,----[ Quote ]
| However, whilst the new versionâs name was 
| mentioned, any other given facts seemed to

| that because development was moving so 
| swiftly, by the time âGingerbreadâ became 
| widely available they would âlikely be on 
| (Linux kernel 2.6.).33 or .34.â

| extensible, but the hardware that is wrapped 
| around the OS isn't always conducive to all 
| the possibilities. The trick isn't quite 
| polished, it involves making your own USB 
| cord and some cable swapping during a hard 
| boot. It's still a little buggy, but it's a 
| great step forward.
