    Can't wait to try out the gingersnap. Any info on when it might be available? Also curious on cyanogenmod I have heard a lot about it. Was running the original version of eclipse but had to sbf due to mytry own errors last night. Now I see second version of is out and am getting ready to try it. Just hope I don't have the camera issues others are although I know the next version he said it will be fixed.
    GREAT thread. Thank you for this. Hope constant updates on this thread occur

    I was planning on releasing it last week, but unfortunately, spare time complicates things. This is my last week of work, then I have a week break before I start class again. Release should be expected then if everything carries out smoothly.

    I love how people have so much beef about Minimal X and the idea that it wasn't a whole ROM and it was based off a Chinese release. So what?! Simple fact was, something needed to be released to uplift DX2 users' spirits.

    So, anyone who wishes to complain, or make rude gestures about Minimal X, please take it up with me. I wouldn't have a problem telling your nerdy ass that I honestly don't care about your opinion.

    I supported Minimal X and appreciated it greatly. It was the first release of anything to indeed uplift the community. I am however looking forward to a fully released rom with some additional features. My comments were in no way directed towards you. Thank you for your support but perhaps you should check your attitude at the door.

    Ninja Edit: I do not have the ability to modify roms nor is it a skill I wish to acquire as I have entirely to much on my plate as it is. I do However appriciate any effort that someone puts into a release of a rom if it has bugs or not.

    I am unaware of who you are, and I never recall you saying anything against MinX. So, my apologies if you received this as an attack towards you. I said that directed towards other devs who have stated in their ROM notes that it is a full ROM and not a Chinese knockoff. It's unnecessary and only asking for trouble. Really, there is nothing wrong with my attitude; I was simply responding to those who are disrespectful and are blatantly calling me out. If anyone wants to speak anything personal, then PM me.

    Gotcha I knew you were more reasonable than that :) lol I understand it does suck to have someone undermine your work just because of its base. Regardless the rom was a first and ran fine on my phone all the way up untill the official 2.3.3.


    Thanks again for MiniX and continue your work no matter what some other dev has to say :)

    Also damn text it has no emotion involved ;) it is sometimes hard to read someone exactly lol.

    For those of you waiting for CM7, it's going to be a looooong wait.Once the bootloader is broken (See 2nd init), development can begin. How much of the core CM7 code can be used is anyone's guess. Being as this is a dual core phone I tend to think less core CM7 code can be used, leading to extensive re-writing of the exisiting CM7 code. CVPCS spend 5 or 6 months getting CM7 running on a stock DX, this is a whole new animal in a way, and in some others it's quite similar.

    Yea figured as much. Oh well, at least he has said that he is working on it, thats better then nothing.

    In other news. I updated with info on another rom in development. Oxide by Ryman222. He is canceling development on corteX2 to focus on Oxide that is gingerbread based.

    Now that Google owns Motorola look for Bionic to launch with an unlocked bootloader.

    That is what I am hoping. And if it does I will have no problem paying full retail price for it.
