    Because Motorola won't release the Gingerbread sources for their phones for a while, kexec won't be Gingerbread ready for a few weeks after release. Hopefully, the kernels will be full compatible, but I honestly doubt that would happen.

    Summary: If you want to use or test kexec stay on froyo until we have a code drop.

    Sorry I haven't been paying close attention to the progress of the kexec, did all of the drivers finally get uncovered?

    Will the release help with the drivers at all?

    Doubt it, but we can be hopeful about it.

    I guess the hardware (radios and such) aren't changing, so the drivers should remain relatively the same?

    Did you look for the Droid1 BT drivers? I thought they were the same? Just a thought.

    Bluetooth is in the Wifi drivers. There could also be changes to the baseband which would be reflected with changes in the drivers.
