Cyanogen releases a fairly stable Android 2.2 ROM for the T-Mobile G1
The wait is over, folks. CyanogenMod 6 has arrived to sooth your self-inflicted wounds, and bring the latest Android version to your trusted old T-Mobile G1. If you happen to be running Android 2.1 already on the handset, the update process should be quite easy.

AndroidandМe is reporting that the upgrade is very stable for a first release, despite a few freezes and restarts it brought upon their G1, but overall ready for everyday use. CyanogenMod 6 has been notably faster than the previous version thanks to the quick JIT compiler in Froyo; moreover, Wi-Fi and the camera now work as they are supposed to. The main glitch is access and installation of various applications from Android Market, which seems to be hit-and-miss with the new ROM.
