Samsung Galaxy Spica is a flagship Android device from Samsung that simply refuses to go out dated or die it’s technological death. One good thing about Android is it’s massive and consistent development support and Samdroid never deserted Spica like XDA and other famous Android forums. As we all know that CyanogenMod 7.1 is now in a release candidate stature with official support and availability for select Android devices. Nebkat at Samdroid forums has done the awesome job of porting CyanogenMod 7.1 Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread custom ROM on Samsung Galaxy Spica. So far 4 releases have been made available for general public consumption with each one carrying bug fixes and improved features based on rigorous testing and user feedback. This ROM can act as your Spica’s daily driver as there aren’t many bugs.
