    They are NOT making ROMs for it now.

    That's not going to happen until the bootloader is cracked (much different than root) - but for many technical reasons, the chances of that happenening are relatively low.

    If the OP is a tinkerer, he/she probably made the right decision, the DROID is going to get to a point where it's very hard to find, and since it's out of production and somewhat "collectable", prices on eBay will probably end up skyrocketing.

    I actually got tired of flashing ROMs on my Droid. You flash one then you find yourself waiting for a better build and it becomes a never ending anxiety for new ROMs. And none of them are/were even as stable as my DX is at stock. Hell, I don't even care about rooting my DX because it's so fast already out of the box.

    Well I'd have a hard time dealing with the slower processor, less app storage and the smaller screen but to each his own. My Droid is still waiting for its debut on Ebay. If the prices are going to go up, I might just wait a little longer.
