CyanogenMod is an alternative firmware which is available for Android powered smart-phones and tablets. It is based on the Android Open Source Project and is a highly customizable firmware. Basically, it provides several additional features and enhancements which you will not find in stock Android ROMS.
The HTC Sense, Motoblur and Timescape interfaces are brilliant eye-candies for Android users [some readers might disagree – Ed], but they are quite slow. CyanogenMod ROMs are lightweight, stable and fast — without altering the core Android interface — which is why most people prefer this particular ROM over other stock ROMs.
A stable release of CyanogenMod 9 is on its way, but while we wait, let’s take a detailed look at what makes CM7 so great.
DSP Manager is a fantastic application which can be used to achieve vibrating bass even with your stock headphones.
DSP Manager is like the HTC Beats sound enhancer, but taken to a whole new level. Sadly, this awesome application is not available in the Google Play store and you will need to put in a little bit more effort in order to get it working for your phone. Why? Because it’s part of CyanogenMod and will not work on stock ROMs by default.
However, in this article, I’ll show you how you can install the app on vanilla Android and HTC Sense, which should help you get it running on your own device regardless of which ROM you’re running – as long as you have root access.
