No official support for themes with this release according to the wiki. I haven't tried flashing one just to see, yet.

Been running it all night. No crashes. Very fast. All features work except the wifi which is already known. I haven't done linpack yet but quadrant score was 1401. Not bad. That'd with Chevy's 7slot 1.25 mv kernel. My Droid would freeze with low.

Will post full feedback on the following areas.

Camera
gallery
Linpack
browser
Standalone wifi tether
Battery life
Heat

And anything else I can think of.

What can you do on this ROM that is different from BB ROM?
I want to try it but all I hear on this thread are complainers and no positive feedback so can someone tell me what sapphire does please? Thanks :)
That's easy! I've run all ALL (literally ALL) leaked Froyo builds since P3Droid's 1st version the day it was released. I have been fortunate enough to have the time to work all of the bugs out, the more I toyed with all of them. There were many, some more than others.
After installing this ROM, and waiting for Market to do it's thing before trying to do anything (very important on any new ROM), I haven't had one problem mentioned in this thread. (I did install WiFi Tether which "fixes" the WiFi appearance problem)
Kudos go out to the Sapphire team for this fine work.
Job Well Done!
:)

Like some others I have really had no problems. I used Chevys 1.2 LV kernel and my WIFI works fine. You guys really did a great job putting this out. I give you kudos. I will donate what I can.

So far so good on this mornings testing... On my old ROMs I noticed battery life seemed to suffer, so far this morning I have been surfing, talking on the phone, etc and I still at the full indicator.

One thing Im wondering, I have no Flash on the browser... am I missing something?

Have to install flash manually, link in the original post.

I still get no wifi working on this, though I haven't been able to get wifi to work on a single Froyo ROM yet. Was hoping it'd change. Oh well!

Flash is a separate app you need to grab - hunt around here or google I'm sure you'll come across it somewhere

edit: or check the OP lol

It worked for me. Coming from BB v0.2.1. I wiped data and cache and let the phone sit for about 30 mins after signing in. All my apps were reinstalled.

Overall, it seems to be hit or miss for me though. As many times as I've wiped and reinstalled roms, this is only the second time it's automatically installed my apps.

I installed the WiFi Tether App that came with TeamChaos ROM and WiFi Tethering is working like a dream. I used to get constant drops and it was very annoying. Ive been wifi tethered with my Macbook Pro for a solid 30min with no drops yet. Yesterday at work when I was messing around with the "other" Rom, it would drop every 30 seconds or so.

Glad to see that now that all of Google's market issues are over everyone is enjoying the rom. Wifi is a known issue... sorry we're trying to find a work around. until then the wifi tether app is your best option.

Hey sniffle - don't know if it's possible but one big thing (for me) that was missing was Voice. I could always pull it from another Froyo gapps package but it would be nice if it could be included in Sapphire - I'm sure a bunch of us probably use it.

Tested a feature that has been something I have wanted for a long time, blue tooth voice dialing. Tried it out and worked beautifully!
