What happened to this forum?
I have been gone for six months, since I got a Android for my personal phone but I also carry my blackberry for some business stuff.
Hate to come off sounding like a troll.
But what happened to this forum? There used to be soo much activity in this hybrid space.
By comparison, when a dev drops a new Rom for an android device within 2 hours there is the same amount of activity as there would be here in a month.
I hope this is temporary, because I hope to return for Blackberry 10, if it suits my needs.
I feel bad for the devs here though, you put so much effort in putting together your releases for soo few people, but you would be considered Gods on the XDA space.

I feel like a ROM for Android is much different since it can drastically enhance/add features to the device when a hybrid OS is just combining radios and creating better battery life. It's still quite a time consuming task though.
Either way, turtles.Perhaps life is just that...a dream and a fear.

Yeah, it's true. ROMs on Android is MUCH different than hybrid's on BBOS.
And with BB hybrid OS's of the past, it was really done as an effort to make the phone/OS run better.
Right now with 7.1, things are pretty solid. I don't think we're seeing the same sort of value proposition in wanting to install a hybrid OS.
That said, I bow to all those who put time into building hybrid OS's for BB on the quest for OS perfection.Kevin Michaluk

Either way, I continue on my quest for BlackBerry OS perfection on the OS6 platform. I simply can't live without the fabulous battery life I enjoy on my 9700.
It would be nice, though, if maybe we saw some more activity in terms of OS files to work with (cough cough).

It's very noticeable as you read that some are "still" waiting for an "OFFICIAL" OS release. As stated, much respect for all of you that have taken the time and effort to put together an OS hybrid- whether it's for my current device or not.From the head MOFO in charge:
