CyanogenMod 7 RC4 Now Available


It’s only been a matter of days since with saw the CyanogenMod team come out with CM7 RC3, and now the popular custom Android build based on Gingerbread has gotten one step closer to a final version with Release Candidate 4 coming out tonight.

RC4 is, unsurprisingly, a relatively small update. After all, these RC builds are supposed to be more or less what you’ll get in the final edition of CyanogenMod 7, and are just to iron out a few of the remaining bugs. Many of the improvements won’t have any impact on your smartphone, as they focus mainly on tablet-based Android devices. That’s not to say that there’s nothing for you here, as a global update has been made to Android’s EGL graphics interface to fix existing bugs.

Some bugs will be staying for the final release; the team isn’t planning on fixing problems with the EVO 4G’s GPS receiver, or audio problems during voice calls on the Nexus One.

We weren’t even sure we’d see an RC4 before the final CM7, and now it’s looking increasingly likely that the final version will be just around the corner, with no more release candidates in its way.
