    If there were ever a case for rooting and custom roms this would be it. 6 years ago the first ever Droid was released and today the development community continues to push out roms for the device! You can still run the latest and greatest version of Android on this device. Who knows how many people still own this device. I imagine there are many of these sitting in drawers, but for those still hanging on to this device for dear life you can now run Lollipop on the OG Droid!

    Developer "ChevyCam94" has just released his update to the Steel Droid rom series on the OG Droid. This will update your device to Lollipop. There are a few extras included here as well. This includes all stagefright vuln patches, memory leak fixes, wifi connection issues fixes, tweaks for speed and performance improvements, new theme for settings, 12hour clock added, and battery tweaks have been included.

    If you would like to give this Rom a try you will need a custom recovery installed. The install is pretty straight forward the only thing that is a little bit different in this install method is the addition of booting into the rom once then returning to recovery to wipe data again. Grab the rom from the link below.

    Just want to be clear here. This is NOT Lollipop source. The is Gingerbread 2.3.7 with a Lollipop THEME. There are no drivers available for post-ICS source for the D1.

    and developing those drivers would be nearly impossible and not worth it.

    pretty awesome to see there's still work being done on this device.

    Nope! There is STILL a lot of future potential for this phone. Even though GB is the last version of Android it will ever get (without any bugs), there is STILL a lot of improvement that can be done. Im still getting quite a few downloads. My last v13.x release is still the #1 downloaded file from my web server. Im working on the next version right now. More theming, more Dalvik optimizations, and some other app updates.

    Also, if theres enough interest, I will start buying damaged/broken Droid 1's, rebuilding them, flashing them with a custom recovery, and selling them out to those who want to get into development. This is probably the best phone to begin learning on. Not expensive if you break it. Stable source thats easy to understand. Anyone interested?
