    So, think about it. The only reasons that we know of that might keep gingerbread from the droid 1 is the cpu and ram. We could fix that with ease!

    Cpu: the first application is setcpu, and its widely known on the market. You can use it to Overclock to 1000, and that problem is solved!

    Ram: now, gingerbread might require twice as much ran as the droid 1 has. Time to bring out the second application, rom manager. Also widely known, it has the feature of partioning your sd card, and creating swap, up to the amount of 256mb. Using an application called swapper 2, you can use the swap as ram. See, that solves the last issue!

    Do you think the D1 is ready for gingerbread?

    No ginger bread will not be coming to the droid 1 and maybe not even the droid x. As for the cracked ass idea it won't work the os will look deep into the kernel for system info when installing and this is assuming ginger will even be available as an upgrade from froyo Google may ear mark ginger as a whole new os requiring install from a fresh sbf that would negate any apps you have mentioned

    That might help you to run a gingerbread rom but if google isn't pushing it to the d1 then overclocking wont make it show up.

    To the OP: Your talking about a rooted Droid phone. Their are a lot of people that still have the Droid as an unrooted device.
