Boy, do we ever have some fantastic news for the AOSP ROM-loving crowd: CyanogenMod nightlies are finally back, meaning the first official CM7 builds are rolling out as I type this. Sure, they're probably moderately buggy (although generally, CM nightlies are still pretty good), and yeah, they may be missing some features - but let's be frank: it'll still probably be one of the most solid Gingerbread builds around, regardless of what device you're using.


At the time of this writing, only the myTouch Slide, original Droid, and Nexus One builds have been compiled and are ready for mass consumption. However, it shouldn't be long before other devices start cropping up one-by-one, so check back every few hours to see if a build is ready for whatever device you may be using.

Update: Add the EVO, GSM Desire, CDMA Desire, Droid Incredible, and  HTC Legend to the ever-expanding list. The myTouch 4G and G2 builds are currently being compiled. For real-time updates, check out the TeamDouche BuildBot.

Update 2: The builds for the myTouch 4G and G2/Desire Z have arrived, as have the builds for the Samsung Nexus S, ZTE Orange Boston, HTC Aria, Desire HD, and Geeksphone ONE. Enjoy!

The changelog this time... well, it's a bit sneaky, really:


  • Common: Android 2.3.1 (Gingerbread)
  • Common: ClockworkMod Recovery 3.0: Koush, Cyanogen, Zinx

Gingerbread brings a whole slew of changes, but if you'd really like to get into that can of worms, hit up our primer. In the meantime, if you're the adventurous type, what are you waiting for? Get a-flashin', and let us know how it goes!

    Badass! Can't wait for this to drop for my Evo.

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Wish granted. Post updated :)

        Bam! already on build 3! Super slick. For a relatively early build, it works really well.

  • mn

    Been playing with the unofficial nightlies for a few days now, and even those builds were 99% rock solid. All the goodness of Gingerbread, with CyanogenMod extras = Win win!

  • lolobabes

    I have rooted N1, I dont know which one I should download. ty

  • Adrian

    HTC Legend FTW :D

  • Jessie

    Does this rom will run in G1? Or when you say its Gingerbread, G1 no longer support this version?


    • Aaron Gingrich

      I believe they supported the G1 for CM6, no clue about CM7 though. Best place to check/ask is the CM forums.

    Wildfire wildfire!

    I've been playing with the CM7 roms for the past couple of weeks ... really good. Hopefully they have worked out the bugs with GPS and will eventually get 4G working.

    I'm totally having a fangirl moment this morning. Love the screen on/off animations!

  • mike

    Running smooth on N1, I am loving it!

  • Edward

    Running amazing for Evo, is it supposed to come with no android market place though?
