    Default Vanilla Android 2.3.2 (from Peter Alfonso)

    Pete (of BuglessBeast fame) put this ROM on his website today.



    this is the first "clean" copy of 2.3 i have seen on the droid, and it is working flawlessly (as usual with his ROMs) on my device.

    Wow this sounds incredible. How's the memory usage? From the Cyanogen forums, a lot of people were complaining that Gingerbread is a memory hog to the point of closing applications such as the music player and closing widgets. Have you noticed any insane memory problems?

    I am running with 38 mb of free RAM right now with no FC's. It obviously uses more memory than FroYo but the speed is incredible and I haven't run into any problems.

    And I am not gonna lie, I am kinda disappointed that I beat the AC homepage to this news and still didn't get a shoutout in the article. They even used my words almost exactly.

    I agree, I've been running it for a day and it's amazing! Only thing that's a little annoying (and this is not Pete's fault, just the Droid's RAM) is that I get more screen redraws than usual. But the home screen loads up pretty fast, even after a reload, so I'll stick with it.

    I'll be the voice of dissent. I wasn't that impressed. My phone was definitely faster with Project Elite. I also didn't really care for the look of Gingerbread (I like a white notification bar). I've reverted back to Project Elite for now. I'll give Gingerbread another shot when Cyanogen 7 is done.

    I'm kind of disappointed that you would accuse me of plagiarism.

    That post was written well before it was published, and there was no intentional oversight. We try to source our own forums anytime we can.

    I'm loving GPA10... For the most part, I fixed the redraw issues by replacing my Slayher Kernel with the Liquid Gingerbread one, and also by uninstalling Launcher2. It's running great!

    So after a full day of use, been about 9hrs off the charger, and my battery is only down about 1/8th!! Its like a whole new phone. Really loving my droid 1. Only on big issue is its a tad slow coming out of stand by. But I can deal with that.

    *edit* okay i was going by the battery icon. when i checked in preferences/status it said down to 60%... which is still great performance from the stock battery, considering i have yet to make it more than 6 hours without having to charge it to make it through the rest of my day at work.

    so the issues i have so far are:
    Slow to wake up from stand by
    Battery icon seems a bit off (which i dont care really, i'm sure "theres an app for that" to show %)
    only app problem i've seen so far was GO SMS, it kept accumulating message count/notice in my status bar. uninstalled it and went to Handscent SMS and its playing nicely now.. I'll give GO SMS another shot after a couple more releases.. i prefer it over handscent.

    cheers

    hey, no biggie. i am not accusing you or anyone else of plagiarism, just wanted to see my name on my homepage for my own egomaniacle reasons, lol.

    of course AC has beaten me to thousands of leaks/tips, i was just surprised to post some news before the homepage for once.

    Love it. It is a little slower on the quadrant score than BB 6.1 but I think I will stick with it for a while.

    This is the link for the Kernels, straight from the Liquid Gingerbread Forum at DroidForums:

    I downloaded the RZK 1100 one, seems to work beautifully with Pete's Gingerbread.

    i love this rom, tv off works great !

    i have found a couple bugs but nothing to serious , sometime i have trouble connecting to the 3g network when trying to use the browser,market, news and weather, or facebook especially when i go into those apps from the widget.

    im also having trouble setting ringtones and notifications, sometimes it plays the ringtone i set and other times it picks one at random, same with notifications.

    i had the dialer force close multiple times this morning when i tried to switch from a call to a call waiting. screwing up both phone calls and frustrating the hell out of my girlfriend lol

    also have invisible lock tabs sometimes and a werid grey block around the time

    but all together for a first release this rom is pretty good cant wait for updates

    Exactly, with Gingerbread you just have to wait a few seconds after the phone call until it comes back. It's no big deal.
