The new CyanogenMod 6.1 RC1 has been released for a few phones, but most notably, the original Droid. For those of us still milking every last drop of awesomeness from this device, you’ll be excited to see what’s in store for this latest version of CM. It now includes the Galaxy S style power widget in the notification bar plus a ton of customized camera additions.
Remember that this is still in “release candidate” stage and is not at all final. Test away!
