Sent via Tapatalk on my CM7'ed DX2
I was testing the first pre-alpha build. That was before DZK's classes became a bear. Since then (about 2 months ago roughly), he is concentrating on his classes. As soon as things lighten up for him (read: probably summer break) he will probably pick things back up. I talked with him last night and he is still committed to CM7DX2 and CM9DX2. Something else that will help, I have a new laptop (Linux) that I can begin helping him out (as much as I can with my limited knowledge). All we are asking is patience. We both understand that everyone with a DX2 wants the rebase of CM7 and the release of CM9. With CM9 though, there are going to be some major hurdles that will have to be overcome since CM9 is a complete code re-write and the fact that CM9 is based on ICS AOSP. ICS does things much differently than Gingerbread.
For those who are new to the DX2 community, welcome! Also, when DZK went to work on CM7, he had the Alpha build out in roughly a week and the stable RC release about 3 days after that. He is a committed DX2 developer and wants to provide a smooth, working, and as close to flawless, CM9 ROM as possible.
For those that are chomping at the bit for CM9, think about this. Would you rather have CM9 in a pre-alpha state that DOESN'T work and just looks pretty, or would you rather have CM9 in a WORKING state? Personally, I would rather have CM9 in a working state.
The pre-alpha that I was testing had MANY problems. During the time that he did put into it, before school became a bear, he was able to address a good number of the items on the "does not work" punch list.
For everyone in the DX2 community, thank you for your support and understanding.
Thanks for the reply dude. im in school too but apparently dont have it as bad as him. no rush on CM9, CM7 will serve us good until he has the appropriate time to work on and perfect it. School > Android always and forever (although i may sometimes wish it wasn't ). best wishes to DZK
