The list of phone supported by the developers of CyanogenMod is growing steadily. From the days when it only ran on the HTC Dream and Sapphire "32B" phones (6 months ago) to now....CM has exploded. 

Here is the list of phones CM 6.0 supports:


  • Nexus One

  • Motorola Droid

  • HTC EVO

  • HTC Desire

  • HTC Incredible

  • HTC Hero (GSM/CDMA)

  • HTC Dream

  • HTC Magic

  • HTC Aria

  • MT3G Slide

    cyanogen rom is custom rom so you load froyo even ur phone maufacture dont have plan to release it

    in theory froyo can be install onto every android machine it's just the lazy manufacture

    some custom rom's got better kernal with build in overclock ability

    so basically it make ur phone run faster like a real android phone :p

    Like Dannywii said... :-)  

    Longer version: Because the source code for Android is publicly available, and many phone vendors release the source code for their device drivers as well, it is possible for a competent developer or team of developers to put together their own systems for use on a given phone.

    "Cyanogen" is Steve Kondik. His is one of the more famous ROMs for Android phones. Partly due to being arguably the best on the first-ever Android phone - the HTC G1 (sold by T-Mobile in the US and compatible with Vodafone here). Also partly due to Kondik's commitment to quality and his obvious professionalism. He's become a real leader and motivator and mentor to a growing cadre of rapidly-improving developers ("TeamDouche") across a variety of phones....

    Over the past year it has not been unusual for a CyanogenMod ROM to be superior to the ROM that was flashed on the phone by its maker. If CM 6.0 (Froyo - 5.0 was Eclair which is Android v2.1) is anything to go by, this will be true again.

    CM 6.0 RC3 is - in a word - awesome. Loads of new features and functions added by the CyanogenMod team. Most notable so far is adding 720p HD video capability to the Nexus One running CM6 RC3. The list of additional features is huge.
