Gingerbread Ported to Galaxy S I9000
For all of you Galaxy S owners, you have an early holiday gift coming you way, thanks to XDA member supercurio. The dev has now ported the Nexus S kernel to the I9000 to make a booting Gingerbread ROM. Here are some details from the OP:
Which filesystem ?
This early preview runs on Ext4. no RFS at all, the kernel don’t support RFS.
Does everything work ?
Nope, but I must admit I didn’t expect such a result.
Don’t work: GPS / Voice / Wifi / some Buttons / camera
Work: everything else: like sound, GL acceleration etc
Will it work ?
I think most of it will work after countless hours spent on it.
Is it flashable with Odin ?
That’s a good idea <Gregounech>, i think i’ll do that tomorrow.
So, if you want to, go try it out for yourself but do so at your own risk. You can find more information in the discussion thread. If you wish to see videos of it made by supercurio, look here and here.

One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
