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!

  • Aju0203

    Why isnt the samsung galaxy mini – tass added to the main devices page although there is a stable 7.2 release for it ?

  • Elias

    It’s not so simple, they need first to find a developer with that phone who’s willing to make CM work on it.

  • Elias

    Sure, if they find a developer with that phone who’s willing to be responsible for the port.

    Sure they will, when they find a developer with that phone who’s willing to be responsible for the port. I’d guess there’s already one probably, so if you want a bleeding edge beta you should look in the forums here or xda. Beware it’s not stable at all, if it exists. If you need stability, just wait.

  • mahnaz

    hello.i am irani.thank you.

  • George Pippos

    first of all, I really appreciate the support cm gives older devices even when the manufacturers have given up!

    just a small question: for devices (such as the htc desire) that have had teams other than cm (like zerocool’s bcm and sandvold) working on getting a stable ics rom even if they are not officially supported, will they eventually become supported officially or are they gone from the official ics support list forever? In particular i am talking about when BCM becomes stable as zeroCool uses cm9 source as a base for his rom.

    LG Thrill 3D 4G – Bluetooth isn’t working properly in ANY of the versions, stable, RC or nightly.  A2DP doesn’t connect to media.  LOVE the work you have done!

  • Nishant Desai

    is this available for lg optimus net p690?

  • Porkchop6mm

    This is the first stable mod (make that OS for that matter) I’ve yet to use on my first & only-ever-to-be Smartphone/ an SGST959 Vibrant. Many thanks, for taking the time to give me what basically amounts to being a NEW phone I otherwise could not have afforded, one that actually works! After weak wifi using Eclair2.1-1 with multiple signal losses/ drops, for example, multiple app crashes/ FCs after stock Froyo update through Kies Mini, it took no less than a custom ROM to finally get a working phone a full 2 years after it was manufactured. I may be new to rooting and CRs but I’m a 53 year young supertechgeek that knows what works and so far THIS works!!!
    Again, MANY THANKS for an awesome early birthday present (I’ll be 54 in 11days)! I’m loving my new CyanoBread Vibrant running the aCyanbread theme!!! :-)

    thk! You are so great and I hope the more your community can do for us !

  • Trance Roberson

    I purchased a Motorola Triumph a couple months ago and said I’d never root it.  After reading about ICS I looked at four different sites and found the correct way to root, and rom my phone.  I LOVE ICS!!!!  Unfortunately I really need the camera to work so I moved down to GB and expected to hate it.  I LOVE GB!!!

    The Car app you have is incredible and my phone works 100% better.  Thanks a million and as soon as I find your info i’ll be donating.

    What is the “shadow” tag? Is it a new name for Motorola
    Droid X for CM7.2? Is it non-CDMA version of Droid X? A cdma_shadow
