its out! Begin "when is it done" threads for Cyanogen and Sapphire Froyo versions...
From the Moto X event live blog (engadget)...
I think with the Verizon event being held today, we all are probably gonna be surprised. I don't know, but I think it is a little more than just for the unveiling of the Droid x
So I got a question though, is cyan finished with his rom from source yet?

Froyo rom explosion in 3......2.......1......
I guess those of us that flashed Froyo Kangerade V1.1 will be flashing yet again in a few days, once a ROM built from source is released.
I said this before, but I'll say it again. THANK GOD I'm a teacher with the summer off. Otherwise I wouldn't have the time to do all this tinkering. And I get to take care of "Droid business" while my wife is at work so I don't have to deal with the "quit playing with your phone" comments from her.
When you say 'finished', ummm...AFAICT, all of the CMs are built straight from source....Obviously I am too into the Isner Mahut match to really think about what you mean,
@John: He meant has Cyanogen already dl'd and built a new ROM from source since it's official as of today (he was making a joke). There haven't been any official 'from source' ROMS built as of yet - only modified leaked builds.
Oh, no he has not - in fact, Cyanogen just posted this on twitter a while back:
What does "from the source" bring to the table that we don't already have? I ask because I have zero issues with the original BB Froyo and the speed is great. It just seems that I can do everything already. Not that I don't welcome new builds but at this point I want them to bring on Gingerbread.
Now that's funny stuff.
@istolvampire: It allows the devs to completely custom tailor the OS for a specific device, from the ground up. Theoretically, it also allows for more stable ROMS.
Bringing a ROM from source means you have complete control over how the software is compiled, for your specific hardware, as opposed to a generic / ported ROM from another device.
Same thought here, I'm on Nexbeast .1 at 800 mhz, smooth, fast, no fc's.
building from source also allows them to make a lot more changes that cant be done by hacking up a leaked build. The reboot option in cyanogenmod on 2.1 is a good example of something that could only be done when building from source
Google's blog for FroYo release:

awesome. can't wait for the goodness to hit.
Cyanogen just tweeted this:
Twitter / cyanogen: And CM6 is underway. We 3 ...
ANd, then, this:
Nice! Can't wait...Hopefully we will start seeing some Pete tweets pretty soon
Pete doesnt build from source.....at least none of his roms to date have been as far as I know
froyo source is also going to mean better kernels as well. Bekit is already working on new kernels
I thought he did for 2.1, but I could be wrong...Either way, we will be seeing some great roms coming soon
But wouldn't this mean a more stable BB? A large number of people have had problems with his recent froyo roms.
