After months of development, the CyanogenMod team has released CM7.2 stable for dozens of Android phones and tablets. The operating system is based on Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread and it’s designed to run on a wide range of mobile devices, including many that may not have the resources to run Android 4.0 effectively.

CyanogenMod 7.2 stable for Nexus One

CyanogenMod 7.2 adds support for a number of new devices that weren’t officially supported by the CyanogenMod team before including the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Motorola Atrix 4G, and Sony Ericsson Xperia Live.

The latest operating system features a long list of improvements and bug fixes, but you won’t find many major new features in the change log. Some of the nifty changes include ports of Android 4.0 transition and rotation effects to Android 2.3. There are also new lockscreen styles, support for Bluetooth GPS dongles, and improved WiFi, mouse, and keyboard support.

The developers are also working on CyanogenMod 9, based on Android 4.0. The first release candidates are expected in the coming weeks.
