First of all congratulations for installing Cyanogen Mod 7 on your motorola defy, after installing Cyanogenmod you will find a totally new experience and settings as compared to Motorola stock froyo. I have describe in my previous post how to install Cyanogenmod 7 on your defy. Now in this post I will tell you many tweaks and new features of Cyanogenmod 7.
Where is the network of defy– After installing Cyanogenmod 7 you find that your mobile not detecting your cellular network, actually this Cyanogenmod 7 Rom is designed for universal use for any country for your country/region you have to select your baseband using baseband switcher tool. In Cyanogenmod 7.2 it is already inbuilt but if you are using Cyanogenmod 7.1 stable you have to install defy baseband switcher tool that is described in my previous post.
This is an apps you can use this app using app drawer and select your country , may be one reboot is required to establish the network. In Cyanogenmod 7.2 it is available under the settings/device settings/other settings/ baseband selection and select your region.
How to overclock and change the performance settings-
In Cyanogenmod 7 you don’t need any extra apps like setvsel to overclock/underclock your processor settings and vsel settings you can do this by using cpu-settings under boot menu, reboot your mobile and select boot , at the time of boot your mobile automatically reached to boot menu now from boot menu select cpu-settings and change accordingly . Use volume key to up-down menu and power button to select your option now save and reboot your mobile.
How to improve battery life –
For battery life improvement charge your mobile to 100% and do not remove charger pin, now reboot your mobile to recovery mode and select advanced now wipe battery stat and reboot. Now install battery calibration apps from Google play store. When battery charged to 100% keep charger pin plugged in and calibrate your battery.
Now discharge your battery till it reached to 10% , on a single charge now charge it to 100%. Do this cycle at least two times and you will found very much improvement in your battery. Also choose your cpu governor as conservative, that is under the Cyanogenmod settings -> performance -> cpu settings .
You can also enable this option using cpu-settings that is under boot menu.
How improve GPS fix –
If you have copied your gps.conf file that is under /etc folder before installing Cyanogenmod 7 using root explorer you can again replace this file using root explorer. If you have not copied this file don’t worry also many froyo ROMs as like Indian froyo not having this file. So you need to install gps fix that is explained in my previous post.
You can also download this gps.conf file and replace it to your /etc folder, I am able to get an accuracy of 4mtr in google maps using this file.
