Gingerbread on my 1st gen Droid

My first leap into the Android world was the 1st generation Motorola Droid.  When it was released, it was THE droid to have.  I still love the phone, but when my contract was up, I couldn’t resist the call to a newer/better phone.

Because I’m cheap, I upgraded to an HTC Incredible (it was free at BestBuy).  A decent phone in it’s own right, but it’s last year’s technology.  Even though, it’s a good bit above my old trusty droid.  I wanted to hold out for Thunderbolt or Bionic, but it just didn’t happen that way.

So, now that I’ve got this shiny new phone, I can be geeky with the old one.  Thanks to the folks over at Ultimate Droid, I’ve got Gingerbread up and running on the old droid.  I must say, it’s amazing!  It’s almost making me have a few second thoughts about my upgrade.

Perhaps it’s time for me to consider rooting my main phone?

    Well, first keep in mind that this process could kill your phone … proceed at your own risk. I will not take any responsibility for a dead phone :)

    And, it will void any warranty/insurance/protection plan you may have. With that said, here’s exactly what I did:

    There’s also lots of good information in the forums at Ultimate Droid.

    Again, and I can’t stress this enough, if you do this wrong you will brick your phone (and I will be of no help then).

    Have fun!!! :)
