List of All Gingerbread-Running Phones – Instantly Updated
Like previous Android releases, the Android developers are very busy porting the Android Gingerbread SDK to other phones. XDA is often the first place where these ROMs become available, and we’ve created a list containing all Gingerbread ROMs, sorted per device. We’ll be updating this article very frequently, so if you are looking forward to some gingerbread-goodness, you can check out this article to find out if it’s available for your device.
Please keep in mind that these ROMs are only for testing and playing purposes.
These are not meant for daily use – these are all SDK ports so basic functions won’t work properly.
These ROMs only boot, and they only show you the Gingerbread interface. Nothing more. You can’t do anything with it.
Credits to XDA member DarkStone1337, without his help, nothing of this would have been possible.

Google Nexus One
HTC Droid Eris
HTC Hero CDMA
HTC EVO 4G
Nexian Journey A890
More ROMs will be added when available. If a ROM is not included in the list, feel free to contact any news writer, preferably the author of this article.

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
