CyanogenMod 6 brings G1 and Dream back from the dead with Froyo Rom

CyanogenMod 6 has finally landed, giving the HTC Magic and Dream a taste of Froyo. While a few other ROM developers have been releasing some of their beta builds on Android 2.2 for the two phones, the CyanogenMod team is the first to deliver a nearly perfect build to the public. For those already running on Cyanogen's Eclair build, the update to Froyo is pretty seamless, but you may need to wipe your phone in order for everything to install properly.

Earlier this afternoon, we gave the newest build a try and can say that it's a great first build. We did run into a few issues with various apps not downloading properly from the Android Market and have had our G1 freeze and restart a few times as well. However, we can say that CM6 is definitely faster than CM5 thanks to the new JIT compiler from Froyo. While there are a few things that still need to be ironed out, the team behind CyanogenMod have released a great ROM which is definitely ready for day to day use for people who simply have to have the latest build of Android running on their phone.
