CyanogenMod 7.0.3

Popular custom ROM CyanogenMod has been updated to version 7.0.3, bringing minor bug fixes along with an "important security fix". The new version is available now through ROM Manager, as well as the official CyanogenMod website.

CyanogenMod 7.0.3 is still based on Android 2.3.3, so user are advised against trying to upgrade to this version if they're running any of the recent 2.3.4-based nightly builds. The CM team is now hard at work on version 7.1, and lead developer Steve Kondik (Cyanogen) has tweeted that he expects release candidates to appear in the next couple of weeks.

The nightly doesn't have it built in, but you can flash the latest GAPPS to get Video GTalk. It works well! I am using an EVO4G, btw.

If you are using the latest nightly, and you flash this then your downgrading in a sense. The newest nightlies are based on 2.3.4 where this build is still 2.3.3. But, I tend to stay with stable builds on my G2.

I like the looks of CyanogenMod, and would love to give it a whirl on my Galaxy Tab when it's available.

Right there with ya, I'm rooted but no ROMS yet until I know I won't lose any existing functionality

If you are rooted, then you can make a nandroid backup so that if you don't like a ROM you can go right back to where you left off.

BTW, I don't know what phone you are running, but I have an EVO 4G and CM7 has 4G functionality, it works with both cameras on the phone, and with one of the EVO HDMI apps on the market (I use HDMwIn) you can mirror your screen to a TV.

Has the random dim boot loop bug on the Nexus S been fixed? I love CM but unrooted and returned to stock because I was tired of having to do a battery pull every few days.

Nothing for the DroidX yet? I know about the bootloader issue, but something like liberty 2.0 from these guys would be nice. 4.5.588 runs butter smooth. I rooted with gingerbreak 1.2 and took a lot of the bloat off. I removed widgets that i don't use and system processes which suck CPU. The experience is very nice. Fast! And aesthetic changes to the UI.

With the 1930 mAh battery I'm getting around 15 hours+ with a good 5 hours or so intense 3G use. It's very satisfying.

I would like to see larger batteries in future phones of course. If cost is an issue then the option to pay more for a more efficient battery that doesn't add much width would be a nice option. We need battery makers to step up to the plate now and design more efficient and advanced batteries. These aftermarket monstrosities are not cutting it!

Update: Phil, would you mind moving this to a forum thread please. I'm a little newish when it comes to forum posts and placement. Much appreciated.

Is 4g wifi tethering fixed on the evo? I'm running 7.0 and have to revert to 3g when tethering to get the data to talk to any tethered devices. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a 4g phone.

Has anyone after they install the new Rom had their Market place app go missing from the Apps list, I had that happen to me today and I was lucky to have the previous Rom backed up. And did a restore, seems like the Devs have to fix a bug in the system if the Market app goes missing.
