CyanogenMod 7 with Gingerbread Now Available for Galaxy Tab
If you own a Galaxy Tab, you can now enjoy Android Gingerbread in form of CyanogenMod 7: XDA developer Technomancer is working on getting a completely stable build with Google’s latest Android version, 2.3.2. Most basic functions work, but we warn you that this build might not fit your needs as there are still some things that are quite buggy. The developer is still working on it though and has already made some good progress – and seeing he’s updating everything quite frequently, we expect a stable build will only be a matter of time.
