    My $ is on Cyanogen, of course. I'd expect to see a CM Gingerbread ROM for the N1 within a week. Maybe the 1st Droid ROM within a couple weeks?

    My guess will be that Pete will release a vanilla rooted version (both deodexed and odexed) first before anyone gets a flown blown themed ROM going.

    I suspect that we'll see it show up in the CyanogenMod nightlies prior to any official release (6.2?). I don't think 2.3 is on AOSP yet either. I'll gladly wait for a Cyanogen release before grabbing a quick plain release from someone else - I'd be giving up too much by going back to a plain ROM even if it's 2.3.

    Pete has been slower than sap in winter lately. His usually routine Bugless Beats roms are now 3-4 months apart. I wouldn't expect him to keep up with these anymore.

    Cyanogen is probably the best bet.

    Pete is too busy with the X or Galaxy S (or whatever it was that he got) thats why hes been slower with the D1 releases. my guess is its gonna be a month or better before we see a release for our Droids. got to wait for source to be released first..... then wait for some one to port it over,.....

    yes, he has been slow BUT he does (has done I should say) his vanilla rooted only roms much faster than say a full blown BB themed tricked out rom. and for me, I like his stock rooted roms anyway.

    Dose it really matter who does it first? Just as long as we get it.

    Just an FYI.... Pete's 2.3 keyboard does not include the dictionary, so autocorrect doesn't work on it yet.

    yep, that's all pretty clear in that thread.

    I was just pointing out that for a dev that has kind of lagged lately, that was a quick deploy and hope it insinuates he is messing with the entire 2.3 ROM to root it and post it as he has in the past.

    it is kind of odd he just keyed in on that (no pun intended) and released that.

    I dunno, CyanogenMod wasn't that quick on Froyo. Now I'm glad for that, though, it gave me some more time with Eclair before I switched to the horror of Froyo and its constant redraws and overall lagginess compared to Eclair. I'm hoping he'll be quick on Gingerbread and Koush will port it over, but I'm counting on Pete's stock release first. Which is fine, I'm dying to get off Froyo. Hopefully Gingerbread will have better memory optimization.

    gingerbread ROM won't be released until the source is released (in all likeliness). the SDK was released today, not the source.

    The 2.3 keyboard is supposed to have built-in multi-touch.

    I tried Fabolous' Gingerbread keyboard and had FCs out the butt. Had to do a nandroid restore. Suppose I'll wait for BlackDroid to release it as part of his next ROM :)

    Let's not go there. I believe the FC's are coming because some ROMs have the keyboard named differently, i.e.

    LatinIMEGoogle.apk as opposed to LatinIME.apk, which is what this one is named. Then, there's two keyboards, but the one library file is the 2.3 one, which causes the old (2.2) keyboard to FC.

    So, you'll just need to use root explorer or adb to rename/delete the original keyboard to flash the new one.
