-No HTC Dialer - Again, this is based on too many htc custom jars, try one of those other builds.

*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.
