    Includes JIT?
    I'll be really stoked to see some benchmark numbers off a Hero running this ROM for comparison.

    the camera and video camera must be a pain in the ass to figure out since his darchdroid 2.7 had some problems with that too. will try this one soon

    the biggest thing is that it's supposedly far more efficient than 2.1

    I've tested a few of the alpha build and they have all been super fast and battery life has been exceptional. Just flashed this version today and so far it seems on par with the alphas. I am still having some FC issues with the Market that started with the GoogleShits 91 version, I thought he had those fixed, but I guess not. Now if we can only get the HTC clock widget and vvm ported over I'd be happy. Before anyone mentions it, I did try Google Voice, and I was unhappy with how fast it picked up to vm.

    wow.... it's pretty kick ass to hear that updates are efficient and use less resources, with better batt life, when usually in software these days, it's the other way around, more bloat, etc.

    I'm excited to sit on the sidelines on this one and can't wait to try it out when the minor kinks are worked out.

    BTW, since the devs are working on video, I wonder if there's any way to push the Hero video up to 640x480, with better audio codec support (for clearer audio)?!

    This might be a stupid question but thought I would try. I am coming from Fresh 2.3.3 and flashed this ROM today after doing a wipe. I want to re-install or move the apps to the sd card but mine is formatted with the partition. Everything I've read says I need to remove the partition. How do I remove it? I created the partition on the phone and was hoping there was a way to remove it on the phone.

    Thanks!

    I know it contains the Market because legally they can't include it in the Rom....not sure what else it has in it.

    Can't include it in the rom?
    You mean exactly the way it's included in every other ROM? I'm a little skeptical of that explaination.

    If you can flash a rom, you can get this working. It was easy, I actually think it was harder to set zen up...

    Yeah Zen was a pain in the ass for me, you had to flash updates for seemingly everything... didn't help that the updater wouldn't work for me either.
