DROID 2 Theme Friday: Stock Original DROID

Recently upgraded to Droid 2 from the original and miss that old look?  Then check out the stock D1 theme we have for you courtesy of XDA themer draya1986.  This theme isn’t incredibly intense like BigDX Serenity was this morning, but it brings you back to the old days a little.

Download:  d1_theme_Final.zip


1.  Download the file from above and drop it on your SD card.
2.  You have to be rooted.  (Instructions)
3.  You need to run Koush’s Bootstrap Recovery.
4.  Your phone needs to be deodexed.  (Instructions)
5.  Open the D2 Bootstrap and “boostrap” the recovery.
6.  When that finishes, “reboot recovery.”
7.  Once your phone boots to Clockwork Recovery, scroll down to “backup and restore.”
8.  Choose “backup” to make a clean backup of your phone.
9.  When that finishes choose “install zip from SD card.”
10.  Then “choose zip from SD card” and find the PinkLife.zip file, select it and hit “yes.”
11.   Your phone will apply the theme.  When it finishes, reboot and enjoy!

  • it's worth it to go back to a stock theme on my OG Droid for a while? Thanks

  • i haven't seen many people talking about this, but i was in love with the original unmodified theme of the droid 1.does anyone know if anyone is in the works on bringing a stock theme to the droid 2, along with icon sets and the stock notification bar?

  • lol @ “you need root to go to stock”

    isn't that weird – dammit android get it together, what is the harm in running stock android if you want ?! EVERY PHONE SHOULD HAVE A WAY TO GO TO STOCK ANDROID WITHOUT ROOT

    • CoconutJD

      This. I love stock Android over the blur-y D2. Love the D2 hardware, hate the software.

  • Sn1p3r6992

    Please get this for droid x
    I have been waiting for this since I bought it!!!

  • Is there a way I can get DroidX default theme on my Droid? Really like what Moto did to DX!

  • kervation

    C'mon Kellex…..Waitin' for that OG Droid 1 theme for the grand finale!! The D1 still gets the job done!!

  • cucabueno

    YES! THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! after class activity – root D2 + install D1 Stock Theme!

  • JTE

    what's the name of the widget under the youtube widget? Been seeing it on a lot of screenshots lately but I'm not sure I've heard of it.

    • @infojock

      it's the power widget; you can find that in your menu.

    • wow definitely dont know your way around your droid… how could you miss that? lol just kidding 😛

    • JagoX

      That's on pretty much every Android phone dude…it's a standard Android widget.

  • Michael_NM

    The original Droid has reached retro status, it will live forever as a classic. Very cool!

    • @infojock

      Wow! An eleven month old phone is retro! Go figure. Android has moved with lightning speed!

  • lame… sike, gotta love the OG. but bring on an actual cool droid2 theme. even though im might be sticking with the nextheme on my droid2 for a while.

  • El El Kool J

    Wow.. The OG is coming peoples.. Kellex always gets the OG.. Save the best for last 🙂

  • Theflyingswami

    This is great as Motorola made a mess of default Droid 2 theme. Just look at the Market app: a lime green and bright red color scheme? Why, Moto, why? It's so… ugly, and for what? What possible advantage could replacing the original, plain green, theme produce?

    I have the OG Droid and was jealous of my wife's Droid 2, until I played with it a bit. Blur is just awful.

  • Zfliss

    This is lame. Where is our D1 Theme? who cares about this snoozefest?

    • A lot of people, apparently. Just because you don't care doesn't mean others don't.

    • banditball

      Agree….who here actually wants this? can we go back any further? how bout a MS-DOS theme…lets keep making them plainer for people….blah

      • jahpickney

        lets not go that far back, lets keep i to windows 3.1

        • banditball

          lol…those were good days indeed

  • Wish this was compatible with the DX.

    • zepfloyd

      Seriously! Someone port this so we can have Stock Droid X.

  • jparness

    You know, there's something very clean, uncluttered and functional about this look. Maybe it's worth it to go back to a stock theme on my OG Droid for a while?

    • i used to rock the clean stock look every once a while when i had the OG. it feels good dude, give it a try.

  • jahpickney

    really? this is what we get? more like un-custom theme friday, OG gets no love!?

    • kellex

      Patience my child!

      • Sn1p3r6992
