    I am an IT Manager for a software development comp
    Time to try something new. Downloading and backing up now.

    Edit to add: Everything runs great. I got my theme converted. The only problem I have is I can't change any xml without the browser, market, drocap, and a few other apps FC. I will have to keep working on that so I can release this for rubiX. I may submit my black bar for testing though.

    Very exited for this. RubiX has been my preferred ROM for the DX so far and it just keeps getting better.

    Another great RubiX ROM, they just keep getting better and better. I was coming from 1.6 so I thought I would try without wiping the data and so far have had no issues and it is up and running great. I went ahead and got Quadrant scores on this (after about an hour after a reboot), base was right at 1,400, I applied my Overclocking after that and it was 1,700. These are just a touch better than what I was seeing on 1.6.

    Great work again on this one.

    I highly reccomend this rom although I have yet to flash since I'm at work ....I have used other versions of rubix and am a fan!.....once you flash this you will lose tour black glass look since the rom replaces it but I believe you can throw that back over the rom if that's the look you want or you can try others

    All I had to do is wipe catch coming from 1.6 works great its way more stable and a bit quicker too. I also love the reboot option in the power menu its legit! Idk if its new but the zipalign command is super cool also. I have this with sephtins blackbar mod curved and lcd density at 210 and its super slick stable and fast. Overclocking seems way more stable also.

    I tried the Apex rom first but it kept crashing, Then went to rubix 1.6 which was stable. now Im on 1.8.6 and its great.
    After a Day of runig and leaving it overnigt my Quadreant score is 1376.
    i probably wont overclock as its already plenty fast.

    this ROM Rocks !

    I have seen where others on other forums are having trouble with other keyboards ..the update keyboard files in the folder this rom puts on your SD card are not working either....sephtin is said to be looking for a fix to this so hopefully soon but you can try it out and see if it works ....just make sure you have a backup handy

    Yewwtah!
    Questions guys, my battery life today has been terrible since upgrading to 1.8.6. Down to 40% an hour before lunch. It was never a problem with 1.6. Is anybody else having that problem or was today just a fluke?

    i am reading the other forum and apparently some people may be having poor batt life due to the fact that for some reason drods sysctl.conf tweaks are not applying .....this may just be the cause ....in any event he is aware and there is said to be working on a possible patch....i have seen mixed reviews on the batt life and again i dont know if this is the main cause but maybe
