    Why VMWare when VirtualBox is free and does the same thing?
    Edit - Looks like VMWare is free too.

    Well, it looks like beanstown106 (just one of 6 developers that worked on PureNexus) is having a $h1t fit about me using his public, open source as a base for my ROM. You guys know me, I never bash on other devs. People have always been more than nice to me, and that's one reason I tend to stay here, rather than XDA or somewhere else. But beanstown just tried to report me to XDA administration for something I haven't even posted yet! :eek:

    Of you hear rumors about me, I can guarantee they aren't true. Just a heads up!

    This is what makes me want to stop development altogether.

    Why do grown men act like "Old Women" -

    I wonder if Chroma's developer would let you use his source as a base. I think it's a better base to tell the truth. Things that don't work on Pure Nexus work on Chroma. Like Voice & Data simultaneously on VZW to name the first that comes to mind.

    I feel ya on XDA...

    Ignorant question: How difficult is it to build a functional ROM straight from ASOP source ?

    Its not necessarily hard to build from AOSP, and have it be functional, thats where it all starts from anyway. But adding in EVERY new feature, by hand, and trying to keep up-to-date with all of the commits from those repos that you want to modify, takes a LOT of time. I dont have that kind of time.

    Now that I think about it, I might as well go with Chroma. I'll download a see how good the ROM is for a start. But Ive already had to report 6 people to both GIT and XDA for harassment and spamming. Profanity in my commits on GIT, copy-paste messages to EVERY commit on my marshmallow branches on GIT.....yeah, Im pissed.

    This is why I always liked it HERE. I thought I would broaden my users by posting to XDA as well, but this latest crap made me realize its not worth it. I dont get any money for doing this, even though Im at the computer at least 6 hours a night doing it. If I lose all the XDA people, fine, I dont care anymore. But Im going to be MUCH more particular about how I word my credits from now on. Like if I used a few commits from PureNexus, I'll credit him of course, but make it as small, and hard to find as possible. I need to separate myself from his name, before he drags me down with him.

    I'm so disappointed both for you and in the Dev, who I'd thought better of.

    If you decide to build and publish here, I'll do all I can to help.

    The FF family of forums has been awesome to me. Literally everything I know I learned because of them and the amazing members.

    Well, no thanks to one particular moderator at XDA, Ive been banned until Nov 19th. lol

    And I still have trolls on my **** on GIT. Im starting fresh from sources of 5 difference places. NONE of which are PureNexus. Hopefully they die off, but we will see. I will have forum moderators delete this entire thread here pretty soon, so it doesnt fill this forum with drama. Just letting those LOYAL followers know where Im at with things. At this rate, Cortex will be delayed at least a month, maybe more, and thats IF I decide I even want to do it anymore. At least here, I have the staff on my side. XDA, the staff was just out to get me. Everyone sleeping with everyone else. That kind of thing.

    So it looks like Cortex will happen afterall! New base will be from DesolationROM. Im also a part of that team now, too, so I will be contributing to their work as well as making my own, based on their original concept. Its basically straight AOSP, with minimal features to start.

    Well, it seems that Cortex might be back on track! After a LOT of messing around, Ive decided to go with CM (again) as my base. There is still a LOT of work that can be done to improve the build for the 6P. It wont be a bug-free as AOSP, but I have yet to get pure AOSP to actually build/flash/run. On a side note, if another developer here would like to help get me building straight AOSP for the 6P, that would be GREAT! But for now, its going to be CM-13.0. I will update you guys more as I get closer.
