    Droid Charge

    Hello, i just got the new droid charge and its very nice. I want to know if Samsung is going to release gingerbread up date? How can i get permanent root on my droid carge so i can continue using my root tools i purchased and install new roms hopefully gingerbread when they start becomming avaliable? I heard in one of the forums that the bootloader is unlocked and i also heard kjar the dev that works with jrummy is going to start doing work with the droid charge i seen kjar post in another forum but i cant remember the forum he posted in.

    Samsung will do what Samsung wants or is paid to do when it comes to software updates of such a major level. As for permanent root, give it time.

    I agree with Furbearingmammal and what he stated. Samsung is that way with all carriers. They don't feel they shouldn't be paid for the software updates.

    Ok, what about the devs will they start working on gingerbread roms to install on the droid charge? This is a very nice phone and it will be disapointing to see no devs comming out with gb roms and stuff like they did with the droidx. If nothing good is going to go on with this phone im going to take it back before my 15 days is up and force myself to wait on the droid bionic eventhou they keep delaying the release.

    Any ROM for the Droid X is a modified theme; the locked bootloader saw to that. Same with any other locked down phone that they never hacked or bypassed the bootloader.

    If there's no permanent root there will be no ROMs, period. Until permanent root is achieved you'll just have to deal with what Sammy's felt fit to give you. So, I council patience, my young padawan. :D

    I agree with FBM. He is correct with the way it works with rom and dev of roms.

    The force is strong with FBM!

    ... you can root your Charge, it's possible already.

    Possible. And yep, the Charge has an unlocked bootloader... so you'll see WAYYYYY more customization with the Charge if the dev community gets behind it. Since it's an LTE device with much better battery life than the Thunderbolt, I suspect that the Charge will be just fine, given time. Gingerbread will be released, for sure though. It's a hummingbird based device. Gingerbread development is quite far along for Samsung's hummingbird devices like the Galaxy S. The only thing that's different between the Galaxy S and the Charge is that the Charge has LTE radios. I'm guessing shortly after the Fascinate gets Gingerbread, the Charge will as well.

    Also, as soon as the Charge gets some kernel devs, you'll see some really cool stuff. Like Voodoo sound support for the Wolfson audio or kernel level overclocking support...

    I'll be rooting (using ODIN) shortly. Just wanna put the phone through it's paces a lil longer (and be certain I'm keeping the Charge) before rooting this bad boy.
