Cyanogen strikes again and has released his first official Android 2.1 (Eclair) ROM for the T-Mobile G1/T-Mobile MT3G called CyanogenMod-5 v5.0.7.

What’s NOT included that you’d find on a Nexus One:
* Launcher2 (too clunky for these devices)
* Stock Live Wallpapers (LWP support is there, but may not work with all LWP apps and/or performance may be bad)
* Facebook (install from the Market, contact sync works perfect)
* Google Voice (install from Market, push notify works perfect)

What’s included:
* Everything that goes with Eclair
* 3D, video, camera, camcorder, BT, WiFi, etc are all of course working

CyanogenMod extras:
* Can be used with or without Google applications
* Kernel 2.6.33.3 with tethering support, Compcache, VPN/tun, and other modules (cifs, nfs, aufs, fuse)
* New Apps2SD method implemented mostly by Chris Soyars.
* Built in USB tether
* Graphical enhancements, #boobs, and excellent wallpapers by Prash and SatanR1
* Includes BusyBox, htop, nano, powertop, openvpn, bash, irssi, and all engineering commandline utilities
* FLAC audio support from Kenny Root
* Phone enhancements from Cytown
* Contacts enhancements from Wysie
* MMS enhancements from, well, everyone (see changelog)
* Perform zipalign-on-install of applications
* DeskClock tweaks- longer autosilence and “require unlock” option
* Massive APN list
* All available locales are included thanks to PsychoBoy
* 360-degree auto-orientation by Optedoblivion and Elanthis (enable in settings)
* OpenVPN integration thanks to James Bottomley
* Music app can respond to long-press on the volume buttons (from Metalhead)
* Many other bugfixes and tweaks from AOSP contributors
* Tons of work on the build system by Koush and Chris Soyars
* See the full CHANGELOG for all credits and details

My first serious modding of Smart-Phones started with my T-Mobile WING and now Android devices. I'm also a bit of a photographer, although Android has kind of taken over my life and photography has taken a back seat.

    Thank you so much Cyanogen. I was waiting for this the last couple weeks. I’m a restaurant manager and had to “leave” dinner so I could download this. I am more than happy. I am on a myTouch 3g, and had to put the homescreen in lock, and other than that, I have a yummy eclair. Great work to everyone who was involved in this. Thanks so much! (Of course, I am very excited for the updates that we will see over the next few weeks, I am sure).

    I am running this on the mt3g and I do like where we’re headed, but y’all have to know running 2.1 on this is like running windows 7 on a PC that was made to run XP. It is fast in some respects but only as fast as the hardware will let it. I think its time to upgrade. Personally I am waiting for the 5″ tablet and rooting it. Hey but that’s just me.

    Thanks Cyanogen and everyone who contributed to this wonderful product. I flashed it the day it was released and I’ve loved it since. Since this is still labeled as “experimental”, I’m not going to be critical about its power consumption. If you’re planning to use this rom everyday, make sure to have your charger in the car, desk @ work, and @ home. I guess a usb cable plugged into a computer will do you fine. But this is great stuff. It is fast but it snacks on your battery life all day. I’m sure Cyanogen & his guys will tweak this to make it “green”. Thanks again guys.
