Well, can’t wait for the much awaited CyanogenMod 7 nightlies? Courtesy to guys at XDA, here is an Android App & an AutoIT script for windows which checks whether the nightly has been posted at CM7 site under the device name cooper or not.

So choose any of the method below so that you’re first to know about the nightly.

Note: The script & the executable is only for windows users (or through Wine on Linux)

$refreshTime = 300000 ;interval to check for cooper nightly in ms

while 1
	InetGet("http://download.cyanogenmod.com/?type=nightly", @ScriptDir & "\cmnightlypage")
	$file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\cmnightlypage", 0)
	$html = FileRead(@ScriptDir & "\cmnightlypage")
	FileClose($file)

	If StringInStr($html, "device=cooper&type=nightly") > 0 Then
		FileDelete( @ScriptDir & "\cmnightlypage")
		MsgBox(64, "Nightly available.", "Cooper has been added to nightlies!")
		Exit
	Else
		FileDelete( @ScriptDir & "\cmnightlypage")

Official CyanogenMod 7.2 Confirmed for Samsung Galaxy Ace

UPDATE: CM7.2 official is confirmed for Samsung Galaxy Ace & will roll out with the official 7.2 of all devices. More info

Why no nightlies?
Due to insufficient computing power available, the nightlies haven’t rolled out for SGA.

What about CM9?
If Samsung doesn’t rolls out ICS for Ace, it will be nearly impossible for an official CM9.

ORIGINAL:
Samsung Galaxy Ace has finally pulled it together. Expect official CyanogenMod Nightlies soon at the official website. No more betas by XDA devs. When all the bugs in nightlies will be sorted out, an RC version will follow and then a stable one.

More Information: http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#change,7133

New nightly build for download will be available  here as device name ‘Cooper’ (Within a week maybe): http://download.cyanogenmod.com/?type=nightly

So keep a little more patience. We will keep you updated.

How to Overclock Samsung Galaxy Ace

Custom kernels are Hi-fi stuff. They unlock awesome features on your phone. We previously showed you how to flash the CF-Root Custom Kernel on Ace with BLN & Swap support. Today its time for overclock.

For overclock/underclock capabilities, you need to have a custom kernel that supports it. Thanks to the efforts of ketut.kumajaya , this is now possible on Samsung Galaxy Ace.

For now this will only work on the cyanogenmod 7 builds only . Refer here.

Instructions:

  1. Install cyanogenmod7 build if not already on it.
  2. Download the overclock kernel “cm-7.1-oc-kernel-2.6.35.7-perf-CL562111.zip”
  3. Flash it using the CWM recovery.
  4. Reboot & goto CM7 settings. Or use the SetCPU app for overclocking.

People are reporting 864,883 & even 940 MHz options as stable. Phone instantly reboots above those. It is not recommended to use too high a value. You will need to experiment for a stable value. Start from 800 and and go 1 level above at a time. Test for about half an hour atleast.

An undervolt module is yet not made for Ace. Till then be happy with whatever extra Hz you are getting.
