At the beginning of this month, Google unveiled the latest version of Android Gingerbread along with the Nexus S. When the Nexus One was launched, it featured blazing edge hardware and set the ‘benchmark’ for other Android phones to follow. However, the Nexus S is based on the popular Samsung Galaxy S hardware with a few subtle changes.
These changes include a NFC chip, Bluetooth 2.1, no microSD card slot, an LED flash and no FM radio. All Galaxy S owners hoped that since both the phones have a similar hardware, the Android modding community will soon cook an Android 2.3 Gingerbread based ROM for the Galaxy S.
Today, one of the most popular developer/modder on the Galaxy S modding scene supercurio has managed to get Android 2.3 up and working on his Galaxy S. He has even uploaded a video of his Galaxy S running Android 2.3 :
However, there are still some bugs with this ROM like the Wi-Fi is a no go and the capacitive touch keys need to be re-mapped as well. Nevertheless, the awesome guy that supercurio is, he has promised to fix all these small bugs and release an Android 2.3 ROM for the Galaxy S. Kudos to supercurio!
