Android 2.3 Gingerbread Being Pushed to AOSP Right Now


According to a post by Google’s Jean-Baptiste M. “JBQ” Queru, a

Software Engineer on the Android Open-Source Project (AOSP), Android 2.3, codenamed Gingerbread, is being pushed to the AOSP even as we speak.

Developers are being asked to be “patient” and wait for a few hours (or even a few days) before downloading the code to balance server loads.

With the Nexus S (which comes with Gingerbread pre-loaded) having been released just yesterday, it’s surprising that the AOSP would be seeing it this early. I’m not complaining, just a bit surprised.

This means as soon as the repository has been updated, developers like Cyanogen and crew can start building custom ROMs based on the official Gingerbread sourcecode.

Team this up with the releases of various device’s kernels into the opensource community that we’ve been reporting and we should start seeing Gingerbread come to phones that people like you and I already own.

Stay tuned to, we’ll let you know when the first ROMs build from the Gingerbread source are released.
