CyanogenMod 7.2 comes to 70 devices with over 20 new features
Many of you may be waiting on CyanogenMod 9, but development on that is highly dependent on Ice Cream Sandwich source code being released by manufacturers. In the meantime, Team Douche is still hard at work on CyanogenMod 7 and has just pushed out the first release candidate for the new version, 7.2. 

The update is available for 70 devices, which we won't list here, but it does cover most of the most popular phones you would expect, including the Motorola ATRIX, which is one of the 14 newly supported devices. The bigger news is in the updates added to the new version. One of the most interesting is that the phone dialer is now predictive, which could be quite a nice feature. The update also includes a number of features backported from Ice Cream Sandwich, like the new transition and rotation effects. 

It looks like quite a nice update, and word has it that this will end the work on CM7.x, which was based on Gingerbread. And, now all the effort moving forward will go towards CM9, which is based on Ice Cream Sandwich.

I really don't get all of the hype and coverage of Cyanogen Mod roms. I have never, ever had any success with their roms. Sure, they flashed OK, but I've always had problems with them. Wi-fi turning on and off, random reboots, phone freezing when I try to wake it from sleep. I've tried installing multiple versions on three different android phones (Galaxy S, G2x, Triumph) and have had nothing but problems. I'm glad it works for other people, but, my favorite ROMs have come from Team Whiskey, Lotherius, and now, the Minimal Triumph ROM on the Triumph is really awesome.

How does Cyanogen survive? I mean they are a team working making free custom rom. Do they have side job? Or Donation?
