CyanogenMod 7 for HTC EVO 3D, Sensation available now


EVO 3D and Sensation owners, rejoice! CyanogenMod 7, the leading name in Android Open Source Project ROMs, has finally been made available for your devices.

Released just yesterday, Alpha versions of the stock Android Gingerbread-based ROM can be downloaded from either XDA or RootzWiki. Both ROMs are in the same stage of development, and both include their fair share of bugs. But if you’ve been dying to get away from Sense and really let your hardware fly, the time has come. Early reports from users say that, despite the bugs present in both builds, they are stable enough to use on a daily basis.

In order to flash CyanogenMod 7 to your EVO 3D or Sensation, you must be rooted with S-Off. That means anyone who used HTC’s unlocking tool needs to start the process over and use Revolutionary this time. Using Revolutionary and flashing a custom ROM are tasks that need to be fully explored and researched before attempted.

For more information on either Alpha build and to download them, use the links below. Sensation, EVO 3D owners, are you taking the plunge?

      I laughed at how excited you were about this update…I can’t wait for a new phone so I can feel this joy of having to see cyanmod on my phone again

        And I messed the link up as I was using my evo 3d to post the comment.

        Apparently if you use a big “HD” it doesn’t force the video to play in hd!

    I hope we get a phone soon that launches with CyanogenMod just like how the MIUI ROM has one.

    • Dustin Earley

      I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately. If CM had the funding, it wouldn’t be hard.

  • uknowme

    Sweet it sounds like it is time to play! Just one question. Does anyone know if the last OTA screwed up the rooting process on the 3D?

  • JBC

    Sweet, thanks to the devs for another choice. That being said, I don’t get why people do not like Sense. The animated widgets rock. Meh chalk it up to personal preference I guess.

    Uhm nice. I think I’ll let my dreams, of seeing a proper working ROM of Gingerbread on my Spica, just die. C’mon CyanogenMod, I know you can do it!

  • tyler

    Ive been running it for a full day now on my sensation ( I’m posting this comment using it!) And most everything is working quite well… the browser can be best described as “desktop speed” and the whole phone works buttery smooth! There are a couple minor bugs and a few hiccups along the way but the system as a whole is ready for day to day use by all but the least techy and understanding of us. (You know who you are…)
