MOD EDIT - Not needed if you're already on CM6.1+

Add some bacon to your G2!

Now that we have root, and our team is hard at work on getting CM running, here's a quick "bacon bits" package.

* Unified Vision/Ace kernel with overclocking and lots of goodies - https://github.com/CyanogenMod/htc-kernel-vision (oc from coolbho3000, install SetCPU to use it)
* Notification lights fix - flash speaker LED for notifications
* Set ro.secure=0
* Add Superuser from ChainsDD
* Busybox

The kernel is based on the HTC ACE (Desire HD) release which is 2.6.32.21. I merged in the necessary changes for Vision so we are up to date with the latest!

You'll need a recovery which can flash stuff signed with testkeys. Use ROM Manager to install Clockwork recovery.

MD5SUM: afbc157e888f08bf5c12cd8b66750b70

Push to your SD card and flash it in recovery.

With interactive governor and full OC, I'm hitting 2300+ on Quadrant.

Flashed and good to go

EDIT: The newest Rom Manager now has G2 support, and Baconbits will be added to the CM repo, so all this can be achieved via Rom Manager

Outline of steps: http://goo.gl/1VAXf

Noob walkthrough:

* Setup Android SDK and install drivers/udev rules as needed
* S-Off your g2 http://goo.gl/Sc134
* Copy vision-baconbits-0.3.zip to your sdcard, rename it update.zip (you can do this via adb using: adb push vision-baconbits-0.3.zip /sdcard/update.zip)
* Reboot to fastboot mode (adb reboot bootloader)
* Flash the recovery http://n0rp.chemlab.org/android/visi...-test-keys.img : fastboot flash recovery g2-recovery-test-keys.img (if you get 'waiting for device' your phone either isnt in fastboot mode, or you will need to fix your sdk drivers)
* You should get two 'OKAY's once recovery flash is complete
* Press the power button once; then the vol down button to highlight 'recovery'; then the power button again to select the 'recovery' option
* The phone will reboot to recovery
* Press volume up+power to show the recovery menu
* Select the 'Apply:update.zip' option, using volume keys to navigate, and power button as [enter]
* Once the zip applies, reboot

If you get signature verification errors on the zip, it means your fastboot flash of recovery failed to apply, redo it

Is there a way to flash recovery from the phone itself?
