1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    The Motorola Droid 1 (D1, OG Droid, A855, sholes) was my first android phone, and I am currently on my second after my first became stuck in Airplane Mode forever. I have had a Samsung Continuum (terrible) and a Droid X (decent) in between, but this D1 is up and running now when my DX is not. I am writing this because I feel like I wasted a great deal of time muddling through posts, trying ROM after ROM, only to lose functionality of a key component such as camera, GPS, etc. Having started out on FroYo and fairly quickly losing development support from Verizon, I tried many GB, ICS, and even JB ROMS, each lacking a fundamental function inevitably leading me back to an old stock GB. After literally years of searching, I found exactly what I needed in chevycam94’s Steel Droid 11. The only issue I have is that sometimes my 3G data will go out and the status bar icon will show grey instead of blue, but a simple reboot and/or turning mobile data off then back on fixes it every time. I had SOOOO many issues with other ROMs through this process that I just wanted to put this out there in hopes that I may save someone time and frustration in the future.

    There are plenty of different builds on the post, But you can find it here:

    Wi-Fi is broken (12 pre13). Nice ROM otherwise.
    11 is not as nice looking as 12 pre13)
    Flashed P3Droid kernel (LV 250-1100) and 12 pre13 worked.

    I can verify that installing another Kernel will fix the issue. I just installed ChevyNo.1's ChevyNo1-1.2Ghz-lowV-7slot-update.zip and was able to get WiFi to work.

    That being said, maybe the problem isn't the Kernel itself, but somehow how Wi-Fi is linked to it, and reinstalling a Kernel is fixing the link?

    No wifi issues per se, I actually saw an improvement in strength (it may be that the previous one just sucked that much), although I do find my 3G is slow to come back after a phone call. All in all, still satisfied.
