A new update of Cyanogen 7 has been released, fixing a few bugs, adding a few new features, and bringing Gingerbread to the Motorola Droid. The new release, CM7.0.2, offers a built in theme engine, GPS fixes, a fix to the proximity and light sensor, as well as tablet and notification tweaks. The release comes fresh on the heels of 7.0.1 which was announced at the beginning of the month. But users complained of several bugs and the mod was prompted pulled and polished to get it ready for prime time.


In addition to the Droid, Nexus One users can give the ROM a whirl, as well as the HTC Hero, Desire, Evo, and several others. Even tablet fans looking to boost their Android OS can use it, as there is support for models like the ViewSonic G-Tablet and even the NOOKColor. There's also multi language support of over 15 languages.

Droid, and other users looking to bring Gingerbread to their phones can get the new ROM at Cynogen's mirror site here. Users are advised to use ROM Manager to install the ROM. And if you're using a previous version, you should get a notification that a build is ready for your device. One thing though, is that this may be the last update for awhile, as it's pretty stable, offers most features and baring any further bug fixes, it looks to be pretty well cooked.
