Now that the dust has settled, it's time for a new CM build..

This is a heavily modified version of AOSP 1.6 without the proprietary bits (which will back up your proprietary bits and restore them after installing the ROM). In order to get up and running the first time, you'll need to follow some simple instructions. A great set of documentation has been put together by the community at the CyanogenMod Wiki. Everything you need to know is there!

But first..

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
The Android devices we own come with many files that can't be redistributed legally, and as you all probably know, I can no longer include these with my ROMs. So, in order to get up and running, you'll need a compatible device with a compatible ROM.

Installation Guide @ CyanogenMod Wiki:: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.ph...CyanogenMod.3F

IF HTC Touch Input Force Closes: install file below =)

* UNIVERSAL! Runs on both Dream and Magic 32B
* Based on Android 1.6, many bugfixes and enhancements from AOSP, XDA, and me
* Custom art and wallpapers from Prash
* Highly optimized kernel with many extra modules
* Enhanced ramdisk which uses optimal mount options and smart startup
* Includes E2FSProgs for checking and converting Ext filesystems
* Apps2SD is automatic! All you need is a second partition (ext).
* Launcher with 5 screens and auto-orientation and compact drawer layout
* 360 degree auto-orientation thanks to Optedoblivion
* Clean filesystem shutdown at poweroff/reboot, and fsck at boot (no FS corruption!)
* Includes Amazon MP3 store, and Work Email (MS Exchange support)
* Does not require "DangerSPL"
* Includes a massive APN list
* Maximum CPU scaling frequency set to 528MHz with latency tweaks
* Various enhancements to the Settings app including extra partition space
* System dex cache moved to /cache to save 30mb on /data
* Phone app enhancements by cytown
* MMS enhancements from rgv151
* FLAC audio support thanks to kroot
* Bluetooth OBEX support from Erin Yueh
* Contacts app enhancements by ChainsDD and Wysie
* USB tethering support (kernel code ported by Zinx)
* Commandline extras: bash, lsof, powertop, htop, nano, busybox
* Ability to lock home app in memory (control in Spare Parts app)
* Eclair graphics, apps, and other guts
* Multitouch browser and gallery
* Music and DeskClock apps from Eclair

So let me get this strait for the noobs...

edit: revised my steps since I learned that what HTC refers to as a "recovery image" is different than what we do so that caused a LOT of confusion for me and i'm sure it did to a lot of other people! On the HTC website the recovery image is the same as an update.zip so basically it's just an update you need to apply that's all.

Here's my step by step process that I used going from CM 4.1.11.1 to 4.1.99

I have CMRecovery Image 1.4

-Go to http://developer.htc.com/adp.html
-DL the 1.6 "recovery image" the file name is - signed-dream_devphone_userdebug-ota-14721.zip
-Then DL CyanogenMod-4.1.99
http://n0rp.chemlab.org/android/expe....99-signed.zip
-put them both on your SD card
-Boot up into CM recovery image 1.4 by rebooting and holding the home button, do a wipe.
-update using any zip to that "recovery image" (signed-dream_devphone_userdebug-ota-14721.zip)
(it should auto reboot install radio then reboot again and load back up to the CMrecovery img screen)
-Then update any zip usig CyanogenMod-4.1.99 (update-cm-4.1.99-signed.zip)
-Then power on the phone

-Very simple! the rom is running great so far and I'm glad that's it's going to be even easier to update to future CM updates using CM updater

Just to make sure, if you have 4.1.11.1 do you have to flash the ADP rom then the new rom, or can you just go from 4.1.11.1 to 4.1.99?

Meh, I always hate flashing the radio. But what's necessary is necessary I guess. I suppose it's possible to simply copy the required files over and resign?

He didn't say anything about flashing the radio again, just the recovery image

You can actually just use fastboot to flash the system.img from HTC first also.

Thumbs up
First off good to see you back!!! Nice to see that it was user friendly to flash this as well. Hope to see 4.2 out soon cause this rom is pretty stable so far. No home screen loads as of yet. Great work!

The "Recovery Image" is just how HTC refers to their update.zip format of the installer. It does include a radio image.
