As you may or may not know, I've been using Sapphire since 0.6.0 and find it to be what the Android experience should be. It's also been a couple weeks since sniffle posted about 0.8.4. It's also expected that the next official release of Sapphire will be 1.0 once the OTA hits. ZOMG what's a Sapphire freak to do?
Well if they are smart they would look for and run a test build even if it is not supported by anyone.
If I were such a person I would look tothe link at the bottom for some newer goodness.
BEFORE CLICKING, please read this notice:
The current supported build of Sapphire is and remains 0.8.4
The next supported build of Sapphire will most likely be 1.0
This is build # 0.9.5, so be aware it is 100% unsupported by anyone on the sapphire team
Do not ask questions about this build in threads as they will not be answered, although you may have some luck from me or others running it if you ask IN THIS THREAD.
The official position of cvpcs and sniffle is that the build and this thread DO NOT EXIST as they are concentrating on the next official release which may be a way away depending on the official OTA.
Also be aware, framework has changed in this build, so themes may or may not work, but most likely the one you want will not. Don't ask themers to update their theme to this release as it is not an official release and most likely things will change again before 1.0.
Also know that while this will make your Droid the envy of so many, it will still not have the Droid X screen. Installing it incorrectly may even turn it into a Blackberry.
Install using the instructions found in the 0.8.4 stickied thread. I didn't wipe, but you may want to. And whatever you do, NANDROID FIRST!!!!!!!!!
Without further ado,
Sapphire 0.9.5, and gapps for 0.9.5 (you need both):
Current Sapphire Changelog:
Black Bar Mod Framework.apk from pdroid, this will need to be pushed out via adb:
If you wish to grab the 3 Black Bar themed apps (gmail, mms and gtalk) install the following from 0.8.4 and then push out pdroid's modified Framework.apk above (only do this if you want those 3 apps from the original theme):
