Cyanogen’s ROM Now Features Improved Android Market

new_android_marketIf you’re at all involved in Android, chances are pretty good you’ve heard of Cyanogen’s ROM.  If you’ve got a rooted handset, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ve come across the ROM at some point.  It has emerged as the premier ROM for Android handsets, often including features that have yet to make their way to official builds.

The latest build is a prime example of rooted users getting early access to upcoming enhancements.  We know the Android Market is getting a makeover with 1.6 as indicated directly by Google.  How would you like to play with it today?  Grab the newest build (4.1.11.1) and check it out.  Warning: It’s an experimental ROM running within a rooted environment.  This means you’re doing a couple of things your phone may not like.  It’s not covered by any guarantee nor can you get true tech support from it.  Proceed with caution.

If you’re one of those who have liberated your Android handset, grab the ROM and check out the cool stuff coming from Donut!  That is provided you haven’t done so already.
