done. ALL NIGHTLY BUILDS MEANS IS YOU GET A NEW BUILD EVERY NIGHT. No hardware specific issues are magically fixed by this. Also, I am not planning on messing with any volume related issues until we have GB kernel source code. DON'T ASK. I CANNOT POSSIBLY EXPRESS HOW ANNOYING IT IS TO SEE IT ASKED EVERY OTHER POST.

Also, only kernels built from the official source tree will be included in these builds. Only minor differences because of this, such as BLN and dock audio will not function. I plan on making some custom kernels with these features and other changes soon.


If you would like to dig into the code, you may find information on the CM wiki here:

Kernel source is available here:

If you do your own builds, PLEASE do not post them in this thread, and do not discuss them here. These threads get cluttered enough as is, please don't add extra confusion for me to dig through. No one is discouraged from building or sharing their builds, please do so in another thread/forum/whatever. Thanks.

2 Things.
1. What is the likelihood that mesmerize will get this soon?
2. Android 2.3.5 you say in the first post... I've not heard of anything higher than 2.3.4... is this new and just hasn't been talked about on the internet yet or just a typo?

So... no bug reports at all? Everyone pretty much knows what's going wrong? Just curious about where to post or whether not to post. On the 7/28 build I have phantom ring back and of course the signal bars (as well as the signal text readout) aren't working. Idk if I'm supposed to post that, I'll shut up if not. Also my battery life has been abysmal with this kernel and build, I'll try flashing the Glitch kernel (personal fave) today to see if it helps. I'm talking 3 hours off the charger just sitting there on WiFi and I lost 30% battery. Not even using it? Yeesh... this is also a completely fresh install over stock EB01. Should I try upgrading to EC09? Idk... ha. Just having fun flashing the nightlies of anything again. :D Thanks guys!

What is the latest stable build with everything working?? 7/17? Thanks!
Nailed it.

CM7: 7/17 (i think?)
MIUI: 7/22 (though imo, 7/15 works better.)

Thanks for updating rootz with this, jt... Xda is just such a whiney little ***** lately.. ;-)
