    ive been out of the country for the last week and saw Cyanogen Tazz is now up to 5.0.

    is there a 5.0 Vanilla out yet? I didn't read thru the entire thread to see what the M.O.F.T.Y. was about.

    Black Rain looks cool, but I am a Vanilla guy.

    Anyone have the links to the download besides going through XDA? Please post if available. Would like to get version 6 downloaded and tested out.

    Thanks,

    XDA's upstream provider (steadfast.net) appears to have had a scheduled maintenance operation this morning involving replacement of their "core routers".

    Both of XDA's name servers appear to be behind a block routed by steadfast.net, and so XDA has temporarily disappeared from the net.

    Here is steadfasts' log showing progress - it appears as if they are coming back on line slowly.

    That is Tazz 2.0 (IIRC, it is not the unthemed "vanilla" version).

    I like Tazz 1.0's theme so much that I am unable to update to any later versions. The whole black rain thing is a bit much for me, but the theme on 1.0 was perfect. Phone runs perfectly too, camera autofocus is working, gps, etc. Camera is back to touch only on the later versions.

    Other than the theme, any compelling reason to go beyond Tazz 1.0?

    (I flashed conaps v4 cfs kernel separately. Amazing battery life improvement. Like, doubling. Maybe I'll give Celb froyo a try...)

    i'm up to 4.0 vanilla and use Dark Froyo theme. This seems to work best for me, to use the vanilla versions theme how I want it.

    I suppose it is to be expected, though - up to the point of 1.0, there were some remaining bugs to be patched - MMS, camera, backlights, notification LEDs, autofocus, etc. So, all the Froyo devs were focusing on problem resolution.

    Once all of that stuff got more or less put to bed, what was left for a ROM dev to do? They can either take one of three approaches: publish "new" ROMs which are all about themes which are pre-cooked, or create a means to add themes as packages, or issue both themed and "unthemed" ROMs at each point release.

    Not to say there are no remaining bugs in Froyo ROMs - the in-call disconnect/reconnect hasn't been fixed, and the CFS kernel seems to go nuts occasionally (I've had 2 spontaneous reboots - once when the phone was sleeping! - in five days of CFS use). I'll post the /proc/last_kmsg files over on XDA when it comes back up (although I don't see any smoking gun in them).

    Just FYI - on Tazz 1.0, camera works better than on the subsequent versions (after installing the version of camera in the OP), MMS works fine, LED notifications work fine. (No trackball notifications). All is smooth and nice, and a great theme. Happy for now.

    (Though, I believe that if an XTR-Froyo came out, I'd be happier)

    Sorry - I wasn't implying that 1.0 had bugs in any of those specific areas - what I meant was that up until a certain point in time, the devs working on Froyo ROMs had some pretty obvious bugs to contend with - things that were show-stoppers for lots of people that had tried out Froyo ROMs. So, a lot of dev attention was focused on fixing those bugs, and the functionality of each release of a given Froyo ROM series improved.

    But, at this point in time, we are a little ways beyond that - you might even say that Froyo ROM development for the Eris is "at a standstill" from the point of view of incremental functionality (even though there still are some minor bugs and irritations). The kernel work on CFS and BFS is certainly interesting, and no doubt there will be further improvements in CM releases, so, it's not like there is nothing left to do - but code for the Eris seems to be reaching a level which can be described as "mature"; and it is hard to accept new releases - especially when the re-introduce problems that were previously fixed.

    Largely though, I agree with you - I may yet roll back to 1.0.

    Agree -- and for me that means the pastime of nandroiding and titaniuming and installing ROMS has slowed way way down. There's not much new. I have an awesome working phone that does what I want. Hooray. :)

    (sigh)
    I finally convinced my wife to let me root her Eris (it's done, yea!) but now I can't get to XDA to download the xtrSense ROM. Ain't that just they way...
