CyanogenMod: 8 Android Phones Getting Froyo Early

Now that the Android 2.2 source code is available, the development community can begin to tear it apart and cook up some custom ROMs for those users with rooted (hacked) phones. The team behind the popular aftermarket firmware distribution CyanogenMod is already hard at work and they are racing to get Android 2.2 on as many devices as possible.

CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik recently tweeted that they plan to target up to eight separate Android phones for their next version (CM6) which is built from the Android 2.2 source. No release date has been provided, but you can sure bet it will be out before the "late summer" target of new phones like the Droid X.

Hacking your Android phone might not appeal to most users, but for some this could be their only taste of FroYo. It is widely expected that the first Android phone (the G1) will not receive Android 2.1, but T-Mobile has yet to officially put the phone to rest.

For the latest on this version of CyanogenMod, visit the official site and follow @cyanogen on Twitter.

Target devices for CyanogenMod 6 Froyo include:

  • HTC Nexus One
  • HTC Desire
  • HTC Dream (G1)
  • HTC Magic (myTouch 3G)
  • HTC myTouch 3G Slide
  • HTC EVO 4G
  • HTC Hero (CDMA)
  • Motorola Droid
