Progress info (as of 2015-12-14):
TLDR; Saygus is now working with their own team of engineers to finally finish the V² and is planning to show recent versions of the device at the CES 2016 in Las Vegas in January.
During the last months Saygus has faced several challenges and had many ups and downs with their recent manufacturing "partner". Finally Saygus decided to end that partnership, set up their own team of engineers and is doing the major parts of hard- and software development by their own team now. As you could already see on Twitter, Saygus has put up a new sign on their building and extended their office in Salt Lake City by two more floors, in order to have more room for the new engineering team. Additionally they are getting support by Qualcomm and extended the on-site team in China.
Some of you recently dicovered Saygus on the exhibitors list for the CES 2016. Until now the attendance of Saygus at the CES isn't completely certain, since it's heavily dependend on the overall progress during the next few weeks and Saygus definitely wants to show some recent versions of the device there.
I'm not trying to find excuses for Saygus behaviour towards their customers, broken promises in the past and slow refunds with this post. I still keep my original pre order from early February and don't doubt, that Saygus is still working on the V². As soon as I get my hands on the final device or some more progress details, I'll let you know.
If you have been waiting more than four weeks for your refund and haven't seen your money yet, feel free to contact me in order to speed things up!
In order to start the development, we (the Saygus V² community) will have to wait until we receive our devices, so that we can gather detailed information about the exact hardware, kernel, recovery, etc.
See a guide for porting CM here: Cyanogenmod Guide
Information taken from screenhots/videos found on the internet (state: mid 2015).
As soon as the V² is released, I will try to collect all useful resources and links here.
Maybe you will also find a CyanogenMod, Sailfish OS, Firefox OS or Ubuntu Touch here. But we'll see. ;)
