    Will the wonders that developers are able to accomplish ever cease?!? I certainly intend that it never does. Apparently, some ingenious folks were able to shoe-horn Jelly Bean onto the original Motorola Droid. Obviously, there are still several bugs and it will need a ton of testing, but this is pretty amazing. It's like cramming Windows 7 onto a 486 DX2-66, or like shoving the engine from a Nissan GTR into a Model-T Ford, or like putting miracle whip on a mud-pie...

    Okay, that last one made no sense at all, but you get the idea. :p

    Hmmm....If this can be stable and smooth some day I might bust out the OG and play.

    Did the OG ever get a "smooth" ICS?

    Last I checked before upgrading everything worked except the camera and a couple other things but it was smooth.

    Miracle Whip....on mud pie...?? That's like ketchup on an Ice Cream Sandwich! *groan*

    I think it's funny that someone would take time to stuff Jelly Bean into an OG Droid, yet we still don't have a stable ICS for the TBolt (even after the leaked "official" ROM). I have this odd feeling I'll be switching back to my ancient Droid and parking the TBolt for awhile! OK, maybe not, but...you know what I mean. ;)

    very cool to see the OG sporting some jelly bean, might have to boot that bad boy up and give this a shot since it isn't really doing much on the shelf next to me.
