    Buying my wife an OG Droid for her birthday

    I have a Droid X, I have flashed it / .SBF'd a dozen times. I am buying an OG droid from a friend and I want to .SBF, root and then install the newest stable version of MIUI.

    I know I can get the MIUI from MIUI.us, but can someone point me to the .SBF and the current root option?

    I may be searching in the wrong places but it seems like everyone has had their OG Droid for so long that no one needs the basics anymore.

    You don't really need to sbf an og Droid...just rooting and installing a custom recovery (easiest way is via rom manager) and wiping everything in recovery (wipe data, cache, dalvik cache, and system)
    And as far as I know the easiest way to current root is with the gingerbreak.apk which can be found by searching www.4shared.com or on xda forums too I believe

    also, another thing to keep in mind is whether you want a gingerbread rom or a froyo.

    since its for your wife and you wont always be with her phone 24/7 to trouble shoot it, that you go witha froyo rom. my wife has a D1 also and I've avoided upgrading her phone to a GB ROM for that very reason. GB causes too many issues with apps being killed, soft/hard boots, phone freezes, lost sms, inability to answer incoming calls...all due to memory issues.

    The last thing i need in life is to give the wife anymore reasons to nag at me.

    my wifes had UD2.5 since she bought an dI rooted a yr ago.

    Interesting, is there still a MIUI ROM available based on Froyo?

    The last froyo released for MIUI is [New!]D1-MIUI-1.3.25.0_2.2

    its no longer being developed so support will probably be sparse

    It has come a long way and works very well but if your wife uses the camera a lot, you may want to reconsider. Not sure if everyone has this problem but my camera doesn't work very well at all and actually causes reboots. Just for pain avoidance, I got my wife an iphone. Not trolling -- just saying.
