Gingerbread for Droid Eris Close to Fully Functional
XDA Member punk.kaos has been pushing out updates for his version of Gingerbread for the Droid Eris and as of Version 6 it is very stable and usable now. Some users are saying its as fast as Froyo on the Eris and that is is a daily ROM or one they could use as a main ROM. The ROM now has the following features working:
- Working OpenGL
- In-call microphone
- Notification Lights

Kaos has been working hard to fix every bug that pops up, so if you find any do not report them as he knows what is broken. We hope you enjoy this ROM and give a huge thanks to Kaos for all his hard work on this! Check out the discussion thread for more information.
