    Last night i had rooted and installed Gingerbread 2.3.2 on my phone. It runs better than before (auto brightness is a little off), has all the features of gingerbread which is awesome. I just couldnt believe that a phone that has been outdated for about a year, and was told that it couldnt even handle froyo (which is one of the reasons they didnt give it froyo or gingerbread) could run gingerbread better than it ran 2.1 but this is only going to hold me over till the Bionic comes out. what are your thoughts?

    It runs great for me. Music sometimes has random little pauses in it, but that might have more to do with Ginger Tazz than anything. Otherwise, it runs just as good as 2.2 ever did, and in some ways, better.

    Before you can install Gingerbread, you must be rooted. Is your phone rooted?

    My favorite is Condemned ... an excellent Gingerbread build based on Cyanogenmod. There's a thread discussing it in the "All things Root" subforum for the Eris here.

    (And yep, your phone does need to be rooted.)

    Read these threads to decide which ROM you want to try. Download links should be available somewhere in the threads. Then follow the installation instructions for whichever ROM you pick. Just make sure you flash the gapps package after you flash the ROM and after any updates you flash.

    So i have rooted and downloaded the gingerbread 2.3.2 and have installed it. When the phone boots it gets to the android screen and will not go any further, what do i need to do to fix?

    Which ROM did you download? 2.3.2 is quite old. All of the current ROMs are up to 2.3.7, or at least 2.3.5.

    You didn't download KaosGingerbread, did you?

    If so, I recommend trying CondemnedSoul's CM7. You can download it from here: [ROM] 10/22/11 Condemned CM 7.1 V20 (2.3.7) Splashed with ICS - xda-developers

    If you don't like that one, then try GSB: [ROM][10/15/2011] GSB v4.1 | CM7.1.0 [2.3.7 GingerBread] - xda-developers

    However, read that first post carefully. With GSB, you must also download a separate Google apps .zip file and flash it right after flashing GSB, before you restart the phone. So, steps would be:

    - restart phone in Recovery
    - wipe data/factory reset
    - wipe Dalvik cache
    - flash GSB
    - (only for GSB): flash Google apps
    - restart the phone.

    For GSB, you need to download a zip file of google apps. They are included in CondemnedSoul's CM7, but not in GSB. Here is the link: http://www.mos95b.com/WorkShed/gapps/gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip (it's on the first post of the GSB thread I listed above, under "Google Apps (gapps)" - just below where you choose the ODEX or non-ODEXed version.)

    I always install the ODEXed version. You only need non-ODEX if you intend to vastly alter the look of the interface - aka as "theming".
