    Gonna leave this up to you.
    We are working hard to make 2.0 great . Its still a ways off but we need to start planning on the future after 2.0 .
    So we are gonna leave it up to you. here are the options
    1) forget gingerbread and continue to make a great froyo based rom.
    2) after 2.0 move to Gingerbread keep in mind if we do this it will be probably 2 months before youll see a release.
    3)wait until you see 2.0 and decide weather we continue with froyo and add featues or start over with gingerbread.

    hate to say it but not sure these older devices will handle GB as well as they do froyo.
    if we see people have successfully run GB (and this does not mean works great except for.......) then reexamine this.

    go to gingerbread, i like the copy/paste features that gingerbread offers plus i don't know that you guys could improve upon froyo much more than you already have.

    I'll admit that I don't know all the differences between froyo and GB, but I say stick with what you can make more stable. And right now that appears to be froyo. You guys have done an amazing job making this ROM both very stable and very fast. I'd hate to see those two important characteristics suffer for the sake of incorporating GB ...

    That being said, if GB is successfully built on D1 I say go for it. But let the other guys figure it all out :tongue: I'd rather you guys spend your valuable time continuing to fine tune and tweak the froyo version of Sourcery :biggrin:

    I'm with Yank on this. If GB ever gets a good build on the Droid then go for it. I'm happy with froyo. If GB can be made better than froyo then we'll see again.

    Going to have to day go with gingerbread after 2.0. Gingerbread had some good features and will likely become the norm in roms soon anyways. And the whole goal is to push yourself and do more with your development skills. Just my 2 cents.

    I say stick with stability through 2.0 as this is sweet saucery you are involved in.
    Unless gb runs full, clean and clear on OG, but not before.
    Cut n paste, there's apps for that sheezee.
    Only thing GB has to offer that seems amazing is the NFC.
    Read about it using this thing called wikipedia or sumthin, now that sounds awesome.
    Though some may still prefer the AFC.

    by the way is Yankinthasouth a euphemism for yankee the wankee

    Actually it was just me, unless you meant the royal we, like my hero The Dude oft uses.
    Which reminds me, I want to build a team of the best of the best from each coding/modding/development arena and make a The Dude ROM.
    Fully themed with preset animations, clips and soundboard.
    Not for the easily offended as there would be a lot of audio clips and all pretty much offensive.
    Perhaps it would be used as an evening ROM for off work hours.
    The ROMs motto, The Dude Abides.

    I digress.
    NFC is something I don't fully understand, but then again is it that surprising as I want to become Hannibal in a Big Lebowski A-Team.
    Stands for near frequency communication I think. And from what I read....OK what I had read to me sounded pretty cool.
    Google it along with gingerbread to read about it.

    Seriously though copy and paste is not a reason to do anything in life as far as being the motivator to go with this ROM in one direction.

    I had to walk up hill both ways in 10 degree snowstorms everyday of my life for public school in Michigan, yes it snows in the Spring here....jealous?
    So copy and paste doesn't really get me off. I mean we used to have to get off of our asses to change between the five channels on television. And send smoke signals to communicate with our fellow man.
    A better copy and paste method, either felates the user, otherwise it ain't all that better.

    Regardless you guys are doing great things with this ROM and I mean great, so I trust your gut instincts magicman and sourcerer.
    Keep up with the sweet sweet saucery

    My two cent worth of thinking, and here it goes:

    I believe and which most of us will agree that you guys do an incredible job in coming up things never seen before in any ROM. You two 'The Magicman' and 'The Sourcerer' are an incredible team and should stay with what you do best, coming up with something special in what we already have, "IMPROVEMENTS"....

    I believe you two can bring tremendous improvements in what we have ever seen in the ROMs. Although I voted to say that "I will wait until 2.0 to say anything" but I think at that time also I will still say that you should stay on Froyo.

    So the bottomline is "STAY WITH FROYO" do not get into the Ginger mania, Ginger is itself so asymmetric and distorted anyways so getting into it might create problems with the ROM which no one will appreciate, I included....

    I totally agree with dmcleo, I do not believe that our OG Droids are built to handle GB. Many have tried and failed at successfully running the GB on the device. But again you two Sourcerer and magicians are an incredible team so you can probably do some 'magic' and get it to work.. but like i voted, I will say wait until 2.0 and based on the public opinion at that time move further!!

    I will be there to test things for you (act as a guinea pig to test your modifications or a new ROM) if you need me!! So decide and do some MAGIC FOR US!!!!

    Oh Neilrl, Neirl, Neirl, these guys have magic in their hands and thinking, they can bring wonder to Froyo. Do not question their capabilities.... Wait and watch their magic when the next release comes out... I believe everyone will be astonished by their capabilities once 2.0 is out...

    I talked to them on IRC a few days back and the way everything went was amazing and I truly believe that this duo will get us something we never imagined...

    sorry droid 1 only.

    Sorry we wil continue with the droid 1 only . The goal of this project was to have people glad they still had the droid 1 over the other alternatives and to insure we spend the time on the droid 1 that othes arent due to the support for multiple phones.

    And i have no idea how to do stuff with locked bootloaders :) im sure i could learn but dont want to :)

    First off I have loved the rom and updates. By far the smoothest and most options of any roms. I'm sure there is more you can do with froyo but my simple mind can't imagine any of that.

    But since your soliciting ideas.... I think you guys should test out your skills and make the best GB rom available. If GB proves not to be stable then switch back to Froyo....but I'm pretty sure you'll have success with GB, plus more people that haven't tried Sourcery will give it a try if there is a solid GB Rom....

    Either way I'll be waiting!
