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.

Push to your SD card and flash it in recovery. :cool:

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/vision/g2-recovery-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?

Adb push baconbits.zip /sdcard/update.zip
Fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Reboot to recovery
Vol Up+Power
Apply:update.zip
Reboot
ADB push vision-baconbits.zip /sdcard/update.zip
Your fastboot command would work if the recovery image was named recovery.img from the start ;)

If they dont rename it, it would be:
Fastboot flash recovery g2-recovery-test-keys.img

You should know how members of all ranks are with typing just what they are told or see ;)

Put the recovery file in your sdk tools folder,reboot your phone holding volume down, select fastboot using power key, via command prompt "cd" into your tools folder, then run the command in the first post (the fastboot reco... one)

then put the bacon bits file on your sdcard, rename to update.zip, restart your phone holding the volume down button.

once in the menu on your phone use the volume keys to select recovery and hit power button to select it.

hit volume up and power at the same time to reveal the recovery menu, select the update.zip option and power to start it, when its down hit reboot.

Does this bacon bits include an ability to wake the screen by pushing the trackpad? Hitting the power button to turn on the screen isn't the easiest thing.

    Being a total newb to this, I experienced a serious learning curve, but I got 'er done. All I can say about the speed difference in my G2 is...holy crap! Thanks!! I'm now getting Quadrant scores of around 2200 and Linpak scores of over 46 MFLOPS.

    I just rooted and installed CM 6.1 stable. (I'm new, so this may sound dumb) I want to overclock to 1.2 or 1.4 ghz, is this already active? Where do I go to play with these settings since I do not need to install anything. What if I wanted the 1.8ghz kernel, is that one included in CM as well? Where do I go to turn it on?

    use SetCPU app from the market to OC your custom OC kernel.. and yes, u can change kernels.
