    i have to pull them off of my droid through ADB, i could give you a nandroid if youd like.... it would be faster

    EDIT: i know its late but heres my link, i just uploaded it: Gingerbread.zip

    How to install:


    1. boot into recovery
    2. wipe Data to factory settings
    3. flash the Ultimate droid gingerbread.zip
    4. reboot
    5. once back on, boot back into recovery (install clockwork recovery from the market and boot into recovery)
    6. flash gingerbread rebaked.zip (NO WIPE)
    7. boot
    8. ???

    From what I remember, this is how to get the camera working (I might be wrong...you might also want to ask in the other Gingerbread thread in "Android Roms"): You will have to copy the camera's lib files from Froyo over and into /system/lib, set permissions on them, and reboot. I THINK this was how the camera was fixed. I don't remember the names of each file, but if you look in an UD zip and go into /system/lib, the files all have the word "camera" in them. If this doesnt work, again ask in the other thread.

    Just a note, the video camera still isnt working though.

    Edit: Here are the details for anybody debugging the camera:

    When compiling the Gingerbread build, errors were being generated that dealt with the camera service. In order to successfully build Gingerbread, all code relating to this had to be commented out. The result is that the lib files corresponding to the camera service weren't getting compiled and included in the build.

    Now, this is just a hack to get it to work as we are still using the 2.2 library when it comes to the camera and not 2.3. In other words, if new code was written dealing with the camera you won't see it using this method. The camera will be the same as it was in 2.2.

    When you say restore the image do you mean install the backup file that was moved into the clockworkmod folder? Or are we just supposed to install a certain part of the file?

    I might be doing this wrong but when I tried flashing the "backup" file I got the message that the md5 sums don't match. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I did do that. I was in recovery mode, made a backup of my device and then returned to the nandroid folder and selected it (after it was unzipped and relocated) and I got the message that the md5 sums were different and it aborted the install.

    heres what you have to do:


    1. take the original .zip of the nandroid back up and place it in /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup
    2. boot into recovery
    3. click nandroid
    4. click "restore"
    5. choose the nandroid you just saved
    6. click "yes"
    7. wait
    8. reboot
    9. ???

    Awesome South Park reference, my hat is off to you. So in the original instructions it said to "unzip" the file and then place into the clockworkmod/backup folder. Should I not extract it?

    I do appreciate the help.
