    Ya'll may have already seen this, but punk.kaos over at XDA apparently got Gingerbread running on his Eris. Here's the link if you'd like to see the pic (probably have to be a member) and the DL link for the "ROM"
    I'm sure some talented developers here would love to try and cook something up from the build.

    Yeah he is using some trickery and magic to get the pre-compiled SDK image running. Same was done with Froyo when the SDK was released.

    I did see that, but it is not really alleged since there is a link for it up. It has happened. Call Mic does not work, but data and 3G work. Sucks that I'll be putting GB on my girls Eris before my OG Droid:icon_evil:

    So, basically, we could have Gingerbread relatively quickly, yeah?

    Yes and no. What we would have if a dev did this on the Droid would be a very rough and unoptimized version of Gingerbread running on the Droid. It would more than likely be slower than Froyo builds out there now and about as stable as the San Andreas fault. If your Droid is used for testing and you wanna check out some new features and the like then ya I guess it would be cool. Until the AOSP drops though and a true ROM is built off of source OR a stock replacement like BB from an OTA I wouldn't get my hopes up.

    You can run 2.3 in the emulator supplied with the SDK, though the system.img is crippled that they supply in the SDK.
    From what I've read on the above eris rom, it is the Sdk system.img hacked and with some other kernel. Definitely a setup I wouldn't run on something I used/depended on.

    Definitely not alleged. This is the same guy who was the first one to get Froyo booted too. He's very gifted. He does not care that it is not stable yet as he is a developer and has a bunch of spare phones lying around. But, this is why they make nandroid backups people. Where is the sense of adventure? LoL
