    Explain like I'm five: Versions...Gingerbread? Froyo? 2.3? 2.2? 4.5.602? What?!

    Alright, I've stumbled my way through this when I get around to hacking my phone, but I'm still unclear on a lot of the compatibility and terminology. I've been running Liberty 2.0.1 for 6 months now, and I just got around to upgrading to Android 2.3.

    Here's where I start to get confused.

    Some update threads are referring to Froyo as Android 2.3.340. And others refer to it as 2.2. Sometimes I see Gingerbread listed as 2.3, but I don't understand because Froyo is also referred to as 2.3. When something like CM7 requires I SBF back to 2.3.340 (Froyo), I look at my Android version (which says 2.3) and I don't know if I'm actually on 2.3.340 as required or not.

    Currently my phone says I'm on:

    Android 2.3.3
    System Version 4.5.602.MB810
    Build Number 4.5.1_57_DX5-32

    Is this Gingerbread, or Froyo? And is the SYSTEM version or the ANDROID version the number that designates GB/Froyo? And if it's Gingerbread, why do people refer to Froyo as 2.3.340?

    Explain like I'm five, please...

    Thanks!!

    alright.. .so you are on ginger bread...
    the difference like in the android system, system version, and build number
    android system 2.2x is froyo, android system 2.3 is gingerbread.
    system version 2.3.340 is froyo, system version 4.5.602 is the newest version of ginger bread..
    and ya... i know it can be a bit confusing when some people refer to 2.3.340 as froyo... then the next thread you read says 2.3.x is ginger... hopefully this helps clear things up for ya

    Froyo is Android 2.2 and the Motorola Froyo system file is 2.3.340.

    Android 2.3 is Gingerbread. The Motorola system files for GB are 4.5.573, 4.5.588, 4.5.591, 4.5.596 (Official), and 4.5.602 (Official newest).

    4.5.573- 4.5.595 were leaked GB files and are really irrelevant now.
