    @furbearingmammal(or anyone else with insight),

    Im extremley curious, and NOT to hijack this thread, but can you(or someone) explain to me what 'nightlies' are as far as kernels are concerned?
    (can't seem to find any info about what they ACTUALLY are. #noob)

    Well basically a bot builds a new nightly every night which are considered experimental and not stable, but they usually are pretty stable and sometimes have new features, sometimes a new feature will break other things (hence the experimental status) like the stock kernal that comes with CM6, so if you decide to run a nightly you do so at your own risk, there isn't really any official support.

    Thx mattg1. I can conclude enough info from that. I was just kinda lost as to the whole "nightly" deal but thank you for clearing that up for me. :)

    Yea sometimes features are half way functional, etc. They say "flash at your own risk" but there really isn't too much to worry about. If you can't get it to work just flash another nightly or the stable cm6 or another rom. You can find the nightlies on the cyanogenmod forums under experimental builds.

    The 9/12 one that I'm running is pretty much stable for me with a jdlfg or p3 kernel on it.

    I flashed the one from this morning (like 2am this morning) and it booted with the stock kernel, so there was something fishy with the other one. I can also confirm they have NOT fixed the BTVD (Bluetooth Voice Dialer) yet. The instructions I posted the link to still work, however, in fixing it.

    It's been weeks. I'd have hoped they'd have fixed it by now! :)

    Fastest bootup I've had yet, though, with Chevy's 1.1GHz ULV kernel, though.

    Yes, the bot-compiled build from the CyanogenMod GIT Hub, dated 9/12/2010.

    I hesitate to do this, but in all fairness I was going nuts looking for them a month ago, so...

    Latest Version - CyanogenMod Wiki

    The latest versions and a link to the nightlies are here.

    To copy/paste the informational heading from the nightly page...
    ** These CyanogenMod builds are highly experimental and unsupported. ** ** Please refrain from submitting bug reports for any issues ** you may encounter while running one of these builds. ** ** Submitting bug reports on nightly builds is the leading ** cause of male impotence.

    The nightlies are potentially unstable, is why I hesitate. Don't want anyone getting the wrong idea because they tried to put in a feature and it broke something. :D
