CyanogenMod 7 is one of the most popular Gingerbread based AOSP ROM for Android devices. Not too long back we received the CM7 RC4 for a lot of Android devices, including the Samsung Nexus S. Now we have confirmation of the Stable Release of CyanogenMod 7 for the Nexus S and handful of other devices! So for those of you, who were waiting for the final stable release, or those who were on the RC4 waiting for the final update, read on!
While, the RC4 was stable for everyday use as it was, the final release has proven to be entirely stable without any bugs so far. Of course this release is a day old and we could be proven wrong, but we hope that doesn’t happen. The Stable Release includes some more features such as the bottom status bar which was a Mod by itself before. However those features are now bundled up in the ROM and best of all, those features are now functional on phones as well. So why wait, let’s get this ROM up and running on your Nexus S!
