    why built from source just plain ROCKS

    well after a dedicated run with Bugless Beast I have made the jump to a built from source ROM (sapphire 1.0) and all i can say is WOW. it is night and day going from what is a modified stock rom leak/dump to a built from source rom
    the source rom is quick and smooth the internal features are second to none and the amount of tweaks and mods are insane. BB was a great rom but really didn't offer much above the stock 2.2 experience Pete is a great I wish he would make the leap from tweaking stock roms to creating source builds. but tell then sapphire was won my loyalty.

    I totally agree with you. Before froyo came out I was always rom hopping because I liked CM since it was built from source and included tweaks that no one else had but liked the "hacked" roms since they seemed to be themed better but had less "cool tweaks". I switched over to Sapphire about 2 weeks ago and I absolutely love it, especially since its completely different than cyanogen (not based off of team douche's work at all). Ill be sticking with them too, I wonder what the future will hold for them, cant wait to see what theyll do with gingerbread

    built from source separates the men from the boys when it comes to ROMs haha...and yes it is a world of difference.

    Anyone with sapphire 1.0, have you used the volume rocker to change songs and have it spaz out and continuously change songs until the playlist ended? Its a great feature that I will be patiantly waiting to be fixed since it works with Pandora too.

    I switched from BB to Sapphire as well, and well in some cases it feels a bit faster (and certainly has more customization options), I don't see how it's as drastic a difference as you guys seem to make it out to be. Am I missing something, or is this one of those "zomg I reinvented the wheel so it MUST be better lolz" kind of things?

    The major difference between source based and "hack" based roms are that source based roms are continually upgraded since theyre built from the AOSP (the devs include the new code whenever its released) while hack based roms rely on update leaks to upgrade their core OS file. Heres a good article written by CVPCS of the Sapphire team (officially called crystal clear roms) that discusses the differences between CCroms and Cyanogenmod, and the differences between source based vs. hack based.

    Maybe I dont have it enabled but my volume rocker just increases/decreases the volume for me on slacker and mixzing, maybe it only works for the stock music app?

    all i know is i refuse to switch from cyanogen even if it's only a release candidate and not a full blown release...i tried numerous times before and it always felt like i was going from an S-class to a mustang (or worse)...

    @ slipstream

    Well for starters sapphire's seamless themeing is great the themes cause little or no problems with the base build. And second the built in cpu controls blows setcpu and BBs cpu feature right off the planet. Also and as a whole every nuance of sapphire just clicks like it was ment to be in the rom. See being built from source means from scratch BB is nice but really just stock with some extras and most of those extras are wonky at best BB froze all the time regardless of kernel. Sapphire is just slick I love it.
    Ps built in tether works on sapphire and not on BB
    And on a side note I did a little experiment. When flash from one froyo rom to another I would wipe data three times then flash new rom this with out fail would always make the new rom somewhat wonky. So no I go into clockwork recovery go to partition then I reformat data cache sd ext well everything but the sd card three times each. When done the new rom runs flawless.

    It didn't work with slacker and I don't use MixZing, but its suppose to work when the screen is off and you hold down the button to change songs. Either way it not working is a big loss since the lock screen controls work as they should, its really a selling point to people that Droid Does
