Some of you are familiar with Sapphire, for the Motorola Droid, cvpcs - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum
We're working on building it for the Incredible as well.
Here's what is going on with us on the ruby front.
Rob_Stemen has gracefully been testing all builds of ruby to this point on his dad's incredible and will continue to help with the testing from here on out as long as he can.
The process of ruby's development has been very slow, due to CVPCS being unable to use rapid development techniques.
It's a matter of math each build takes 45min-1hour, then uploading takes 10 min or so to upload, then we have to get in touch with rob_stemen and ask him to try the new build time on his dad's phone:time unknown, then he has to flash 5 min, then feedback: time unknown
adding it up:
we'll assume 30 min to get in touch with rob_stemen and 15 min for feedback
45 min - build
10 min - upload
30 min - getting in touch
5 min - flashing
15 min - feedabck
1hr 45 min
cvpcs alone... 50 min build & flash... less than half the time!
here's the solution, cvpcs needs an incredible to get the ball rolling for you incredible people out there.
before everyone goes, OH NO! another person asking for money to buy a phone. Here is a good faith gesture:
Link to current Alpha builds use at your own risk!!! Index of /ruby/froyo/0.9.6/test (alpha 1,2 and 3 do NOT start dalvik thus do not fully boot) if you brick your phone we are not responsible
due to the time it takes to develop it will most likely never get to the level of completion sapphire is at, UNLESS we get cvpcs a phone.
follow the link to donate Donate | Crystal Clear Roms
donate to: email@example.com via paypal (these links are SPECIFICALLY for the incredible and go to the same place.)
Once we have an incredible, our next move will be an HTC EVO, then on to the Samsung Galaxy S series, we MAY get a Nexus One but since they are no longer for sale it will be at the discretion of money and phone availability.
TLDR: donate to the to the "get cvpcs an incredible fund" so that we can get ruby out to you guys asap
Running total: $356.00 - minus paypal's fees $341.25
