OG Droid

Still hanging on to your OG Droid?  Here's some news you're going to love -- Peter Alfonso, of Bugless Beast fame, has released a mostly AOSP build of Gingerbread (Android 2.3.2) for your classic Android phone.  He pulled the code from the master branch of the 2.3.2 tree, added in a few of his (and the community's) favorite modifications, and the original Droid launcher, media, and boot animation.  Make no mistake -- this is 100 percent Droid Does Gingerbread.

Like we saw earlier with the Eris, there's no need to sit back and hear about Gingerbread instead of experiencing it.  Motorola and Verizon may have decided the Droid has reached the end of its life and update cycle, but the Android development community is second to none,and once again delivers.  Now get out that USB cable and head over to Pete's website and get started.  [PeterAlfonso.com]
