Read this thread. You'll see help from many members of A/C actively testing and helping fix bugs. A BIG THANKS to everyone here as well.

Without these people and others like them working, none of us would know enough about CDMA Android to create something like this.

Inadvertently deleted the link to the bootable raw dump. Here it is again

Don't install this unless you know what I mean by Raw Dump, or you won't be very happy.

Won't be getting a camera, and MMS looks doubtful. Known tricks with the apn aren't working lol.

But full screen weather when it's sunny flat out kicks ass.

Working -
Voice
SMS
WiFi
Bluetooth loads (charging an earpiece to test fully)
GPS maybe. If not I believe Flipz has that working so I'll ask him if I can't get it.
I didn't do jack and all market apps are showing, out of the box.
Access to Verizon's market :)
All the helicpotor Homescreen functions work.
Fully rooted, latest SU whitelist seems to be working.

Stripping out Verizon's boot animation then I'll whip up a signed zip.

Then I work out Apps2Sd and make a jit add on option.

No camera until we get a new kernel or the source.
Someone who knows more about Android and apn settings will have to fix MMS, or it will wait until I figure it out.

Download link in first post for whoever wants to test

Someone be sure to tell me if it flashes correctly. It was built on the device then pulled back off. Should be ok.

@Darkshneider - good luck with the interview!

is Visual voicemail Working with this build

Nope. VVM will only work with an official Sprint build AFAIK. I have the original Verizon VVM I pulled out if anyone wants to screw around with it.

Rename it from VVMStub.apk.txt to VVWStub.apk and push it to /system/app/

Cool. Be sure to post up anything you add in. Does the gallery work well?

Is there a reason why some of my paid apps are missing. Like aFirewall for instance?

Not seeing that here. I just searched aFirewall and it shows in my phone. Search for Barcode Scanner. With no camera it wont work, but that's always my suggested test to check if protected apps are showing. No need to download it, just wondering if it shows up for you.

Alright, download round 2... FIGHT!
Good luck!
