Dell Streak gets Gingerbread 2.3.3 (unofficially, of course)

Gingerstreak Forget the Rapture. A warm Gingerbread man descended upon the Dell Streak over the weekend and saved its users from spending eternity in frigid Froyo.

DJ_Steve unleashed StreakDroid 2.0 (also known as GingerStreak) to the rooted masses, bringing the pocket tablet that launched with Android 1.6 (Donut) last year to Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread). This comes just days after the dev we'd be lost without delivered Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) to the Streak 7, so to say that Steve is dedicated definitely wouldn't do justice to his tireless efforts and hard work. The man is a machine!

The build has a few issues, as is often the case with custom ROMs, but if you insist on having the latest version of Android running on your Streak, have at it below. And if you prefer to wait for an official build from Dell . . . well, let's just say StreakDroid will be on version 4 (Jelly Roll?) by then.
