CyanogenMod 7.1 Android hack released, HP Touchpad inclusion imminent

This version continues to closely replicate Android 2.3 Gingerbread, now with a new laundry list of feature updates as well as a short list of new devices it will work with, including, yes indeed, the HP TouchPad we've been waiting so long to modify.

OnePlus #DoesSettle: truce with Micromax, CM updates

Contrary to its slogan, it seems that startup OnePlus does know how to settle. Legally, that is.
