Sapphire custom ROM on Droid X

No, that wasn't a typo -- the Droid X, despite the manufacturer's best efforts, has been spied running a custom ROM, namely the Sapphire AOSP 2.2 ROM (see the Sapphire team's post here in the forums).  We love seeing the various hacking and independent development projects on all Android phones, but this one is a bit extra special since the Droid X was supposedly the unhackable phone.  Next I imagine we'll see dogs and cats living together and all sorts of madness!
