CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

This version is a release candidate, but you will find it stable for everyday use.

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.
 */

*sigh*

Still having homescreen lag + notfication bar lag. I wonder when it'll get fixed, I think aosp managed to totally iron out the popup dialog animations a few builds back, but I think it came back.

I wonder what it is that does this? Anyone else who's experiencing the same, feel free to chime in, this time I'm looking to see if we share something common about our phones.

(This is in comparison to Froyo)

I was experiencing the same and it turned out to be a widget on my homescreen. In my case, it was Pure Messenger Widget. If you're running any widgets, try losing them.

    Is there a disadvantage to this?

    Can't be "themed" via hacking the apks.

    RC4 has a huge bug fix from google that pwns a pmem leak when exiting any gfx-intensive app. I'd highly recommend updating.

    Thanks! What exactly is VM heap? Does it have to do with voicemail? I use google voice and could careless about voicemail.

    VM in this case stands for Virtual Machine, not voicemail. If memory serves, the VM heap setting is the maximum amount of memory the Dalvik virtual machine is allowed to allocate on the heap for a given app.

    im using the cwm that you find in rom manger i think its the most stable and as for the kernel i trust s0be's its been great for me

    As far as I remember the stock kernel should be fine too.

    Instructions from here http://romrepo.info/wiki/index.php?title=Install_from_another_ROM

    Without Firerat's Mod

    Move all files you intend to flash to the root of your sd card (ex. aospGBmod, GAPPS, custom kernel, fr-boot/recovery).
    First you need to wipe/format your phone, in clockwork recovery: Wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition. Under Partitions menu (or Mounts & Storage in 3.0.0.5) in recovery: Format boot, system, data, cache. Under advanced: wipe Dalvik Cache.
    Flash in this order: ROM, GAPPS, Kernel (optional, but always flash kernel last before you flash boot).
    Reboot
