CyanogenFor those of you patiently (or not so much) waiting for Cyanogen and Team Douche to release a semi-official Android 2.2 ROM, it's time to get flashing. CyanogenMod-6.0.0 RC1 was posted up early this morning, with builds for the Nexus One, Dream and Magic, which should cover a good many of us. You can snag the new builds in the usual places, including the CM Nexus One and D/M forums, XDA Developers (N1, D/M) and our favorite, ROM Manager.

For the noobs out there, the CyanogenMod series of ROMs are custom built from the official Android Open Source Project files by trained professionals (professional somethings, anyway), tested and released to the masses. (Check out the full changelog here.) We swear by 'em, and you should, too. [Cyanogen]

Update: A new CM Droid ROM is now in ROM Manager and the other usual places. Huzzah!

CyanogenMod Froyo ROMs hit RC for Nexus One, Dream, Magic (updated)


I think Changelog link is broken... but that's on their end.

I've heard so much about CyanogenMod...
I'm awaiting an Evo release as well cause it seems promising.

404 on the change log Phil.

Is AC starting to have its own Slashdot effect or is their site always that slow?

Really doubt you will see a evo or inc Rom. They got into trouble with HTC so they try not mess with it.

Didnt CyanogenMod put out a statement a few weeks back saying that they were going to do a mod for the Evo? They posted it here on AC, along with just about every other android site, even engadget posted it i think

EVO users, its almost here!!!! Cyanogen tweeted that they have the cameras working. Brace yourselves, the moment is almost upon us!!!!

I'll wait on a more final version before taking the plunge. But from what I've been reading, this seems like it's gonna be worth voiding that warranty ;-)
