    Gingerbread

    Just got the new update for my Droid X. Web browsing seems a lot faster and the whole interface looks pretty slick.

    Does anyone have a full list of new features for this update?

    Re: Gingerbread

    I also got mine this morning on the DroidX. Seems to run a little smoother but I'm not noticing any huge changes. Part of this may be because I use a different launcher.

    Would be nice if Google could get all of the various providers and manufacturers on the same page concerning OS updates. My wife's phone is still stuck on 2.1, with no update in sight. (It is an LG Axis through Cox).

    Re: Gingerbread

    I'm patiently (well.. sort of) waiting for the developers over at XDA to fix up a new version of CyanogenMod 7 for my Fascinate, so that all the hardware and video codecs will work. Then I'll have Gingerbread AOSP (Android Open Source Project) goodness!

    Re: Gingerbread

    Got mine last night...did a manual update. You used to be able to link your contacts from Facebook...I'm not able to do that anymore. Right now about 10 of my contacts have pictures, the others just have their faces and their "old" nicknames I used to have them in my phone as instead of what they are listed on facebook as. Any thoughts?

    Thats what i'll be doing for my incredible when its gingerbread comes out (leaked builds already out, and evo's came today, so incredible wont be far behind).. someone will have a rooted rom based on the official stock one out within hours id bet.

    I'm just at stock root right now.. i like Sense but couldnt stand all the autorunning crapware apps that were killing my battery. I think my battery life doubled after i rooted and removed all that junk.

    I still havent settled on a different ROM, so I always go back to the rooted stock. Hopefully they get one for the Dinc2. I couldnt believe all of the excess crap they added to the 2. Its ugly.

    Yeah... luckily HTC has said that going forward they wont be locking their bootloaders, so rooting will be less of a challenge.

    Sounds like it's bricking some Droid X's.
