CyanogenMod 7.1 Released; Comes with Support for Android 2.3.7 on 68 Devices

October 10, 2011, By Leo Xavier

The CyanogenMod team has released a new stable version of their firmware. CyangenMod 7.1, most certainly the largest Android custom ROM, now covers 68 devices and it has come with a lot of fixes and tweaks, the most important among them being support for Android 2.3.7.

As you know, the release was originally planned to happen last weekend at the Big Android BBQ. It was delayed due to some issues with the automated build system.

The CM team has announced the list of new devices that have become part of their community since the release of 7.0. The list includes devices such as the HTC Desire S, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Droid X, Samsung Galaxy S2 and Sony Ericsson Xperia X8.


And more devices such as the EVO 3D, HP Touchpad, Optimus 3D, and others will also be added into the list in the future. The builds for these devices are currently in beta status.

Other than support for Android 2.3.7, CM 7.1 includes a number of new features such as Bluetooth mouse support, revoking app permissions, camera touch-to-focus, native screenshots in the power menu, and an upgraded kernel.

You can download CM 7.1 from Rom Manager or directly from here.

The team has announced that the upgrade from any previous CM-7 release or nightly build should be smooth and no wipe should be required.
