    As you may or may not know, I've been using Sapphire since 0.6.0 and find it to be what the Android experience should be. It's also been a couple weeks since sniffle posted about 0.8.4. It's also expected that the next official release of Sapphire will be 1.0 once the OTA hits. ZOMG what's a Sapphire freak to do?

    Well if they are smart they would look for and run a test build even if it is not supported by anyone.

    If I were such a person I would look tothe link at the bottom for some newer goodness.

    BEFORE CLICKING, please read this notice:

    The current supported build of Sapphire is and remains 0.8.4
    The next supported build of Sapphire will most likely be 1.0
    This is build # 0.9.5, so be aware it is 100% unsupported by anyone on the sapphire team

    Do not ask questions about this build in threads as they will not be answered, although you may have some luck from me or others running it if you ask IN THIS THREAD.

    The official position of cvpcs and sniffle is that the build and this thread DO NOT EXIST as they are concentrating on the next official release which may be a way away depending on the official OTA.


    Also be aware, framework has changed in this build, so themes may or may not work, but most likely the one you want will not. Don't ask themers to update their theme to this release as it is not an official release and most likely things will change again before 1.0.

    Also know that while this will make your Droid the envy of so many, it will still not have the Droid X screen. Installing it incorrectly may even turn it into a Blackberry.

    Install using the instructions found in the 0.8.4 stickied thread. I didn't wipe, but you may want to. And whatever you do, NANDROID FIRST!!!!!!!!!

    Without further ado,

    Sapphire 0.9.5, and gapps for 0.9.5 (you need both):
    http://files.ccroms.net/sapphire/froyo/0.9.5/test/

    cvpcs's kernels:
    http://files.ccroms.net/sapphire/froyo/0.8.4/kernels.testing/

    Current Sapphire Changelog:
    http://github.com/cvpcs/android_vendor_cvpcs/blob/froyo/CHANGELOG

    Black Bar Mod Framework.apk from pdroid, this will need to be pushed out via adb:
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/umzv1o

    If you wish to grab the 3 Black Bar themed apps (gmail, mms and gtalk) install the following from 0.8.4 and then push out pdroid's modified Framework.apk above (only do this if you want those 3 apps from the original theme):
    http://sapphire.davekover.com/files/sapphire/froyo/release/0.8.4/sapphire-0.8.4-black_bar-update.zip

    0.9.5 has some very nice changes, but you no longer have theme support. Hope you like vanilla :D

    My favorite part about this thread is a warning to Sniffle or cvps. That's classic. But with the drop of cmrc2, I was getting irritable about nothing new from cvps.

    Black Bar Mod from 0.8.4 seems to be working w/o a hitch for me. Course that's not saying a lot now as I am just starting to test things out.

    Few things people should know about this:

    • Wi-fi does not work. You will have to instal a new kernel to get it working
    • Cpu freq settings will not work. Cvpcs did not say: It sets the config settings properly but the boot script hasn't been updated to use them
    • compache-at-boot should work
    • GEM Settings is now in the regular settings.

    Hope you all enjoy, as i have so far.

    So you shouldn't back up and wipe your cache on this one right? :D LOL! Fascinating. I've downloaded it but I may hold off on installing it until I have time to grab a fire extinguisher. :D Thanks for posting it!

    Installed over 0.8.4 without wiping. Used CW 2.5.0.1. Then installed gapps, p3's 1.1 and Alternate Dark theme. No immediately apparent issues, though I haven't checked everything out yet. I did have to reinstall swype.

    I don't see the Gem app. Is that a result of applying a theme or did those settings get moved?

    Edit: just saw Tanks post. Since the theme isn't updated, I'm not able too see the settings. No biggie, I'll live til the official release.

    Themes that install using the update.zip method replaces the framework, and I heard this one has changed the framework, so you lose those features.

    Themes that replace apps also replace things like the CPU scaling, though that doesn't work yet anyway.

    Check the regular settings app. I think GEM stuff has been added into that.

    "Framework settings"? what does black bar mod break? Vanilla Android is fine and dandy .. except for that stupid white notification bar.

    Sorry, lost my train of thought while typing there...

    I meant that they changed the framework some more, while between 0.7.0 to 0.8.4 he didn't. That is why themes worked fine without messing anything up to that point. Now themes will replace the new framework, thus losing those new changes.

    I like the new CPU controls in the Gem Settings. All that is missing is the profiles and I can retire SetCPU.

    OK, so I was good with my original thought that black bar mod works fine. (I couldn't see how it could not as it only changes the notification bar). Thanks for the clarification. It's late for me as I have to get up at 5am for a freaking early meeting and i was being stupid.

    It replaces the whole framework though... Yes it only changes the noti bar, but it is replacing the 0.9.5 framework with the 0.7.0 framework. Not good.
