OG Droid Gets Gingerbread


Another device has received some Gingerbread love and it's the one that started the madness: the OG Motorola Droid.  It has multiple ROMs available and people are impressed by the performance they are receiving. There are options that include Google Apps and some without.

As always, remember that modding your phone could lead to bricking it, so don't proceed unless you know what you're doing.
