I have the OG droid and last week I decided to root it and flash the ROM. Came across droidforums while figuring out how to do that. Then clockworkmod/ROMmanager failed and I got stuck in a boot loop. Spent all night learning about sbf files to unroot it. At some point I actually looked up the price of new android phones. Eventually I got it back and was able to successfully flash the ROM. Now i'm running Peter Alfanso's GPA16 @800mHz.
Anyway, I'm a medical student and this is what I do for study breaks
