Gingerbread Source Code Released, Headed to AOSP Now

Get ready for our lovely ROM developer community to spend their entire weekend hacking away at Gingerbread (Android 2.3) source code.  Googler extraordinaire Jean-Baptiste Queru is pushing it to AOSP (Android Open Source Project) now and should have it ready for all the fun in a couple of hours.

More info can be found here.

  • Can you see any other phone company doing this? “Hey hackers, here's are OS, go mess with it!”

  • Still waiting on the announcement of Android Insulin…

  • Rob

    A little off topic lost root with update on droid 1 is there a way to root it? Missing the root.

    When are we going to see some D2G roms I'm so sick of this white not. Bar?

    • As soon as you figure out how to unlock the bootloader.

  • Muddy B00ts

    I can't wait for Android 7.0 Tiramisu with holographic video calling and built in time machine. (don't forget the crystals)

    • Tergiversator_Maximus

      Just as long as you don't have to put it in your crotch to use it.

        Some of us might actually enjoy that…

    Soon, CM gingerbready goodness! This is exciting.

    I seem to recall a rumor that Gingerbread required too much processor speed for D1. Has this been confirmed/disproved?

    • The LG Optimus Series is getting Gingerbread and they have 600 mhz processors. The D1 will handle it just fine.

    I assume there will be another post when the first Gingerbread ROM is created from this, yes?

  • Drew_VA

    It's a Festivus miracle! Time for some Gingerbread ROM action!!!

    • Muddy B00ts

      hah! +1 for the Seinfeld reference. I don't which part is funnier, the airing of grievances or the feats of strength.

  • Apex!!>?!

  • FortitudineVincimus

    go Pete GO!!!

  • Eric

    mmm…. Gingerbread just in time for X-mas!!!

  • FrenchToast

    Mah Droid needs some Gingerbread lovin for Christmas!!! 😀

  • Ethiopia

    So hungry for some Incredible Gingerbread….


    • Acalvillo5


      p.s. I want a droid life auto graphed phone for christmas :p

      • Send me fones! 😛

        • Acalvillo5

          Darn I was hoping droid-life would continue the love giving with a donated nexus s unlocked for verizon! Complete with autographs of course!

          One can only dream…

  • So when will the Nexus One stepchild going to get the update?

  • haha yes now that there's gingerbread, time for honeycomb 😀

  • akazerotime

    I bet Pete will have this update.zip ready for the OG in a week.

  • So does this mean we have to stop talking about Gingerbread and start expressing our desire for Honeycomb?

      Honeycomb lust is so Q1 2011. It’s all about the Ice Cream, with features like:
      -Radar Suppressor
      -Augmented Reality Compatibility with Glasses
      -Ability to shut down all iphones with a single touch (wait, Apple already did that)
      -Multitouch projector support
      -Bacon Cooker

        Of all things I like “Bacon Cooker” has to be the best.

    • kellex

      Hah, thanks for feeding the wolves. 😛

      • Rob

        Is there a way to root droid 1?

        • Tergiversator_Maximus

          Was that a joke?

          • Rob

            Not a joke just asking z4 root doesn’t work with new update on droid 1.

          • Tergiversator_Maximus

            Ah, cool. I thought you were asking if there was ever any way to root the D1. I haven’t rooted yet, but the forum seems pretty helpful.

            I just got a replacement Droid and it came with FRG83D 2.2.1 and was thinking about rooting my phone as well. There seems to be a good walkthrough here. I’m about to run through it in a couple of hours. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html

          • Jesse

            It worked!!! I swear I could kiss MotoCache1 in the mouth right now. MIUI here I come.

  • Evangelistlf

    First 🙂

      NO YOU WERE NOT!!!
