Sprint’s HTC Hero gets its first taste of Froyo via CyanogenMod 6 Alpha

The CyanogenMod team is at it again. This time, they have an Alpha release of CyanogenMod 6 (that’s based on Android 2.2 or Froyo for you and me) for the HTC Hero. Only, unlike in the past, this build is meant for GSM Hero devices as well as the CDMA Hero in Sprint’s portfolio.

This is a pure Android Open Source Project 2.2 build, meaning you can either use it without any trace of Google apps in it whatsoever, or add all the Google goodies if you so wish.

Before you run and do anything, please remember a few things. This will void your warranty. The developers are not responsible if you brick your phone. Everything you do is at your own risk. And last, but not least, this is an Alpha release, so there isn’t even a bug tracking system yet, because loads of bugs are expected and the developers know about most of them.

Now, if you’re still reading, go to this forum topic for all the details.
