    Thought I'd make an "official" announcement rather than answering this 500 more times...

    We're waiting on 2 things before we start GB Hexen.
    1. The official OTA. Yes, we have the soak test and the leaked builds but we dont want to have to start over again when we get the official OTA if they change things.
    2. All of the bugs with CM7-GB to be fixed. This is because we are basing GB Hexen off of CM.
    We have another important announcement as well. We would like to welcome RevNumbers to Team Hexen. He has been a very big part of CM4D2/G and we welcome his knowledge to the team.

    Great news! As badly as I want a GB based hexen right now, I'd much rather wait a little bit and get one that is more refined. Thanks for letting us know. :)

    If this is based on cm then what's the difference between this and cm?

    HeXen 2.0 will be based on CyanogenMod for a number of reasons. I won't get into incredible amounts of details about it, but essentially, everything we wanted to add to HeXen 2.0 was already in CM. Obviously, we're going to slim it down a bit, and tweak the hell out of it. Plus, it gives the benefit of having all of the CM Theme Chooser themes available to everyone from the get-go. No having to wait for themes, they'll already be there.

    :yahoo: yes! I had the FroYo HeXen ROM and loved it... Just did the OTA to gingerbread the other day. I like the tools and whatnot, but the blur bullsh... is annoying.

    Super excited for a gingerbread HeXen!!

    Froyo Hexen was good. GB Hexen sounds great.

    Also let me know if you guys need beta testers and stuff.

    Any news about the release date for GB Hexen? I am anxious to install it on my phone. CM7 and Apex both seem to have many bugs.

    When CM7 gets stable then give the devs time to create Hexen. Everyone is working hard to fix CM7 first.

    You mean Hexen will be based on cm7? Apex too? What is so great about this cm7 rom that all the others are based on it?

    Why do you say "the real gb"? Are you talking about the .608 ota update? Is it out there for download now?

    I say real because it's not the leaked build, source was android central and droid-life.com I'm mentioning too because 13th Angel said they were waiting for the official GB build to be released (in case of any fixes) and CM7 glitches to be fixed. And with GB being released it means one more step closer to Hexen development >_>

    Its been delayed a week according to droid-life. However, the email I saw just said they werent starting it today and didn't give a timeline so I have no clue where droid-life is getting their 1 week from.

    If Fenuxx wasn't MIA we might have already started >.< CM is to the point that we can but I want to wait for him. He's busy with work last I talked to him....
