The minds behind CyanogenMod have done it again, bringing nightly updates to several LG Optimus variants, and adding official CM7 support for the Epic 4G (not to be confused with Sprint's Galaxy SII variant).

Among the newly-supported LG devices are the Optimus 3D (p920), Hub (e510), Pro (c660), and Black (p970) (which is technically seeing the return of nightlies). It may be worth noting that the Optimus Hub and Pro both received RomManager support tonight, making it excessively simple to get CM goodness on the devices.

Update #1: The Epic 4G (epicmtd) nightly just showed up as well.

Update #2 1/2/12: LG Thrill (p925) appeared today.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

Ricardo Cerqueira, in a Google+ post on the subject, asked users to report bugs over at the relevant RootzWiki forums, and noted that CM builds specific to the p925 version of the Optimus 3D will be pushed in the coming days.

Joining the ranks of devices lucky enough to receive official CM7 support is Samsung's Epic 4G. CyanogenMod support has been a long time coming for the Epic, and it is evident from CM's post on Google+ that users are overjoyed at the prospect of getting one of the most regarded Android ROMs around on their devices at long last. The Epic 4G's CM repository can be found here. To get your hands on CyanogenMod builds for any of the Optimus devices, just hit the links above and enjoy!

    Jajajaja, The nightlies return!!!
    Big good news for LG users!!!

  • Gary Hicks

    How the hell could the LG Revolution not be getting support?

    • Blisk

      Maybe it has a locked boy loader. Lots of Verizon devices do.

      • Gary Hicks

        Nope. LG Revolution is completely unlocked. Maybe because its 4G?

        • deltaechoe

          The reason that the revolution isn't joining the cm7 party is probably because of the lte radio. There is no fully merged ril for any lte device as far as I know and because of this and probably other game breaking reasons cm7 will probably never officially support lte 4g. Cm9 on the other hand will almost certainly support lte

    Please official support for lg p500 optimisation one...

    • Spr

      Did you know the unofficial CM7 for P500 has lesser/no bugs compared to many official builds for other phones.

      I think you should stick to LG android build...

    They have the HTC Sensation on the devices page of their website, but there's no stable, experimental or nightlies to download :(

  • David

    Why don't you find out why the HTC EVO nightlies stopped 6 weeks ago, even though the there are over 3 pages of updated items are backlogged on the changelog? It's crazy!

  • Wr3ck

    Sweet, that's still my phone (Epic 4G). I wonder if I should at least temporarily check this out and compare it to Legendary ROM 2.2. I doubt I'd leave Legendary for this as they are on the verge of going from BML partitions to MTD but this is still great news

  • meetloaf13

    And the EPIC heavens rejoice!

  • pingu

    Nightlies aren't being created directly for any devices at the moment - only user Kangs are.

      Er... that site isn't ours. It's a nice resource, but it isn't authoritative.

      Simply visiting http://get.cm/ will show you recent nightlies are being generated for new devices.
