CyanogenMod-7.1 Released!

It’s been far too long since our last official release, but I’m happy to present CyanogenMod-7.1! I apologize for the long delay, and I hope to speed up our release process in the future. We originally planned to release this last weekend at the Big Android BBQ but some issues with our automated build system held it back.

You’ll find many new features (read the CHANGELOG) and support for building on 68 devices! Upgrading from any previous CM-7 release or nightly build should be smooth and no wipe should be required.

New devices since 7.0 included in today’s release are:

HTC Desire S HTC Incredible S HTC Incredible 2 LG Optimus 2X and T-Mobile G2x Motorola Backflip (Motus) Motorola Cliq / Cliq XT Motorola Defy Motorola Droid 2 Motorola Droid X Samsung Captivate Samsung Fascinate Samsung Mesmerize Samsung Showcase Samsung Vibrant Samsung Galaxy S Samsung Galaxy S2 (multiple carriers) Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 Sony …

CyanogenMod-7.1.0-RC1

The first release candidate of CyanogenMod-7.1 is ready for testing!

This version is an update to Android 2.3.4, includes many new features, and brings support to several new devices. We are now supporting various Samsung devices (Galaxy S, Captivate, and Vibrant), the LG Optimus 2X (p990) /T-Mobile G2x (p999), HTC Incredible S (vivo), and Motorola CLIQ/CLIQ XT. A full list of features and changes can be found in the CHANGELOG.

This release candidate should be fairly stable for daily use, but always do a backup first in case something goes wrong. You can help out by giving us feedback on the forums and reporting bugs at the issue tracker.

The best way to install CM7.1-RC1 is to use ROM Manager, or you can manually download it from our mirror network.

Many thanks to EVERYONE (we have over 400K CM7 users!) for your continued support, and everyone who has contributed their time to …

CyanogenMod-7.0.1 Update Release

It’s been about two weeks since we rolled out the first stable version of CyanogenMod-7, and it unfortunately came with a few bugs. 7.0.1 brings many bugfixes, including GPS fixes for many devices, a handful a new features, and support for a few devices that weren’t quite ready in time for 7.0 (original Droid).

As always, the best way to install CM is to use ROM Manager. If you are running the current stable release, you should get a notification when a build is ready for your device. You can also manually download from our mirror network (powered by TD Revolution”), or head over to our forums.

Check out the latest CHANGELOG for a quick summary of everything included in this release.

Thanks to everyone for their continued support and contributions!

EDIT: Sorry guys, we made a mistake and there are issues with 7.0.1. 7.0.2 will be up shortly.

CyanogenMod 7.0 Released!

After over 4 months of work, many sleepless nights, and contributions from people all around the world, I am proud to release CyanogenMod 7.0 into the wild!

CM7 is based on the 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) release of Android from Google. We’ve added most of the great features from CM6 you know and love, and many new ones including support for several tablets. We are currently providing support for 30 devices! I continue to be amazed with this community and the dedication of everyone involved. It’s a neverending work-in-progress so if you find a problem, please let us know on our issue tracker. There are a few CM6 features that aren’t part of CM7 yet, but they are in the queue for 7.1 already.

The best way to install CM7 is to use ROM Manager. Detailed instructions for rooting your device can be found at our wiki. Manual downloads can be obtained from our Read the Rest…

CyanogenMod-7.0.0-RC2 is here!

Another round of release candidates for CM7 are on their way out.. This version is an update to Android 2.3.3, and also brings a few new features like WiMAX on the EVO (from #TEAMWIN), Notification Profiles, and many bugfixes. We are feature-frozen and in bugfix mode at this point, so please let us know about any issues on our bug tracker.

Get the latest from ROM Manager, or head over to our forums or our mirror network for manual downloads.

Edit:

We could never have imagined such a turnout on RC2.  In less than 24 hours since the release, we have accumulated over 150,000 downloads between the RCs of the officially supported devices.  This blows our mind and makes doing this all the more rewarding.
