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.
