CyanogenMod 7 Visits the HTC Thunderbolt


CyanogenMOD banner

Among the many phones rolling out over the next couple of months a popular theme is found. There’s still a lot of them debuting with Froyo builds. The HTC Thunderbolt was a victim of this, right in the wake of select Gingerbread updates a new flagship device emerges with the same ol piece of software. Granted the Thunderbolt came sporting a second gen processor and additional RAM making it run circles around predecessors, it was still capable of so much more. Most of the popular devices already had successful versions of CyanogenMod 7  making them speedy, efficient and damn sexy might I add. Leaving the Thunderbolt with another disadvantage. Or maybe not?

Although HTC has said that Verizon’s first LTE device would be getting a swift upgrade to Gingerbread it looks like TeamDouche is going to beat them to the punch as an Alpha version of the popular AOSP ROM is now available for this phone. As we’re seeing with many phones now that CM7 has reached a stable release, CyanogenMod is spreading like hot doughnuts in a police station.

If you’d like to check functionality of this new build or just simply read more information check out the XDA thread. Just a reminder this is an alpha build, do not expect to get a daily driver out of this.

I'm an avid technology lover. My first Android device was a G1; I fell in love (except for the battery), next I got a Samsung Captivate; error in judgment on my behalf, now I've moved on to the MyTouch 4G; which I absolutely love. What started with me just needing some kind of phone to use, i.e. free G1, ended with a new addiction.... I also enjoy long walks on the beach and luxurious bubble baths.... Oh wait.
