Android 2.3.7 Hits The Streets!
Well, it seems that the people/team behind Gingerbread really do not want to see this fantastic version of Android to be left behind and forgotten. Because of this, they decided to start rolling out what is likely to be one of the last updates to Gingerbread, Android 2.3.7. Several devices received OTAs being pushed in about a week and a half ago. Needless to say, between that time and now, roms of all sizes and colors have surfaced for a ton of devices across the site thanks to people like XDA member qbking77 who decided to pull out the update out of a friend’s device . Among them, we can see roms and updates to the new OS on the Nexus S, Nexus One, SGS2, and a few others.
There are already roms out from famous groups such as ACS and Cyanogen. So, if you are itching to have the latest of the latest before ICS hits the streets (either as a leak, via eBay, or as an official update), you should do a quick search on your device forum and see what you can find.

But it'll be a long time...
