Liquid Gingerbread 1.0 Released for Original DROID

If you are still rocking that OG DROID and want to get as close to Gingerbread as you possibly can, then I suggest you check out Liquid’s new Gingerbread 1.0 release.  Built  from CM and Google source, this has all of the goodies to make your phone actually feel like it’s running an official Android 2.3 build.  It comes with a stock kernel that can be clocked up to 1.0GHz, but don’t worry, there are plenty of others out there if you really need to go higher.  Liquid ROMs have been some of the best for the DROID since the beginning and it doesn’t appear as if their team is slowing down any time soon.  Definitely give this one a shot.
