    Let’s hope he can influence the amount of shite that manufactures put on their phones.

    I’ve recently purchased a HTC Desire S with orange on contract and the amount of pure crap the phone comes bundled with! Orange seems to have duplicated all of the HTC and Android Standard apps, and widgets.

    I’ve got 4/5 clock widgets, 2 calendars, 3 mailbox applications, 2 browsers.

    My Samsung Galaxy Spica wasn’t much better. And of course it’s all built into the OS so I cant remove any of it: (

    I use SamdroidMod for my Spica, it's based on CyanogenMod, but isn't official seeing that Cyanogenmod don't support it. I'm not all that worried because CyanogenMod has grew beyond the hands of one single modder.

    I think people should check out what a guy that goes as Tom3q is doing. I find what he's doing more amazing than any mod. He's completely rewriting all the drivers for my phone.

    Glad for him its a great ROM. But on the other side of that I hope CyanogenMod continues strong because it is fantastic!

    ’ ’ ’ ’ ’ ’ < does not work on your main page it comes up like >> as Squares

    it will be intresting on what he can improve

    only thing CyanogenMod Needs to add is the Option to Turn off HSDPA but still have basic 3g UMTS on (HSDPA Sucks bat like no man my HTC HD1 was very good with HSDPA off), and add the option to Force 3g only as its like samsung phones you can only tick 2g only on CyanogenMod my HTC desire can force 2g only / 3g only or auto 2g/3g)

    Running CM7 on my motorola defy and it's awesome. Can't see this affecting CM in the future as there are a whole team of talented people behind it.

    I have it on my LG GT540 (which only costs $120), allowing me Android 2.3.5 instead of the default 1.6 (yuck), and it is nothing short of fantastic. The performance with the SwiftDroid flavor is incredible and outdoes default phones that are normally at least 50% faster thanks to OS tweaks.

    Good for him, I'm using CM7.1 on my ZTE Blade and am very happy with it. Let's just hope he continues to support the mod.

    Awesome for him and everyone else, fantastic mod and God knows Samsung desperately needs his talent considering how much their stupid buggy "TouchWiz" UI sucks. Too bad I'm already going back to HTC, who actually know how to make phones and not just pretty displays.

    Wish I could get a custom ROM on my Desire - it comes with so much crap on it that like to autostart when it detects a net connection it kills the battery.

    I DON'T EVEN HAVE ANY STOCKS, WHY MUST I HAVE A STOCKS APP?!
