i'll wait thanks
I know it's a little early to pass judgment on Gingerbread but so far I'm completely disappointed. I think Google is just holding the "real" update to squash iphone frenzy when it comes to Verizon. I mean we got some stupid highlight at the end of menus which looks like crap btw. The theming is incomplete and doesn't really make any sense.
Im sure this leak is just that a leak. Some one at Google is watching the GB frenzy here and within the og d1 community and laughing. Iphones blow, up until the 4 you could not change wallpaper wtf jobs.
Right now I am happy with mmod frg83d and the gb look.

As always with Google most of the "improvements" tend to be technical and not creative... it could be a long while until you see a UI update that is significant, usually these companies stay with what works.
Look at Apple's mobile OS, it hasn't fundamentally changed in 4 versions, yet they still tout it around like the newest, greatest thing to buy.
At first, I thought iPhone was cool, but then I was like, blah... then I heard about the Droid... and at first I was like blah, new system, blah...
Then my boyfriend got the Eris. I was like WHOA. THIS IS COOLER THAN THE iPHONE! The personalization and functionality is never-ending. So I got the Droid.
I've only had it for not even half a year now, and I'm totally engulfed in modding this thing.
Currently, the most stable thing I've got to run USING Launcher Pro is my current:
metick's Stock FRG83 ODexed with his stock 800 kernel. I'm too scared to put Chevy's back on for fear of battery drain. But it's STABLE.
My Video Recorder is FINALLY WORKING without freezing up! YAY! NO MORE BATTERY PULLS....
And best of all... Launcher Pro Redraws still happen... BUT... They're down to under 15 seconds. Sometimes as fast as 5-10 seconds. And they happen minimally at that. I've also found that you have to play with your Launcher Pro Settings to get minimal redraws. It varies from Device to Device.
Anyway... I would love to have Gingerbread... but... I'm so afraid of instability.
I'm excited for Gingerbread to be out. And I'm excited because I'm hoping Verizon hears my wishes for a Droid X Squared to be created. It would be the Droid X with a DualCore Processor. Plus they could get rid of the those solid buttons and make softkeys like the Droid. Ooooh. Yum. Pretty. Upgrade time is coming up quick!
YAY FOR GINGERBREAD!
Yay for Metick's ability to get something FOR REAL STABLE!
Psssst. Its UD but true ginger bread
Boot looop loooooop looooooop
