CyanogenMod is one of the most popular custom ROMs in the Android modding scene. The ROM is based on stock Android (AOSP) and is completely free from any kind of bloat ware. Today, the community behind Cyanogen – consisting of 10000 monkeys and 10000 typewriters’ – has released the final version of CyanogenMod 6.1.
CM6.1 is based on Android 2.2.1 and includes many nifty features like continuous auto-focus, dual-mode snooze, EMMC support and Lock screen gestures. Interested users can find the huge change-log here. The new CyanogenMod 6.1 ROM also supports some new devices like the Desire HD and the Desire Z/T-Mobile G2/HTC Vision.
Sadly, the CM community still does not support one of the most popular Android phones out there the Samsung Galaxy S series. However, a few people have been trying hard to port CM6 to the Galaxy S. They have already released a couple of beta releases as well. Hopefully, by the year end we will see a working CM6.1 ROM for the Galaxy S handsets.
