Root Gingerbread roms

  1. Has anyone got a peek of what GB will look like? I'm confident our rom devs will make them, just curious if anyone has seen a glimpse yet. I know they will be great and probably coming soon. That's why I'm not getting to far set up on one Froyo rom,

    Google is keeping Gingerbread a SECRET. Very secret. We DO know that the UI will be completely overhauled. And it MIGHT hit sometime in November. The SDK release has been "imminent" for weeks. That's all I know, and pretty much all anyone knows.

    Expected Features:

    * Support for WebM video playback
    * Improved copy–paste functionalities
    * Improved social networking features
    * Android Market music store
    * Media streaming from PC library
    * Revamped UI
    * Support for bigger screens
    * New 3D Games support
    * Support for video calls
    * Support for WebP image files

    If anyone finds out anything new, make sure to post it here! :D

    EDIT: Here's some news:

  3. Nice find, Chief! I bet the really are keeping it a secret, and it makes sense too. If they're overhauling the entire UI, then I can totally see why it's under wraps.

    But is it seriously imminent? Are they really gunna release it in November? Because I haven't heard anything. (Just curious!)

    I heard Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) is supposed to have the Revamped UI, not Gingerbread. Gingerbread will be 2.3.

    Here's whats supposed to be the screen-off animation for GB↓
