Somebody should ask to Paul regarding the Sense UI/Desire ROM with Gingerbread on the Nexus 1.
Its sad but he's busy playing with his 2X and he is not answering my posts.
More than never it seems to me that the Nexus 1 is a dead phone.
I ran MCR for over a year and it was great but not so much anymore. The gingerbread MCR VPN is broken and that is fatal as far as I'm concerned. If the VPN worked, I might have been willing to live with the weekly crash and reboot loops. Now I don't have either problem.
I gave up on the gingerbread MCR and installed the CM7 RC a few weeks ago. CM7 stable was released today. I updated to the stable release today and it works well. In fact I cannot tell the difference between CM 7.0.0 stable and RC4. They are both very stable. Everything works great and there are lots of new features to explore.
