Cyanogenmod 7.2.0 Release candidate ready for testing


Cyanogenmod, the popular android based firmware developing community, has released their latest version. This version, 7.2 RC1 is based upon Google’s Android release 2.3.7 and is the final release on 7.x series. Cyanogenmod official blog reports it has added a couple of backported features and fixes from Android 4.0, Icecream sandwitch. One of the major bug fix it claims is about SD card ringtones. Its earlier versions sufered from misteriously vanishing ringtones from SD card.

Cyanogenmod added support for nealy 20 new devices adding a sum of 70 in supported devices list! I tested it is my idea blade and found working well. Though it is crashing at times, its overall performance is satisfactory. If you are not interested in tesing, do not use this release candidate and install previous stable version.
