[Rom 2.2] Cyanogen MOD 6.1 for Z71 - Final Version

Cyanogen MOD 6.1.0 for Z71, Optimus / Orange Boston, Apanda A60, Motorola XT502, Wellcom A88, ... - Final Version (12/05/2010)

"CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android 2.2 (Froyo) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.
his is an AOSP-based build with extra contributions from many people which you can use without any type of Google applications. I found a link from some other project that can be used to restore the Google parts, which can be found below or elsewhere in the thread. I've still included the various hardware-specific code, which seems to be slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Visit the CHANGELOG for a full list of changes and features!"

"Please visit the CyanogenMod Wiki for step-by-step installation walkthroughs and tons of other useful information.

Gabriel said...

slovak lenguage?

Rogério said...

Thousand thanks! You are the man! :)

Nick said...

Still the following issues on Spice Mi300
1) When you plug in or plug out the head set, it says "SD card removed unexpectedly"
2) You cannot answer the calls with headset button.
3) Phone reboots randomly (though it happened only twice in 12 hrs, since I installed CM6)
I feel that this is same as the Nightly release 15, which I had installed previously.

work good , thx all developer

António Neves said...

Wifi not working good in my boston with this version. Did a factory reset and upgraded from oficial 2.1 optimus rom and followed the steps in the tutorial installing the 226d rom, and then clock work and the cyanogen. How can I fix the wifi?

wtfro said...

Work fine on my orange boston upgraded from vanila 1.1.

Question: Is there any posibility to do a downgrade to 2.1 stock?

@wtfro: Yes, you can downgrade to 2.1 Stock, I've done it after trying the nightly builds, refer to prev posts for details

Orange Boston-Ro Updated from Firetrap Vanilla 1.2, strong performance, but 2 issues: 1. only 4 sensors detected, 2. the most problematic - the phone doesn't enter sleep mode, and the battery lasts for 8 hours. On different chargers, the percent of the battery isn't stable. The only charger that works good is the original one from Gigabyte. Any idea how to identify which application keeps the phone alive? 10x

Nick said...

Guys, is the headset button working on Boston or any other device with this mod? I cannot answer calls using the headset button.

Adrián Chapela said...

This version is a disaster. Battery flow in 8 hours, sometimes wifi doesn't work and after two days using, browser doesn't work...

Adrian said...

Orange BOSTON
1. I installed the original image.
2. after I installed RomManager, it asks for root permissions.....I'm stuck here. Any ideas? (I tried Universal Androot and it does not work)

Ricardo A. F. Santos said...

Adrian i have the same problem..... lol help!

Mysterious Boy said...

same problem here i m unable to root the orange rom (tried universal androot as well as super one click root)

Bogdan said...

try to use optimus boston 2.1 image, then put firetrap 1.2, and after this you can put CyanogenMod. It has everything. But CyanogenMod 6.1 has bugs, doesn't see the proximity sensor and the phone doesn't enter sleep mode.
If you want to go back from cyano, you will have to reflash Firetrap recovery.img from fastboot, this one supports RUT, it seems to be the only one. Good Luck!

Easy said...

Thanks for your effort on Android 2.2.

I am using Vibo A688, it almost works perfect.
excellent performance, beautiful interface and full functioned.

But it still has some problem when operating in viewing pictures.

I use the build in program to view picture and it will always force crash when I enter to the program or, better, I can do some operate and then crash.

I use Chinese(Traditional) language and Kinston microSDHC Class4 8G.

I am not sure if there will be another version help it but still thank you for all of it.

ginjamaka said...

works perfect on my XT502 :) I just flashed over the ROM that came with my moto :D

Cesc said...

yea XT502 works fine, but just two slight concerns:
1. is it possible to wake the screen using the green call button instead of the trackball which is harder to press?
2. while messaging, its not possible to select contacts from phonebook and have to enter the number manually.

ginjamaka said...

@cesc I think this "final" version has still got some bugs. Battery drain is massive!! I went to work with full battery, did some texting, one call played some music. When I got home batt was at 50% :O I went back to stock ROM on my XT502, flash doesnt even work on this cyanogen mod :( I am still stuck with the stupid clockwork mod recovery too! can't even let me update nor flash original recovery, wich sux

Cesc said...

yes exactly! and the UI turns out to be super lagging as well. i'm thinking of switching back to stock ROM since i'm quite happy with everything except that eclair does not support apps2sd and no flash..

edith said...

I am try CM 6.1 stable and I can't find settings Network for HSPDA only,..
try again build 51, I can't find to,.

so back to CML 1.3 :(

ginjamaka said...

atleast u can go CML I can't even flash stock ROMS anymore with RUT always gives me error, I might think fastboot is screwed on my phone, thnx to clockworkmod recovery :( I even tried with other recoveries wich RUT can see my phone but always ends up in error messages :'(

lheigh said...

t9 keyboard is not available on this mod version? I tried using apps but the input method seems not working...

Sascha Passi said...

I flashed my Boston since 5 minutes and i am really suprised and hapy that the rom works fine! thanks to the coder!!!!
