Today, in the wee hours of the morning, Cyanogen tweeted what many people have been waiting for: video footage of CM6.1 up and running on his T-Mobile G2.
His explanation for how things work:
Basically what I'm doing is temprooting and rebooting all of userspace with CM on the sdcard. Gonna keep refining it while the really persistent and smart guys from #g2root keep working on a permanent root.
And there you have it.
