The stock launcher that comes with Android 2.2 is hardware accelerated, so it is faster than LauncherPro or the ADW Launcher. If you have CyanogenMod 7 installed but need a stock Android launcher, Frank’s CM7 Stock Gingerbread Mod is what you need. This Mod should be installed after installing CyanogenMod 7 ROM and Google Apps for CyanogenMod 7. Instructions can be found below after the jump.
We have been covering the CyanogenMod custom ROM installation instructions for various devices in our previous posts. CyanogenMod used ADW launcher as its apps launcher. Using the following instructions you can replace the ADW launcher with the Stock Gingerbread launcher. Also Frank’s CM7 Stock Gingerbread ROM includes the supercurios script, which increases the read/write speeds. The supercurios script will run at every boot so you don’t have to run the script manually. In addition a few apps are added and removed from the CyanogenMod ROM and are listed below. We thank the valued member of XDA-Developer frank707 for this Rom.
Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.
This Mod needs to be installed after every install, upgrade or update of the CyanogenMod, as the modifications are reverted back to the default ADW launcher. For instructions regarding the installation of CyanogenMod, refer to our earlier posts.
