Known Issues
-NO Exchange Sync. Try Haykuro's 6.0H build, a hero build or a rogers based build.
-No HTC Dialer - Again, this is based on too many htc custom jars, try one of those other builds.

Get more locales from Rogers ROM
Breathe, relax, and take a vacation
Clean this post

*all versions are released "when they are ready"

Tell me what's broken so I can get it squared away....keep it to just real bugs, not feature requests and such.

Standard Disclaimer....
You must have root.
I hope you know what you're doing by now.
No I will not fix your phone.
If you're not sure what Cupcake is or know a lot about flashing your phone, this may not be for you. Go read up on JF33 and get used to a stable officialish release.
I make no promises of deadlines, features, or general awesomeness. So don't be upset if the build isn't up yet or feature: blah doesn't work yet. I promise I'm working on it, and when it is working you will get an update.
I'm not gonna answer general questions here. This is the only post I'll update about the details of the latest build.

Thanks to: JesusFreke, xmoo, Haykuro, Stericson, disconnect, zinx, dapro, marcusmaximus, manup456, cyanogen and many others.
Without them I'd still be running a pretty boring phone. These guys paved the way for us to experiment and learn.

What's the differences with Cupcake? I remember reading back in February, that this would be the next development branch, but nothing specific in terms of roadmaps, TODOs, etc.

Hope you get the kinks out. I'll be glad to try it out once you release it. Thanks for putting in your time to get this working.

Possible 72 Locales (haven't tested them all and a lot seem to just be placeholders, but wow)
Both HTC and Google VK (English from older HTC build, not Chinese)
Wifi is broken right now, but shouldn't be by the time I release this.
Browser has working zoom
Market works.
I installed an app...paid apps and copy-protected apps are working as well.
Working Gtalk (No other IMs, but there's an app for that )
I am still working out some last minute bugs but I'll put something out in the morning, and by morning I mean after noon Central Time.

Thanks to: xmoo, Haykuro, and dapro, without them I'd still be running RC33.

Just one question ... have you used the latest haykuro/daproy-kernel (from Haykuro 5.0.1Gr3)? Otherwise tethering won't work because of missing netfilter/iptables support.

Screenshots look very promising

@TheDudeOfLife great news, have you plan to add exchange server from HTC build in your build ?Cause it's really practical to have contact/mail sync with this HTC tools.
