Is the CWM 6.0.2.7 suitable for d2vzw? I only ask because ROM manager has not been updated yet to the newest.

Just use TWRP or whatever you are currently using.

Here's a sexy pic of my phone running the preview: http://i.imgur.com/X52Sj32.jpg

Just a heads up, don't expect any data or voice to work. The preview is meant for GSM phones to begin with.

It's not smooth at all. It can feel buttery at times and a brick wall at others.

hate to hear that. i will wait to flash until it gets better. who am i kidding i will probably flash tonight. one question, does it support mobile data? a buddy of mine ran ubuntu on his nexus 4 and it doesnt have mobile data yet. i assume it does since this isnt quite the same as that.

No data yet.

This OS has a lot more serious problems to work out first.

I can't see this being a daily driver for a while. At least a few weeks.
