CyanogenMod community has unveiled the first Release Candidate for CM7, one of the most popular custom ROMs available on Android devices. This version is based on the latest build of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. According to official site, it supports a variety of new features including improved appearance, revamped and customizable lockscreen, a restyled music app, “phone goggles” (which we assume means Google googles), gesture support everywhere and so on.
Here is the list of supported Android devices at the moment (the device codenames are included in brackets):
- Nexus S (Crespo)
- Nexus One (Passion)
- myTouch 3G Slide (Espresso)
- HTC Desire Z/T mobile G2 (Vision)
- myTouch 4G/HD (Glacier)
- HTC Aria (Liberty)
- Evo 4G (Supersonic)
- Viewsonic G Tablet
This is a Release Candidate, meaning that it is still work in progress, but should be stable enough for day to day use. Also note that your device needs to be Rooted to flash these custom roms. Free version of ROM Manager can be used to do that once you have rooted your phone.
