Version 7 of the Android world’s most popular custom ROM, CyanogenMod, has now received its first proper release candidates. This means that a final release of CM7 should be pretty close now. The new builds are feature-complete and have been pretty thoroughly tested, although they might have to do some further tweaking. Nonetheless, these release candidates of CyanogenMod 7 should definitely be stable enough for everyday use.
The team has worked hard on making CM7 compatible with many devices, and there are currently CyanogenMod 7 RCs available for the following Androids:
- Nexus One
- Nexus S
- HTC Aria
- HTC Evo
- HTC Slide
- HTC Desire Z / G2
- HTC myTouch 4G
CM7 comes with T-Mobile’s open-source theme engine and some new features such as a reworked and customizable lock screen, an overhauled music app, gesture support everywhere and “phone goggles”.
The latest CM7 builds can be downloaded with ROM Manager, or from the CyanogenMod experimental forums.
