    Gingerbread...denied!!

    I picked up my phone (Nexus One) this morning to find that there was a system update ready to install, and according to the message on it, it was 'part one of two'. And that 'this must be installed first to allow the installation of the second update'.
    'W00t' I thought, expecting the first to be a preperation for the second update which was to be Gingerbread, but no. After the first installed and rebooted the second downloaded only to be some bug fixes and security patches
    C'mon. I want Gingerbread!!!

    EDIT: and I'll probably do the same with Gingerbread, if/when it gets released for Desire

    You get all the froyo features, plus more and speed and stability improvements - but no HTC Sense

    they do a wildfire build: HTC Wildfire - CyanogenMod Forum

    Personally I've found it great, the root took a bit of fiddling, but the firmware flash was easy check here Universal Androot Roots Most Android Phones, No PC or Hacking Required and here How to Choose the Right Android ROM for You

    the RomManger - available in the market makes backups, updates and changes really easy

    I've found such conflicting info on t'net.

    It was a SIM free but i've got my Vodafone Contract SIM in there.
