Leaked Gingerbread Now Available for the DROID Charge

The Gingerbread (Android 2.3) build for the DROID Charge that was teased over the weekend is now available for rooted users to download.  We should point out that it does include its fair share of bugs though, like a dead mobile hotspot app and no HDMI functionality, but the biggest might be the fact that it can’t send or receive texts.

It’s definitely unofficial 2.3.3 and these bugs aren’t a surprise, so try to understand if you dive into it, that this is no where near what the final release will feel like.  You can use Netflix afterwards though!

You can find all of the files and instructions at MyDroidWorld.

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    the other artists.

    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    Careful with this leak.   When the phone goes to sleep, your phone won’t receive any incoming calls.  Only when it’s being charged, attached to the cradle/computer OR if the screen is on will the calls come thru.

    I’ve missed 4 calls this morning alone, so I’m flashing back to EE4.

    No thanks. I like the ability to send and receive texts. I dislike Froyo very much, however I’m not up for these bugs. 

  • TheCastleGuard

    I am so glad my fellow Droid X owners aren’t nearly as whiny and have the sense of entitlement that Samsung Owners seem too.  Enjoy waiting for the OTA update for 2.3.4 because I am sure you won’t be seeing any leaks I am sure.  BTW If it is such an expense to spend $2 on an app to get a leak early (2 whole days) then I doubt you should have smartphone.

    • Mneighbo

      I have an X also, and when we were waiting for GB, people were just as whiny and bitchy while waiting for the leak and/or the OTA update. I have the Charge too and I don’t think you can speak for all of us b/c I in no way feel a sense of entitlement over this. 

  • I together with my pals have been reading through the great secrets and techniques on your web blog and then all of the sudden I got an awful feeling I never thanked you for those tips. All of the women appeared to be consequently thrilled to read through all of them and have in effect extremely been taking advantage of them. Appreciation for being considerably considerate and then for finding this form of exceptional themes millions of individuals are really eager to discover. Our honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to you earlier.

    Wow benchmarks are now over the 980 in froyo its over 2000 now gingerbread is fast! That’s what I’m talking about

    • What?  I assume you’re talking Quadrant.  The best scores I got when I had the GB leak installed were little over 1000, while with Froyo but rooted with the Voodoo Lagfix file system conversion (e.g., stock rom, but that kernel), I’m getting around 1400 (yes, I’ve gone back to that–too many issues with it).

      Plus, was used to GB ala CM7 on my OG DROID, which is GB-plus.  This was GB-minus.  A simple, dumb thing that is a GB feature that it didn’t implement was the whole power on/power off old TV animation.  Why remove that?

      Maybe now that this has leaked, we’ll see some CM activity for it.  Or so I hope.

    2.3.3? Why not 2.3.4?  Isn’t that the version needed for video chat, etc?

    p3droid is a scumbag. asking someone to pay for a leak is pure greed

    • How is he charging for it? Is it not here…right now…for free? Quit being a troll.

      • Anonymous

        he was charging people for it…like 2 days..ago? quit being a fanboy and learn how to use ellipses.

        • IzzyD

          get your facts straight moron you are obviously clueless. He does NOT charge for leaked files. If he/TBH did we would have to pay for each and every file that TBH has released and the reality is we DON’T. The truth of the matter is if people choose to support TBH and want things early you buy the app for a whole $2 which is chump change. If you don’t want to support them fine then wait the measly 24-48 hrs and it will ALWAYS be public just like it was posted today alreayd for free (except for the idiots who did it yesterday over at RootWiki). Anywhoo don’t come across and spill INACCURATE information making them out to be the bad guy when you are wrong in the first place. Hell if it wasn’t for TBH we wouldn’t have half of the stuff we’ve had to get anywhere with the locked Moto devices, so get a grip already

          To further add what do you not think this stuff comes with no an expense to these guys. If you think it is givin away as a freebie/gift from there leads your are dead wrong. Everything this day and age has a cost as nothing is free. 

          • Anon

            Why do you call people idiots that posted it early? It was their choice to do so. You dont have to dl it if you dont like. The hypocrisy coming from you stinks.

          • IzzyD

            True, it was there choice to do it. However TBH and the app have been around for ages yet all of a sudden there is some yahoo who seems to think it is cool to step on someone elses toes. Come on now and get real if you think that is fair. Lets look at it this way, what if you were one of the those who does choose to support TBH and paid for the app. Is it fair to those people to have the leak posted online when they did there part in supporting TBH. No its not, but god forbid anyone think of someone else these days. Its all about this idea of ME and who cares about anyone else. And that is a sad state of our society this day and age IMO.   

            And hypocrisy how do you figure. I’m not the ass that stepped on toes, I’m talking facts.  It was plainly stated yesterday in P3’s tweet it will be posted publicly in 24-48hrs. All BS aside I guess what bothers me more then anything besides this is the BS info going around of this idea of people getting charge for a leak  by TBH which is completely inaccurate like I stated. Whether someone likes another person or not is irrelevant in my view. I don’t care and refuse to get involved. We all have our own choices to who to like or not to. But when folks LIE about the facts I will say what needs to be said so it is clarified. 

            FYI I didn’t download from RW. I choose to never install a leak on the first day. I’d much rather sit back and get some feedback on the build before flashing a device I own.    

          • Anon

            They did charge for the leaked files because you could not get those files for free. Yes, they now have released everything for free but there was a period when you had to pay to get them. Seeing as how the leak included “stolen” files from a company AND a kernel developed by another dev, many thought it was unethical to release this as a paid app. There is nothing wrong with those people releasing the same files for free. If you want to support TBH, donate or buy the paid app. If you don’t, then don’t. It’s up to the user to choose.

            To claim it’s right to release a stolen software and another devs work under a paid app, but not right for another person to release the files for free is hypocritical.

  • Mctypething

    Do people really put this stuff on their phones? It causes your phone to not send or receive texts? Really? Sign me up.

  • gregba

    I for one really like how TouchWiz 4.0 looks, so if the charge can get upgraded to that, I might break down and get that….im getting sick of waiting for GS2

    • Coriolis

      Its what I did. I have no regrets 😀

  • Installed it earlier today. Lack of HDMI isn’t an issue for me, but now that netflix works I may have to buy a cable. I installed the rooted version so hotspot isn’t an issue, just use wireless tether like everyone will have to when they get rid of the free hotspot anyways. Wasn’t aware of the texts being broken so I sent out a few and have confirmed that texting (and MMS) DOES work.

    • Robin


      • You are gonna want to read up on rooting. 

    • Cynicisimsfun

      If you do want to buy an HDMI cable that works and isn’t ridiculously overpriced by Verizon, check out this thread on xda:
      I bought one and can say that it works completely!

  • no Texts for you!

  • Rick

    Read over at XDA forum, if you set the phone date to sometime in May and Hotspot works. Then some of those users downloaded elixer.

  • Does it get rid of the ugly brown and yellow notification area? Not that I have a Charge but noticed this when i played with it in the store.
