    Looks like Cyanogen is at it again! 6.1 looks to bring a ton of new features and speed improvements. I'd give it a whirl, but I just set up CM 6.0 with Incognito yesterday. Everything sounds pretty enticing, though, so I may just bite the bullet and run it with no theme just to see how it goes!

    It's not out for the droid yet is it? I don't see it in ROM Manager and someone at the cm forums said they are still working out a few bugs. Shouldn't be long...

    Crap. You're right. I didn't notice that, but hopefully it'll be there soon.

    If anyone is interested in 6.1 RC1, keep in mind that it's still experimental (hence the "RC1"). If you can't wait for it, you might want to check out the latest nightly build (which is also experimental) at the CM forums. Right now build 160 is the newest and it's pretty much RC1.

    I tried build 160 and it broke my wireless. Loaded build 159 on top of it w/o wiping and its running smooth.

    RC1 for the droid is up here:

    Index of /motorola/sholes

    Koush said he accidentally typed RC0, so the "update-cm-6.1.0-RC0-Droid-signed.zip" is the one you want. Keep in mind this is the Release Candidate, not a final build.

    This did not like my droid at all. Alot of stuttering, then won't go past the M logo on the next reboot. Apps disappearing, and others losing widgets even though they are installed. Some of the new features were pretty sweet.

    Standard CM upgrade rules apply... have you wiped data and cache? Stuttering is common after the first boot while all the apps that were wiped are reinstalled. Once everything is reinstalled it should run very smooth... but this is a RC candidate.

    I should add that it's been running great for about 5 hours now. I did not wipe my data since I am coming from a nightly build.

    I rarely use the camera, so I'm not sure what's new. There has been a lot of talk at the CM forums about improvements involving autofocusing. There appears to be a new overlay bar with flash, gps, shutter, zoom, and brightness options. This may have already existed, but I never noticed it before.

    I am not new to CM, and as such installed it correctly.

    Kousch has a fix posted to the stuck on M issue posted on rom manager in the market. He says to flash SPR then back to CWM. This took care of this issue for me. I have also read that going back to an older gapps helps with the missing apps. I am having better luck after flashing back to CM6, updating all apps, then installing RC1 w/o a wipe. It is better, but there are still apps missing.

    Installed, haven't attempted to reinstall apps with My Backup Pro yet. I have noticed that it looks like my notifications icons were leftover from the Incognito theme I was using on CM6.0. And yes, I did wipe data and cache.

    Definitely. I am unable to download, find in market, restore with Titanium some apps, eg, Twitter, tweetdeck, etc. Other than this, the CM 6.1 RC1 runs very fast and smooth.

    The solution others have used to fix the missing apps issue is to flash an older version of google apps add-on.

    RC3 is running GREAT for me! All the apps I use daily (including myverizon work fine)

    No Slosh, no FM radio...

    Is bluetooth fully functional in RC3? RC1 and RC2 has serious bluetooth issues.

    I think he mistyped and meant to say RC2. There is no 6.1 RC3 afaik. There was RC0, RC1 (which has been since pulled from the d'l server) and now RC2.
