I’ve been playing with CyanogenMOD CM7 on the T-Mobile myTouch 4G / HTC Glacier for the day and I have to say that I’m impressed.  The release has been built by GridLock and has been updated daily, sometimes even multiple times a day.  You can find out more information on the CommunityRelease site or over in the XDA Developers HTC Glacier section.

Here’s the default home screen you’re presented with once you install the CM7 ROM (except for the background image).

I’m not doing a full review on this pre-release version, but I have done a quick look video for you to see it running and decide if you want to give it a go for yourself.  Enjoy the video below:



This is going to be my daily driver for now. Let us know what you think if you decide to take it for a spin.

    It’s definitely my daily driver. I haven’t even considered going back to Froyo since my initial flash. CM7 has an overall smoother feel to it than CM6.

    im missing the market app on this rom, any idea how to get it back?

      From my experience with CM roms you have to download the google apps addon that is specific to the version you are using and flash it on top. Go back to their page where you downloaded there rom…they usually have a link to download and install the google apps addon.

    Yes, can’t wait until we have an Espresso version of this!! Sweet! I just love sense too much to go to a rom that doesn’t have it.
