    Despite the attempts by mods to keep the discussion simplified, I'm still a little foggy on this rooted gingerbread thing. But I liked how easy rooting was the first time with unrevoked. Any chance I can dp something that simple soon?

    Also, is there a stock, no sense version of 2.3 to put on the phone?

    Lastly, I thought it's 3.0? Do we have a stripped version of gingerbread or did I miss something?

    Are you currently rooted? Stock 2.3 comes with sense. If you want something without sense you will need to flash an AOSP rom that is based on 2.3. There are many out and most have everything working.

    We have to wait for a new root exploit to hit before anyone who accepted the OTA can root....No worries though, I'm sure the Dev's over there at Unrevoked are working on it.

    Check out Deck's GB AOSP ROM or OMGB, they're pretty much pure GB and not Sense.

    One thing I love about this forum is the civility... thanks, all. Very helpful.

    I'm already rooted, and turned off updates, so I guess I just need to read up on odex/deodex and get it done.

    I was under the impression that Android 3.0 was Honeycomb. Was I mistaken?

    i think that people are getting confused with sense 3.0 and honeycomb 3.0 two different things. the latest gingerbread ota still has sense 2.1.

    Ah, yes, these numbers can create confusion.

    Also, I remember reading somewhere that the Evo 4G won't get Sense 3.0 due to hardware limitations.

    yeah, but virusrom was able to get sense 3.0 and looks like a stable version is coming soon. it is a pretty big rom in size though.

    +1 on these forums being civil...always a helpful place to come when you have a question. As far as the odex versus deodex, you can find plenty of reading material online. To keep it simple though, odex is typically faster but you can not theme it. Deodex is not as fast as odex but can be themed/modified. Good luck with your flashing! :)
