    With the dismantling of Team Chaos, I was feeling a little abandoned. I've been wandering around DF the last couple of weeks wondering which ROM to switch to and for some reason when Sapphire was announced here on DF, I didn't think it was Froyo.

    I checked back in here a couple of days ago and got straightened out on that point and found out about yesterdays 0.6.2 Release.

    I installed Sapphire last night. The installation couldn't have went smoother. I have ran 0.6.2 for over 24hrs now and not one FC or problem of any kind. I am running at 1 GHz W/p3droid-7x1000lv Kernel and Launcher Pro.

    Let me say, I love this ROM! Completely trouble free operation.

    Some observations I noted in comparing to Team Chaos Redrum ROM ( please do not take these as criticisms, they are just observations)

    1. Under the same conditions, Sapphire runs consistently 5 degrees F hotter (this could change with a kernels change).

    2. Although Sapphire boots in record time for me, it is a bit sluggish in comparison to Redrum. However, this could also be kernel related or something else going on my droid that is not optimized.

    3. Last is the lack of themes. I downloaded and installed a smoked glass theme, but I may have grabbed the wrong one. Because nothing changed. I see you have a contest going on and I imagine new themes will be coming soon.

    Anyway, I'm no longer an orphan. I found a new ROM. I Look forward to hanging at the Team CVPCS forum.

    Glad you're enjoying the ROM. The theme probably didn't install because your /system partition is too full. This was due to an overly large kernel from P3 that will be remedied tomorrow with new release (I think).

    Anyway, stay tuned as I said, new release tomorrow with the latest proprietary files from the latest FRF leak.

    Yeah 0.7.0 will be updated with the themes too, and if track record shows anything, smoked glass will be one of the first done. And pdroid is right. P3Droid while rushing forgot to remove the dubbuging symbols from the modules, thus filling your system partition to the brim (I checked mine and it only had 36kb left).

    pdroid,

    Good call. I'm not going to get much installed with 40K left in /system :laugh:

    Before sniffle alerted us to this issue, I mounted /system in root explorer to get rid of some apps last night and noticed about the same free space on mine - was like holy **** guys cutting it a little close are we? lol

    Welcome aboard. I am a former UD and BB user. I am really loving this ROM and you will too. The only issues I have had are due to my constant tinkering. Glad you found a home here with Sapphire ROM!

    Sniffle really should pull the link from the site. 0.6.2 runs fine with the default kernel and the P3 one certainly doesn't work for most (especially themes).

    Mike I too felt orphaned by Team Chaos. I had just jumped aboard right between the two devs leaving. Having said that, this ROM runs smoother for me than even Team Chaos did. Much smoother than any other ROMs I had tried. And I must say, it feels mighty good to break away from the cookie-cutter builds currently available.

    But if you install the kernel before you install the theme, it won't work because the kernel accidentally fills up the system partition with debugging symbols that were supposed to be removed, but P3 forgot to. Still, the new kernel is way smoother than the stock kernel. Can't wait till tomorrow for 0.7.0 and the redid kernel.

    Did you theme first and then install the kernel?

    basically, in a word... life happened to TC. Bgill55 had to leave so he could dedicate more time to his family. Adrenalyn had some family issues to attend to. Hedney is going to college in the fall and won't have the time to dedicate to the roms.

    So 3 key members of Team Chaos had to leave to deal with much more important things. It sucks for us b/c they were doing some really great things..... but this is a phone we are talking about here and they have to take care of more important things.

    I'm another TC orphan. I was using their rom as my DD since almost the very beginning. I've been playing around w/ Sapphire as well as Kangerade from Jrummy.

    Both are nice roms, although i did get thrown into a random boot loop last night while running Sapphire. I had been running fine for most of the day using ChevyNo1's LV 1.2GHz froyo kernel and then all of a sudden the phone got real hot and just started rebooting. I'm going to do a fresh install this morning and hopefully have a stable sapphire rom again.

    I'd stick with the kernel included in the ROM until 0.7.0 hits today with the custom P3 kernels. The loops are probably an issue with the Chevy1 1.2 kernel.
