More details, feature list and instructions after the jump.
It is worth noticing that this CM 7.1 Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread source for Infuse 4G is unofficial and comes from Senior XDA-Developers member LinuxBozo.

The current status of this CM 7.1 unofficial source for Infuse 4G is pretty much bug free with plenty of functions tested as working.
Currently 2G / 3G switching causes the phone to for close and HDMI output aren’t working. Here is a list of stuff that works in the CM 7.1 Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread custom Source for Samsung Infuse 4G:

Strangely, the developer hasn’t released a ClockworkMod Recovery flashable zip package for this ROM. If you are a developer yourself, already have enough skills on compiling applications from source code on Linux or other UNIX-based systems, or want to get into the process and start off with compiling a ROM for the very first time, you can head over to the official XDA thread posted here and see how you can compile your own build as per instructions from the developer. Those of you with enough development skills can also contribute to the project to fix any of the few leftover bugs, add more features, or modify the source code to your own liking to cook up your very own CyanogenMod 7 based ROM will find it a very interesting project.
As for those of you who don’t want to get their hands dirty with compiling a ROM from source code, you’re currently out of luck. However, fret not – we will write a step by step guide once the zip is available for every one to download, and guide you through the process of getting the finished product up and running on your device.
