Exactly a week after getting rooted and only a few days after getting its very first CyanogenMod nightly release, HTC Desire Z and T-Mobile G2 owners can now upgrade to RC1 (release candidate 1), bringing it up to speed with the rest of the devices supported by the CM team. Apparently, these guys move at light speed.

G2/Desire Z owners should consider themselves lucky, as Cyanogen himself owns a G2 and maintains this CM branch - that's when you know you are in good hands.

Not much has changed in terms of installation instructions, so I'll jump right into it:

This version is a release candidate, but you will find it stable for everyday use.

#include <std_disclaimer.h>
* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.


- First time flashing CM 6 to your G2 (or coming from another ROM)?

1. Unlock/root your device and install Clockwork Recovery via ROM Manager

2. Do a Nandroid backup!


4. Install the ROM

5. Optionally install the Google Addon

- Upgrading from earlier CM6?

1. Do a Nandroid Backup!

2. Install the ROM (your Google apps will be backed up automatically)


- Was it a hard reboot? Get me the file "/proc/last_kmsg".

- Was it a soft reboot or a "boot loop"? Run "adb logcat" and get me the full output.

- Pastebin links preferred

- Please use the issue tracker whenever possible!

Please visit the CyanogenMod Wiki for step-by-step installation walkthroughs and tons of other useful information.

* QuickKeys have not been implemented yet

* Bluetooth Voice Dialer will crash
