CyanogenMod 7.0 now available for the masses

It’s finally here. The moment you’ve been waiting for – or not if you’ve been using the release candidates. The devs/hackers/code-ninjas at CyanogenMod released version 7.0 of its famous ROM today. CyanogenMod 7.0 is available for 30 devices and has way too many improvements to even bother listing them. But the most important feature of all is that the ROM is based on Android’s latest and greatest version: Gingerbread. To refresh your memory, Gingerbread features:

  • UI refinements for simplicity and speed
  • Faster, more intuitive text input
  • One-touch word selection and copy/paste
  • Improved power management
  • Control over applications. “Manage applications” shortcut in the Home menu
  • Native Internet calling support
  • Support for Near-field communications
  • Downloads app for downloads management
  • Many under the hood enhancements to speed and responsiveness

There you have it folks, more features and improvements than you can shake a stick at. If you have one of the 30 supported devices head on to CyanogenMod’s website and select your device from the list. Now how about adding support for the LG Optimus One? Pretty please, with sugar on top?
