CyangenmodFor all you folks running the CyaongenMod brand of custom ROM -- and if you're not, you really should give them a shot -- know that CM6.1 has just be released. Released as in stable Android 2.2.1, ready to go, flash at your convenience.

And the list of supported phones is large -- and growing: Nexus One, Droid, Dream/Sapphire, Hero, Desire, Incredible, Espresso (myTouch 3G Slide), Supersonic (Evo 4G), Legend, Vision (G2/DesireZ), Geeksphones ONE, Z71, Wildfire, NVidia Harmony, Ace (Desire HD) and Glacier (myTouch 4G).

For those of you new to the game, CM ROMs are more than custom ROMs, actually. They're built off the publicly available Android code -- that's the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) -- and include a ton of cool tweaks from developers throughout the community. You'll want to check out the CM6.1 changelog for all the goodies, and get to downloading. [CyanogenMod, CM6.1 changelog]

CyanogenMod 6.1 hits stable release


For small releases like this, the FAQ says that just a simple flash over is fine. When it comes to CM7, though... well, prepare for wipe.

Thought the Galaxy S phones were supposed to be supported in this release. I know there is an alpha, but still.

If you look at the WikiPages for Cyanogen there isn't a Download link supplied for the HTC Glacier, and Clockwork ROM manager isn't able to find a link for it. #FAIL in my book.

I was also interested in this but a quick look through the change log indicates that 4g and HDMI haven't been fixed yet.

Can someone tell me if I can flash this and keep HDMI and 4g? Had the hero with cm6 and it was awesome but don't wanna lose these features with my evo. Thanx

The power toggle widgets in the notification window and swipe to remove a single notification is worth more to me than 4G.

Each build is handled by a different dev. The ROM is stable, it still needs to be built for each device. If you read the release you'd see that.

"The MT4G ROM is no where near stable" from Cyanogen themselves not more than 30 minutes ago ;) SHOW ME THE DL FOR THE MT4G AND I WILL BOW BEFORE YOU.

CyaongenMod huh? Sucks when those words are not in the index. ;] Just felt like pointing that out in the most non-jerk type way if possible! lol. Maybe because I am left out with my sgs...;[

All hail cyanogen, this is the best rom out there.

For you fellow evo owners, know that building the 4G from SCRATCH is no easy task-people are working on it though. As for the HDMI, it has already been coded and needs some polish before it will make it into a nightly. FYI-When the HDMI is fixed it will be full hdmi mirroring too :D

I have a CyanogenMod backup from where I flashed my HTC Desire before. I liked it, but it gave me some scrolling issues. I may switch back to that ROM and then try this update.

Only time will tell.

I really hope the phantom voicemail issue has been addressed with this release... that's the only flaw I found with this rom

I finally did a permaroot on my G2 last night for this. Loaded up smooth and looks really cool. I'm still going through it to see everything that is availiable for it. So far i really dig it.

Still no 4G...pass. I understand its a PITA to build support from the ground up. Doesn't change the fact that no 4G = No Go.

If I'm spending an extra $10 a month I damn well am going to get that bandwidth.

am i just missing it or is it not available for the dinc yet? i looked in rom manager and on the website and cant find it.

don't see it up for the DINC yet...not on the site or in ROM manager. I'm running Virtuous, my first ROM ... thinking about trying Cyanogen. It's built off of stock Android, right? So i'll be able to see what it's like without Sense on top of it, right?
