    "Great" is a relative term. There are still some serious issues. Sucks that 3g is giving devs so much trouble.

    Its sad to see so many people having issues with the OG Droid. I've been running SS 5.2 and zero issues. It runs better than any other Android phone I've seen except the Thunderbolt.

    CM7 has actually been outstanding for me and possibly the best my Droid has run with exception of a few bug, most of which are now fixed. The latest builds have increased fluidity due to what looks to be some framework changes in the change logs.

    The solution to running GB successfully is running compcache with a backing swap partition. The swap partition provides the memory headroom needed to prevent poor performance and premature OOM kills.

    Though, we might not see the next iteration of Android for OG, let's hope there will be a few dedicated devs left around to attempt it. Bringing 3d hardware acceleration to the Droid would be one last amazing trick. Either way, GB CM7 Final will be a great send-off for what is already a classic & revolutionary device in its time if that's all we get.

    Well put. Now with Motorola halting a release of a new phone until 3rd or 4th quarter, I'm gonna have to chill with the D1 for a while. In tech time 6mos is like 5 human years. lol Who knows what will be out by then. Holograph technology so you could sit right next to the person your talking???

    Facebook fc

    Has anyone using cm7 had a problem with facebook fc when you hit the message icon? I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling but still getting the fc.

    Try "Flow" for Facebook I like it better than the official FB app and it works fine with CM7.
