CyanogenMod 7.2 Hits Release Candidate Stage – Backported ICS Features, 20 New Devices Added, and More

No, it’s not CM9, but that shouldn’t those of you running previous versions of CM7 from updating. In its first release candiate, CyanogenMod 7.2 now supports an additional 20, includes a set of backported Ice Cream Sandwich features, a sweet new predictive dialer, stability on the SD card and notifications front, and more. Another exceptional release while we await the arrival of CM9. Go get some.

Via:  CyanogenMod [Changelog]

Cheers Jigga_Z!

    Sounds like any devs that are modding CM for other devices are welcome to contact CM and become part of the team…

  • Thanassi

    yet another reason I regret purchasing a Droid 3

  • Joe Cross

    T-bolt still has no love

    anyone know if this works on the gingerbread kernal?

  • thesaber2000

    Any chance i could get this on my gnex? Wonder how battery life is on a gb rom?

  • MicroNix

    Man, the D3 really got snubbed by a lot of devs.  Another pre-req for the next phone: massive developer support (aka Nexus)

  • Website Down = (

  • ScottfromGA

    so I’m assuming this ROM will not work for the Kindle Fire? CM7 is what I have on mine now…wouldn’t mind updating it.

  • No

    I’m tired of CyanogenMod… it’s so unreliable.. sure it’s great when it works but when something breaks and you ask them when they will fix it they don’t feel like here anything about it and when you ask if it’ll be fixed it’s like you told them to go F themselves or something… i’m over it 😀

  • installed it over the weekend. I like the soothing blue ui

    CM7, proof that locked bootloaders suck.

    • kixofmyg0t

      CM7, proof that CyanogenMod as a whole is unreliable garbage and the BEST versions are unofficial kangs. Hell they get more support than CM itself. 

      Locked bootloaders dont matter anyway. Im saying this because my locked Droid X and Droid 2 Global are running CM9 ports right now.

        CM 7.2 RC1 is working perfectly on DInc. Just dropped $10 into their bucket.

      • TheDude

        And what doesn’t work on any the CM9 port?

  • sc0rch3d
  • Does anyone know if the Droid X on the GB kernel will ever get this version?

  • I cant believe still no love for the rezound =.  Makes me sad in my pants

    • David Hayden

      I know, it kills me not having a nice stable CM ROM on this phone. But at least the Droid is still getting support, that’s pretty cool.

    • New_Guy

      I believe it’s because they are working on CM9 for it. This is why the Thunderbolt is not on the list as well.

    • brando56894

      You just saved me the time of looking at the list lol Check out NilsP’s Business Sense 3.0, it has the new base and its pretty awesome.

  • AlexKCMO

    Any list of what those 20 devices are? 

    Website is currently down :(.

  • Matthew Harmon

    Any chance someone can post installation steps?  I have downloaded to my SD card, is it as simple as booting into recovery and applying the zip?  (Sorry, newbie)…

    • Yup! Wipe everything first to be safe 🙂

      • Matthew Harmon

        I didn’t do a full wipe, will I miss parts of the update if I don’t?

        • qbix

          Sounds like you were able to boot your device normally. It’s not always necessary to wipe data+cache when going from a point release to another point release, however, it’s highly recommended. If it was me, I’d start from the beginning, just make sure you back up everything you need with TitaniumBackup and also do a Nandroid backup to be safe. I find that everything runs so much smoother right after wiping.

    • make sure you NANDROID BACKUP!!
