Now that were root, is anyone working on a pure android experience yet?

Doubt it. A recovery needs to be made first, and an .sbf needs to be leaked in case an "attempt" at AOSP creates a brick.
Gingerbread source could already be pulled and they may be looking at the proprietaries needed to be pulled from the phone.....but nothing more than that I suspect.
No recovery...no way to flash a new ROM
No .sbf....no way to test, re-test and re-test a ROM before releasing it.
Don't get me wrong....I would LOVE an AOSP ROM for the Droid 3.
And the leaked .sbf is signed by test keys instead of release keys, so even if it was English it would be of no use.
I just want to make sure that everyone is aware of how much effort it will take and that not all the pieces are in place (or even developed) to allow for an AOSP ROM to be compiled.
Recovery (for installing) and an .sbf (for recovering....LOL) are going to be required before we see ROMs. On top of that...either an unlocked bootloader or a 2nd-init method will need to be found.
Once those are accomplished we can look at pulling the proprietary files from the stock ROM and figuring out how to properly overlay those on a pull of the AOSP Gingerbread branch from Google/Android.
It's going to be a while....and everyone needs to relax and enjoy the phone.....clean it up (bloatware), start looking at replacing some of the stock apps with AOSP versions, etc...
We may see a few edits (where someone creates a script to re-theme the framework and pull stock/push aosp apps to the phone via ADB and such......relatively soon.
