PLEASE READ CLEARLY FIRST BEFORE DOWNLOADING ANYTHING

Disclaimer
Im gonna pull this straight from infinitybiff when I say, "I'm not a dev, nor do I claim to be, yes this is easy, sharing is caring. If your phone explodes, not it."

This rom is extremely alpha, it is more of a proof of concept than anything.
Just in case you didnt understand, this rom is highly experimental.
Flash at your own risk. If you have any ideas to make this rom better, please, by all means, contact me.

This rom was made using the sdk dump that I pulled out yesterday, however Darkstone1337 made the rom bootable and passed on the knowledge,
then M-deejay took that knowledge and made the core of this rom. I am just putting some things in it to make it a little better.

Installation
Extract the "Android" folder in the ZIP file below to your MicroSD Card, pop it into your HD2, open File Explorer from WinMo, find the Android folder, tap CLRCAD.exe and then Haret.exe, and you're off!

Downloads
Im gonna say version 0.1 http://www.mediafire.com/?7o7mgkqpb3falg6

Credits
Darkstone1337 - For making Gingerbread on our phones possible.
M-deejay - For then using that knowledge and making the core of this rom.
atoore - Used his 262mb data.img
dakluck - Found the fix for BSOD (temporary)
m-deejay - Used his kernel. They rock.
IcedCube - Currently making me a data.img that seems to fix some problems.

Testers
dakluck - Awesome dude for finding the temp BSOD fix
MotoMudder77 - Provides me with all the logcats I could ever need
Legioner79 - Still waiting for him to get on Gtalk

If I use anything else, credit will be given.

Known bugs
White screen after animation/menu popup, just swipe or touch anywhere in the white area and it should go away. Its just slow screen redraw.
Home button does not work.
Slow (of course)

Quick edit
Wow, 45 downloads in less than 10 minutes? Thanks all!

am i just stiupid or is my english too bad for understanding this?^^
when i read ROM, my brain says "u have to flash it"
but installation says:
"Extract the "Android" folder in the ZIP file below to your MicroSD Card, pop it into your HD2, open File Explorer from WinMo, find the Android folder, tap CLRCAD.exe and then Haret.exe, and you're off!"

so what exactly is the improvement in this version?^^

edit: its 2.3...now its makes sense^^

Slight increase in speed because of MDJs S7.5 kernel, and atoores data.img. I still dont know why, but that data.img helps with warding off boot issues.

This boots very quickly!

Has a long way to go but its awesome to see gingerbread booting on our hd2s. If you need any testing done, I'd be more then happy to do what I can.

Thanks to those who have put the work into this so far!

Say Hello World!

Send from my HD2 gingerbread.!


What I like;

-No chopper on scrolling, but maybe is because SDK don't have hardware acceleration, let's see in future.
- fast data

:D

Great first try of getting Gingerbread on our beloved HD2. Great to see that it boots up. Hope there will be new builds with extended functionality in the future.

Big thanks to the devs!

My experience so far.

- Quick boot
- Installs .apk files from the AdroidApps folder
- A lot of lag. In fact it hangs most of the time
- No or very bad signal
- No or very bad data connection
- menu graphics are messed up

Wow,

thanks so much!

I was able to record a short video of my HD2 running SPGinger:

Of course there are some bugs but data connection is fine for me (Vodafone Germany).
Also I can install the most apps with the FileExplorer.
I think in about one week we'll all run around with the perfect GingerHD2beast!

So long.
