So I've been reading since I did my root and flashed infusion 1.8 I'm wanting to mess around with custom roms I was seeing there is an miui it says it's 2.3.5 based my question is do I have to have ginger bread to flash this rom is that what it means when it's 2.3.5 based? I've googled and looked around the forums and couldn't really find anything on the subject so even a link would help I dont mind reading for myself thx guys

If you feel you are a noob, I would recommend non miui or non cm9 roms.

No need to update since it is an " update" if your rooted and all that good stuff and flash a Gingerbread ROM you will now have Gingerbread
