Cyanogens CyanogenMOD 4.1.99

I loaded up Cyanogens new CyanogenMOD 4.1.99 last night and it seems pretty smooth. I haven’t had time to play around too much but I had no immediate issues that would stop me from running this ROM as a daily platform. I configured all my emails, including Exchange without a problem, logged into the Market and GMail and had a couple of conversations using GTalk.

And now the good stuff:

* UNIVERSAL! Runs on both Dream and Magic 32B
* Based on Android 1.6, many bugfixes and enhancements from AOSP, XDA, and me
* Highly optimized kernel with many extra modules and BFS
* Enhanced ramdisk which uses optimal mount options and smart startup
* Includes E2FSProgs for checking and converting Ext filesystems
* Apps2SD is automatic! All you need is a second partition (ext).
* Launcher with 5 screens and auto-orientation and compact drawer layout
* Clean filesystem shutdown at poweroff/reboot, and fsck at boot (no FS corruption!)
* Includes T-Mobile IM application, Amazon MP3 store, and Work Email (MS Exchange support)
* Does not require “DangerSPL”
* Includes a massive APN list
* Maximum CPU scaling frequency set to 528MHz with latency tweaks
* Various enhancements to the Settings app including extra partition space
* Compcache 0.6 enabled by default (if no userinit is present)
* Phone app enhancements by cytown
* Loccy’s “BetterBrowser”
* MMS enhancements from rgv151
* FLAC audio support thanks to kroot
* Commandline extras: powertop, htop, nano, busybox, openvpn, openobex tools
