CyanogenMod 7: Be Ready for it! Nexus S Alpha Version Already Released
They’re almost there: the CyanogenMod developers are working hard on the new Gingerbread-running CyanogenMod 7. On Christmas day, Cyanogen tweeted that CyanogenMod 7 wasn’t officially released yet because they hadn’t fixed the camcorder yet. On that same day, the camcorder got fixed. CyanogenMod developer and XDA member Koush released an unofficial alpha version, which fixes WiFi and the camcorder for the Nexus S. Obviously, this means that they’re going the right direction.
The exact date of release is unknown, but seeing another tweet from CyanogenMod about Gingerbread running on his EVO, we expect it might just be available rather sooner than later.
Of course we’ll keep you updated when the ROM comes available officially. The alpha build for the Nexus S can be found in the CyanogenMod 7 thread.
