does this have any actual advantages over cyanogen rc2? I used sapphire before but switched to cyanogenmod because everyone was saying it was the best thing since sliced bread. cmrc2 is good, fast, and customizable and I don't really want to go through the pain in the ass of wiping/restoring/etc for a new rom unless it's worth it.
so what do you guys thing?
the one thing i specifically miss about sapphire is that the reboot option when you hold the power button gives an option to reboot into recovery, but that's all i can remember
I think Sapphire is also good, fast, and customizable.
That said, you may want to either stick with the latest official release, Sapphire 0.8.4, or wait for the next official release which should be in a couple of weeks. You'll get better support that way - not to say that we won't give some people a hand with this test build, but it's not as much of a priority (think CM alpha builds).
I used CyanogenMod's eclair builds for a long time - I'm sure they're putting out great work as usual - but I think Sapphire is worth checking out. I will be using it exclusively for the foreseeable future.
Yeah, I'll check it out when 1.0 comes out. As of my experience, (in my opinion), whatever nightly cm build i'm on > sapphire 0.8.4. i think that's only because sapphire is relatively new and will improve exponentially given time, but as of .95 or .84 or whatever, is there anything I'm missing that should compel me to switch?
Just installed 0.9.5 using the most recent CW (22.214.171.124). Worked fine. Also installed the 800LV sapphire kernel without issue, as well as the 0.9.5 framework-res.apk with the black bar (thank you for that!!)
For those who want some level of theme without changing the updated elements - There are some nice ADW themes in the market. Currently using the Gala S theme.
lol, except for the kernel i'm pretty much running exactly the same thing.
just load 0.8.4 up and see for yourself. If you like CM you will quickly see that Sapphire is just as good if not better than CM and that is a personal guarantee.

I agree with CK...
I was on BB then CM then Sapphire v0.7.0 and am now on Sapphire v0.8.4. I'm up in the air as to whether or not I will DL the "unofficial" 0.9.5 or just wait for the "official" release. Either way, I don't see myself going away from Sapphire any time soon. v0.8.4 is working very well for me right now.
The rumors are flying that the OTA for Froyo will come very soon. When the 2.1 rumors were flying, I was reading up fairly regularly, but this time I am not as interested. Sapphire has a lot to do with that.
