Gingerbread Final (Test release / RC)
Getting the files
1) Download update.zip from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/71594697/GB%20RC1/update.zip
2) Place on sdcard root keep name as update.zip
3) Download google apps from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/71594697/Gin...%201/gapps.zip (the update is the same as the cyanogenmod one except it mounts the custpack partition)
4) Place on sdcard root keep name as gapps.zip

Only if your upgrading from Eclair follow this step
Installing recovery (for Eclair only)
1) Get the update package at: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/71594697/Update%20Package.zip (this is the Foryo one we only use it to install the recovery)
2) Power off your device (do not plug in to the USB port on your computer)
3) Hold Q and the Power button (if anything appears on your screen back to step 2)
4) Run InstallUpdateRecovery.bat in the install package.
5) Unplug your device (remove the battery, hold power and re-insert the battery)

Installing Gingerbread
Note if your already on gingerbread follow steps and make sure you install google apps before the reboot

1) Hold the volume down and power (it should boot into recovery). If it doesn't
the power off device and try again.
2) Once in recovery use left button on keypad to move selections and power to select an entry. Q to go back.
3) Select Apply update.zip from the menu
3) Select Install zip from sdcard
4) Select choose zip from sdcard
5) Select gapps.zip in the list
6) Select Yes - Install gapps.zip
7) Eclair only: format your data partition from mounts and storage menu. This may not be required but after the reboot if you see a boot loop please do this step.
8) Reboot the device via the menu. If you end up in recovery again unplug your device (remove the battery, hold power and re-insert the battery).


After Reboot (on new install only)
1) Wait for touch screen calibration first to calibrate your screen
2) Touch the Android like normal (press menu to set up your APN if you have data)
3) Setup your google account
4) If you need wireless then hit back (or cancel not sure which one :P) when its trying to connect (it will offer an option to connect)
5) Enjoy Gingerbread and report any bugs!

Notes
- What works: Cellular, Data, GPS, Camera, Bluetooth, Tethering
- Please enter your APN settings for your network to get data
- Update will not format your user data partition
- Dalvik heap and compcache are set to 24mb, 10% respectively. Feel free to tweak via cyanogenmod settings
- Kernel source: https://github.com/Idontknow186/Alcatel-OT980-Kernel

Whats new
- Bluetooth
- Tethering
- Camera support for locations, effects and zooming
- GPS related changes
- Rebased against newer nightly gingerbread branch (for better or worse)

What needs to be tested
- Bluetooth headsets
- GPS reliability (modified drivers again)

Known Issues
- You may need to tell your favorite tethering application to not use wpa_supplicant
- GPS config is for North America so fix may be slower in other countries (see update above for european config)
- Stock keyboard is oversized. Install your favorite from the market (should be fine I'm currently using stock).
- More reliable wireless in some cases with Regulatory domain: 14 (don't quote me on it might be nothing :P)
- Might break if you use link2sd, may need to format data. Can some one who is using it try updating the su binary in the super user application via the preferences after installation (not a 100% confirmed fix so try at your own risk).
- Bluetooth not functional for voice calls
