    Do we have a consensus on which ROM is best for the BB Dual Camera S7? I'm currently running the V100R001C68B111(Brazil Commex) ROM so I can use Netflix. I'm not aware of any issues with this ROM. Thoughts?

    I've tried various ROM's, and each have their positives and negatives.
    I am currently using tri_zet's Slim mod ROM on my BB S7-104. I like it a lot.
    The Brazil ROM was OK for the Netflix ability, but it reported that
    my SIM was INVALIDO on the screensaver screen. Annoying, cause the phone worked.
    I like Joenilan's Froyofusion ROM, but am being patient for his next release.

    On another note, I would like to express my appreciation for those techno-wizards
    out there doing all the HARD WORK!! I think they all need our support and thanks.

    No netflix, but I was on the free trial anyway, so no big loss.
    The user interface and everything else functioning well are
    worth it.

    I flashed FroyoFusion this morning and like it - seems very stable :)

    Anyone know if there's a stable CM7 out there for the S7 :confused:

    I'm running the Brazilian ROM, and same issue as dgnyberg - "Invalido" on the SIM card, and if you tap the icon on the signal bars, the little window comes up blank (in the original 2.1 and Indo ROM, it would say "AT&T"). However, the phone & data work OK. Netflix worked before I came to China, but right now you can't stream Netflix here because of (I guess) licensing issues. It will be nice to be back in the USA!
    Other than that, no problems so far. I haven't noticed any change in battery life with any of the ROMs I've tried (Indonesian, Norwegian, and Brazilian). I'm stumped as to why Huawei has not been able to release a US ROM of 2.2 - it just seems very odd..

    I'm using Norway modded with S7 Slim framework. works great!

    I also tried JN's FroyoFusion but there's a slight incompatibility with Skype. I liked the S7 slim ui of FroyoFusion (from tri_zet's mod), so I flashed to stock norway 2.2.2, then shoved the slim apps and framework into it.
