    Some people don't use ROM Manager for a variety of reasons, not limited to how on some phones it breaks downloads EDIT: **NOT THE PHONE!**, loses recoveries, loses files it just downloaded, doesn't flash the recovery images well, and so on, so the link I just provided will be the one they want to use to get it and install it manually from there. :)

    You are welcome and This. Is. Awesome.

    Like, wow. Still a few little tweaks are needed, but wow.

    I like the new SU icon, the DSP equalizer grabbed me by the short and curlies, and the amount of customization newly available blows me away -- and I thought what was on there before was incredible!

    And may I saw, all the options for the new power widget are mind-boggling.

    The biggest improvement for me is the new options for backlight dimming. It allows you to turn back full auto dimming, which I missed so much from 2.1 and earlier, and you can now go dimmer than stock without needing to install extra apps. Another nice feature is to be able to completely turn off the lock screen. I've always felt that the button is so hard to press on the Droid, that there is no need for a lock screen as well. But there are so many features in this update that are amazing.

    The one thing that was kind of disappointing after I tried it out is that the flash light in the power widget doesn't use the led, it just turns the screen bright white. Who knows maybe this can be tailored to the Droid version in another release. I noticed they took all the trackball options out of the Droid version.

    This is a huge improvement and step forward from RC2, I am super happy. The ROM is really responsive and quick, I may not even install an overclock kernel. We'll see how things go in the next day or so with battery / speed.

    I absolutely love the new customizable power control widget, and the LED settings are much easier to set to your liking.

    Love it.

    So the RC3 for Droid1 isn't ava yet right? Or is it? I don't see an official statement anywhere on cyanogenmod.com. only reason why I asked is because I seen your link above Index of /motorola/sholes
    and if i go to it I see "update-cm-6.0.0-Droid-RC3-signed.zip" so it made me think it was available. was just curious. thanks.

    That's the one you want. Once you have that down, get the appropriate Google Apps pack from the CyanogenMOD wiki. :)

    Latest Version - CyanogenMod Wiki

    PS: if you get rid of the #Google_Apps and click the droid, you'll see that the RC-3 is the latest version available officially. CyanogenMod doesn't always announce RC releases. For instance, the RC-2 never got a nod on the front page. :)

    No, it is available. They usually only put out official statements for the Nexus One for some reason or another. You can get it at the link you posted or check it out on ROM Manager.

    wow, appreciate the quick response. i have a couple quick questions, not trying to clutter up your thread with random questions. right now i'm on RC2 using the watermark'd theme. do i have to wipe data when installing RC3? i know it's probably always a good idea to do so, but i don't have a good backup program.

    last time i did a ROM, i lost all my SMS messages because all i did was use the free version of titanium backup and it's only for apps and their data. i want to be able to wipe, flash a new rom, and be able to restore everything including sms messages, apps, app data, google accounts i have configured (i.e. have over 10 of them and it's a pain in the ass to reconfigure them all again.)

    i have heard of "nandroid" and "my backup pro". i'm kind of short on cash, so a freebie would be nice, but if you would reccomend a paid one, which one? thanks in advance.
