CyanogenMod 7 has earned its reputation as the most reliable Gingerbread ROM, even though it hasn't yet entered stable mode. And tonight, the fun goes on - RC4 RC3.14159265358979323846264338327, as the CM team so lovingly refers to it, has just been launched for all supported CM devices.

While RC4 doesn't contain any ground-breaking new features, it does bring a number of bug fixes - for example, hardware acceleration has been added to the Nook Color, and EGL has seen a big fix. It isn't perfect yet - kmobs notes that there may be some "lingering GPS issues on the EVO and the N1 call audio bug hasn't been fully fixed" - but it's still worth the update.

Again, RC4 is available for all supported CyanogenMod devices - if your handset is on the list, you can grab the ROM now with a click of the download link below.

    Loving Gingerbread on my EVO 4G! Thanks CyanogenMod!

  • Ken

    I love CM. There are little bugs here and there, but overall, it's magical.

  • jbc

    I'd totally appreciate a link to where you get the information from... I can't find the claim that hardware acceleration has been added to the Nook Color anywhere else!

    In any case, if the news are true, those are very good news. Love CM!

    I want to instal v7 rc4 need to kknow what wworks and what doesn't, and if there is a preinstalled custom kernel

    • Paul

      CM7 runs on its own custom kernel. For my HTC Vision (aka T-Mobile G2 aka Desire Z) there's also a pershoot custom kernel I can use, haven't tried it though but one person reported it helped battery life a lot in CM7.

    I just got a new Nook Color and am thinking about rooting it. Anyone have any experience with RC4 on that?

    Really, I could hold off until B&N sends out an update and see how well that works, but . . . well . . . y'know . . . it might be fun to play a little. Besides, I doubt that B&N will give me Market.

    For now, though, I am very happy with the Nook as a book-reader and would not want to mess that up.

    On my Nook Color CM7 RC4 is MUCH better than froyo that previously ran internally. With the 1.1GHz kernel and the new CyanogenMOD settings set to “1100/300 Ondemand” I’m getting a quadrant score of over 1700 (highest number I got was 1739)!!! Remember to disable SetCPU to take advantage of the CM7 speed.
