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."

For releasing the Gingerbread code.


I second the props. I wonder when Gingerbread will hit the N1? ;-P

It is going to be a while. Apparently there is a ton of ABI breakage in gingerbread. This means that a lot of drivers (and proprietary bits) are going to have to be redone for gingerbread

Shouldn't take too long. But you have to remember that the N1 is no longer the primary dev phone so it may take longer than froyo
