While the Nexus S has now taken over the role of Google’s flagship Android device from Nexus One, the latter still remains a favorite amongst developers of custom ROMs. One such recently released ROM is MicroMod’s Gingerbread CM7 Custom ROM v1.1 based on the CyanogenMod 7 code.

  • Themed Keyboard,
