    The title just brought a smile to the hacking communities face. 2.3 aka Gingerbread has just hit Androids Open Source Projects repository. It will be just a matter of time before the community reaps the benefits of all the delicious Gingerbread ROMS that will be pouring in any day now. Ok, any hour now.

    Endgadget reports that coders are being asked to "wait a few hours or a few days" before downloading to balance out the server load. Yeah like thats going to happen.

    Good luck to all the developers out there!

    Nah, FroYo was a more important update than Gingerbread is.

    Anyone have any news what the differences might be? Not announced upgrades, but actual tangible differences from having used it. My phone is running so well with Froyo (with the exception of Google Maps) that I am hesitant to change if there are not any real differences.

    Slight thread-hijack but you did try the new version of Google Maps that was released today, right? If not, try that.

    I can't believe no one has mention of a gingerbread rom for the droid in the works so far unless I've missed it. I'm syncing the source now to see if I can come up with something tonight, I've been practicing on froyo all week.

    Now how about ROMs that don't have a proven history of problems? :)

    This is great, and the dev community will have our backs in no time. Plenty of Gingerbread before Christmas. :D

    However, we have yet to hear that there will be Gingerbread cookies to feed the stock Andy. I'm hoping so, but we'll have to see!

    Probably not till it gets updated -- but with the slew of updates on the Market lately I imagine if it's been updated recently it's already GB compatible.
