I posted a while back in another thread that he helped build some apps in the apex build so that was a sign. Add this news to that list of signs.

    It's not ready for primetime just yet. He on rootzwiki forums said he'll need testers sometime this week. So it's coming, but there are a laundry list of things that need fixed before it goes live.

    no problem! but thanks should go to all the great people working on cyanogen. gotta hand it to them keeping at it for almost a year now when lesser folks might have thrown in the towel by now and moved on.

    and not to veer off topic, but news and moments like this is why android will always be better than any other mobile platform in my eyes.

    Glad this is coming around, surprised it took this long...I understand wanting to use your own Kernels, but sometimes you work with what the lord (moto..hmm that's probably not a good comparison...) gives you..

    Am I the only one here who doesn't understand what all the hype about CyanogenMod is vs. any other Gingerbread ROM?

    I'm not doubting that it is a nice ROM, but what makes this SO MUCH better than ApeX 2.0 or Liberty Gingerbread?

    CM7 and its predecessors was one of the most popular, most customizable and useable ROMs for a variety of devices. The cvpcs team is an incredible set of minds that knew what a good custom ROM should be simply by asking its users, then learning how to port it to a ton of devices. It was rare in the cellphone world for someone to NOT know what CM was. Back in my Dinc days I had cm7 and it was awesome(actually it mighta been cm6 then). The Droid X1 would be an awesome device for cm7 just as much as APEX or Liberty already is. Its another one of the top popular custom ROMs made. Maybe one day you'll see for yourself along with the rest of us because it if does actually gets out, I will be in line. Yes I will drop Liberty in a heartbeat once CM gets cranking on our X's. Then we will all be crying for MIUI next,lol

    From what i understand, CM7 tries to stick close to the AOSP ie very clean unbloated android.

    While i love the new motoblur UI in GB, it still has tons of services that i have no desire to run on my phone etc. I will definitely be giving CM7 on the DX a try when it gets a few more bugs worked out.

    So does the newest version of ApeX. Both ApeX & Liberty have always also allowed you to add back in any Blur that you want IF you want. From what I have seen & read from other people's reviews, some AOSP Android services are horrible (Gallery, Camera, etc.) & they actually prefer to add back in the Blur Gallery or Camera app.

    Again, I don't doubt that CM7 is nice, but I just don't understand why everyone always drools all over it & anytime I ask, I never hear an answer that is something other great ROMs don't also do. I understand that CyanogenMod may have done it first & all other popular ROMs may have taken a page from their book, but as we all know, doing something first doesn't always mean you do it best. If that were the case, we would all have BlackBerries & iPhones instead of phones running a superior OS that came out a little later.

    I'm with El Jefe, now that GB is here I have no real interest in CM7. I love it on my Nookcolor, but unless it adds battery life or something major I'm quite pleased with the official GB

    The best example I can give you is what happened with the Mustang. Saleen took a stock Mustang and improved the look, aerodynamics, suspension, under the hood performance, improved and revamped interior, and finally "eye candy paint jobs". So much so that if you see a Stock Mustang and a Saleen Mustang side by side there is no comparison. That is what CM7 is for Android: Improved performance, optimized, and added features. Software releases in any field will always improve their product with updates, patches, fixes and improvements: whether from the OEM or from aftermarket sources. I have not delved into custom ROMS, but this is what will make me jump in.

    I agree wholeheartedly! I actually finally broke down and installed liberty after sitting on stock deodexed over the weekend and now I almost wanna just flash my backup and wait for a good version of CM7 to drop. Liberty and Apex are great but if CM7 is able to they're able to keep the real-working customizable notification bar toggles and T-Mobile theme engine that everyone else on CM7 enjoys then it's probably gonna take a version of MIUI for my X to get me to flash something else!

    That comparison doesn't really hold up though because you are using a stock Mustang vs. a Saleen Mustang. I am not talking about Stock GB vs. CM7, I am talking about ApeX (for instance) vs. CM7.
    That would be more like a Saleen Mustang vs. a Mustang Cobra if you want to use your comparison terms.

    Oops! You are right, I misread your question (I thought it was a comparison to stock GB).
