The ROM here is based on combining say's CM6 port for Motoroi with an initial source build I've been working on with help from stlifey. It's based on milaq's 0.10 release with manual bugfixes. It is usable but has some quirks and rough edges.
The next step is to incorporate those manual fixes into my build tree, figure out how to fork the git repositories in my local repo, and upload a working build tree to github.
odex and deodex versions provided (odex recommended for users)
The install procedure is similar to CM 6.3.0-RC3 but use the files from post #1224 and follow the additional instructions there to apply the 720p recording fix. Themes for previous versions are incompatible and must be updated.

CM 6.3.0-RC3 Fixes camera/camcorder crashes that appeared in RC2
Because of the camera and camcorder problems with RC2, I've now rebuilt using Motorola's media libraries again. I think this restores camera. Camcorder also works now with a higher quality than before. We need to get to get a media_profiles.xml that works better for our phone. In RC3, I just took the one from milaq's A853.
Known issues in CM 6.3.0-RC3:
FM Radio doesn't work
Gallery button doesn't work
Camcorder doesn't work well
Screenshot in power menu always produces a black image
Changes since CM 6.1.2
Android Keyboard is fixed (Thanks peshovec)
Torch/power-widget uses autofocus led
Linear vibration for haptic feedback vibrations <150ms
Selecting 1% battery increments is harmless (but doesn't work)
Wi-Fi fixes (now works for the AP I was having trouble with)
Korean IME removed (can provide as update if needed)
USB menu has been updated with new translations and resource fixes (Usb.apk)
Reboot recovery from the power menu works.
Hold volume-down during boot to enter fastboot
Bug fixes to app2ext and link2sd support
app2ext is nolonger automatic (you must create /sd-ext/app directory).
Link2SD support (you must create /sd-ext/link2sd directory)
*Note about ext4 support: the huge_file option is *not* supported but is default for mkfs.ext4. Nadlabak explained how to disable huge_file on existing ext4 filesystems. Alternately just create ext2/3 partitions and use OpenRecovery-XT720 SD Card Utilities to upgrade the ext2 partition to ext4. Warning: the other OpenRecovery/Androidiani's don't understand ext4 on XT720 (thanks fjfalcon for adding ext4 support to OR for XT720). Also be aware that not many XT720 ROMs understand ext4 yet--hellmongers XDAspecial RC2 *does*.
Place all zips inside /sdcard/OpenRecovery/updates
Boot to OpenRecovery-XT720
Make a nandroid of system, data, cache (and SD data if you use it)

sileshn's themes for milaq's CM 6.3.2 are reported to work in RC2 with the caveat that the reboot to bootloader menu option disappears from the power menu. None of the changes in RC3 should change that. I don't think I've seen reports either way about sileshn's themes for XT720 CM 6.1.2 yet.
Very stable sorry i looked every where cant find radio apk that will work.
Thanks! Don't waste time on the radio yet, it won't work because to compile CM6, I had to use A853's libaudio.so which lacks radio support. After the source tree is fixed we can figure out how to use the XT720 libaudio.so
Yeah, but when I call something alpha, it's merely hopefully working. When you call something an alpha it's something more like a release candidate. I think this still has a way to go, but everyone in the other threads got pretty persistently insistent on starting releases. I'll dogfood it.
ok just found out the hard way, do not select 1% battery increments, or it doesnt recognise it bein charged at all. just showed red battery with [X] and would turn off. when plugged in it said charging 0%. so stay away from that option. :/ atleast it stayed on while plugged in so i could undo it and now charging 60%.
Any suggestions as if I should go back to an original 2.1 SBF ?
Any feedback/review on raw performance and performance degraduation (memory leaks and such) over time ?
Thnaks for the effort !
as long as you didnt flash a Korean sbf to start with your fine, just apply in OR. and the roms pretty quick, give it a shot. the customization is huge. im loving the full 360 degree rotation, ive been waiting a long time for that haha opens every app almost instantly, it boots fast, i got 1220 on quadrant at 1 ghz, but the only thing i miss is the built in task killer when holding home. that came in handy. im still testing performance, its lookin good tho. well worth a try, i know ive been waiting to taste some delicious cyanogenmod. and boy is it good. haha
