CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Instructions:

First time flashing CyanogenMod 7 to the HTC Evo Shift 4G, or coming from another ROM?
  1. Root the device and install ClockworkMod Recovery. Instructions are available here.
  2. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.
  3. Format the system, data & cache partitions of your device.
  4. Perform a factory reset.
  5. Flash CyanogenMod.
  6. Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package.
Upgrading from earlier version of CyanogenMod 7?
  1. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.

Issues?

+1 - CM is really the one ROM to rule them all. I can't use a different ROM for more than 8hrs before starting to miss CM7. A large part of my decision to get the Shift was actually based on the probability of CM support.

Thanks so much to all the CM team and Toastcfh in particular! Gonna try and send a donation this payday. Gonna lie and tell the wife it's for pr0n

Question
I noticed that the instructions for upgrading from another version of CM7
It doesn't tell us to wipe.

Would it be better to wipe cache/full wipe etc? Or just flash 7.1 over 7.0.3?

You should be fine just wiping dalvik and cache. But make a nandroid first. If it goes wrong just restore your nandroid and do a full wipe (system, data, etc). But most likely you'll be fine without the full wipe.
