    Is the Droid 1 dead in terms of OS updates/upgrades?

    I like my Droid 1 but wonder if there will ever be an update or upgrade to it's OS?

    If not, then I think it's time for me to root the thing and see what I can squeeze out of it.

    It will probably not get anymore updates! The only update now is gingerbread, and the d1 will not see gingerbread! I rooted my d1 about 8 months ago and have never looked back. Its like getting a new phone with all the things you can do once rooted! Just do your research first!

    Officially there won't be any OTA upgrades.

    However, this development community keeps pushing out the ROMs and you can have Gingerbread thanks to the talent on this forum.

    I strongly suggest rooting. Your phone will feel like new!

    GB can be run on the OG DROID, however there are problems with every GB build out there. Some are small things, others are larger problems. I played around w/ GB for a little bit, but the lack of being able to multitask sent me running back to froyo.

    Froyo just works on the D1. GB uses way too much ram for the D1 to be able to handle it correctly. I've been using the Droid Concepts roms and they work great. AFAIK Droid Concepts is the only froyo rom for the D1 that is still being updated, all of the others have moved on to Gingerbread.

    Do some research about what is involved w/ rooting and loading a custom recovery. Its really not difficult, just a little overwhelming at first. This board is a GREAT resource for helping with issues that might arise. Oh and these phones are very difficult to brick permanently, you can always restore a backup to get back to where you were beforehand.

    Agreed with previous post, the Devs have done an outstanding job bringing us gingerbread roms but everyone I have tried has been a resource killer. Its not a dev issue its just the phone is not meant to handle GB. It is why I am waiting to see how the root process on the d3 plays out and that will be my next phone, most likely. My D1 has become so sluggish handling apps now that is causes more frustration than good. I love this phone dearly but it is time to move on.

    I use SS 5.4 with no problems. Maybe it's just my phone but no gingerbread issues here.

    There wont be anymore official updates for the OG Droid. 2.2.2 was the last update it received. Here's the link I used to root my Droid: Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version
