Our favorite ROM developers have just released CyanogenMod 7.1, an upgrade to Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. It must be clarified that this is only a Release Candidate (RC), so it’s for testing purposes and will not work perfectly.
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.CyanogenCyanogenMod
If you want to get in early and test this ROM now, you can download it from their mirror network and install it with Rom Manager.
While this is mostly an upgrade to Andorid 2.3.4, CyanogenMod 7.1 comes with many surprises. Some features included in the Change Log are impressive (i.e. bluetooth mouse support), but that’s not the most exciting part. The best news is that their support has extended to quite a few devices. The list includes “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.”
Go ahead! Check out the new RC version of CyanogenMod 7.1, if you’re feeling adventurous. Don’t forget to support the CyanogenMod team by giving feedback about your experience with the software. (It’ll help them make the product better). Anyone out there using it yet? Please let us know what your experience with this Release Candidate is like!
