We have just informed you about an unofficial Gingerbread update for the Google Nexus One handset, but now we’re pleased to say that a Gingerbread build is now available for the outdated, but cult classic HTC HD2 handset.
As reported from Phandroid, the download has once again surfaced from the guys over at XDA-Developers Forums, and it is user m-deejay that you should thank for providing the links as well as instructions.
It is amazing, and pleasantly surprising to think that the originally Windows 6.5-based HTC HD2 handset has beat handsets such as the Motorola Droid, Droid X and HTC EVO 4G to the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update table.
However, it’s not all plain sailing. There are a few notable features which don’t work with Gingerbread at the moment, and these include the likes of the camera, GPS, the auto backlight and contact syncing. You’ll find a list of the features that do work over at Phandroid.
Head to the XDA forums for the download. If you are willing to try this out, let us know how you get on. Are you happy that the ancient HD2 has Gingerbread?
