PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It wasn't quick or easy, but we are extremely proud of this release and what it represents for us as a group. The jump from 2.3.7 to 4.0.4 in many ways was a fresh start for this project, and as much as the code changed, the structure and organization of CM as a whole changed as well. It meant a lot of hard work, and late nights, but also a ton of fun. We are in this for the challenge, and the reward is always the satisfaction received when we release it to the masses as a 'stable' product. This RC1 brings us a step forward toward that payoff." CyanogenMod is an absolutely amazing project, an amazing piece of software. Been running CM9 on my SII for months, virtually without issues. It absolutely baffles me OEMs don't just use this instead of their own Sense or TouchWiz crap. This is so much better it's just not funny anymore.

Even just the current stable version... but I don't want to risk bricking my only phone, especially when I don't have the money to get it replaced in case it does happen. A Google search brings up some help for my phone model (LG Optimus V), but the articles always seem to assume that you run Windows... and I don't. Worse, they all seem to have different information--with some suggesting replacing the firmware just to "root" it.

Sounds a bit extreme to me, but then, I've only modded routers before. My WRT54GL was so much easier to learn to mod... information was the same everywhere. Make sure a wired connection is between the computer and router, login to router's web admin page, upload firmware... wait and done. It's running Tomato USB right now, and was running the original Tomato firmware for several years before it.
