Froyo Update Officially Rolling Out For Motorola Droid X

CyanogenMod 6.0.0 Final/Stable For HTC Hero CDMA Released

CyanogenMod 6 is one of the most popular Android custom ROMs, and for a good reason - besides supporting a myriad of devices, it is built from AOSP (Android Open Source Project), which means no extra garbage that normally comes installed by carriers and customizations/improvements for the people, by the people (the CM contributor community is huge).
