    So if I were to try this ROM what would I notice different from a BB rom or the Cyanogen mod roms?

    I just want to know if this is safe to try as a daily use rom.

    What, if anything, is this rom missing.

    it's very safe to use as a daily driver... most people have never had a FC or hard reboot...

    Okay, I might try to load it up later once the update is posted.

    I'm on BB V.3 and ever since I took the Froyo plunge (BB V.2.1) I've been getting the idle random reboots.

    Looking forward to trying out something new!

    edit: There are no main features missing though, right?

    Totally unscientific, but I have had the best stability so far with Sapphire. I had previously tried Chevy and BB Froyos. All of them ran well, but Sapphire has been the first one with no quirks for me.

    The basic features that a stock Verizon ROM would have.

    I just want to make sure that there isn't anything I should be able to do on the phone that I wouldn't with this ROM. (I'm not meaning to be demeaning, I just want to check before I do)

    lol! you had me thinking somethign obscure or some script...

    :) it can do everything a stock rom can do and more, in some areas it can do more than cyanogenmod... in others less...

    sometimes there are hiccups (i am currently having an issue with the vibrate function CVPCS isn't that one is a real headache...) but trust me if there is any kind of hiccup we fix it as fast as possible...

    there was a release yesterday and we are planning another release today... we keep things as up to date as we can

    I've run almost everything out there as this is as good as they come - can't recommend these guys highly enough, and they've only just begun.

    Agreed, I've tried them all and this one is by far the best.

    Sniffle - As far as the vibrate bit, I went to Settings -> Sound -> Vibrate and chose Only when NOT in silent mode (The options are Always, Never, Only when in silent mode, Only when NOT in silent mode)).

    So is CM rom when it's done. Note that no froyo cm rom has been officially released. The only thing that snuck out was a quicky alpha test build.

    just a quick off topic for a sec. I read the saphire site and i dunno this part struck me a bit off.

    that's pretty much crap. what you are doing is exactly what they are doing just now you have your vendor setup instead of theirs. Not that competition is bad or that more options are not a good thing. And the reason most used their source to build from is because it's good, extremely good. There is probably not a better source base to build a rom and theme then CM. It has many improvements over stock aosp.

    Not that anything you are doing is bad, I hear some people like your rom and I tried it for a day had no issues. Just the site seems to try to make you out as unique and really if anything you are just becoming another CM rom group. why should people rely on your vendor and source? ..... etc etc.

    anyways no offense meant, just thoughts i had at the time I read to see what the rom was about.

    ok sorry back to topic didn't mean to hijack lol.
