    There is a Gingerbread Rom over on XDA Developers. I loaded it up last night and its pretty nice. So far only the rear facing camera does not work right, does not save pictures and the stock weather app does not gather the location. third party weather works fine.

    For rooted users, that GB rom is causing some permanent bricking of phones right now, FYI. Secondly, when the GB OTA officially comes to HTC TB users, I'm wondering if it will also have the tethering sniffers like GB for the DX did. Guys over there are getting forwarded to the VZW tethering pay site when they run Wireless Tether. This is another reason why I'm glad I'm rooted.

    Today I called Verizon's tech support due to slow 4g. Thy corrected that by just having me remove the battery for 1 minute.. but he mentioned to me if I got the update for something called gingerbread ... he claimed it bricked phones, and he claimed Verizon stopped the updates.. he claimed he personally had 10 calls where they had to ship out replacement thunderbolts..

    I would say that you got someone who is full of it.
    Either they didn't know what they were talking about, or they were just plain stupid.

    I agree. He's a moron.

    I've been running GB for a while now without any issues. Virus has a kick ass beta for it on XDA.

    So what's the big deal with GB? What does it update and why is it better?

    Look up sense 3.0 elements. New lock screen, smooth as butter functionality, instant Gps lock....list keep going.

    Its just the latest version of android. You can think of it like when your favorite video game gets a pretty cool update.
