CM1

Looks like CyanogenMod 6, Android's most popular ROM, has made its way out of the RC's and into final release. I've been running CM6 on my EVO for a little over a month now, and I love it. And as most people know, CM6 now covers a fair number of devices:

The above links lead to the CM6 info/download post on CM forums. The devices with no hyperlink don't have CM6 final yet - though they may have experimental builds (for example, the Incredible is on RC3). Heads-up though, it looks like there are a ton of people downloading - I'm getting 23 KBPS right now.

CM2

As usual, if you're running CM6 and like it, we encourage you to send a few dollars the dev's way. There's a donate link right on the CyanogenMod homepage, and donations are welcomed no matter the size.
