    This will likely not occur until motorola releases the kernel for 2.3 or there is a leak of it. The reason is we cannot change the kernel since we have a locked bootloader, it doesn't play well when we do.

    I expect Motorola will be working on a 2.3 rom though and once it is leaked then we will begin getting roms for it.

    Heh, all these ROMs got people forgetting we have a locked bootloader.

    Don't expect a 2.3 kernel anytime soon.

    It's the truth though. You bought into a phone with a locked bootloader, so you deal with it and wait. Nothing more you can do.

    This will give you a tiny taste of Gingerbread. The word predictions are limited to your contact names and user dictionary, though. Works well, other than that.

    Edit: Fabolous has released one with working predictions. It's in the Droid Applications section here.

    I agree, we all knew what we were buying (locked bootloader), but the next super nice 4.3" display Droid phone may not be Moto's we just have to wait and see.

    In the meantime there is lots of customizing that can be done with the current 2.3.340 and above. Of course its easy for me since I have no idea what it takes, but we also know we have excellent ROM builders and hackers on our side.
