Yeah - some of the JV* builds over on XDA have them integrated in to the installer. I decided after reading Dorian's post this morning about CM7 to give that a try again and see what they've managed to do with it in the last couple weeks since I last used it. I just finished the flash process and am restoring apps now, so I'll give this a whirl for a day or two, unless Dorian puts out something shiny in the mean time.
So I redid the whole thing this time not apply CWM3 just the CWM2's.. And the camera works now.. However now I don't have a YouTube widget Cant uninstall YouTube as it is a system.. But also not integrated enough to allow me to add a YouTube account.
The update completed.. Results...
Music app - FC
Camera app- FC
Car home - ?
CWM 2 btw, yea, :/
I can confirm
Music app = FC for me as well
Camera App = Works fine for me
No Car app for me.. But I am pretty sure that has to do with some other build..
For the music player however I went to market and it didnt show it installed.. I did an install of music and it still forced closed.. went into applications and cleared data.. And still FC..
The only weird thing for me is that my data speeds on AT&T have gone to the dogs. I even flashed the same modems I normally cycle through, depending on where I am. I'm going to go in search of the MMI codes to access service mode, as the codes I've been using don't seem to work with CM7. Just looking to verify HSUPA and see what might be causing the slow down. Even at 10pm last night, I was getting 1500 down and 128 up. I haven't seen data speeds that slow in two years, since I was using my old Windows 6.5 HTC phone. Ugh.
About data speeds, try flashing the UGJK4 modem, because it comes with TLJL3 and that one doesn't work well for most places. UGJK4 is a speed demon... or at least it is for me.
Just to post it... here's my desktop...
Service Menu: on keypad/dialer enter *#*#4636#*#*
Edit - None of the traditional service codes seems to be working on my Captivate:
*#*#197328640#*#* service mode
*#197238640# service mode
Took me about three hours of scouring through different posts, and low and behold, it wasn't on this forum or XDA. Some lesser Android site. Oh well. I posted it to the CM7 thread over on XDA as well.
I don't have any pics without thumbnails - figured that one out about a month ago. Crazy little bugs - huh?
Yea... they are crazy. One question though, if you look under battery info, what is using most of your battery? Also, when you dial the help panel, when you refresh you msmc, do you have a number come up? Mine has been really bad about not having that number automatically pull from the network like it should.

Voice calls is the biggest battery killer for me at the moment. But then again, I manage my businesses off of the phone as many of my operations are outside of the State where I'm currently located. I'll update this later when I've had a better blend of usage time since my last charge.
