    I remember reading about a port from the HTC espresso i believe, but I have not been able to find anything specific.. i have smoked glass 5.0.1 right now which looks awesome but i wouldn't mind replacing it with the sense UI overhaul..

    yes no bt, no wifi, calling out works great i hear, in coming calling is.... strange. They are CLOSE to figuring it out but not sure how close. I can live with out wifi and bt, but obviously i have to have it calling in. its getting faster and faster every day.

    they load new kernels to it and it is over clockable. its really cool. I have seen 3 vids, they are around the net, some posted here. HD vids of it running flash, the sense ui, the browser is fast, very slick. there is a little lag, but its probably just the sense ui itself, cause it has a bounce to it. when switching the windows it bounces. it does not do that if you have a home replacement app from it. there IS NO ETA right now, just kinda when its done

    yep, seems they are at a stand still since the forum is being updated, i mean the devs are working, but there have been no announcements. i heard there was a new build going around, its overclocked and fast, i dig it

    @ Radikal, you sure? He hasn't updated the title/first post since the first, but he has spoken once or twice in the thread. They said they have wifi "working" now but can not connect it to an app. I think they took parts from the Eris build to get it working. Not sure though, I only read a few pages toward the end of the thread...

    Well, you should ask in the thread. I am not involved in any way with this or any other rom. I was just posting the update from alldroid since someone asked.

    And yes, he is referring to google wave. I need to follow this as well...

    **UPDATE**

    For those wanting to get on to the wave...The google wave for the Passion Rom is now public. Do the following search in wave...

    with:public and tag:ALLDROID and tag:ZEUSDROID

    **EDIT** Don't know how to get rid of the smiley, but it should be "with : public" (but without the spaces)

    There will be 2. The second one is V2. I just followed both...
