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.

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 .
