    Some of you are familiar with Sapphire, for the Motorola Droid, cvpcs - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    We're working on building it for the Incredible as well.

    Here's what is going on with us on the ruby front.

    Rob_Stemen has gracefully been testing all builds of ruby to this point on his dad's incredible and will continue to help with the testing from here on out as long as he can.

    but,

    The process of ruby's development has been very slow, due to CVPCS being unable to use rapid development techniques.

    It's a matter of math each build takes 45min-1hour, then uploading takes 10 min or so to upload, then we have to get in touch with rob_stemen and ask him to try the new build time on his dad's phone:time unknown, then he has to flash 5 min, then feedback: time unknown

    adding it up:

    we'll assume 30 min to get in touch with rob_stemen and 15 min for feedback

    per build
    45 min - build
    10 min - upload
    30 min - getting in touch
    5 min - flashing
    15 min - feedabck
    -------
    105 min
    or
    1hr 45 min

    cvpcs alone... 50 min build & flash... less than half the time!

    here's the solution, cvpcs needs an incredible to get the ball rolling for you incredible people out there.

    before everyone goes, OH NO! another person asking for money to buy a phone. Here is a good faith gesture:



    Link to current Alpha builds use at your own risk!!! Index of /ruby/froyo/0.9.6/test (alpha 1,2 and 3 do NOT start dalvik thus do not fully boot) if you brick your phone we are not responsible

    due to the time it takes to develop it will most likely never get to the level of completion sapphire is at, UNLESS we get cvpcs a phone.

    follow the link to donate Donate | Crystal Clear Roms
    or
    donate to: donate@ccroms.net via paypal (these links are SPECIFICALLY for the incredible and go to the same place.)

    Once we have an incredible, our next move will be an HTC EVO, then on to the Samsung Galaxy S series, we MAY get a Nexus One but since they are no longer for sale it will be at the discretion of money and phone availability.

    TLDR: donate to the to the "get cvpcs an incredible fund" so that we can get ruby out to you guys asap

    Running total: $356.00 - minus paypal's fees $341.25

    I may have to donate for Ruby too just so I can see a port for the EVO which may be my next phone if Moto keeps screwing around with locked bootloaders.

    i thought you disappeared, it's been a while since we had heard form you... also cvpcs is having hell trying to figure out why /data isn't mounting and dalvik isn't starting... debugging that over the internet has lead to asking for help getting him one... because without it, it will take forever to get anything done.

    LOL. I'm always around. Returned the X and kept the dinc. And I thought you guys had shelved the idea.

    Anyways no worries, glad to hear it is still going on.

    Anywho we have the leaked .32 kernel from VZW and from my understanding it has been pretty much fail to port over. Something with the drivers. I haven't touched myself but I can ask the guys who have about it.

    Also most of the 2.2 roms out there are running with bits of the leak in it but to do that you have to update to the newer radio.

    This should be getting alot more attention then this. Help the man people. They did great work with the Droid. The more choices we have in builds the better the community is.

    hey everyone i just wanted to put a thank you out to those who have donated so far. we haven't gotten enough to get a phone yet but i really appreciate the generosity thus far :)

    regardless of whether this works or not i'm going to do my best to get ruby out, but i asked sniffle to put a donation campaign together because tbh, it is simply getting too frustrating to develop on something i can't physically see/poke/prod >< haha.

    for instance: i may want to test if a 1-line code change fixes the boot issue, but to do that i must recompile the source, redistribute it, and wait for the redistribution. in total this leads to testing 1-to-2 changes per day.

    if i were to have a device, i could just change the file and flash it myself, which would take less than a minute.

    it is for this reason that after fussing around with it for nearly two weeks in this slow-going fashion, i have finally yielded to the need to actually have the device

    i will continue my work without for now but i just wanted to put a thank you out to all of those who are helping out for the cause :) it really means a lot to me and i will guarantee the best product i can give you in return ^.^

    Keep up the good work.

    10-spot sent your way... and I don't even have a droid incredible. But I love the sapphire roms and I want to keep you doing what you do so well.

    Just stay in the scene so my next phone after my droid1 has a good selection of quality devs.

    Keep up the good work.
