    I can definitely understand your questions about the Gingerbread update. At this point in time there is no set release date but the release will be coming. Hope this helps. Thank you.

    Well, since the Bionic isn't rumored to drop until September, my guess is that we won't be seeing GB until 2012...

    No, only a leak for D2. Not the global version. If we tried to install it on our phones, there's a chance of bricking it beyond repair, past the ability of sbfing even.

    Incorrect. There are a bunch of ROMs for the D2G that are Gingerbread THEMED... But they're built on Froyo. There are no GB ROMs for the D2G.

    Still not right. Cyanogenmod is the ONLY gingerbread rom we have.

    I'm using CM7 for about 2 days now, on GSM (with 3G HSPA). Can you please elaborate what exactly doesn't work with GSM?

    Well, on the list of things that were still not working on cm7 was gsm, the camera and now it seems that in yesterdays version bluetooth doesnt work either. Is this right?

    List of current stuff broken...(C'mon, there's a bug thread over at rootzwiki actually)
    Camera is mirrored (you can unmirror it by flipping modes, does the trick)
    Battery drains a little quick, better than stock blur for most though (True with all 2nd init roms it seems)
    Bluetooth...it works but other caller can't hear you. Oh and I believe somewhere it was said our Bluetooth bug is the opposite of the D2's Bluetooth bug.

    Otherwise, nothing more is broken. Boot animation doesn't count. It's just slow, that's all.

    That depends on if you have a good D2G or not. GSM worked quite well during a Canada trip for me.

    It probably worked well if you were roaming with the verizon cdma network but it has been reported many times from a lot of canadians using local sim cards that the connectivity is really bad. Same problem happens in Southamerica. It is a gsm firmware issue and it will supposedly be fixed on the gingerbread update. My question was if this issue is fixed in the gingerbread used on cm7 or if in terms of gsm connectivity there were no improvements.
