While we have some awesome developers and some great roms for our phone.. Where have all the developers gone? With the exception of the crew in sturdy click, and framework for the miui port, it seems like most devs have moved on to new platforms.

Have folks given up on the x? Has motorola won with their never to be unlocked bootloader? (2nd init helped pave the way for a few roms, don't get me wrong)

Maybe that it's becuase I was used to the HTC scene where a new rom was out almost every other day.
Is it this forum vs the drama of xda?

Don't let this device die. It has so much life left!

Stalled or died? It's never been better. CM7, OMGB, OMFGB, MIUI, Liquid, Chevy's rom. And there's still the og devs.

The X is by no means dead. But if devs prioritize based on forum posts then development may have suffered some due to the overwhelming concerns of battery life and percentages, etc. These phones have computing power and functionality that exceeds the first couple laptops I owned. We are fortunate to get what we do from our little batteries. Lets pimp these phones out and see what they can do!

Yes we have the roms, when was the last the majority of these were updated though? June?

I agree with the next poster, battery life can be a killer of roms.

This topic was simply meant to be a question, I am not throwing any devs under the bus.

I thinks what I am mainly seeing, who knows, they are probably working on a super duper mega rom that will blow the pants off this device.

Yeah, I Do not miss my 386 laptop suitcase.

Every rom that is been built people don't focus on the rom and what it can do. They always focus on battery life, that's all they care about. Why would you even build a rom when people are gonna complain that it sucks because the battery life is horrible.
It isn't everyone though some people get really excited about the rom and the features and what it does for them in there daily life. My phone is a tool for me that helps me in my life. I am not stuck on battery life.
It would be nice if the forums could have a section devoted to better life discussion for roms to make features easier read about and simplify rom selection.
Cheers to the dev's that we do have.

ChevyNo1 just came up with an update two days ago, CM7 has nightlies. MIUI weeklies get ported every week by Framework43, and he and RevNumbers are actively working to port 2nd Init ROMs to the new GB kernel.
However, I am concerned that Fab hasn't updated ApeX from RC2 in a while.

Battery life is different for everyone on every day. It's like benchmarks.. They should not be used solely to reccomend/or not recommended a rom.

You should follow @Bigxie so you don't have to be concerned. "@bigxie: I'm still around, but yeah, haven't been to the forums in a while, a little busy. Still hope to look at 602 this weekend though."

OP, I'm not sure why you feel this way man. I've never been more excited about owning my X than I am now. As others have stated, 2nd init has opened up doors that were locked for a long time, and now they are persistently working on getting it running on the GB kernel. You should get a twitter account and check out the chatter between the big hitters....you won't be concerned anymore.

Also, I believe "discussion" type threads like this are supposed to be posted in the general Droid X forum, not the "developer" forum. I was under the impression that this is where rom release threads and development discussion goes. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I suppose one of the mods can move the thread if needed.

386? You're dating yourself there friend! LOL! I wasn't even going that far back. I was referring to a circa 2000 thinkpad.

If you're gonna try to run you better set your sights farther than Canada! And I think you might be misinformed of the cost of their health care. LOL
