Does cyanogen plan on getting a G2 and porting CM to it?

I'm guessing that all has to to with the internal workings...

I'd say we can be 99.9% sure cyanogen will port the mod to the G2, since he has confirmed he's getting one. Whether or not his G2 version is stable during Cm6's release cycle is another matter.

I wonder how long someone like cyanogen could tolerate stock Android?  :huh:

The G2 does have my eye, but I'm on contract with my Droid 1 for several more months. Its been a solid phone, with great ROMs, but I'm getting antzy watching the capabilities of the new phones pass me by.

My G1 has been a great phone, but have been looking for something for a while to replace it.  The hardware has just reached its limits, but I have to have a physical keyboard as well as a screen upgrade being an important factor.  The G2 might actually be worth swapping to a little after the turn of the year (hopefully when prices start coming down a little on it).  I'm really hoping CM has been ported to the G2 by then, been running CM of one version or another since JesusFreak stopped releasing and have not been disappointed.

Can we have an HTC G2/Vision forum? just so stuff can be speculated on, results of any investigation into the system and tested exploits? Maybe some of the work/testing can get get done by those already with the phone.

You will get a forum the same time all the other new devices will, when an official RC1 is ready.

Cyanogen already has a CM vendor setup for the G2, it will be a quick turn around for once the phone gets in his hands

I'm the same way as you are.  Love Android phones, and think my moms Vibrant is really slick.  But, I have big thumbs and on screen keyboards dont work well for me.  If it weren't for auto-correct on my mt3g, my text messages would be full of errors due to hitting the wrong button.  A physical keyboard is VERY important for me when I look into getting a new phone.  Hopefully she'll be off sick leave soon and I can get myself a G2 for free  B)

Mine is partially big fingers, and that I use my G1 like a small netbook.  If some of the Android tablets would do calls too, I might have even been tempted by them.

Stock Android on the G2 is great and no reason to root for me.  It already has all of 2.2.  Even 2.5 wouldn't be a reason because it would get it.  3.0 is another story yet to be told.  It's more than capable for everything we have now and more.

At least the Droid is more capable than a G1 and you can still hang in there.

stock is definitely capable. unfortunately coming through a Service Provider it lost things like tethering, so its a Handicapped 'stock android.' i'll be slapping CM on it as soon as it is available for that reason alone.
the only android phone that i genuinely never felt the need to root/customize is Nexus One.

I agree N1 stock 2.2 was tolerable..

On the G2 not being able to tether and delete apps I will never us has me feeling like I am in a straight jacket.

The lack of notifiction light is what irks my father the most. I'm hope the power light can be converted to a notification light.

Well, there is a notification light, but not in the same sense as the G1, Magic, or Nexus. There's a white led light around the trackpad that pulses when there's a notification.

And I hope that when G2 is supported, Desire Z will be too! Apart from the differences in keyboard, I hope there is no other major hardware change!

I'm planning to have cm6 on it asap


I'm frustrated with the vibrant, very seriously considering purchasing a g2 and selling the vibe this week.

just got the G2 yesterday. would love to have the native wifi hotspot.  new to modding on android (iphone 3gs previously), would cyanogen re-enable the vanilla 2.2 wifi hotspot functionality that tmobile disabled?
