CM7

CyanogenMod 7 has reached the final version, after having gone through the alpha/beta/release candidate phases, and uploads are in process.  CyanogenMod 7 has support for more than 30 devices, including:

If you're daring and want to download the package and install it yourself, you'll need a link.  I just so happen to have one of those right here.  You also might need some GApps.  The more patient (or lazy) types can just wait for Rom Manager to populate, which shouldn't be far off now that the final version is rolling out.  No word about the status of any RC4 bugs, like GPS on the Evo or the "wonk" on the Nexus One, but rest assured the team won't rest until CM7 is the best it can be.  [CyanogenMod]

Sweeeeeet! HDMI and WiMax up and running I hope. Get a bluetooth stack that lets me get my Wiimote on! Still love Warm 2.2 and if it didn't keep the sense based BT stack I might never leave.

Don't forget to backup all your stuff.
- Titanium Backup your apps.
- Backup any SMS or other messages.
- Backup ADW settings and ADW configuration.
- Do a Nandroid backup.

THEN download and install CM7. I would do a full wipe too.

After CM7 installs, flash gapps before your reboot your phone.

Because the Cyanogenmod team does not own one, and they only work with phones they own. AND THE eFuse bootloader is to tough to crack to put a rom like cyanogenmod on it.

According to a few of the members @ Cyanogen a droid X variant is being worked on as of currently.

Just loaded it onto my HTC Inspire over Nightly 38! Seems to be running fine and bugs from the nightlies have been fixed from what I've seen so far.

SO Sad.... NO more nightlies :( what to look forward to every night now?

STILL BEST ROM EVER!!!!

There will still be nightlies. Work will begin on 7.1 now. Actually the nightlies will get more exciting now because they will shift from bug fix mode back to new feature mode.

SO Sad.... NO more nightlies :( what to look forward to every night now?

STILL BEST ROM EVER!!!!

Also, if you use CyanogenMod and have not yet donated to the cause, you really should. That whole team has spent countless hours getting this up and running for all of us!

i would second this, however, it doesnt say that cm7 has support for the droid, but that Cyanogenmod has support for droid...

follow @LayherDaddy on twitter. he's the man in charge of CM7 on TBolt. I guess the LTE is the issue

Droid x wont get it because you can't flash custom kernals due to the encrypted bootloader. Thunderbolt will have it probably as soon as they work out issues with the RIL (radio interface layer) from what I understand that part of the code is not open source so they're having to reverse engineer it. Slayher and co are making progress on that front I hear.

I'm still lacking gps...which sucks because it seems everytime I need it I have to reflash a different rom to get it to work. What's the easiest way to get gps to work?

Since Cyanogen's wiki goes by their Trade names i think you guys should incorporate that into your blog post for updates like this.

When are you guys going to hook up some Samsung phones with CM7? I have an Epic 4G,...all these phones hooked up with CM7 and I am feeling left out. LOL!!!

Loaded CM7 onto my rooted Nook Color this afternoon. Went flawless. I'm really loving it. This $250 WiFi Nook Color is now a full fledged 7" Android tablet AND ebook reader, all with no contract. Thanks all!!!

I've tried several times, but could never get it successfully loaded on my Droid Incredible. I gets to the boot animation, and then just stays there.

I've cleared everything and still get the same result. Several other ROMs load just fine, so I have no idea what is missing for me.

Wow! The final is so silky smooth on my Inc! Been running nightlyies for months and they always had alot of ADW force closes and random lag, but this is just smooth!!!!!! Thank you cyanogen team!

If you try this ROM, be sure to backup your ROM and copy SD backup(s) to a pc!

I tried the rom and it corrupted my SD card, killing my backup. A day later the ROM quit being able to complete the boot process, hanging up at the cyanogen rotating arrow logo. Phone is an HTC evo. Perhaps some driver isn't quite ready. Or perhaps I needed to clear the phone (cache, etc.) more thoroughly before installing cyanogen.

It's a .0 release (despite the .1 after the .0) and .0 releases universally are buggy as hell. I'll wait for 7.1.x

I"m now using VaelPak and although it's not gingerbread, it works great.
