    Since it looks like a stable version of CM7 is a ways off for the original Droid, what are the prospects for an update of CM6 with the latest Froyo (2.2.2) kernal and updated Google Apps?

    I'd settle for an updated Google Apps package at this point... the Market app is MONTHS old.:motdroidhoriz:

    CM6 development is sort of old news now. Why not try the release candidates for CM7? RC4 is excellently stable.

    I like stability above all else. I've read too many issues regarding the Gingerbread kernal on the original Droid; primarily memory management, tethering, and WiFi/3G issues. I'd rather stick with what I know works. It sounds like there are many efforts to attack these issues with Gingerbread ROMs on the original Droid, and I can be patient. It's just that I also know there is an SMS vulnerability with 2.2.1 Froyo that is patched with 2.2.2.

    I would go with a new phone then rather than wait for someone to work on older firmware for a EOL phone.

    Not trying to be a dick, honestly, just see a lot of developers moving away from the D1.

    Sadly it is my current phone, but my upgrade is up in a few months.

    Very true, this became painfully clear this week.

    I am running froyo on my D1 till the end of the summer when I can upgrade (even then I dono if i will cause it'll still cost me a bundle uhg)

    It is understood that old technology gets left in the dust, but I hate to see people still working on the D1 and releasing gingerbread roms that dont work well... Ohs Wells

    ChevyNo1's 5.2 has been by far the most stable GB rom out right now for Droid 1. IMO, but I'm not alone.

    CM6 will most likely never be upgraded to 2.2.2. To me CM7 works fine. The tethering should be fixed now. I am going to try to do some memory optimizations to my cm7 build to see if I can the memory management better. Wifi should also work fine with the stock kernel. The only real issue remaining is the 3g one which CVPCS is working on.

    My trick will be to find an Android phone I like with an unlocked boot loader, and a slide-out keyboard... until then, I'm sticking with my D1.

    If I may suggest you look at this post in

    ... for really great memory management scripts that I've been working on for weeks.

    If I were to go back to a Froyo ROM right now, I would hands down go right back to UD 2.5. Sometimes I wonder if I should just go back to it right now.
