Here in the digital XDA newsroom, we spend our days pouring over an average of 2,500 news items and forum threads every 24 hours. Only the most timely and interesting bits survive the editing process, but the portal's front page still sees weekly counts in excess of 100 posts. This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following the news cycle isn't your full-time job. However, the tech world is vast, and the information must flow. With this in mind, please...
CyanogenMod-6 (Nightly) Now Ported for the Touch Pro
XDANDROID project has grown a lot over the past few months. The devs have been doing a fantastic job in trying to iron out all the bugs in the ports to have better, more stable Android OS on devices not meant for it. On the other side of the coin, you have the infamous CyanogenMod Android roms, which are rated among the best for multiple devices. The time has now come to marry these two fantastic developments. XDA member vatoloco has just released a port of a CM-6 Froyo – Nightly build for the Touch Pro (aka Raphael). While it is still on experimental state, there have been good reports about it so far. However, if you are adventurous enough to try it, bear in mind that it will have some bugs. Other builds have also been ported in this project, such as Myn’s Warm Donut for the Vogue/Polaris/Kaiser, which seem to be more stable as well.
The developer is currently looking for testers, so hop into this project and help out the devs in completing this great port.
So here we go now for CM6-Ports:
The following CM6-Ports are available now:
