    With this update, Sapphire is starting to hit its stride. Going from just an upstart from source build, to a true well kept rom. There have been many doubter's and from some parts of the community outright hostility and contempt. No matter what is said about this rom and the people behind it, this project is just that competition. Calling all developers to up their game and make everything better and more polished than ever before.

    Smoked Glass Blue sounds kind of interesting. I'll have to try it out once it's released.

    Amen! The first Sapphire ROM that was released showed some real promise. It was limited by the then current, 2.1 source...but now with the 2.2 source out..........I'm getting all kinds of excited to see what they can do with it! :D I'll flash as soon as it drops!

    Sniffle,

    Any chance you could lighten up on the hype just a little bit? You're coming across a little strong in your initial posts, almost like those annoying people that join message boards just to advertise their own, usually inferior, message board. I'm not suggesting that Sapphire is inferior by any means; however, from your responses, you don't seem to be the hyperbole-prone Flava Flav that your initial posts make you seem. I think that you'd probably draw more interest to your ROM if it these release posts were more informational and less "Pitchmen"-worthy.

    funny, your post ^^^ is even structured like a private message... hmm... looking forward to sapphire, bb 0.2.1 random rebooted on me with every kernel available, and 2.1 bb 0.8 is trying to ota update. Looking for something other than bb for the first time ever

    Originally, it was a private message; however, I wanted to make it a public post so that if other people don't agree with me, Sniffle doesn't feel the need to make an unwarranted change. I just know that I personally have been reluctant to try Sapphire for the simple fact that his informational posts come across as being too much hype for the ROM to actually deliver. That, and I've never had any issues with Bugless Beast, and now that I've started using Fab's NexTheme, I'm about as thrilled as I can get with my phone.

    What's "no reboot option or anything" mean in the statement above? :confused:

    I think he basically means its going to be a plain froyo without the sapphire mods added in.

    I disagree. It's easy to confuse arrogance with confidence. If you're confident about something, you don't dial down expectations. If this team feels confident about their ROM, why shouldn't they toot their own horn? The community will be the ultimate judge of whether or not the end product lives up to the hype. So why don't we take a wait and see approach rather than engage in assumptions about one's character?

    as excited to me, not brash. We'll see how it turns out. If they're the first out the door then I'm flashing it.

    They'll have to really step up if they're going to overtake Jrummy (among others) long-term...

    It was once believed that you could plant a sapphire in the ground and it would later become a ruby.
