    I might be taking the leap into rooting my phone as I am sick of waiting for 2.1. I've been hearing a lot of good things about CyanogenMod but I haven't really seen what sets its apart from other rom. Can anyone enlighten me as to what makes this rom great? Thanks in advance

    One thing different about this ROM is that it is built directly from source code up. Not just bits and pieces of things added together.

    Stability is the first thing. Then it has features that no other rom has. Such as built in USB tether, 360 screen rotation, working leds when screen is on. That is just some that I use. Also everything is what can be on the nexus one.

    Get DM updater would be the quickest to obtain root. Then get Rom Manager from the market to flash clockwork and the rom.

    When you downloaded the rom did you select google apps and modules?

    no... I got it directly from the cyanogen forums as the ROM downloader was not working. ****.

    fortunately, i backed up. hopefully clockwork will work for its intended purpose. i will redownload via rom manager when it works, I guess. i see now upon rereading the forum more carefully that there is an additional version with the google addons. doh. thanks for bringing my attention to this.

    last edit: my rom manager wasnt updated. all is well, thanks

    Liking 5.0.5. Installed via the update.zip method by removing the recovery folder and it works perfectly. Still wondering how to activate a2sd, but I will investigate that more.

    True, but a bit incorrect. Some other roms do have the 360.
