The CyanogenMod 6.1 Release Candidate is now available for rooted Android devices via the Rom Manager app. This isn’t the final CyanogenMod 6.1 release, but should be stable enough to use full-time (of course your mileage may vary depending on device, phase of the moon, etc). In addition to bug fixes, CM 6.1 includes several new features and performance enhancements.
Users of older, slower Android devices will be happy to know that CM 6.1 claims an “insane performance boosts on all platforms”, as well as better battery management features and an improved built-in camera app. If you need even more performance, the CyanogenMod team recommends the excellent SetCPU app to overclock your device for even more performance, at the cost of battery life.
As always with aftermarket Android ROMs, please check to make sure your device is supported before attempting an installation! Are you planning to install the CM 6.1 RC on your device? Let us know in the comments!
