CyanogenMod 4 Updated to v4.2.15.1

Cyanogen updated his ROM for dream/magic users to Grab it from the ROM db.


—- v4.2.15.1
* Added missing iptables binary
* Few image tweaks from Prash
* Wipe /cache before updating so it doesn’t fill up with DangerSPL
* Kept the OMG CONTROVERSIAL wallpaper.


Now that the dust has settled, it’s time for a new CM build..

This is a heavily modified version of AOSP 1.6 without the proprietary bits (which will back up your proprietary bits and restore them after installing the ROM). In order to get up and running the first time, you’ll need to follow some simple instructions. A great set of documentation has been put together by the community at the CyanogenMod Wiki. Everything you need to know is there!

But first..

#include <std_disclaimer.h>
 * Your warranty is now void.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

The Android devices we own come with many files that can’t be redistributed legally, and as you all probably know, I can no longer include these with my ROMs. So, in order to get up and running, you’ll need a compatible device with a compatible ROM.
