Hello,

Is there a major difference between android 2.2 Froyo and 2.3 Gingerbread for our O2x?

Froyo was fine on my phone, but i read that froyo does not support multi core rendering.
Still, the Kernel in Stock GB is Froyo kernel right (2.6.xx.x)?
So are there any advantages coming with gb?
Ics (cm9, aokp) is not ready for daily use, in cm7 i dont like the camera (quality), also i use lg smartshare and music. So its not about CM or Stock, i just want to know if gb has advantages over froyo on the O2x.
btw i really like the froyo cam mod, looks very interesting

Thank you very much,
cheers

Froyo is a bit laggy, and nothing really happens in GB, so there isnīt that much of a different other then the version number and some bugfixes.

umm isnt the question here not froyo vs gingerbread but more like... stock vs custom roms ?

because... you know.... there is an official gingerbread rom and stuff...

in my experience gingerbread is better because it uses less battery and is better at ram management.

Gingerbread is faster and more bug-free, but froyo was smoother than GB.

ginger is generally better with a better management of the ram (no there is still a true multitasking).
20q is a great firmware, I, however, prefer CM7 ....

I personally prefer v20q stock rom with spica SR3R2 kernel. I have used this phone since launch day back in march 2011...I can say that the official rom updates has gone a long way with lots of improvements generally in terms of speed and battery life. I have not tried cm7 so I cannot compare.

Just cross your fingers and hope that when stock ICS is released (better be soon) it actually isn't laggy and free of bugs.

The only thing, ppl still sticking with this phone is official ICS release. It could further open a new window for development.
