    Yeah I had a read through that thread and it sounds like pretty much all of it needs fixing. I guess I'll wait for an AOSP one.

    Nathan over at the VillainROM forums has said he's been working on a 2.2 port too. And it's in better shape than this one by the sound of it.

    They've hit a roadblock at the moment as they don't have a driver for 'legacy' hardware. Once something like 2.2 for the T-Mobile Mytouch 3G is in circulation they should have something to work with.

    The most significant addition is the JIT compiler, which will make apps run much faster.
