CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android 2.2 (Froyo) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.

#include <std_disclaimer.h>
 * Your warranty is now void.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

This is an AOSP-based build with extra contributions from many people which you can use without any type of Google applications.  I found a link from some other project that can be used to restore the Google parts, which can be found below or elsewhere in the thread.  I've still included the various hardware-specific code, which seems to be slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Visit the CHANGELOG for a full list of changes and features!

All source code is available at the CyanogenMod Github!

If you'd like to to contribute to CyanogenMod, checkout our Gerrit instance.

- First time flashing CM 6 to your Aria(or coming from another ROM)?
  1. Unlock/root your device and install Clockwork Recovery via ROM Manager
  2. Do a Nandroid backup!
  3. WIPE/Factory reset
  4. Install the ROM
  5. Optionally install the Google Addon

- Upgrading from earlier CM6?
  1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  2. Install the ROM (your Google apps will be backed up automatically)

- Was it a hard reboot?  Get me the file "/proc/last_kmsg".
- Was it a soft reboot or a "boot loop"?  Run "adb logcat" and get me the full output.
- Pastebin links preferred
- Please use the issue tracker whenever possible!

Please visit the CyanogenMod Wiki for step-by-step installation walkthroughs and tons of other useful information.

This bulk of this PROJECT is still largely (overwhelmingly) the result of the efforts of cyanogen and team cyanogenMod.

I need to be crystal clear that I didn't do this by myself in a vacuum. This was a team effort. I'd like to thank cyanogen, who pointed me in the right direction when I had a false start and has now integrated this device project into cyanogenmod..

I'd like to thank Eugene, who got me started.

I'd like to thank the entire crew at irc channel #liberatedAria for helping so many noobs get started so I could do other stuff, but especially endeng, for building the first dev environment to follow and verify my process to keep my builds honest, and for helping jznomoney also build a dev environment and continue work while I was sidetracked. jznomoney did a ton of grunt work and some good guesswork to finish up and get a largely working ROM. Atlas gave me a clue after I needed one after not sleeping for a few days.

Large and in charge and consistently contributing big time in the IRC channel are:


Please read the FAQ before/while downloading. Failure to do so will result in bad voodoo.

Non-standard disclaimer:

In order to use this ROM, you must have already installed clockwork recovery. If you manage to brick your phone with this ROM from there, you are a dumb ass of unimaginable proportions, and I absolve myself of any responsibility whatsoever. Further, any damage done to your phone with this UNOFFICIAL ROM is your fault and no one else's.


Q. I bricked my phone/my signal sucks/my cat exploded since installing this ROM.
A. See the Non-standard disclaimer above.

Q. I can't seem to flash the rom successfully, and my Nandroid backups don't restore.
A. Do NOT start Clockwork recovery by powering down the phone with the USB port plugged in. Clockwork WILL NOT operate reliably that way. Power down the phone with the USB cord disconnected so that the phone powers off properly. Then start the phone by pressing and holding the vol-down button while pressing the power button to start. After diagnostics complete, you can enter Clockwork the proper way.

Q. I lost my 3g connection after I flashed cm6, now the icon just says "H".
A. You didn't lose 3g - the H is for HSDPA, which is enhanced 3g, sometimes referred to as 3.5g. It's a good thing, if you see an "H" where the "G" used to display - don't worry about it. Print this out for next time you head to the can: http://en.wikipedia....._Packet_Access

Q. How do I keep my wifi from going to sleep every time the screen shuts off?
A. There is a hidden feature that disables wifi sleep.
menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > wifi settings > menu (again) > advanced > Wi-Fi Sleep policy > Never > menu > Save
However: although you can keep the wifi service from sleeping, the wifi driver will still sleep on it's own after detecting no bus activity for a period of time. It doesn't wake reliably, so you are better off just letting the service sleep.

Q. Will this ROM support over or under clocking with Set CPU?
A. No, not with the current kernel. If the kernel is updated to support it, I'll post it as a new feature.

Q. I can't get flash to work. What's going on?
A. Flash 10 is not supported by this CPU and AOSP Android does not support flash lite. Even if a hack allows installation of Flash 10, it's doubtful it will run very well.

Q. Where's the FroYo wireless hotspot?
A. It's in there!
menu > Wireless & networks > tethering and portable hotspot

Q. What's wrong with bluetooth? It doesn't work with my floozengadget.
A. Nothing. All bluetooth functions have been confirmed *WORKING* with compatible devices.

Q. But my floozengadget device is bluetooth compatible. What's wrong with bluetooth?
A. Nothing. Android AOSP bluetooth on the broadcom chipset is not compatible with every bluetooth device. Consistent compatibility issues have been noted with devices using certain parrott chipsets, certain automobiles with factory bluetooth including most Nissans, Volkswagons and an assortment of other devices and autos.

Q. Can you fix bluetooth so it will work with my floozengadget device?
A. No.

Q. Does the FM Radio work?
A. No, and there are no plans for FM radio support at this time.

Q. I miss HTC Sense. Can it be added to CM6?
A. No. HTC Sense is proprietary. Further, it is more than just a launcher and add on programs.

Q. But I really really really miss Sense. Can it be added to CM6?
A. No. And still - no. Yet - no.

Q. What's an ETA for the fixes and when will the ROM be finished?
A. No one gets a dime for this port, and no one works on it full time. It's a work in progress and as we make any significant breakthroughs, we'll update the ROM and post it. Sometimes I take time off from the project just to be a wise ass and beat on jznomoney. I don't know how any of this answers the question, but if it conveys an urgency to meet a schedule, then I recommend reading the answer over and over again until it doesn't.

Q. My widgets don't load or I am missing icons on the desktop or in folders.
A. The sdcard mounts late in the startup process - later than when desktop icons and widgets are loaded. This is a problem inherent in Android 2.2 and manifests itself when an application/widget is moved to the sdcard that has a presence on the Desktop. This is not a bug in this ROM, it's apps2sd in FroYo.

Q. If this is cyanogenmod, then how come it doesn't work exactly like it does on xyzphone?
A. Good question. If you know the guy who ported xyzphone well enough, ask him to lend us a hand. We're still on a steep learning curve.

Q. May I use your work and customize it and republish it?
A. My work is a small portion of this project. Ask cyanogen specifically about what you want to do and if he's okay with it, who am I to argue? Do not ever claim the work you are using as your own or fail to give cyanogen or his team credit for the project and my group credit for the device port or you will be on a lot of s-lists faster than you can hit your spacebar. I don't think cyanogenmod should be skinned up for redistribution.

Q. May I republish this ROM, giving proper credit?
A. Get permission first. I am likely to NOT agree until we have a stable release. You may NOT determine when it is stable enough to republish.

Q. Will you put out customized/skinned versions of this ROM?
A. No. This is meant to be a clean port of cyanogenmod for the HTC Aria, and nothing more. cyanogenmod is an awesome project, and I don't plan to detract from what it is in any way shape or form by customization. Once you install it, you are free to do whatever you like with it. You are of course also free to build flash-able skins and whatever mods you'd like to share.
