If you are enjoying my work please consider donating: .
Donations are voluntary but allow me to spend more time on this project.

As a token of my appreciation towards people that have donated for MiniCM, and due to the continuous testing needs of this ROM which is difficult for me to cover daily, I decided to give them a chance to pick up and test new development versions of MiniCM7 starting from 2.0.7. This should allow catching up bugs sooner and hopefully before the actual release which is used by a wide community already.

Obviously, when the build is stable, it will be released on the MiniCM google project page and at xda for everyone to use freely as usual. Not all bugs will be fixed by this process, but it should help making each release build more stable.

I can't be held responsible if this ROM bricks your device or makes it explode in your hands! Use it at your own risk!
