By on April 26th, 2011

It was during the middle of this month that the CyanogenMod team released the final version of CM7. CM7 is based on AOSP Android 2.3 Gingerbread with some nifty tweaks and features pre-baked.

Now, just a couple of weeks later on, the CyanogenMod team has released a CM v7.0.2, which fixes a lot of bugs, and brings support for the Motorola Droid. The bug fixes include some GPS issues and proximity sensor issues, which most of the CM7 users were facing.
