With Android 2.3 Gingerbread already announced officially, it was only a matter of time before enthusiasts started to come up with custom solutions for some of the most popular handsets on the market today.In all fairness, they are not yet there, but it might not be too long before the first custom ROMs start to emerge, especially since the Android 2.3 SDK was already released, and since Nexus S is only about one week away.
We already reported that some enthusiasts announced early work on ROMs for handsets like the HTC EVO 4G, Wildfire, or the Droid Eris, but it seems that even more of these are on their way to making an appearance on the Internet.
One of the most interesting appearances in this landscape would be the HTC HD2, the smartphone that was released last year with Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system on board.
However, other handsets are also expected to receive the said Gingerbread blessing, including HTC Hero, HTC Hero CDMA, HTC Desire, and HTC Incredible. And there is also the Xperia X10, which tasted only a preview Android 2.3 ROM for the time being.
Before you get too excited, we should note that all of these ports were aimed mainly at testing purposes, and that they won't be fit for daily usage.
At the moment, all that these ROMs would do would be to boot, without doing anything else, since even the basic functions won't work properly.
A list with all of the devices that should taste a custom Gingerbread ROM soon, as well as links to the specific forum threads, can be found on this post on XDA-Developers.
Those who would like to give them a try should back up all data on their devices before proceeding, so as to make sure that no important data is during the installation.
Those who are not familiar with the installation of such software solutions should stay away from them, so that nothing unwanted would happen with their handsets.
