    Since Froyo is said to be out for the Droid next week, is Pete delaying 0.5 for the official release?

    Is this a question or statement?

    I think this is a question, but wanted to verify.

    I'm willing to bet Pete already has the base for Bb.5. Once the official OTA update is out there might be a Bb.6. Well that is going by past history, which is a good indicator of the future. Purely speculation though.

    I was initially thinking that, but given the gap in between releases, I do not expect so many iterations. I suspect he is getting the base ready with all his new tweaks, and then will layer that into the official release once the dump is available.

    Why not just start flashing some different roms to see what else is out there while your waiting? Luckily you don't marry ROM's, so go ahead, sleep around.

    I would imagine many of the forum users have tried other ROMs, perhaps they just happen to have found something they enjoy.

    Obviously you can try Chevy, or JRummy, or any number of developers, all of whom bring their own twist to our Droid experience. But if they want to stick with one they enjoy, let 'em wait for Pete's next release.

    Speaking of which, my theory is that Pete is working on never before seen droid tricks, like having it order the kind of chinese food I like, or battle Google's new "let apps ping whenever" technology ;)

    Do we even know if FRG01 is not the official release? Sure, it was leaked early but it could be the one that makes it through all the testing, no? In this case I would already be running the official release and Pete should be well on his way to making his best Bugless yet.

    To paraphrase the old Bartels and James wine slogan:

    "He will post no ROM before it's time".

    Dear God, I have really dated myself with that one!

    He has an X and I think he was spending some time with that. So that may be the case...

    Once there is an official OTA it will become 1.0 since it will no longer be a RC

    He has not forgotten the original Big Daddy Droid.

    He is still developing for it. Give the kid a break... let him enjoy his summer a bit. He will release .5 or 1.0 when it is ready.

    I will be flashing to the new BB when it comes out, buy for now, I have been enjoying spending some time once again with Cyanogen/Koush's latest release.

    I hear that. Just yesterday I downloaded CM6 RC2, Kangerade 6 and InsanelyClean 1.3. Tried out CM6 and InsanelyClean but ended up with BB at the end of the day (it was a pretty long day). Still got Kangerade to experience before V0.5 pops up.
