    Gracias pero una pregunta la verdad es que yo soy de los que andan cambiando de rom para tener las ultimas actualizaciones ¿no es esta acaso la ultima version de android que se puede conseguir en las tablets?¿quiere decir que esta debe ser la mejor rom?¿verdad? y otra cosa ¿por que entonces saiguen lanzando versiones de cyanogenmod 7 con android 2.3.6 o 2.3.7 si esta es la ultima para que sacar antiguas no entiendo o es que una version antigua es mejor que la ultima?
    porfavor contestame para pactualizarlo aunque de todas formas lo actualizo

      before you proceed please do a Nandaroid back-up,.. if you encounter an error you can easily restore to its original state,.. thanks for visiting,..

      hmm,. (the simple way) try to ask help from any of your family members to call your phone, while answering the call press the “home button” if it goes to your home screen you can disable your lock screen,. (the hard way) or you can do a Nandroid back-up and re-install your ROM again and wipe all it all,. if no problem occurs then proceed and reboot your phone to Clockworkmod recovery and select “back-up/restore” then “advance restore” then select “restore data, restore cache, restore sd-ext”, hopefully you will restore your files,. this is just an experiment WARNING: Do it at your own RISK (i have not done it before because i haven’t encounter it ),. if you follow this nothing will change if it turns out unsuccessful because you can restore it back to your previous ROM, apps and everything like it is untouched but the problem with the lock screen will restore also.. XD

      that’s not possible eran, after updating you must “reset it all/wipe it all” because CM7 and CM9 are not the same and they do not have the same system and all,..
