I installed Cyanogenmod (version 7) on a motorola atrix about 3 weeks ago now and I’m pleased to report it’s been rock-solid since. No stability issues whatsoever. No loss of functionality either – quite the opposite actually, because some android apps require superusers rights, so they can only work on rooted devices.
An in particular three of these apps stand out.
– AdFree: removes ads in the browser and android apps. (Adblock+ is a possible alternative, havent tried it)
– Adb wireless: enables wireless adb connections. Useful for android devs.
– AirDroid : manage your phone wirelessly from a browser on a remote machine. Works on non-rooted phones – but requires root access for all functions eg. taking screenshots (like the screenshots illustrating this post).
