After a series of test builds and release candidates across several target devices, the first stable release of CyanogenMod-6.0 has officially been released! This ROM is based on Android 2.2, and is currently available of the following target devices:
- Google Nexus One
- HTC Aria
- HTC Dream / HTC Magic
- HTC Desire
- HTC Evo
- HTC Hero CDMA
- HTC Hero GSM
- HTC Incredible
- HTC MyTouch 3G Slide
- Motorola Droid
There are surprises all over. Cyanogen and Team Douche have really worked hard to bring these flavors to our devices. Hats off Team Douche!
CM6 boasts a few new features and tweaks. Some features include ADWLauncher 1.1.4 which boasts some impressive add-ons such as the group catalog as well as improved UI settings. Sound and audio focus settings have been added to the CyanogenMod Settings menu and the locale now supports more languages.
Devices running RCs or nightly builds can easily update to CM-6 with ROM Manager or head over to Cyanogen’s forums for their flavors of CM6.
For 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!
When HTC announced the Desire last week at Mobile World Congress, it basically was billed as the Nexus One, with Sense (and a track pad to boot). But those of us with Nexus Ones knew it would only be a matter of time before we’d get to play, and that day is here.
Paul from MoDaCo has been a key player in the Android ROM community, and he’s got a version of the Desire’s ROM up and running on the Nexus One. If you’re not squeamish about rooting and hacking and all that jazz, head here, read the instructions, and give it a shot. We’ll be poring over this ROM for a little while and sharing our impressions. So stay tuned, everybody. (And thanks to everyone who sent this in.)
There’s the number. You can now call Google directly about any issues with your Nexus One.
This is a big step for Google. Can they handle live support? Have you called yet? Was it a good or bad experience? Tell us about it in the comment section!
