I retired my Original Droid. What non-telephone ROMS are out there to repurpose it?

    Sorry to drag this back up, but Im looking to do something similar, yet different. I want to use my OG Droid and car dock as a GPS/Music Player, and would like to similarly install a mimimal ROM that clears out the celular software.

    Just throw that puppy in airplane mode. I get 6 hours of playback for 3 days in a row on my now 2 year old battery.

    You would just need a GPS app with preloaded maps (like loaded to SD).

    Sent from the best 3G phone on Verizon.

    Yea, Im actually testing that way now, was just hoping that there might be a purpose built ROM out there. Found that WiFi still works in airplane mode, and power is a non-issue in the car dock as I have multiple power points, so the plan for GPS is Google maps/navigation via tether to the D4. dancedroid

    I believe you could also dial #*#*4636*#*# and disable the cell radio.
