What a week for Samsung Galaxy S family device owners! First, the Captivate was officially added to the list of devices supported by CyanogenMod, the largest Android ROM community in the world, and now not 1 but 3 more phones are following suit - the Galaxy S, the T-Mobile Vibrant, and the Sprint Nexus S 4G (crespo4g).

The news hit yesterday, but since no downloadable builds were available from the CM mirror network until late last night, we decided to wait until they're up.

Of course, support for these Android 2.3.4 "Gingerbread" (GRJ22) releases is right now limited to said nightly builds of CyanogenMod 7, which will graduate to release candidates and stables releases when the time is right and all but non-serious bugs have been ironed out. You can grab the first nightlies here:

You can find some help for rooting and flashing CM on your devices by following this CM wiki link.


Congratulations to all of you who can now join the family (aka the dark side). Welcome!

P.S. As we discussed, support for the Epic 4G and the Fascinate is likely to come later due to some complications related to porting these devices to the CM mainline.
