Sorry for the stupid noob post. My computer was redone (new WIndows 7 install) and I lost al my links and information. I had read there was a leak of the 2.3 Gingerbread for teh Facinate, that included all the usually bloatware. This was quite a while ago. Since its now obvious that Verizon will mot be updating our phones with 2.3 :icon_evil: I was wanting to root my phone. Does anyone have a link to the files for teh Gingerbread OS? and how to install it? I use to have a link to the Android forum, but I cant even find the forum on the web site anymore. :icon_eek: Also...Does a phone have to be rooted to have the Gingerbread OS?
