Holidays Update: AOSP Gingerbread Ported to Other Phones: Here’s Our Frequently Updated List
With the Nexus S system being dumped and the AOSP being pushed, Gingerbread development has officially started now. Developers now have enough resources to start developing Gingerbread for other Android phones too. XDA member supercurio immediately reaped the fruits of it and released the first custom Gingerbread ROM – for the Galaxy S.
This might confuse you as we have already written about several Gingerbread ports for various devices. However, as we stated in those articles, those were just SDK ports, and far from stable. This ROM however comes directly from the AOSP site and delivers almost every function you need. In order to keep you updated about other phones to receive the port, we will update this thread very frequently. It would really help us if you could notify us – preferably the author of this article – if a ROM is not included in the list.
Use with caution. Some ROMs will be pretty unstable so that’s something to keep in mind.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year. Not too long ago we featured a...
HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
