Cyanogen's Heavily Optimized Android G1 ROM v3.4

Cyanogen is maintaining a custom ROM based on Android 1.5r2 focusing on performance and reliability, with some additional features. Yes, this will work just fine on your non-ADP devices. Cyanogen focuses very hard on making his roms bleeding edge and making his roms use the G1's full hardware potential. He seems to be a linux guru and compiles his own kernel off of the latest cupcake branch 1.5r2. He currently is the most active rom developer at the moment. I personally prefer DudeOfLife's latest rom because of the looks and speed even though cyanogen's may be a few days newer.

Cyanogen's Disclaimer:
While this build is heavily optimized, it is also capable of pushing your G1 much harder. I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or the current economic crisis. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it!
