Whenever a new
version of Android

is released, one thing you can always count on is the developer community
hacking it onto as many devices as they can

. Using the kernel and system image from the
Nexus S

, developer

XDA Developers

was able to get a (mildly) working build of

up and running on his
Samsung Galaxy S


Although it's a rather crippled build -- and it'll cost you GPS, Wi-Fi, voice, and camera functionality -- it's definitely a step in the right direction. Every good custom ROM starts with a buggy, near useless build -- these things don't happen overnight.

Check out a video of the Galaxy S running Gingerbread after the break.
