I tried it on my Aria and it works great. BUT the Google Apps don't. I downloaded the right package and it installs, but it won't go past the "Touch the Android to begin" screen. Touch the Android all day long and it doesn't go anywhere. Of course, one of the Android apps is the Android market, so I can't even download the apps separately!

Didn't have this problem with 6.0.2 so back to it until they get the Apps package fixed.

I started out with CyanogenMod 6.0 on my T-Mobile G1. The biggest improvement by far with 6.1 RC is speed. The G1 with 6.0 was frustratingly slow. Now, things are far snappier. Thanks Cyanogen!

I love the Sense UI that my Aria came with and missed it on CyanogenMod. Since I could never get the Google Apps to work with the 6.1 RC I was tempted to go back to the stock ROM from HTC. Today I discovered an HTC Gratia ROM that is the same ROM as the one that comes with the Aria but with Froyo that someone at XDA Developers had ported to the Aria and that's what I'm running now. Love it.
