    With this update, Sapphire is starting to hit its stride. Going from just an upstart from source build, to a true well kept rom. There have been many doubter's and from some parts of the community outright hostility and contempt. No matter what is said about this rom and the people behind it, this project is just that competition. Calling all developers to up their game and make everything better and more polished than ever before.

    Flashed without wiping. Installed 0.5.2, smoked glass, and a fresh 1Ghz LV Kernel. Everything has worked well so far, but I was wondering where the font is located so I can replace it with the file from the stock version, just in case I want to change it.

    Love soooo much, this ROM. Great work guys. I flashed .5.0 just to see and was hooked. Flashed back from Froyo to check out .5.2 and it does not disappoint at all.

    Sadly I use Flash and Chrometophone quite a bit, otherwise I'd likely stay. Can't wait to see your 2.2. Skull One said it'd be in 48 hours :p

    What does skull one know? He's probably fried his brain by now with all that he has messed with his phones clocking settings, to get it just right. :p

    48 hours to compile a source ROM? It'd be impressive to say the least.

    there seems to be a bug in the lates version of clockwork mod recovery, I was not able to install sapphire 0.5.2 with it. I kept getting an error and installation aborted. I flashed an earlier version of clockwork mod and it worked fine. Just an fyi :)
