  7. still the only bug i've seen is that you cannot manually set the max and min freq in performance>cpu settings . I guess you need no-frills for that.

    performance = check

    :D

  10. What about  a compare and contrast with the custom roms of mebitek and squadzone? that would be very useful.. maybe a quadrant results on all of them using the same phone, programs, and settings? A chart would be very very welcomed i think, with bugs, fixes, tweaks, etc..

  11. Sorry, to say I don't use mebitek rom and so can't tell about it. However, as I said above I would go with squad's CM7. Though it's not a big deal, I just love soft buttons and status bar battery display which are seem to be missing in this official CM7. However, if you are not looking for many tweaks and stable rom then this is good. And from what I have heard about mebitek roms, they are both the same. This being official and quite stable you can go with this one. I too think mebitek will drop his builds now that official vanilla (without changes) CM7 is out.

  12.  mebitekis better than squadzone. It does not have too many extra features that you never use. Quite stable. Recently mebitek has released the latest version which is built from scratch and CM verrsion updated to RC1.

  19. There will be further update... It's almost same as squad but only features that are fully compatible and working are been put into it and released. Features from later version will also be available when CM team thinks that they are stable.

    Market is not available in every CM7. Read my article on how to install google apps to find out why it is so and how to get these apps.

  22. No, you can't flash this on your pop plus GT-S5570i. Both device has different architecture. And, since there is no any custom rom for gt-s5570i as of now, you'll either need to wait till one is developed or make one for yourself.
