Official CyanogenMod 7.1 Released For DROIDX, DROID2, Incredible 2 and Others

Huge cheers to the CyanogenMod team for keeping all of our devices worthy of the newest Android build. CyanogenMod 7.1 brings Android 2.3.7 and a handful of new features to all of the hackers out there, some of which you can see us highlighting in this post.

If you can’t wait any longer to get your hands on it, then follow this link, or open up your Rom Manager app and download it from there.

Have fun and don’t forget to make backups.

    droid x isn’t out yet

  • Thawes1024

    What ever happened to the Incredible update???? Did it even come out? Last I heard they pushed it out, but never got it here! WTF

  • Skyskioc

    cant find the link for the DROID X   Can someone help ? thanks

  • no incredible 1 support… 🙁

  • Guest 1

    No problem installing over Project Elite 6.5 with only Dalvik wipe.  Finally fixed my issue with the signal loss after every call.  No more airplane mode on/off.

  • TJ Egan

    If I am running 7.1.0 RC1 (on OG Droid), do I need to wipe and start fresh, or can I install right over?

  • Usmc1488

    How is this news? Am I missing something? Ive been on 7.1 with my DX for a few months now. Is this article supposed to be about the GB kernel thats out?

    I have the Droid incredible and I just installed 7.1 and I noticed that many of my widgets are no longer selectable. Such as agenda widget, Amazon mp3, Evernote and Sync SMS. Any ideas?

  • I installed on my Thunderbolt 2.3.4 gingerbread skyraider Zeus kernel and it just hangs at the HTC logo. Had to go into recovery and g back to skyraider. What am I doing wrong?

    Cant wait for build for the Atrix to come out of Beta.

  • Hard camera button no working on X. No go.

  • boojay

    I’ve reverted back to 7.0.3 via a nandroid restore and can verify that indeed it’s snappier than 7.1.

    my best friend’s mom makes $78 an hour on the computer. She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7587 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here HardRich.com

  • boojay

    I’m on an HTC desire and upgraded to 7.1 from 7.0.3. Is anyone finding it to be just a touch slower now?

  • Hsuede7

    I don’t see a stable release for DROID x, just nightlies like the past few months. Am I misunderstanding something?

  • Telephoneteck

    II have been running this on my Thunderbolt for a few days now. It is very nice, I haven’t run into any issues, except that I can’t use the mobile hotspot with out paying big red.

      USB tethering is better anyways…

  • Bill

    So LED notifications are broken on the Droid Inc?  No matter how many times I uncheck “Pulse LED” under Sound in settings, it reverts back to checked.  Might be going back to 7.0.3 unless someone can help me get my solid green LED back.

    I’ve been running 2.3.7 on my bolt for two weeks now…

  • I was waiting for the official release to install this but with the Galaxy Nexus probably releasing in the next three weeks I don’t think I’m going to bother. Wish we’d get official word on that.

  • Esmccarty09

    Still waiting for droid 3 🙁

  • Adam Smith

    So this is very confusing…. Is 7.1 available for the DroidX? it would seem from the post that it is but I don’t see it showing up in Rom Manager. If there isn’t a stable build why is everyone saying that it is now support?  Does the camera work now?

  • Ionre123

    i have ran plenty of Roms on my Droid X, admittedly bricked it a few times but still managed to get it back to stock. But somehow CM7 I just can’t understand how to install. So complicated IMO, it’s like install this but don’t install this…run this not that…put this here run that…

  • Evil-D

    I have tried using Rom Manager to upgrade from 7.1.0 RC1 to 7.1.0 about 4 times this morning.  It downloads it and reboots and just says HTC Incredible and is unresponsive to any buttons for up to 15 minutes.  I have to pull the battery to bring it back.  I have given up for now.

  • David Hayden

    Sholes getting some more love. This will probably be the final ROM I put on the old gal. 

  • I recently switched from Liberty to CM4DX by Revnumbers and I do not know why I wasted so many months waiting for a Liberty update. DX benchmarks are in the 2034 now with CM4DX which I believe is s “Kang” versions of CM7. When I mean the snappy the whole phone has become snappy from bootup to app launches. I still do not understand how its possible.

    Does anyone know if they plan to make the HDMI workable?

    Only real reason I am on Vortex right now is due to its ability to use HDMI.

  • Scott

    I have a Droid 1 with a previous version of CM7.  Can someone direct me to a resource without having to do a full wipe all over again?  Or is that still the best option?

  • Droid Incredible 2 has broken voice for me.. This is like the last several nightly builds.

  • BBd

    No stable for Droid X yet, not interested.

  • Anonymous

    So the DInc2 has messed up wifi. Does anyone know if it still has the quirky audio bugs?

  • Cjtraas

    Workng like butta’ on my OG Droid.

  • BJ P.

    need support on D3!!!!

  • You will only be able to find the Froyo kernal versions on Rom Manager, for the GB kernal version you will need to download Jrummys Rom Toolbox

  • AlexNotAnder

    Where is the newest build fro droid x?

  • Mygolazo

    anybody know if work in a droid x2,?

  • Anonymous

    for all you Droid X-ers out there try out this for your 7.1 needs, fast stable and great battery life


    this is the gingerbread kernel, not the froyo one

  • Jak_341

    As stated here, the official GB builds from Cyanogen are based on the FroYo kernel. The GB builds have not been merged into the main tree yet. The devs tweeted they should be here soon, as they are still undergoing testing.

    • I’ve been running on the GB kernal version for over a month now, no problems.

      Only thing i miss is the 1% battery increments.

      • AlexNotAnder
      • Jak_341

        I really really want to run it. The lack of a horizontal dialer screen (for use in my car dock) keeps me off of it. Though it seems minor, I use my car dock daily and seeing an improperly formatted screen drives me insane.

        Realistically I probably try it again sometime here soon; probably when the GB kernel gets merged.

        • Jak_341

          Right now, rooted stock .605 with Go Launcher is running pretty well. Of course, I went in and crippled all the ‘bad Blur’.

    Looks like it still has bugs on the Inc2


  • sumyunguy

    I don’t see the Droid X 7.1 available….am I missing something?

    • mysticdarkhack

      You can download it here!



      • How can you tell which is for the X?

        • mysticdarkhack

          Usually every Android device goes by a codename…

          droid X = shadow

          • AlexNotAnder

            there is no nightly release for cm_shadow for 10/10/2011 on the link provided above. Am I looking in the wrong place?

          • mysticdarkhack

            It hasn’t been build yet probably!

          • Thanks, so 115 is the latest-7.1-release?

          • Anonymous

            yes, but fyi that build is still on the froyo kernel.

          • Thanks. How does the kernel effect the phone? Would having it on the GB kernel be better/faster?

          • Does the camera work without the fix yet?

        • Michael Padgett

          This may seem a little unorthodox but I am a DroidX2 owner and want to root my phone and install Cyanogenmod but dont know the first thing about how or what to do.  Would you kjndly steer me in the right direction? [email protected]  Thank you!

    • Adam Neelly

      I don’t see it either

    • The official nightlies for the X run on the Froyo kernel (I think, I know the Droid 2 ones do).

      you can get unofficial builds (That run on the GB kernel) from ROM Toolbox, under RevNumbers’ builds. Or go to the Dev Thread here:


  • mysticdarkhack

    It’s working great on original Droid, just compile latest update this morning, cheers…

  • Gottheguds112

    The regular old CyanogenMod field in my DX ROM Manager is not populating with anything. How could official 7.1 be out when the nightlies still need fixes every flash?

    Or am I way off base and I need to sbf to get the GB kernel and then all of a sudden everything will be wonderful??

  • Anonymous

    Saaaaweeet!! Something for me to do while I wait for my next Super-phone!

  • Anonymous


    • Whaaa, where did you find this build?

      • Anonymous

        ROM Manager…only my favorite app in the world =)!!!

    • Djenks24

      Agreed, several of my complaints about the Thunderbolt have disappeared:)  Call quality still suck though:/

      • Anonymous

        Really??? Working fine for me…Is it possibly the radio you’re using?

        Still using MR2 because I have never had an issue with it.

  • Matt

    Does droid x need to be on a gb kernel to download this?

  • Yeah, except that the Droid 2 and Droid X don’t have stable builds, only nightlies (as they have for months now)

    • Matthew Harmon

      So I’m new to ROMs, is the 115 nightly 7.1?

      • Yes, but the official nightlies for the Droid 2 are designed to run over the Froyo kernel. For unofficial nightlies (That you can install over the GB kernel) get RevNumbers’ builds from ROM Toolbox, or from the rootzwiki dev thread (I would link you, but they’re doing maintenance right now. If I remember, I’ll come back later and post a link to the thread)

        It’s actually here:


        the thread you want is called “[DEV THREAD] CM7 with GB kernel” or something like that. I’m in that thread a lot, I’m havens1515. PM me if you need anything.

      • mysticdarkhack

        You can verified the build here!



  • Chasm31

    This is good. Holding out for liberty though.

  • After dropping the rooted D1 for a temporary X2 until the Nexus, I’ve been removed from the rooting world, but am I seeing a pattern that there aren’t many ROM’s for the X2?

  • is the Bionic going to get supported?

    • mysticdarkhack

      Bionic is still unstable for the time being, it will be awhile before a stable release is out, cheers…
