Though it has yet to be officially acknowledged on the CyanogenMod blog (and Cyanogen himself posted an official progress update on CM9 just a few days ago), it appears that CM7.2 Release Candidate (RC) 1 is nearly here - an official changelog has been posted to the CM source review.

    Well, I hope the Samsung Galaxy S2 version will be better than the current one...

    • devilEYE

      Why you just not install latest stock ICS rom on your S2? Im using it and everything working really good :)

      • http://twitter.com/#!/dextersgenius Shiv

        Because not every app is updated for ICS yet. :(

    Can't wait for it to go live!

  • calin2k

    cant you fix the "yahoo api is down" s#&%?

  • nk

    "Common: ADB over network"


    • PacoBell

      There had better be decent security on this feature, otherwise I see remote pwnage in the near future.

  • blackroseMD1

    I'm just hoping that there's eventually an official CM7/CM9 build for SGS2 Epic Touch.

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Similarly, in for a build for the Galaxy R.

      • Umang

        Yeah, Need it for Galaxy R. Little Bro of Galaxy S2

  • Tashlan

    Wait! Am I reading that correctly? Does this mean the Vibrant 911 situation is going to be resolved?

    • Saifur Rob

      I think that doesn't include the Vibrant, just the OG Galaxy S.

      • DeafMute

        It says GSM version, so that would be the regular/AT&T/Tmobile/etc version of the device.

    • http://www.cyanogenmod.com ciwrl

      Our official position? "Vibrant is officially unresolved"

      In non-snark terms, e911 on Vibrant is fixed, and we tentatively have a maintainer. So...the possibility of it being made stable is plausible...maybe ;p

  • DeafMute

    Finally a stable Atrix build.

  • tentoys

    XT720, battery improved, reboot every 5-7 minutes, still no 19x9 pix (wishlist?)
    2 wipes after install...

    Nothing for the HTC Sensation yet :(

    • Tenoch77

      no love for the Sensation??? I need a new phone...

  • Gooch

    Hopefully we Skyrocket owners get some CM love soon. Is it true that Cyanogen himself owns a Skyrocket? if so then I wouldn't doubt we will have support.

  • Paul Johnson

    Doesn't seem to be available for the Backflip yet?

  • tekrhino

    Sweet, gonna give this update a spin.
    I'm liking the FM radio fixes because my car stereo is toast! Only the CD player works..haha

  • http://www.techxe.com dasche

    Very nice features. Waiting 4 it.

  • Rob

    Dare I ask how this all affects the HTC EVO 4G? (I'm afraid to ask).

  • jani

    when is release date?

    • PacoBell

      I sincerely hope you're just trolling...

      • AndrewD

        No! When is the release date? Simple question, simple answer.

    • Matt

      I've been running 7.2 on my evo 4G now for a few hours, it's running good so far!
