Install CyanogenMod 7 Beta 2 on HTC Hero GSM


This is the latest Beta version of the CyanogenMod 7 for HTC Hero built entirely from the source. We have been covering this ROM for a number of phones (see our earlier posts regarding CyanogenMod 7) due to its popularity and stability. Anyone interested in trying out the latest Beta 2 version before the release of the final version can give it a try.

CyanogenMod 7 brings the goodness of Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread to users still using the Android 2.2 Froyo version. CyanogenMod is one of the most popular custom ROMs available to the Android community due to its stability, speed and features not even available in most other custom ROMs. You can read more about the latest CyanogenMod builds by following our feature on CyanogenMod 7 nightly builds.
