    I partially agree with you on the money aspect, not so much on the "if $5 is going to bust your wallet" because I have been there before, but that wasnt even my point. We all fall on hard time now and then with unforeseen expenses like medical bills. Maybe some one cant do it this week, or next, but maybe next month. Dont forget that we are locked in to a contract so maybe some one could afford the phone and apps when they signed up but lets say a year in to the contract they get in a wreck and have to get an x-ray done. It might put them in a pinch for a few months while they get that paid off.

    You said does any one know how long it takes to make a rom. To an extent I do. My point is the DX and D2 share almost all the same hardware so any bug fixes should be pretty easily carried over from one rom to another(read Liberty GB for DX vs Liberty GB for D2). Im not trying to criticize jrummy by any means I am simply saying I dont see what the hold up would be.

    I didn't realize Jrummy was the only person left on the entire Liberty Team. I wasn't trying to criticize just stating my opinions on the delays only for the D2. Back to waiting which there are some that is cool with it and others that aren't. I'm going to give the Apex Gb rom a tryout since it is out now too.

    That's what I am doing. For the time being.

    Jrummy owns a DX and basically copy/pastes a few essential files that are different between the X and 2. That being said, there are different bugs on the D2 than there are on the DX. He could put 0.5 up right this very moment if he wanted to, but do you really want a buggier nightly?

    The official gingerbread build should be coming out within the next week. Different builds means different coding, and therefore he's going to have to almost start over again. So instead of releasing more nightlies, Team Liberty decided to wait until the official build comes out.

    And this is all completely besides the fact that Jrummy has finals next week.

    Well..I have a D2G if you didnt notice, so it doesnt affect me one way or the other since I cant use it. :p

    That said, I realize it takes a little longer, because he has to push the update out to a select few, or everyone, then wait for feedback, patch, feedback, path some more or move on to the next bug, path, and so on. If he has indeed decided to wait for gingerbread, an announcement, like what you said, posted here would probably get most people to quit complaining. Of course you still have the few who are going to moan no matter what but I think the majority would be understanding.

    You're completely missing the point.
    It could cost $1 and the principle is the same. Don't say you're gonna update something by a certain time, then not do it. If you don't, expect to hear about it from your customers. Lesson 1 in business.

    There's a difference between a donation and a sale. JRummy doesn't owe you anything.

    Splitting hairs, but i'll give you that one (although I did buy it on the android market for $5, which isn't exactly a donation)
    He only owes it to himself to keep his word, and is only cheating himself out of more support. Fool me once...

    That is the simple truth in the matter dx and d2 users all donated with the notion that we would ALL get the nightlie updates but instead only DX users get them and everyone else just waits. I myself am running the Apex Gb 2.0 beta and its leaps and bounds better than the outdated nightlie on the d2. Will run this until the official build ever comes out and I am positive d2 users will be waiting days or a week longer than dx users when it does happen.

    I went back to 0.4, apex doesn't run as smooth. Had a weird stuttering issue to anything I did. App drawer lagged regardless of which launcher I used. Liberty is better.

    I'm going to sbf back to 2.0 until official ota release. This .4 is quick and has great functionality but isn't quite where I'd like it.
