PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It wasn't quick or easy, but we are extremely proud of this release and what it represents for us as a group. The jump from 2.3.7 to 4.0.4 in many ways was a fresh start for this project, and as much as the code changed, the structure and organization of CM as a whole changed as well. It meant a lot of hard work, and late nights, but also a ton of fun. We are in this for the challenge, and the reward is always the satisfaction received when we release it to the masses as a 'stable' product. This RC1 brings us a step forward toward that payoff." CyanogenMod is an absolutely amazing project, an amazing piece of software. Been running CM9 on my SII for months, virtually without issues. It absolutely baffles me OEMs don't just use this instead of their own Sense or TouchWiz crap. This is so much better it's just not funny anymore.

Seconded. Switching to LauncherPro took the Motorola Admiral I tested from painful to pleasant to use. If it weren't for the buggy dialer and texting on that device (which no launcher can fix), I might have kept it.

I did the same for my sister's Nook Color once I put CM7 on it for her. The default launcher in CM7 is just too slow and crash-prone.

You can replace the dialer and texting apps just as easily as the launcher app.

Well as I found out the hard way, changing the dialer and texting "apps" really just changes the UI. The core software, where the crashes and bugs happen, is untouched without a complete ROM replacement.
