Q: I just install CM7 to my Aria for the first time with no problem at all and im just wondering, where do i start to get Games, Apps such as Facebook ect… Because I no longer have the Android market place on my phone?

A: After installing CM7, you should also install the Google Apps separately. It’s listed at the bottom of the first post of the CM7 thread

Q: Is it possible to add more pages on the HTC home screen? they are 7 , is it possible to add 2 extra or more ??

A: No, not possible. Use a custom launcher if you want that – GoLauncher EX allows that. My experience shows that it doesn’t run smoothly when loaded with such an amount of screens.

Q: Will CM7 stable have native 720p on my Nexus?

A: you need to wait for cyanogen to add in the 720p code. it is enabled on cyanogen 6.1.1 obviously, but not yet on gingerbread version. it will come.

Q: meego will not flash via MAGDLR , but via something other?

A: Of course it will be flashable via MAGLDR, but only after team DFT have ported it. They have suspended dev on it until after the official code is complete and bugs removed, which should be around April time that we start to see dev going on again according to other info.
