    Is MMS looking promising? I asked because I'm thinking of switching from CM7 to this if it is fixed

    Thanks for the work. I would rather go to this ROM than CM7 once MMS gets up and running.

    How is the functionality of CM6? (related to bugs and issues)

    It seems like it would be more stalbe, because this phone will eventually be updated to Froyo.

    Is CM6 more stable than the build of CM7?

    I didnt see a diff when it came to stability. I like cm7 so I flashed back to it. CM7 is more of a side project as the dev (isaac) has time to work on it, and he has other irons in the fire. Pip is actively working on cm6, so it has that advantage.

    Yeah I know it's just a side project for Isaac. So I hope CM6 will eventually become superior in stability.

    I might try it just to see what it is like lol.

    I flashed to this yesterday after reading about the CM7 situation..and I think its just as good as CM7. The only thing I miss is the applications menu in CM7. Other than that I'm satisfied. I thought I'd miss the CM7 keyboard but the one in CM6 is great too! Nice work Pip and IsaacJ!

    Flashed last night. You had me at "Hello". MMS or not I'm in, absolutely fantastic. I am completely in love with the keyboard.

    So if I'm reading this correctly ... the only thing not working correctly (at least for now) is MMS ... correct?

    What about USB tethering using PdaNet or EasyTether etc. ?

    i tried that once, it works just fine. personally i'd be careful with wifi tethering, as others have stated it's not meant to be run on our hw. the phone heating up like that....is VERY bad. i wouldnt wifi tether my ascend ever for that reason alone.

    i no longer have service on my ascend, i couldnt test anything etc. would make it really hard to fix. there has been a lot done already for mms. someone with service needs to continue and debug where we are at.

    btw i only used barnacle. any temp increase is too much usually for a phone. in my opinion.

    Dont think I would be much help on debugging, but I'd be glad to test for you :)

    The best way to test on the Ascend is to get a very, very large rock and smash it as hard as possible onto the front of the phone. I've gotten great results from that.
