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 HTC Evo Shift 4G, 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.

So I have an issue. I have a Motorola Droid X. I rooted that thing no issues and I am now running CM4DX-GB. I have a buddy that has an HTC EVO Shift. On my computer I can get ADB to find my phone and IT WILL NOT FIND THIS DAMN EVO!!! I have tried everything. I completely re-installed the SDK from scratch I installed JDK from scratch. I set his phone completely back to stock! NOTHING IS ON IT!!! I am on "charge only" I have USB debugging enabled. I verified a few times that ADB will still find my DX. I cannot get it to find this damn EVO Shift. I desperately need help I want him to get root and possibly a good ROM. Any advice on ROMS by the way? PLEASE RESPOND ONLY if you are willing and able to help with this ADB troubleshooting.

I guess the obvious question is, do you have the HTC drivers installed? Your going to need them in order for the phone to be recognized. If you don't, download htc sync it will install the drivers for you.

I've had problems with my shift not being recognized if I use after market USB cords.. Are you using the cord that came with the phone?
