CyanogenMod Running on the T-Mobile G2


Take two things that I love, mash them together, and what do you get? A whole basket full of AWESOME!

What are those two things? CyanogenMod ROM and the T-Mobile G2.

Unfortunately, we still don’t have a permanent solution to root the G2, so CyanogenMod isn’t an option on yet… or is it?

According to a Tweet from Cyanogen himself: “Booted CM on my G2 in the most horrible way possible.”

Basically what he’s doing is temporarily rooting the G2 (we know it reverts to un-rooted when yo reboot), then rebooting all of userspace with CyanogenMod on the sdcard.

Ugly? Yes. Inefficient? Yes. A step in the right direction? Absolutely!
