    Looking good so far, I had an initial force closing of settings but that was my doing on not following instructions. But as of now I'm getting force close when I try to edit a contact. the PLUS that I've noticed is that the 3d gallery is the smoothest it's ever been to date for me personally, no lag of any kind, it just responds! I miss the blur texting. it has the AOSP Messaging app instead.

    Contacts is messed up but fab is aware and looking in to it. I also can't use tweetdeck as it fc's after adding accounts.

    But other then that which is minor it is really smooth.

    So far i have had no force closes =D and my battery life is a lot better. Even though this is a Alpha, its looking pretty well. Kind of wish the CRT animation came with it though.

    Are you using "fast" or no transitions/animations in spare parts? You need normal or slow transitions for the CRT effect to work.

    Running VERY well for me at the moment!! Thought GB for the DX couldn't get any better!!

    After the couple of hot fixes not sure why it's not a beta at least!!

    Many thanks Fab. for all the work you did on this one even though still an alpha build... nice to be back on Apex after a long stint with Liberty! Nice to be back home hahaha

    This seems pretty stable besides the few issues that I've seen (he's fixed most) so im surprised this isn't even beta. Im sure a full release will come soon.

    Follow fab on twitter... @bigxie . Keeping links off droidforums for now to limit the amount of tech support issues having the masses on an alpha build would bring. Friend him on twitter and find the links in his tweets but remember alpha's may have bugs, not a finished product, and feedback is essential. As with anything root, use at your own risk and be familiar with recovery process just in case.

    Alpha 2 is running great for me. I notice something most probably won't, It seems like a bug, but I actually prefer it.

    If you enable a pin lock (I have to due to corporate email), you lose the motorola slide unlocker. Basically, every time you turn on the phone if you have a pin enable and the timeout has not been reached, you get no lock at all.

    I like using widgetlocker, so it's not an issue, and actually a nice feature. Since moto lock is kinda weird, widgetlocker could never supress the slide lock anyway, and a workaround was to set it to auto slide for you. Which works, but is kind of clunky. Now I don't have that problem.

    So I call this an unintended feature :)
