    Sapphire is da bomb!

    Been a long time BB user, changed to CM6 rc2 for a bit and hated it, went back to BB and thought I would never try anything else. Saw some discussions on the BB forums about Sapphire being built from source and it got me thinking. Planted a seed I should say. Finally yesterday I made the plunge and installed Sapphire 1.0 with the 928 theme on top and I have to say, I'm a changed man! My phone has never been so fun to use or so stable or smooth as I've seen it now. I'm VERY impressed. Battery life is good, phone is cool (using ULV 1.0 kernal), responsive, memory management is very good. I'm just content, I have NO complaints at all.

    Before I was looking forward to my next droid phone, was considering paying full price for one actually without upgrade pricing. My Droid 1 was ok, it did the job, but didn't generate much excitement for me anymore. Until Sapphire. It's been reborn in my mind and I'm perfectly ok with waiting into next year until my upgrade is up. Keep up the good work!

    Could not agree more!! Made the switch a few weeks ago and have found my ROM of choice for sure!! The only thing I may change is the theme every now and then, but I am even extremely happy with that too! So, my wife may get her wish after all - I may actually STOP messing around with my phone ... for a while anyway

    I just also came from BB 0.4 and am very very happy, which is surprising cause I had no complaints about BB 0.4
    I have a lot of good how to articles about music managing and battery life etc. PM me if interested.

    the only issue I have with Sapphire 1.0.0 is when is when I touch the screen to scroll (emails for example) or to resize pictures (for wallpaper for example), the screen is jumpy, more like flutters up and down.

    anyone else having this issue?

    other than that, running sapphire with the nextheme and its pretty bad ass

    haven't noticed that ... just tried it too and everything is very responsive on my end.

    Make sure you are using hte ondemand govenor in the performance settings (or setcpu) and not conservative.

    Galaxy S4: Stock 4.2.2
    Transformer Infinity TF700: Rooted / CromiX 4.5 (4.2.1)

    D1 -> POS ThunderBolt -> Bionic -> RAZR MAXX -> Galaxy S4

    Must be someone else's - cvpcs doesn't have "ULV" kernels.

    regarding the sapphire praise .. yupt, i agree. it is fast and SOLID.
    gives new life to my droid!

    i'm new to rooting. this latest sapphire build is only the 2nd time i've loaded a rom.. but it has gone perfect both times. i don't have time to deal with a wonky phone, so i was sorta hesitant about roms. but sapphire is absolutely solid for me. not one single issue. happy ... and content.
