CyanogenMod has just rolled out a spanking new version that will update its platform and deliver additional features as well as functions to a bunch of other Android-powered devices. We’re talking about CyanogenMod 7.1 here, where the open source code will be made accessible to two dozen more devices with a substantial change log including FM support and Bluetooth tethering amongst others. Those who are interested to hear about the change log can check it out here, where the most important change in this update seems to be CyanogenMod’s ability to support Android 2.3.7, which so happens to be the latest update to the Gingerbread platform.
For folks who use CyanogenMod, have you installed it already? If you did, then would you like to share what your favorite addition to the code base is? Some of the new devices include most of the entire range of the Samsung Galaxy S series, including both HTC Incredible handsets as wel as the latest models of the Motorola Droid series. Not only that, CyanogenMod ends up being more mainstream as Sony Ericsson offers 20 more devices to the CyanogenMod team alongside technical assistance and compatible hardware drivers. Having said that, seven of the 24 devices supported come from Sony Ericsson’s Experia line.
