    This release is HUGE! Sapphire has hit 1.0! Everyone is excited including us, with this release we have several announcements to make.

    First off, Sapphire 1.0, with Verizon's release of the official OTA update we are proud to announce our 1.0.0 release. Many of you have been looking foreward to it for a while! A few features people will like are that Gem Settings has been moved to the actual settings screen instead of it being it's own app, kmob's lockscreen music controls, we've also modified the previous volume controls(when screen is off) when music was playing to now skip tracks on long-press and work accross all music players, including Pandora and Slacker Radio. Bug fixes include ##program menu, 50% signal loss bug, wifi signal loss issue.

    For a full list of changes and bug fixes please see the changelog.

    Next up we have our own website now!(no forums at this time) It's name is ccroms.net which stands for Crystal Clear Roms. This is now the blanket name for the group and all roms we produce. CCroms.net is a centralized location for all information related to sapphire, other upcoming roms, bug tracker, howto, etc. We hope you like it!

    I would also like to officially announce the addition of BGill to the ccroms team as the master of themes, or "The Jeweler" as he has come to call himself. He needs no introduction as you all know who he is. Though i will say he worked all last night to port themes for the 1.0.0 release so once he wakes up we should have several themes ready to go for everyone.

    Lastly, we are also currently in a donation drive. As many of you know we are trying to expand our device coverage to the HTC Incredible to produce a rom named Ruby, which will be Sapphire for the Incredible. For more information on this should you feel like donating please see the below link.

    Will work for Incredible - Ruby - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    enjoy everyone!

    Son of a...I download FRG22 on my way home from work and now I have to decide between that and sapphire now.

    I hate you all.

    /Just kidding of course, thanks for all the hard work. You have a couple beers coming your way

    Never tried the previous Sapphire release, but I've been meaning to. I'm stuck on Chevy's SS 4.6 right now, but I think this will be my next flash. Unfortunately not all of the links to theme screenshots on the wiki are leading anywhere yet. I'd like to know what this "Incognito" theme looks like.

    Did you do a full wipe when flashing it? Their website states that this and all future releases will require it.

    Ive never tried sapphires roms before, will the new 1.0 work on CW?

    Their website has clockwork installation instructions. Looks like it should. Though the instructions say to boot into recovery, not install from the app.

    Since i made the jump from recovery to CW, that is the reason i have passed on sapphire roms. I was thinking that older roms didn't work with CW, but i won't swear to it.

    Clockwork has effectively replaced SPRecovery for almost everything. I would be surprised if any future releases did not support it.

    I know the last release didn't work from ROM Manager with the newest clockwork recovery. I think you had to flash a previous version. It doesn't say anything about having to do that on their site though.

    Same here, apps didn't restore from market though. Bummer. Setting up now and trying out the Incognito theme. The ROM is really smooth, haven't even touched any settings or overclocked it at all.

    edit: all paid apps are showing in the market. Cachemate (paid version) has only shown on SS 4.6 and now Sapphire 1.0. sweet, tired of using cachecleaner

    Downloads for themes are marked backwards as SPR is in the ROM Manager section and vice versa.

    Damn i'm gone for 2 hours...

    I am more excited to flash this baby up than I've been in a long time!

    damn, and I'm having such a good time on Insanely Clean 1.3 too (Review to come!)

    Great work sapphire team! So appreciative of the work you guys do. OOO do I spy lockscreen music controls?

    I feel the exact same way! Never flashed Sapphire before, but I hear so many positive things...and now its reached 1.0! I'm on it!

    running the droidx theme over this now. running smooth. only thing i wish was that the battery percentage was shipped to the left so on the themes it looks centered better, had to turn that option off.
  23. philsfan

    also, droidx theme needs the black text update. a lot of the in-program boxes have black box with black text. other than that, ROM is running so friggin smooth, great stuff guys
  24. Sniffle

    Sniffle Newbie

    change the text color in Settings>Gem Settings>Notification Colors
  25. philsfan

    philsfan Newbie

    i did. i'm not talking about notification colors though. i'm talking about certain boxes that are in app's. for example, go into root explorer at look at the "mount r/w" box, it's dark grey box with black text. see what i'm saying? or a better example, go into gmail and into an email, at the bottom all the boxes, archive, delete, and the backwards and forwards arrows are grey boxes with black letters.

    this was an issue with a previous rom and jrummy put out an update.zip to changed the colors to white. maybe i'll try it with this rom and report back
