CyanogenMod 6.1.0 Stable Releases Falling From The Heavens

If you own a rooted Android device, chances are CyanogenMod is a familiar, perhaps even a common, almost “household” name.  I’ve personally rooted phones for the sole purpose of installing CM6.  A modders dream & a carriers nightmare.  The team is constantly finding ways to improve & develop things that some could argue should have been included in the official stock rom.  Needless to say, we here at Android Guys absolutely love #TeamDouche & the whole CyanogenMod Crew.

While you are watching the SNF game between the Steelers & Ravens, the crew is hard at work putting out updates.  Version 6.1.0 is out for a handful of devices & more continue to fall from the cloud.  Devices from the original Moto Droid to the HTC EVO 4G have been updated.  So far 6  have been updated & there may be more to come.  You can check the #TeamDouche mirrors to see if your device received the update.  Don’t forget to visit the Official Changelog for more information.

    All the EVOs built starting in late October have new camera hardware that doesn’t work in CM6.1.

    Seems strange to call it stable IMO.

      The tone of your comment would have more effect if directed at HTC for not releasing the source code for the latest kernel.

      i cant confirm, but this might be good news for you. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=9613042&postcount=13827

        Honestly, I’m not emotional about it. I just think if the release doesn’t work with the camera in all EVOs, they should hold back 6.1 stable for the EVO until it does. It wouldn’t be the end of the world if 6.1 came out for other models now and the EVO later on.

        It’s just that a “stable” version being released even after we know about the new camera hardware makes me paranoid that the issue will fall by the wayside.

        Actually I just read a post on XDA from someone saying they have an 004 EVO with hboot 2.02 and the camera DOES work in CM6.1 stable. I’d love to be proven wrong here.

        I still love CM. It’s sad that CM without a working camera is still better than a Sense experience.

      Team Wiskey has a nice Obsidian 2.2 ROM for the Vibrant ;) I find it to run real smooth….

      Soon…

      I think the very-soon-to-be-released official 2.2 update will help with solving a lot of the issues with the SGS hardware.

      Besides, there are a few mostly-working betas around.
