Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the Samsung Galaxy S and HTC HD2 already out in the wild

It didn’t take long for the XDA boys to port Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread on the Samsung Galaxy S and also the HTC HD2. Don’t get to excited yet thought because those are still early preview builds that can’t really be used because of missing features and bugs. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S the ROM is based on the Nexus S kernel:

Which filesystem ?
This early preview runs on Ext4. no RFS at all, the kernel don’t support RFS.
Does everything work ?
Nope, but I must admit I didn’t expect such a result.
Don’t work: GPS / Voice / Wifi / some Buttons / camera
Work: everything else: like sound, GL acceleration etc
Will it work ?
I think most of it will work after countless hours spent on it.
Is it flashable with Odin ?
That’s a good idea , i think i’ll do that tomorrow.
