    The only way you will be able to install a rom is by rooting. It is fairly easy on the droid as I did it all the time. The best mod in my opion is buglessbeast or cm7.

    And cyanogenmod. There's Pete's build and Cyanogenmod. Officially? Most likely not, but there are some rumors...

    Hey guys, lets not steer him into rooting. Its not needed and definetly not worth going against his father. Expecially since it voids warrenty. Gingerbread is ok, its not worth the fuss. Froyo is good. And any rom is unofficial anyway, wont run like the OEM if it does get 2.3.

    i dont get the rooting voids warranty argument, thats what sbf's are for.

    and what do you mean by "won't run like oem" you mean it won't be slow and crappy?

    if your dad says no than dont go against him but if you want him to consider saying yes tell him you can speed up his phone and give him cool features like wifi tethering for free

    /on topic
    there are plenty of gingerbread roms out there, idk how stable they are but i know they are out there

    EDIT:
    if you had your phone for more than 1 year than you already lost your warranty unless you bought the extended warranty from motorola so if your phone is over 1 year old you have nothing to lose really

    Its kind of the same arguement as if you "borrow" a piece of jewlery from a store you work at then "returning" it later... You still broke the rules. SBF is nice but if you jazz up your phone, its all on you, it shouldnt be on Moto to honor the warrenty that you effectively broke off when you rooted. Want me to give any other moral talks? My code says thats a nono...at least thats how i was brought up. I hope ethics and moral codes were bright up with other peeps across the states. I know they give these talks in military. And by OEM i mean Moto hasnt put their blessings on any Gingerbread code thats out right now. I fully believe a moto released Droid 1 specific update will run better than the current roms. Not a slur toward the devs but this happens everytime an update comes out. froyo we were running rigged sdk leaks on our phones and leaks before the Official one came out. The devs do what the can but when Moto ports it the drivers and such will all be correct. Im running UD 3.0 and its great but i am having some issues i have no dout Motos offical would definetly solve. same goes for petes.
