The problem with the Exchange support in the Sapphire Mail app is that it requires the entire custom HTC version of the core Android framework. The same goes for the HTC Dialer. I'd rather keep the open-source version, since the source code changes that HTC has made to the core are not publicly available.

I hear ya. Got any pointers for those of us that don't mind tainting the open source goodness with the HTC frameworks? :)

Badly need Exchange on JF 1.51 TMO

really a shame that noone has been able to include Exchange into JFs ROM, seriously, that would really make this phone complete. Understood most folks dont care about exchange, but for most techies, Exchange is a must to have good corporate e-mail and as much as people want to say Touchdown and Moxier are good, they just arent the same as the one from HTC. Any good soul out there want to make this happen:rolleyes:???

    what do you mean by the camera button force closes, like to take a picture?

    Just click the trackball instead of the camera button in the Camera app to take a picture.

    Cyan, I love your work. One question though. I cannot get my Bluetooth to work anymore on my BlueAnt since the last three builds. Anyone got any suggestions on how to make it work?
