Disclaimer:
  • Use these files at your own risk. I take no responsibility should anything break, implode, explode, etc.
  • Please know how to use RSD Lite and SBF back to 2.4.29 or 2.4.330 should things go awry.
Description:
This is mainly for the users of TBH Band unlock. Since the band unlock works on the 2.4.29(as per TBH) and 2.4.330(as per eddyzenl http://rootzwiki.com...d-on-330-to-gb/) radio, these files are intended for those who wish to keep the older radio for the band unlock but want to experience Gingerbread.

The kernel zip will flash a new logo, kernel, and devtree on the phone. The kernel zip should only need to be flashed once and if you are on Froyo.

The nandroid has the backup of the 608 Gingerbread rom (pre-rooted).

Credits:
  • aceoyame - original D2G Gingerbread leak
  • ngocha2005 - 608 D2G Gingerbread leak
  • CyanogenDefy - releasing CM7 on the Defy from which I borrowed this method of writing another kernel on the phone (I'm sure others have done it before)
Install Instructions:
  • Download both files below. One will be a zip to flash from bootstrapper and the other is a nandroid backup (you must open the zip for the nandroid)
  • Flash D2G-608-Kernel.zip (This should only need to be done once to get to GB)
  • Restore nandroid backup or flash a GB rom. Nandroid should be labeled as 2011-10-26.14.34.37
  • Wipe data/cache and Dalvik
  • Reboot and enjoy!
Downloads:

For those who have used the US band unlock from TBH, it allows them to upgrade to the leaked Gingerbread.

It also opens up the Gingerbread roms for those who have been stuck on Froyo because of the band unlock.

Oh snap! Awesome work! So you can flash GB roms and everything, but still have the Froyo radio with the band unlock?

That's correct. I've updated first post with pics of the Moto Gingerbread and latest Miui with older radio baseband.

You need to restore the nandroid backup as well. All you've done is flash a GB kernel with a Froyo system.

You also need to pull the nandroid out of the zip and put it in the backup folder.
