Android (rooted): The latest version of CyanogenMod, the popular Android ROM, doesn’t include any huge changes, but instead focuses on adding small tweaks and settings that make Android more configurable and perform a little bit better.
CyanogenMod 7.1 updates your phone to Android 2.3.7, and brings in a ton of small changes and conveniences, which are what really make custom ROMs great. Some of our favourite changes in this release include:
- Improve ADWLauncher scrolling/zoom performance
- Option to disable vibration while in-call
- Improve notification swipe-to-clear
- Wake on volume key option
- Support for revoking application permissions
- Control brightness by sliding on statusbar
- Option to hide hold button during call
- Support for launching apps via gestures in the background
- Screenshot feature via power menu
- Mute camera shutter option
In addition, this release brings CyanogenMod to a ton of new devices, both old and new, like the Samsung Galaxy S, the Motorola Droid 2 and the Motorola Droid X, among others.
