    Does anyone know if this is an update just for Nexus or will all Androids eventually receive it? Also, what wil be different about this update?

    Just wondering what all the hoopla is about.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes we will be eventually getting gingerbread but it could take a while. From what I understand there will be some ui changes but that's about all I really know.

    There are rumors that Gingerbread will be out as soon as November 19th, but other than the UI enhancements we've seen there hasn't been much else leaked. I'm guessing another jump in performance and hopefully we'll actually be able to use proxy servers in this version.

    Kernel or bootloader? Because I'm betting on yet ANOTHER attempt to plug the root hole.

    Oh, no doubt. Any update plugs whatever hole they can find to fill. Which just means that the old saw is true -- if you're going to root, root now! There's no guarantee it'll be possible in two weeks. :)

    But that's a bit off-topic. Any rumor we've heard is just that -- a rumor. This, however, is not.

    Nexus One to get Gingerbread OS? ? The Register

    That's all we really know... :D That and if Gingerbread is possible on the D1 (and there's tacit implication that it is possible, and I mean stock, because we know ROMs will have it within a month of the source hitting if not sooner) it will hit for the D2 soon. Just need to get Blur on it.

    So, I saw a thing on Android Central this morning that apparently the Nexus One is supposed to get the 2.3 update first...
    I got mine this morning on my new Droid 2, and it appears that I'm not the only one... I've seen a few people on this forum that have it already.
    And the "easy root" method in the sticky in the D2 forums here works perfectly for it :)

    You have been around for a while so you should know that you did not get Android 2.3. 2.3 is not available for a while. You just got the 2.3.2 update.

    Ahh, you are correct. I just got the D2 and haven't had a chance to really learn about it yet. I thought it was kinda weird seeing all those things, especially since I didn't notice much of a difference with the OS itself :)
    Way to go Moto for making things even more confusing!

    I thought it was the 2.3 Android update as well. I was waiting to add a custom rom until they updated to 2.3, guess i don't need to wait now.
