Ever since HTC showed off their new fast boot algorithm on the latest version of HTC Sense (which can more accurately be described as a form of hibernation like you’d see on a PC), everyone’s been craving for it. For those of you who fancy CyanogenMod, developer Steve Kondik’s a fan of the feature, as well, and has incorporated it into CyanogenMod 6.1 (not yet released). It’s not as speedy here as it is on HTC Sense’s ROM, but that could definitely change once he releases a final version. It’s also not THAT much slower – only by a few seconds – but it’s a lot better than the 30 seconds you had to wait before. Check out his blurrycam footage of the feature in action below on his Nexus One.
