All I have done here is compiled gingerbread from source by following the guide in the cyanogenmod wiki. I am not developing this, just compiling.

Odd_Sam said it best: "Just so everyone understands, this is a rom based off the developmental source code of CyanogenMod 7. OP is not a developer and has no plans to fix any issues that come up. This is more or less a sneak preview of CM 7. OP is just compiling the public source code for CM 7. Treat these "releases" as a "nightly" build. And just for clarification these builds will be experimental so do not report bugs in this thread or anywhere else. CM devs know what does and does not work."

3d acceleration, video camera and network location do not work.

google apps: http://ipfreelytech.net/android/gingerbread-gapps-hdpi-20101221.zip

it seems that its closer to AOSP than CM at this point, while I compiled it with the cyanogen bits, it seems there aren't many cyanogen commits for gingerbread yet, so things like the power control widgets in the notification bar and the cyanogenmod settings menu are missing.

The 3d acceleration is due to a missing library and will likely not be fixed until after the N1 gingerbread OTA drops.

I haven't posted any newer builds because there is more stuff broken compared to this build.

looking through the rom, it seems that its closer to AOSP than it CM at this point, while I compiled it with the cyanogen bits, it seems there simply aren't many cyanogen commits for gingerbread yet, so things like the power control widgets in the notification bar and the cyanogenmod settings menu are missing.

installing google apps results in boot loop.

I do not have a gsm desire for testing, and secondly there are ALREADY gingerbread roms for the gsm desire. I mainly did this because I was tired of CDMA being left out of the gingerbread fun.

if you want gingerbread on your GSM desire go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=829734

if you want to you can do a build yourself the way I did, I followed this guide: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Compile_CyanogenMod_for_Bravo

when you do the repo init change -b froyo to -b gingerbread
you gonna make one for GSM Desire ?

you GSM users are not missing anything. While I built this as a CM build, at this point its pretty much straight AOSP. besides the boot logo the only thing cyanogen about it is the kernel. I changed the thread title to better reflect that.

I am familiar with compiling cyanogenmod, never tried doing straight AOSP and couldn't find a guide, so thats why the build is as it is.

The cdma crowd had nothing at all in the way of a gingerbread rom posted here or elsewhere i could find on the internets.

Great work with the update! I couldn't get my contacts to sync. I attempted to import the contacts in vCard to no avail. I didn't play around with it much but look forward to future updates. Happy holidays!

Good to see the CDMA Desire get a gingerbread ROM.

I felt like I was getting left out :O

Question though.... are you going to be fixing the issues like 3D Acceleration, or did you just compile this?

So just so everyone understands, this is a rom based off the developmental source code of CyanogenMod 7. OP is not a developer and has no plans to fix any issues that come up. This is more or less a sneak preview of CM 7. OP is just compiling the public source code for CM 7. Treat these "releases" as a "nightly" build. And just for clarification these builds will be experimental so do not report bugs in this thread or anywhere else. CM devs know what does and does not work.

Thank you, I tried very hard to get that point across, but I suspect people don't always read everything. Nightly is exactly what they are, every night I sync the repo and build.

Edited the OP to include a quote of your post.
