IMPORTANT UPDATE: Docomo users beware!!!! This and all subsequent CM6 ROMs as of 30 Nov 2010 contain the mopera.net APN, which may be set by default adding a 4200 yen charge to your bill!!!
Just in case any of you weren't aware, CM6.1 release candidate 1 is now available for download. If you've been keeping up, T-Mobile released a 2.2 Froyo version specifically for the MyTouch 3G, which is the exact same phone as Docomo's ht-03a. And that ROM is quite fast though a bit stripped down.
Prior to that official release, lacking drivers direct from HTC, the CyanogenMod team resorted to reverse engineering to get Froyo running on this phone. These bits and pieces have been in the CM6 nightly builds for a while, but now there is a build that Steve thinks is already good enough to be a daily driver.
No need to wipe before flashing but, as always, do a backup first. If you are using Stevo's swap scripts, you'll need also to reflash those. I've been flashing a lot of ROMs lately, so I just leave it on my SD card. After flashing it run
bootswapv2from the shell using adb or from terminal emulator and answer the questions. I am using swappiness of 20 and no vm tweeks. using
SwapScriptv2will set swap on boot. You'll need to reboot for it to go into effect. I disable compcache when using swap, which is anecdotally the best way of doing it.
