CyanogenMod developer and XDA member Koush released an unofficial alpha version, which fixes WiFi and the camcorder for the Nexus S. Obviously, this means that they’re going the right direction. The exact date of release is unknown, but seeing another tweet from CyanogenMod about Gingerbread running on his EVO, we expect it might just be available rather sooner than later.
Of course we’ll keep you updated when the ROM comes available officially. The alpha build for the Nexus S can be found in the CyanogenMod 7 thread.
CM7 is based on the 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) release of Android from Google. We’ve added most of the great features from CM6 you know and love, and many new ones including support for several tablets. We are currently providing support for 30 devices! I continue to be amazed with this community and the dedication of everyone involved. It’s a neverending work-in-progress so if you find a problem, please let us know on our issue tracker. There are a few CM6 features that aren’t part of CM7 yet, but they are in the queue for 7.1 already.
The best way to install CM7 is to use ROM Manager. Detailed instructions for rooting your device can be found at our wiki. Manual downloads can be obtained from our mirror network (powered by TDRevolution). If you need help or support, head over to our forums where you’ll find thousands of other CM users, or you can join us in #cyanogenmod on irc.freenode.net.
If you are upgrading from CM6, we recommend performing a backup with something like Titanium Backup and doing a full wipe before installing CM7.
