Download: Stock Rooted Gingerbread For The “OG” Droid – GPA15

Our boy Peter Alfonso released an updated Stock Gingerbread ROM for the Original Droid over the weekend. This one is entitled GPA15 and from Pete’s words is supposed to be the best. We can never get enough love for our beloved DROID.

Link to download and instructions after the jump!  

If coming from an earlier build or a different ROM in general, I would recommended a full wipe.

Step 1: Download this file and place on the root of your SD Card. (Changelog)
Step 2: Boot in Clockwork Recovery and wipe both Data and Cache.
Step 3: Using Clockwork, navigate to the .zip file and flash the ROM.

And as we all know, Step 4 is to enjoy! Let us know what you think in the comment section below. He also wants you to note that if you have no sound when making a call, you need to reboot once.

For additional info and Changelog head to Pete’s website!

Cheers Pete!

    Question: This will be my first time rooting a phone. Is it as simple as the steps above? Is there anything else I need to do as well?

    I’m having trouble with the data connection – it keeps dropping from time to time.

    this was so slow!!! ahh..  very glitchy…  i couldnt deal… went back to 2.2.2, overclocked to 800MHz is so snappy

    GPA15 doesn’t support any other languages like Farsi!
    I see the letters, but they are separated! CM7 supported that. Does anyone know how to get this issue resolved ?

    FIrst time flashing my phone with a custom ROM, very easy experience.  Anyone else with an OG droid get unstable and jittery icons when they long press on icons/widgets with 2.3.3 with the OG droid??

    This ROM is perfect – I was running CM 7.0.3 and it was laggy for me.  I have no issues running this with LauncherPro, it’s smooth and totally finished.  Love it!  Only thing I miss are the widget buttons in the Notification bar, but I can deal with it b/c of the great performance.

     Installed yesterday with Pete’s 1Ghz lv kernal and other than exchange sync, my OGD has never been faster with better battery life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I was part of the beta builds and this is still as buggy as they were… Video playback ia awful….very choppy…

    Still rocking PE v.5.0.2 and can’t wait for official v6 even though beta is out I’ll wait.  I tried CM7 before PE and CM just wasn’t cutting it over time.  The one issue I fight with PE is 3G dropping out and I’m sure this will be fixed in v.6. Side not I’m glad to see a stock GB for the OG droid.  I will upgrade when Verizon puts out a stable 4G, frnt/back camera, GB, and most important battery life I can deal with.  So far TB has been the closest but not quite ready for the jump….maybe after all the 4G device launch this summer.

    There were still too many issues with all the GB builds I tried. Exchange losing sync. Camera gettin’ all funky at times. I think 2.2 is the solid choice. The only thing I miss from GB was the text selection. They should have done that a long time ago. Seems silly you can’t select text in Gtalk.

    I upgraded from GPA14 to 15 yesterday and, while I liked GPA14, I love 15. I had issues with PowerAmp and Navigation running at the same time, eventually Nav would stop updating and a minute later I’d be at the boot animation. GPA15’s been more responsive and no issues with running PowerAmp and other apps at the same time any more.
