    the droid can run gingerbread because the unlocked bootloader allows for aosp roms with the custom kernels that run with gingerbread. the locked bootloader of the droid x does not allow for the same level of modding.

    For now the only roms running 2.3.3 for the original Droid are CM7 and LiQuiD GingerBread. HTTP://www.liquidsmoothroms.com
    CM7 forum can be found on this site under android hacking > custom roms. I believe gingerbread is available for DroidX but I think its a hybrid system.

    Check the hacking > Droid x forums, I haven't been up to date on DX since I sold it awhile ago, so I could be completely wrong tho.

    Looks like gb isn't available for DX, only gb themes.

    As was stated above, the D1 and DX are different in that the bootloader wasn't locked on the D1, hence its popularity and long life.
