    Yes, he has taken all his toys and gone home. I never cared for his work as I had to help too many people over at droidforums.net who had flashed his roms. Some lost root, some lost market, some lost recovery, etc., etc., etc.

    I only have one or two of his froyo roms in my collection.

    good luck

    In the forum dog house.
    Years later and still people do their best to shit on him.
    If you can't convince everyone he's a thief, there's always the "his ROMS never worked right anyway" attempt to dissuade someone from enjoying his work and perpetuate the dev community banishment.
    BD was a ****in' hero! He said "f-you" to the whole developer clique no-share-feature ROM practice, and brought people ROMs that had the best of EVERYTHING; no matter WHO developed the features. But the dev-clique loyalists went bat shit crazy because he didn't treat the developers with the same rock star status they all did.
    Black Droid's practices epitomized open source with the end user being held in the highest regard, not the developer.

    And is this the same person who used to post on hacktherazr.com?

    There is so much epic fail in your defence of that *****e bag that I don't think I will have enough time to address all of those fails.

    BlackDroid used CM source without credit, one. Oh and BTW all of the source was public except for BlackDroid's. He got kicked off of droidforums.net and the old alldroid.com. He started his own website and a 'let's see who can crash each other's website' battle started between he and Steve (CM). CM won in that. So then BD was allowed to start his own website hosting hos own roms (IMHO still with CM source). And then towards the end he required donations so you could have access to his nightlies. This is 'open source'? Where was his github?

    The last time I tried one of BlackDroid's "Ultimate Droid" ROM's I would have been totally embarrased to show my phone to another person because the SOB couldn't even spell all of the menu items correctly. And yes, for me spelling still counts for something.

    And not only that, everything else I said in my prevoius post stands. His ROM's broke more phones than I can count. Sure, he had the 'special' instructions to make it work, but still an epic fail for the masses. But I never saw you over in the rescue squad section at droidforums.net so you wouldn't know, you are just a sheeple. I was in the trenches and I know.

    And now he has taken his toys and gone home. Yet you defend this *****ebag.

    Forgive me mods for some of my language, but it is the truth.

    damn didnt mean to get everyones panties in a bunch but now Im on Chevyno1's simply stunning 5.6 the only issue I have with it is seems to lag a bit or get launcher FC after ending a call. I tried this after seeing your post Teddy about putting this particular ROM on your A855 that liked it so much may not get the I515(I think it was). did you seem to have this problem? if not any ideas on what I might change to correct this like I said its the only issue I have with this ROM.



    And ty btw Teddy I found the UD ROM in your files I have downloaded it but havent flashed yet if can get this lag/FC after a call fixed I think I'll stay with this Simply Stunning 5.6
