    Gingerbread Roms for Original Droid


    If you can't wait to experiment to see how Gingerbread OS 2.3 runs on your "old-reliable" original Droid, then a couple of our forum members "got you covered." Neubanks89 worked up a quick Rom that won't do Google Apps, and steinman, utilizing neubanks89's previous work, created one that adds Google apps support. That's the kind of indirect community teamwork that makes the world a better place! Thanks to these guys you can breathe some new life into your early generation Droid.

    They don't have everything working, but their time and effort show through in their work regardless. User feedback has been tremendous. Everyone seems excited by how quick Gingerbread runs, even on the older phone. It must be a very efficiently coded OS build.

    For more support here is neubanks89's thread: neubanks89's Gingerbread Rom thread w/o Google apps support.
    And, here is steinman's thread: steinman's Gingerbread Rom thread WITH Google apps support.

    Thanks again to these genius code-masters for digging into the guts of this cookie, and just in time for Christmas too!

    Sounds great but I prefer to wait until it's out of the oven and Google says it's done before I try it out.

    Older? OLDER???? OK, yeah I realize a phone is obsolete 2 weeks after it's released. I have no problem with that. But couldn't we find a kinder, gentler word? How about "mature"? "Well-seasoned"? Personally, I prefer "Virile and still filled with piss and vinegar."

    Do you think we'll have the same madness we had when Froyo came out?

    Well, I realize you were talking about ROMS, and my prejudiced view is only intelligent, reasonable people use ROMs. So that's not an issue.

    But as Froyo began to get distributed, the forum was filled with otherwise "normal" people screaming, "IS IT HERE YET, IS IT HERE YET?!?!?!?!" "DAMN GOOGLE!" "DAMN MOTOROLA!!!" "DAMN VERIZON!!"

    Oh and don't forget that oldie but goodie, "WILL I LOSE ROOT?!?!?!?!?"

    I don't think that will happen with 2.3. This is a thread for the original droid and I don't think that that many people think that it will be updated by verizon/moto. Some of that hate was moto's fault if I remember correctly they announced a release date that they missed very poorly and did not confront the community about it.
