Dear Community,

I decided to not continue developing for the x-mini pro for now.
Which basically means I will not release any new ROMs and will not provide any more support regarding the old ones.
The decision has been hard but I just can't put up with it anymore. There is a group of people who are very ungrateful and even send cuss at me to release updates or giving support and so on. I am not a slave and I am doing all of this besides my work, university and life. I am doing this in my freetime and I don't need to put up with this.
This doesn' mean everybody in the forums is like that the most people appreciate the work and thank me so let me return the thank you and thank you guys for your support.
Another reason for me leaving is the fact that my work is being used and modified, which is perfectly fine but using the same and calling it faster or better or tweaked or whatever else and later turns out nothing is changed and no credits annoys me.
Besides that I have been working on basically all the core functionality of RomManager and I feel like the project was taken from me while I had my exams and this makes me sad. However this is the only project I will keep working on as it is MY Baby.

As for all the people who supported me, I want to thank you for the great time I had.
As for my Donators I will provide you with links whenever (I don't know when or if) I make a new version for my personal use. Whatever you do with the link is your free decision. So all Donators thank you very much for your support!! I honestly appreciate it!

If I feel like working on ROM's again I'll let you know but for now I need a break from this.

Ok bro no prob with that, if that annoys you, ill just stop working on it, but have this clear, my idea was improving it all i can, helping you, not stealing your idea, seems like it's a sin, so good luck and good bye.
Im gonna commit last changes, and then delete sources, you can delete my svn account
If that made feel you sad, think on all the time I put on rom manager, and now i feel like i lost my fkn time on some that wasn't even mine, and you say was taken from you?
I won't never get my time back again
At least i learned some android programming, and thank you for that.

Cyanocomb it's not based on cyano or slade's cm6 it's directly based on nAa work, anyway, i give credits to slade for anything from him on my roms, also my rom's have a Real improvement, it's not just text without sense, and froyocomb has been discontinued,can you read before talk?. I don't really know if slade it's talking about my roms, but i dont take him work, and no credits, on all my roms he was part of credits. Also for avoid all this, ill directly use nAa sources, like i did on CyaNoComb.
Also watch the way you write, sometimes people can get it offensive or annoy
thanks.

Slade... thankyou for all your hard work. Those who keep plaguing you for updates aren't worth their salt. I started as a novice and managed perfectly fine with your ROMs, every update was a pleasure worth waiting for.

Good luck with your exams and your future!

Oh **** ! There goes another one. I can't for the love of everything that's holy understand why some people can't follow a handful of basic, common sense i might add, rules. The worst part is that everyone must now pay for a bunch of idiots who couldn't keep their mouths shut.

Really nice work Slade, u made a difference. Good luck in school and if u have a change of heart u know where to find us. All the best to you mate !

Slade: All the best with whatever you do. You have some serious skills at this, and I hope one day you can find your way back to our humble device.

**** the haters. They're not even worth your time.

Enjoy your vaction/retirement/whatever-you-want-to-call-it.

All the best.

Thank you for all the hard work slade, and good luck in whatever you decide to do next! It makes me genuinley sad that you're leaving, but as I browse around in these fora, I do understand that you feel unappreciated...
Remember though, that some of us read alot more than we write in here, and therefore go quite unnoticed, as opposed to the fellas that post before they think. But we exist and appreciate your work alot! Take care mate.

    Lots of love from Brazil, Slade. All my friends use your ROM for their mini pro, but very few post here, so I'll speak for them.

    Your work here was much apreciated and you gave our little device an extra breath with your ROM.

    I hope you decide to ignore the ignorants and reconsider the harsh decision of leaving your another baby. Take your time. We will be here for you.
