Occasionally when you longpress the volume up/down keys to skip through songs when the screen is off, it will begin to continually skip and never stop. This is a result of some problems in the multi-threaded code. I had thought that I had fixed this but apparently it still exists. The best way to stop it for now is to simply tap the volume button a few times in the direction you were skipping, as the “key released” messages will then be re-sent and clear out the event queue that causes this to happen.
I am currently working on trying to fix that, but hopefully you all can bear with me for now until it is fixed.
In this release, the problem appears to have persisted though is not as prevalent as before. I have also included an option in GEM settings to disable the feature altogether.
The kernels supported for this release have been custom built by cvpcs based on work done by P3Droid and Bekit. These are the only kernels officially supported by sapphire.

All bug reports and feature requests will be done through Bugzilla, an issue tracker hosted on this site. It requires a valid email to register (which is only used for tracking which users have what bugs), and provides a much better interface to report and track problems or features.
