CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.


First time flashing CyanogenMod 7 to the Barnes & Noble Nook Color, or coming from another ROM?
  1. Root the device and install ClockworkMod Recovery. Instructions are available here.
  2. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.
  3. Format the system, data & cache partitions of your device.
  4. Perform a factory reset.
  5. Flash CyanogenMod.
  6. Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package.
Upgrading from earlier version of CyanogenMod 7?
  1. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.
  2. Flash CyanogenMod (your Google Apps will be backed up & restored automatically).

Experience issues? Please provide the following info:
  • If the device was hard reboot, please provide the file "/proc/last_kmsg".
  • If the device was soft reboot or is "bootlooping", please run a logcat and provide the full output.
  • Please use Pastebin when possible.

I have constant wifi problems on CM7. Had problems with the nighties and hoped they would be cleared up for me here, but no. Wifi drops for me about every minute. I am running CM7 on my DroidX sitting right next to my Nook Color connected to the same WiFi with no problems whatsoever. I am sure this is not a CM7 problem as it is something with my setup. Fresh install, wiped system, data, cache, dalvik. Any help?

Hi everyone! pretty new to rootzwiki. Just ordered a nook color, wondering how CM7.1 is running! Anyone have any feedback?
It works great! I love it. It's somewhat ironic in my case that I took a perfectly good reader, rooted it, and loaded CM7 on it just to continue to primarily use it as a reader :) But that's one of the best parts, I now have the option to buy books from wherever and read them on my device (B&N, Amazon, Google) with their respective apps.

It's also pretty sweet for Neflix.

and Gmail and the internet.

and also... well it's just pretty sweet for most everything I guess.

Run CM7 from sd card all you have to do is remove sd card reboot and you are back to stock.
Running from sdcard is not an option if you have the wrong sdcard. Mine constantly froze and FCed all over the place until I put it on internal memory
