    Many in the Android community, including myself, have been patiently waiting for Cyanogen, Koush and the rest of the CM developers to crank out a stable release of CM6 (an AOSP-based FroYo ROM). Don't get me wrong; alphas and nightly builds were being released on a regular basis, and the reaction from the community to them had been quite positive. However, today is a monumental day in the Android community, as the Release Candidate has finally arrived for CM6. What does this mean? A mostly-stable release, and you know nothing gets Cyanogen's seal of approval easily. CM 6 has been in the works ever since June 23, the day 2.2 hit AOSP, and dozens of developers have been working tirelessly to get CM6 to this point. So, I urge you to check out the latest and greatest from Cyanogen, Koush and the rest of the Android team. CM6 Release Candidates have also been released for the Nexus One, Dream, and Magic, and we expect it soon on the Evo 4G, Incredible, and even the G1. Grab it on ROM Manager now! Alternate Download Link here

    With CM6 RC1 comes a 800Mhz kernel by default. If you're looking for a different speeds (up to 1200Mhz), may I recommend jdlfg's kernels (which are v.32.2.1 kernels specific to CM6). You may also find these kernels on ROM Manager, in jdlfg's section.

    From CyanogenMod:
    Here's the CM6 Changelog:

    After playing with CM6 RC1 for about an hour, all I can say is wow. Truly a redefining experience on my Droid. Give it a run, and let me know what you think. And themers, get to work!

    For ClockworkMod users, download CM6 RC1 and Google Apps via Rom Manager.
    For SPRecovery users, download CM6 RC1 here (link via Koush). For Google Apps, download here.

    Thanks to PDR447 for the tip
