    Brand new, haven't even had the Ally for 2 hours yet. Upgrading from a palm Pixi Plus.

    I found this to see if the Ally had gingerbread. Being I haven't seen it anywhere else like here (seems to have the biggest community) I have my doubts.

    EDIT: Link pulled due to its worthlessness.


    What are the risk trying this? Can I brick my new toy or try it because there's always a recovery option?

    If this is garbage, I'll pull the link next time I'm on so no one gets bit.

    Hmm I haven't heard of this before. I'm leaning towards too good to be true if none of our awesome ROM developers here have said they are working on anything Gingerbread-wise for us, but I suppose anything is possible. I certainly won't be the first one to try installing it. :p

    Now i'm no developer (publicly anyways) butttt the following lines are in the build.prop

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. # begin build properties
    3. # autogenerated by buildinfo.sh
    4. ro.build.id=HONEYCOMB
    5. ro.build.display.id=sdk-eng 3.0 HONEYCOMB 104254 test-keys
    6. ro.build.version.sdk=11
    7. ro.build.version.codename=REL
    8. ro.build.version.release=3.0
    9. ro.build.date=Wed Feb 16 19:26:18 PST 2011
    10. ro.product.model=Nexus S
    11. ro.product.brand=google
    12. ro.product.manufacturer=Samsung
    13. ro.build.description=sdk-eng 3.0 HONEYCOMB 104254 test-keys
    14. ro.build.fingerprint=generic/sdk/generic:3.0/HONEYCOMB/104254:eng/test-keys
    15.  
    16. # Honeycomb SDK for Nexus S
    17. ro.sf.widthpixels=480
    18. ro.sf.heightpixels=800
    19. ro.sf.lcd_density.xdpi=254
    20. ro.sf.lcd_density.ydpi=254
    21. ro.sf.lcd_density = 120
    22.  
    Theres even a section that says "#system.prop for generic sdk"

    Seem's like an Honeycomb SDK port for the Nexus S
    That alone leads me to believe its fake, but i'll wait for others to chime in

    Oh, its android 3.0, from a nexus S, says the build.prop, will leave your phone unbootable, and bricked if you do other dumb stuff too.
