SnkBitten - An AOSP Motorola Droid ROM (2.2.1)..... with a few extras.
Click to Download
(2.2.2 is available) New version
A ROM I have compiled from source is now available on Rom Manager (premium version).
It's also available from my website SnkBitten Motorola Droid ROM.
(both as a download or as a Rom Manager Web-Connect initiator)
This is not the "fastest" or "feature packed" ROM available, there are many other great choices out there. This is I've found to be a stable and smooth ROM that I have enjoyed on my phone.
This was compiled from the latest code pushed to open source (OS 2.2.1) and is for the Motorola Droid. I have been working on this ROM maintaining sync with Google/Android while putting in a few extras.
This ROM is very close to straight stock except being compiled from the latest source (2.2.1) and uses the FRG22D proprietary files and proper market fingerprint. My goal when I started this was to retain the stock look and feel of a vanilla Android system but adding some extra support or features that didn't branch off too far from stock.
I have been running this for a few weeks and after the suggestion from a few of my friends who have been testing and/or running this ROM I decided to make it available for others. I'd like to give a special thanks to Deodexed as he provided a lot of testing on his spare Droid once I got tired of constantly flashing and setting mine up again and again...
This has the latest Gmail app and I have removed Maps, Streetview and Google Voice Search as they are available in the Market. Twitter and AmazonMp3 were also removed (from personal choice).
I leaned heavily on cvpcs's and cyanogenmod's github accounts for the little extras and for some pushes in the right direction.

Special thanks to cvpcs, cyanogenmod, InsaneNemesis, Woodyman and koush. This would not have been possible without help from all the above either via emails, pms or following/borrowing from their respective github repositories. Again, thanks to Deodexed for testing this ROM as I tweaked it or added new features.
