CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.

This is an alpha release, but you should find it stable for everyday use.

THIS IS NOT SAMSUNG TOUCHWIZ AND NEVER WILL BE. DO NOT ASK ABOUT IT IN THIS THREAD. THANK YOU.

This is an AOSP-based build with extra contributions from many people which you can use without any type of Google applications. I found a link from some other project that can be used to restore the Google parts, which can be found below or elsewhere in the thread. I've still included the various hardware-specific code, which seems to be slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Visit the CHANGELOG for a full list of changes and features!

Thank you to EVERYONE involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging and documenting! Enjoy!

The current buglist:
Outbound calls initiated from a bluetooth handsfree kit do not wake the phone
Charging notification LED does not light until full charge is reached
WiFi is unstable
Overlay for Video Recording
Video playback for certain encoders
Wimax

Other than those (relatively) minor bugs, this rom is nearing a somewhat completion.

New Changes
- Latest upstream merges
- Updated with EI22 modules
- WIFI stack should be IDENTICAL to stock
- Merges to kernel by nubecoder and mkasick
- New cpu governors
- Reboot to recovery works
- A bunch of other things

Changes:
- Updated prebuilt modules
- 2.3.7
- Compiled kernel from source MAJOR THANKS to mkasick and Rodderick
- Fixed torch overlay
- Fixed MMS overlay
- Fixed incoming call routing
- Fixed mic feedback/whistling
- Adjusted APN for MMS - receiving works, sending fixed
- Fixed application notification LED based on a tip from DRockstar
- Fixed haptic feedback with a patch from jt1134
- Synced with CM sources as of 10/21

I recommend using the EH17 modem.
Please note flashing someone else's kernel may ruin your experience with this rom and I advise against it. This rom is a result of many tiring hours from myself, jt1134, Uberpinguin, nullghost, dameon78, wispofattes, DRockstar, and many many other contributors.

Hey Deca, I'm having some pretty slow screen rotation, almost as if I need to run the sensorcalibutil_yamaha from TE, but its not in system/bin. I tried to push it with root explorer, but its asking for other stuff too and I dont want to break anything. Any suggestions?

Really love CM7 on my Touchpad so I tried this one out on my Epic 4G. While it worked great, it just seem to be missing some functionality that I was used to and some minor issues. Main thing was 4G not working and the battery working getting really hot.

Would love to have all my toys running CM7 so I'm looking forward to the next update for my Epic.

Installed this ROM and its very snappy and smooth. I dont think ive come across any other ROM as quick and clean install. Great Job to everyone involved and devoting their restless nights and efforts to make this possible for the Epic 4g. I thought this day will never come.
