CyanogenMod 7.2!

After 3 rounds of release candidates, and squashing a few more bugs in the stabilization branch of CyanogenMod 7, the newest stable iteration of the Gingerbread-based CM7 is now being released. The team would like to thank everyone who submitted and followed up on bugs during the RC phase and helped us all get a better 7.2 out there, we couldn’t have done it without all of you, and we’re happy to say most of the devices slated for RC1 ended up getting a stable release today.

As mentioned in the RC1 post, “7.2 adds a couple of backported features and fixes from Android 4 (ICS), over 20 new devices when compared to 7.1, and even some new features to boot (be sure to check out the new predictive contact search in the phone dialer!). We’ve also fixed some bugs along the way. Some of them device-specific, others that affected everybody, and one in particular that’s been plaguing Android for a long time: the mysteriously vanishing SD-card ringtones are no more! You can check the full list of noteworthy changes at the CHANGELOG“.

7.2 also marks the end of the Gingerbread story for some hardware; as phones and tablets “graduate” to an ICS-based CM9 stable release, they will have their CM7 development frozen. That will very soon include the Nexus S devices, and probably a handful of others; for these devices, 7.2.0 will be the last Gingerbread release we do.

It is not, however, the end of the line for CM7. As mentioned before, development for CM7 will continue, even if at a slower pace, for devices that need it. We believe that a device in which IceCream Sandwich degrades functionality shouldn’t get CM9 at all, and since not all hardware is (for various reasons) capable of supporting ICS, there is no set date (nor tentative, nor a plan) to terminate work on CyanogenMod 7.x. We’ll be accepting the contribution of a few new devices very soon, and after a few weekly builds those will probably end up getting their very own 7.2.0 release. We’ll keep reviewing and accepting new device submissions to that version, if they happen. And we’ll keep supporting these devices for as long as we can (or until they can get CM9, whichever comes first :) )

And for last… We acknowledge that some minor/non-critical/unsolvable-at-the-moment issues reported to us were left unresolved; and that some more light (or even serious) problems may have slipped through the RC test stage and be unknown to us; so, as usual, we encourage you to submit any issues you find with these builds through our bug tracker .

Happy upgrading!

    I’ve installed CM7.2 on my Archos 70b reader /bq Voltaire and it works fine.
    The only problem so far is that the startup now says its a bq verne plus and my screen is slightly off.
    I don’t seem to be able to do a recalibrate for the screen though but I’ll manage.
    The energy consumption is greater than before but with a solar charger in the garden I’ve overcome this

    Great ROM but one major problem mentioned in BUG TRACKER. Device not
    compatible with software from google play (compatile with cyanogenmod
    7.1). Strange because after clean instalation there was no such problem.
    After couple of hours (and probably some auto updates) message “device
    isn’t compatible with this version of software”. I have to say that one
    or two programs I have installed with no problems just after clean 7.2
    instalation. And then later same apps tells me than software isn’t compatible
    :/

    I installed on my htc tattoo(click) device cm 7.2.0 and there are bugs in code.
    1-when i connect to pc (windows 7) using USB cable on pressing the button”Turn on USB Storage” device reboots cm logo comes and sometimes it connects and others not to pc.
    2-I unistalled many themes using Applications app and each time there is reboot.
    3-gapps are not installed even if I install from .zip from recovery.I do not see market or maps or youtube or Gmail app icon.

    I think there are other issues and bugs also.Many many thanks to developers who work hard on it hope they will fix it ASAP.

  • Jojodapyro

    More and more issues popping up. I can’t use an after market keyboard, it just changes back every day. I can’t get pictures in text most of the time as it won’t download them. When I  lose coverage when I come back into a coverage area I get a VM notification or whenever I reboot my phone., When I get a real Voice mail I receive 2 text messages  notifying me of it. While using Pandora the Phone will randomly reboot, as well as while using the Mobile Hotspot. Evo 4G

  • Russ

    Sounds like you’ve installed your keyboard on your SD card

  • Jojodapyro

    Might be. Could you help with any of the other issues? Thanks for the keyboard thing though!

  • Jojodapyro

    Nope, it isn’t…
