    I followed prepaidguy9081 post: guide to root, cm7.1, app2sd, and vm heap your Precedent with wifi tether
    somewhat and finally have an amazing phone!!!  Here's what I did:

    - I already had all the files and such on my SD Card from previous attemps...
    - Installed CM7 like the directions say
    - Rebooted
    - Then within a few minutes booted back into recovery (after disabling boot animation for faster boot )
    - Wiped Cache Partition & Dalvik Cache
    - Installed Kato Kernal which allowed me to overclock to 900Mhz
    ( I haven't tried to go further, but don't need to, this setup is SMOOTH!!! )
    - Rebooted back into CM7
    - Opened Google Play, setup my login and such then waited for it to update
    - Downloaded multiple apps including: ES File Explorer, Voltage Control, TSF Shell along w/ Luckypatcher ;) Touchpal Keyboard, Sense Analog Clock, and a few others of preference...
    - First I installed TSF Shell along w/ ""
    - Then I set that as my Default Launcher
    - Then I did the  build.prop file steps...
    - Then installed the rest of the apps.

    I didn't change any major settings in ADW or Cyanogen.

    !!!Oh... I also booted back into Recovery and made a backup!!!

    This is the best thing I've done to this phone yet, EVERYTHING works & it works while looking AMAZING & SMOOTH as butter... It's seriously like a brand new phone!

    Thought I'd pass this along in case there was anyone out there who has been trying and trying to find the best solution for this piece of junk, well now I guess it's not a piece of junk!

    Oh... is there a built in screenshot program with CM7?




    When you install a new app it's hard to miss!

    Looks like an iPhone wannabe.
    What's with all the clutter?
    Seriously..a 3.2 inch screen isn't the best way to show off TFS shell.
    I'm sticking with arearom.I've always been kinda meh about cyanogen.

    Like I said, just throwing it out there... There are TONS of different Themes... I have had issues with CM7 being unstable, but not anymore!

    Cm 7.1 is stable. 3+ months same flash. No issues. [And arearom gave me minor bugs like opening contacts when headphones were removed n other random oddities]

    Please run a rom before you post about its stability.

    the arearom mod is built from the ground up for my phone.cyanogen is not.its a port of a mod built for other phones made to work on the precedent.in my view ill take my chances with arearom.

    Idc about your views on the rom
    I do care about post discusing negative stability of a stable rom. Facts should be posted. Not opinions.

    [Unless ofcourse the thread is about an opinion like your favoret theme]

    So did you get the Kato kernel from the Maverick CM9 download? (if not, can you post it?)

    ***UPDATE*** Battery draining quicker than usual???  I ran Battery Calibrator and it's still draining... I'll have to work on that or just plug it in more often, either way I don't care because it's worth having an awesome phone even if the battery life is shorter.

    I have short batt life without kato. Use cpu tuner n drop ur screen off n in call ext speeds and voltage.

    But keep it in preformance mode. On demand stutters.

    I have been running Cm7 with the kato from MokeeOS for about 4-5 months now.  It does run great and I dont even use the overclocking. I keep it at 800 and it runs smooth. I do use the smartassv2 gov though. My battery life is about 8-10 hours under normal use. I did not flash my kernel after install though. I installed MokeeOS and then restored a CWM   backup of a prevoius CM7 install I did earlier. Maybe this method would fix your battery problems and also give you a few more govenor options.

    UPDATE...  Today my battery did awesome... I unplugged my phone about 7am and had light use on it until I got home around 5:00pm and still had 60% battery life!  Then I used it heavily for about an hour and it went down to around 30%  Must have been because I just ran the battery calibration???  In any case, it's good to go for now.  I did turn off advanced task killer as well, maybe that had something to do with it???

    A phone that already has terrible battery life..lets put a ram intensive rom on it and run a 3D launcher.yeah that sounds legit.or you could just buy a decent phone and skip all the mods.

    Skip the mods? Sounds like something you would hear an Apple store employee say......

    agreed
    i think that next launcher may be better than tsf shell
    but what this man has done is in my opinion a very beautiful and sexy thing even if it is on a small screen
    besides, its not the size that counts...its how you use it
