Owners of a Samsung DROID Charge smartphone on Verizon Wireless' airwaves can now download and install a new software on their devices, so as to have a taste of the Gingerbread operating system flavor the device should receive soon.Unfortunately, this is not the official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update that Samsung and Verizon are preparing for the device, but only a leaked ROM.
Available as version EC1H, the software will offer DROID Charge users the possibility to make an idea of what should soon arrive on their devices via the official channels.
According to some of those who gave the leaked ROM a try, it feels pretty polished, though it is certainly not a final piece of software.
The build is certainly one of the latest ones to be produced before the final OS upgrade is made available, though no official info on when that might happen has emerged so far.
The upgrade should bring the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS flavor on DROID Charge, some suggested.
Those who would like to download and install the new software update on their DROID Charge devices will find more info on it on the Android Forums here (via).
Before proceeding with the installation, they should keep in mind that this is not an official release, and that they would be the only ones responsible in the event that anything goes wrong.
Users should take all the necessary precautions before starting the installation, and they should also keep in mind that the installation of unofficial OSes on their devices will void warranty.
For the time being, however, no official announcement on the arrival date of Android 2.3.4 for the DROID Charge emerged.
One thing that we know at the moment is that Verizon does plan on delivering the OS upgrade to its LTE-based mobile phone, the same as it plans for other similar handsets on its airwaves.
