Warning: This article contains information about flashing custom ROMs to your phone. If you're at all new to this, give our complete guide to custom ROM flashing a read.

Well folks, the day has finally come: the Gingerbread-based CyanogenMod 7 Release Candidates have landed for 17 Android devices. These "RCs" are suitable, generally speaking, for everyday use and have been road-tested enough that TeamDouche feels they're almost ready for prime time.

Having your phone model supported by CyanogenMod's community is quite an honor nowadays, and for many people it's a deciding factor when picking up a new phone. CM usually stays ahead of the curve and is likely to support your phone well after manufacturers and carriers stop showing any interest.

Therefore, ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco owners should be feeling quite ecstatic right now, as the world's largest ROM community announced its official support of this device (see Cyanogen's commit here).

Ever since the official Honeycomb video preview was unleashed at CES, the blogosphere has been aflutter with admiration for the update's stunning UI. It didn't take long for the developer and modder community to push out Honeycomb-like visuals, either - for example, the clock widget has been available for a few weeks.

Now there's an even better way to get that Honeycomb feel, at least for those running CyanogenMod 7 (CM7): Honeybread.

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.

Big news from kernel-master toastcfh about an hour ago: WiMax (Sprint's 4G) is now working on CyanogenMod. This has long been one of the most heard complaints from CM fans with EVOs in particular (in fact, just about every time we post on CM, somebody comments about the lack of 4G). At the moment, details are light - for example, we don't know how long it's going to take to make it into a release, or if there's anything special involved.

CM6

Is it that time already? It was just 11 days ago that CM6.1 was dropped, and the team has already released 6.1.1. As this is a minor update, the changes aren't anything revelatory, but an update is an update, right?

    6.1.1
  • Common: Add rotary lockscreen - Kmobs/cvpcs
  • Common: Updated translations - (everyone)
  • Common: Push update notificatiosn - Chris Soyars
  • Common: Fix camera sounds - CAF/Cyanogen/mtwebster
  • N1/DS/Supersonic: Kernel performance tweaks and fixes (various)
  • N1: Update build fingerprint
  • Vision: Fix MMS over WiFi calling - Zinx
  • Vision: Add console=null to kernel command line - Adam Tygart
  • Vision: Kernel to 2.6.32.27 and some performance tweaks
  • Droid: FRG83D fingerprint, translations, camera, torch fixes

At the moment, the new revision has only been released for four devices: The EVO 4G, Nexus One, T-Mobile G2, and MyTouch Slide.

Froyo for AT&T's version of the Dell Streak has certainly been long in the making - and it looks like it AT&T still isn't ready to release it - but users who simply can't wait any longer now have an option, albeit an unofficial one.

CyanogenMod 6.1 Alpha has just been ported over to the 5-inch tabletphone, and while the experience is said to be imperfect as it stands, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, and hardware acceleration are reportedly all in working order.

CM6

After spending over a month in the release candidate stages, a final (stable) release of Android's most popular ROM has just been pushed out. Cyanogen himself tweeted the news, but also mentioned one small caveat: Samsung devices (read: the Galaxy S line) are left out of the fun, with no ETA. (Update: not available for the HTC Wildfire either.)

CM6

We have good news and bad news (x2), world. The good: the first CM6.1 build for the Samsung Galaxy S has been released. The first (and worst) bit of bad news: at this point, it looks like it's for the GT-i9000 only, and not the US versions of the SGS (though I'm no dev, so I'm not positive). The other bad news: this is apparently a very bug-laden release ("Holy crap, it's full of BUGS!").

Exactly a week after getting rooted and only a few days after getting its very first CyanogenMod nightly release, HTC Desire Z and T-Mobile G2 owners can now upgrade to RC1 (release candidate 1), bringing it up to speed with the rest of the devices supported by the CM team. Apparently, these guys move at light speed.

G2/Desire Z owners should consider themselves lucky, as Cyanogen himself owns a G2 and maintains this CM branch - that's when you know you are in good hands.
