    Does anyone have a time frame as to when this will be released? I understand he doesn't rush and focuses on quality, which is why I am using cyanogen right now and am more than pleased. I dont really like switching between roms too often and having to reinstall all apps/lose data, but I'm tempted to try out a froyo rom in the meantime. Will the OTA be pushed out before CM6 is released?

    On a separate note, when I do clear data/cache when swapping roms is there a quicker way to restore everything rather than manually? I have heard about apps2sd but don't really understand it. Can you just place all your apps on the sd card then be good to go on any rom? How much space would that take up? Lots of questions I know, any help would be appreciated

    There is no time frame. And even when Cm6 comes out, you will have to wipe, lol.

    You can download a backup app like Titanium Backup (and i really reccommend the donate version since it is a lot faster to restore) or MyBackup Pro. Both do a really good job at backing up and restoring everything.

    As for "how much space will that take up", the only reason to move apps to the SD card is to keep space on your phone free. You have 256MB of internal storage, unless I'm misremembering, and 16GB of data on the card, give or take some for formatting. In case you don't know the conversion rate, there are 1024MB in each GB.

    There's no speed gain in having your apps on the SD card versus the internal memory, but there's not supposed to be a penalty either.

    Just installed the Alpha and it is NICE. Anyone else having issues with some of their purchased apps not showing up on the market?

    It's not really an issue for me, I use Titanium Backup, but just curious.

    Is there a detailed list of features for CM out there, especially in relation to how it differs from stock?

    Case in point: someone above me asked about the "phone enhancements" in CM6. But I have no clue what those phone enhancements are. I mean, what did the developer DO? How is it better than stock? The change logs all too often don't tell me that, and while some features are pretty obvious (having a reboot option in the menu when I press power - gawd I love that), others are pretty vague.

    I watched the video earlier in this thread and thought "wow I didn't know CM had THAT" for a few of those features, and i was running CM 5.0.8 until the rooted Froyo builds started circulating.

    I loved my CM when I had it, and will flash CM 6 as soon as I possibly can. But I want to get the most from my phone, and I don't think I can do that just by looking at multiple change logs.

    Yes a few aren't showing up in the market (I use Titanium also, so its not a problem for me)

    The ones I noticed - At Bat 2010, Documents to Go full - maybe a few others I'm not seeing.

    I believe that this is because Google hasn't configured the market for 2.2 build codes yet.
