    My OG Droid Has Been Retired

    Well, I have to report that my OG Droid has officially been retired from active duty. I decided to pull the trigger on the upgrade that I've been eligible for since April. I decided not to wait anymore for the Nexus, and instead opted for the Rezound, and after two weeks, I'm glad I did. In my opinion it has more bang for the buck hardware-wise, and since it will eventually get ICS, I thought it was a better buy. Plus, it came with a $100 pair of headphones! LOL

    After two weeks, I am very happy with it and have no complaints, although Sense, together with no root, is taking some getting used to! LOL I already installed Launcher Pro. I am gonna miss SS being on my phone, but I will continue to keep in touch with the Chevy community and will continue to play with my OG Droid (running SS 5.5). Who knows- maybe one day it will be on a rooted Rezound (I hope!)! Lol

    I want to take this opportunity to thank Chevy for extending the life of my OG Droid and making it awesome, and I hope to have SS running on my Rezound in the future. Chevy, I hope that all is well in your personal life and with your family, and you will remain in my prayers. Thanks again, and thank you to everyone on this forum for all the help and support you've offered over the past year.

    Sadly mine too will be retired on Monday..... Atleast for now..

    Not even sure why I got something new since I still like my OG Droid just fine and it still works/looks like new.... I think I just got carried away on Black Friday and Cyber Monday buying and ordering up things I didn't need, but in this case free is free.

    I ordered up a red Incredible 2 on "Cyber Monday" since it was free with free activation..... Not sure how I got one when people who ordered Friday and Saturday got denied. I guess they didn't pass them out in the order in which they were ordered. Feel bad they got screwed, but mine is cuurently at the Fedex sort facility near me and will arrive Monday.

    Customer service tried to get me to accept a black one since they over sold the reds, but I wasn't having it.... And they wouldn't give me an X2 or D3.

    I didn't jump on any of the 4g phones, mainly because 4g isn't established enough yet.... And I don't want a data cap...

    I figure if I dont like the red I will ebay it or send it back and wait for something else..... The white Razr or Droid 4 could make me go 4g, but the Galaxy Nexus wouldn't since I never liked Samsungs phones and none of the others interest me.


    I never even got to use my new/in box back up Droid either..... Atleast I have 2 solid phones to fall back on if I dont't like the Dinc2 I guess.


    Anyways, thanks Chevy... You made the phone much better and I enjoyed messing with it, but I don't think I will root and rom the new one... It was too much too keep up on at times and unfortunatlely you don't make roms for the Dinc2, so I will probably stay stock..... Maybe

    I'm another that wants to say thanks to you, Chevy, and goodbye to my OG. I picked up my Nexus this morning. It's been fun and your mod made it that way.

    Same here, thanks Chevy for all the great work you've done. If you ever do something for the Nexus you can be sure I'll be back trying it out

    Same for me. Want to thank Chevy for keeping my D1 going. Getting the GN this morning and putting the D1 in the drawer.
    Now the question is how long before I root the Nexus? I might use stock for a little while.
    Galaxy Nexus absolutely my best phone ever.

    I thought about waiting, but even if you don't root, at least unlock the bootloader right away. Unlocking the bootloader will factory wipe your phone and if you wait until you've used it for a while, there's no way to back up stuff like if you are rooted. From what I've heard, the root step doesn't wipe the phone, just the bootloader unlock.

    Add my name to the "thanks Chevy" list.
    And if you're grandfathered into unlimited data, going 4g won't cap you.

    Well my time has come to move on also. My sister-in law gave me 2 phones. A Motorola Milestone X and a Samsung Galaxy S. I got the Samsung activated yesterday, rooted it, and got ICS running on it. Gonna try to post a screenshot. It's super smooth & everything works great! Thanks to all the developers and everyone here for the awesome help you provided. I will forever be in debt to this forum. I have a stash of D1 roms & a few themes if anyone wants um.

    I'm not giving up on OG.... I also am not losing my unlimited data plan! Been running SS 5.2 for 18 months or so , looking at 5.6 now. We don't have 4G here, so new phones don't impress me yet.
    rooted...Trusting ChevyNo1...SS5.6 (11/23/2012)
    This should keep me busy for a while
