Run CM7 While Keeping Things Stock on Your Nexus S

We all love Cyanogenmod roms due to their versatility, speed, and overall good quality. However, there are members who may not want everything that comes with a CM rom and want something a bit more stock. If this describes you in any way, check out what XDA member frank707 has done for Nexus S owners. The mod simply removes and replaces a few apps in the rom, particularly the Launcher, which gets replaced by Android’s stock launcher (which is actually quite nice in Gingerbread if you haven’t had a chance to play with it). So, in essence, it is a mod to remove CM7 specific apps and themes to leave a bare CM7 running in your device. If you wanted something light, this is probably the mod for you.

Please remember that this will have to be reinstalled after every flash, so for those of you hooked on nighties, be aware that you will have to do this over and over again. Please leave some feedback for the dev.

The Cyanogenmod team has made great progress on the Nexus S. This mod is a patch i made for myself originally which is intended keep the look and feel of the stock nexus s gingerbread installation, while not altering any of the core features for Cyanogenmod 7. MOD “A” only replaces the adw launcher for the stock gingerbread launcher. While “CM 7 MOD” removes a handful of CM 7 Apps & Themes to keep the OS as minimal as possible.

You can find more information in the mod thread.
