    Now I for one have a droid x and I have rooted GB 602, So I know how much better (IMO) 2.3 is over 2.2 froyo on my phone. I have a brother who is not as fluent in trying "leaks" as he is waiting for the ota to come out. Is there any reason with this build that he should wait, honestly for the upgrade to come out. Obviously this one was either rejected or isn't complete yet. Granted, I see the D2 information went live on verizon's site that their upgrade is imminent. I'm simply starting a D2G Gingerbread Problem thread.

    The only issue I've come across is that I can't do remote installs of apps (installing them from the market on your PC). Other than that I haven't come across any major issues.

    ive remotely installed apps on the leak...

    the only bug i have found is that the backlight occasionally doesnt come on, or it comes on at seemingly random times.

    Only problem is with Blue Tooth. It comes on but will not pair with any device.

    After running for a few days, my battery life has become stellar, I think they fixed the throttling.

    My biggest beef is the STUPID 3G symbol that shifts a pixel back and forth while active. It just looks sloppy.

    There's a fix for it in the form of an update zip file for CWM.

    When trying to install it it all of a sudden stops and gives me a long error message. Below it it says status 7. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I moved the update.zip to the sd card not in any folder is that what the problem is?

    I haven't noticed any huge problems to warrant a problems thread. I did put the GB ROM through its paces the last couple of days and the only thing I noticed was the huge battery drain but now it seemed to have stabilized a bit. My blue tooth works fine and so does wifi tethering

    Normally my music doesn't stop out of the blue but for some reason, it's begun to do that with rooted 2.3. Global unplug seems to be the culprit here. Unrooted was perfect though. I'll probably also try to find a fix for 10% battery increments later too. Hopefully, adb pushing a system app doesn't bootloop.

    Problems with Gengerbread

    The only problems I have is no Wi-Fi and the program Wireless Tether is not working. I think I'll wait until their fixed before flashing it again. Other than that it runs NICE.

    One problem I am having is that I can not add new contacts, it just closes back out to the home screen when I try.

    Sometimes while typing inside a text-field in the native browser, instead of printing a letter, the 'L' and 'P' keys on the physical keyboard will open up my Calendar and Music apps, respectively. I've also had just one random reboot in the 3+ days with the TBH rooted leak.

    Honestly though, I'm ecstatic with the night-&-day difference between Froyo and GB!! (But does anyone else feel like the updated interface/launcher/color-scheme sorta looks like crap??)

    That would be due to keyboard shortcuts; which can be disabled.

    For me, bluetooth is much improved over froyo. Wifi occasionally has to be restarted.

    Try setting Google Contacts as your default contact storage.

    I cannot access this setting. It closes back out to the home screen when I try as well.
