CyanogenMod 7 Has Been Released

Posted by techhackz-admin Tuesday, April 19, 2011


In case you missed it CyanogenMod 7, one of our favorite AOSP Android ROM, has now been officially released for many Android devices (HTC EVO 4G, HTC Desire HD etc.). It brings among other things a stable release of Gingerbread (Android 2.3) with its wealth of improvements as well as WiMax (4G) support on the HTC EVO 4G.
As we said CyanogenMod 7 brings Gingerbread to your Android device (see for compatibility) and while many changes have been made behind the scenes you should notice overall that your smartphone is faster. We tried CyanogenMod 7 on a HTC EVO 4G and loved it: nice new lockscreen, screen off animation, fast & smooth scrolling, new theme chooser etc. We highly recommend this custom ROM.
This YouTube video from Google summarizes some of the Android 2.3 improvements that you will find included in CyanogenMod 7:
