Android 2.3.4-Based CyanogenMod 7 Nightlies Make Their Way to the Samsung Galaxy S i9000

Are you a Samsung Galaxy S i9000 owner looking for some oh-so-sweet Android 2.3.4 goodness wrapped in CyanogenMod 7 packaging? Well, thanks to XDA forum member codeworkx and the rest of the SGS CM7 team, you can now give this a try. According to the developer, the features of this nightly release are:

  • android 2.3.4
  • nexus s kernel changes (gpu, usb accessory, display panel reset)
  • new gpu drivers
  • changes on autobrightness
  • backlight notification.

While feature packed, this release may not quite be ready for general consumption. As such, the following warning has been included: This release contains a lot of bugs and is purposed for testing only. It’s not ready for daily use! Don’t flash this rom if you aren’t able to solve some problems without our help. If the prospect of Android 2.3.4 tickles your fancy and you’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty with a little bit of troubleshooting, make sure to continue on to the update post. While you are at it, you may want to read up on the ROM’s status in the original post.

[Thanks Michi for the tip.]
