Google The source code for Android 2.3 has been released. "Nexus S went on sale yesterday morning in the US, running Gingerbread. Just like I did for Froyo, I'm open-sourcing the matching Android platform source code, right after the first consumers get their hands on it. I'm going to start literally right now, and the process will take a few hours."

Basically with android aosp, the phone could (depending on the model) boot, but beyond that things that require drivers not in the google kernel will not work.

Incidentally, drivers and *extra stuff* is one the reason things like CyanogenMod exist. It is up to the community to add all the extra stuff that is not included in the android releases.
