    [Android] Why Cyanogenmod rocks

    last weekend, I rooted and installed Cyanogenmod for my HTC desire as I had run out of room for apps and wanted to regain the space occupied by HTC Sense.

    (And of course, to stop being publicly humiliated by Domino )

    That's worked out great and a side effect of doing it has been a great increase in battery life - e.g. I use it all day and its not on red level down the pub in the evening

    (Could just be due to clearout but its a fact anyway )

    But I've just discovered that you can bypass the need to use 2 hands to switch the thing out of standby by designating the trackball switch to do the same job - hallelujah !!!!!

    A 1000% increase in user friendliness and worth the price of admission alone

    Si

    I don't know what you mean

    Have you also tried enabling the lock screen gestures? For instance I've one which turns the torch function on or off after drawing a curve on the screen - handy for fumbling in the dark

    OT: CyanogenMOD does rock, doesn't it? One of my favourite things about it is the ability to add shortcuts to the notification bar to turn on/off various settings like WiFi and Bluetooth - just makes using the phone that little bit more intuitive

    Cyano definitely ROCK!

    Just put their 2.2 Froyo build onto my LG GT540, and it is awesome!

    And people said it couldn't be done!

    I'm trying out a different ROM at the minute - Oxygen. Battery life isn't as good, but I have so much free space now! With all the apps I had installed on Cyano, I had 15mb free space left, with Oxygen I have about 120mb free space!
