Team Of Developers Release Stock Gingerbread For Droid Eris, Droid Incredible, And HTC EVO

Stock Gingerbread is smooth, polished, fast, and stable. Happen to have one of these devices? Then definitely try out “OMGB” and “OMFGB“. OMGB is stock Gingerbread for the DROID Eris, DROID Incredible, and the HTC EVO 4G. OMFGB is stock+features for each of the aforementioned devices. After the jump, we’ll have download links and instructions.

Download and Flash in your devices custom Recovery. Make sure to make a backup first:

DROID Eris –  OMGB | OMFGB

DROID Incredible –  OMGB | OMFGB <– *1.3.0 Pre-Release Exclusive*

HTC EVO –  OMGB | OMFGB <– *1.3.0 Pre-Release Exclusive*

Note: With each of these ROM’s you will need to also install their respective *Google Apps Zip* to have access to your usual applications list. So be sure to download and install this after you flash the ROM.zip

You shouldn’t run into any issues, but if you do please leave a comment and let us know. We got a great community here and would also love to hear some feedback on the ROMs. They have also set up a great IRC Channel for Live Support – Don’t be afraid to holler at them.

If you like the ROM, please let the great developers know by following them on Twitter. They’re a great set of gentleman. There’s r2doesincdavidjr621, xoomdev, and linuxmotion. Good job, guys. Keep it up for the community. From looking at the downloads section, we can see there’s possibly a Thunderbolt ROM on the way? Yes, please.

Cheers IRONMatt!

    Loaded OMGB for Eris and am now stuck at load screen (Andoid logo shimmering on screen). What did I do wrong?

  • Gschrod

    “OMFGB is stock+features for each of the aforementioned devices.”  (what are the “features”?)

  • Transplanted

    I can’t seem to get gapps.zip to work. I just installed OMFGB on my Eris, and I get a installation error when I try to flash the zip. Am I doing this wrong? I’ve never had to do a gapp.zip before. Thanks for the help, the rom installed clean and looks really nice. I hope I can get everythign running, I really wanna use it for a while. Thanks in advance!

    • Transplanted

      My bad, I got the one off of this page. It’s an older version, you should for sure get the one from http://r2doesinc.bitsurge.net/omgb/ , as it’ll be the newer one, with everything you need.

  • Tookee

    hi, i’ve rooted my phone for the first time and its installing gingerbread. how long does it take. i’m curious if i’ve done it right. tks.

  • Big E

    I flashed the OMFGB on my eris, but was unable to install the Google Apps Zip. I have it downloaded, but don’t know how to install. Any help would be appreciated. I’m new to this. Thanks

  • SlowBoot

    How long does it take to boot afterwards?

  • Marc331

    Just loaded this onto my Eris and love it so far. I can’t seem to get it to sync to my AOL account though.  Any suggestions.

  • G3orge612

    I have an Eris and flashed OFMGB. It was running great then yesterday it started getting real buggy.What can I do to fix it?

  • Nmemon786

    do you have to root before gingerbread ROM?

  • Elliottfrankex

    I tried to flash the ROM for the incredible, backup went fine, then the phone rebooted and I am stuck at the white incredible screen, can I pull the battery and boot into recovery, or what should I do?

  • Spc Hicks09

    This post is lame! Stock GB roms have been out for wuite some time now and the fact that most devs @ XDA and Droid Forums get no recognition here is absurd. Been running different GB roms on my Eris AND Droid 1 since some time last year! I’ve even made my own GB Rom for the Eris, these guys are way behind on the dev learning curve.

  • Granted

    Yeah have fun with gingerbread maybe it will rape your phone like it did with my droid x!

    • KB Smoka

      The problem is you have a droid x

  • JagoX

    Anyone had any experience with this teams ROM creations? I’ve put CM7 (2.3.3) & MIUI (2.3.4) on my wife’s Dinc (and on a friend’s Dinc) but after a few weeks GB starts freaking out with FCs happening to just about everything. Doing some research & posting on XDA, this seems to be a problem within GB itself but only happens on certain phones and even then it doesn’t happen to everyone. The only real way I’ve found to fix it is to clear out the cache partition & Dalvik cache 3-4 times in CWM, reboot and then let the phone sit for a bit.

    Anyone experiencing this? I may give this ROM a chance though…just to see what happens.

    • BP

      I’ve been using this rom on my Incredible since Friday. I have not experienced a single bug or issue. It’s fast, smooth, and stable.

      • JagoX

        Give it some time because the problems I was seeing wouldn’t happen for a few weeks & attempting to “fix permissions” didn’t fix anything either.

  • Terry

    Ok, so before installing this I was running CM Froyo on my Eris, which was ok at times but mostly awful, it had way too many bugs, would freeze & force close alot, which got really annoying after awhile and I have been absolutely hating this phone for a long time. However, after installing this on Fri Nite, I am throughly impressed & this software is a godsend. It is very fast considering that it is running on the Eris. All the apps I use run very smoothly, the internet is noticeably faster, WiFi works great, calls quality is great, screen transitions are much smoother and overall everything is much more reliable, keeping my fingers crossed but I haven’t had an app force close on me yet. Adding this to my Eris has made it a phone I actually like again, unlike about 48hrs ago when I wanted to smash the shit out of it, but adding the Stock Gingerbread has & seemingly will make it much more bearable for me to get through this year, until I can upgrade to one of the dual core bad boys on the horizon. I used to think that my Eris sucked because the hardware made it so slow, however, now adding this amazing software to my phone makes me realize what good software can do for any phone. I definitely recommend anyone who has the Eris, Incredible or Evo to switch over to this, even though I’ve only had it for about a day and a half now, it has made a huge difference on my Eris.

  • Adrianbarela

    Would someone direct me to a “how to” to get my droid inc back to stock 2.2 after running this ROM.

    • BP

      If you did a NAND backup before flashing, which you always should, then just boot back into clockwork mod and do a restore. Otherwise, download a stock rom and flash it the same way you did this one.

  • Olsen K30

    i am a noob at rooting, and roms, so i put this on my phone, and i am running gingerbread but now i can’t find the market or anywhere to dl it from, is this normal or did i screw somethig up?

    • Anonymous

      It says in the post to download the google apps zip, the market should be one of them. 

  • I want stock GB on my Droid X

  • Ryn_wllmsn

    i got my droid incredible from best buy. will it void the warranty or anything?

    • Yup.

    • JagoX

      More like “void the warranty”…you can reverse the entire rooting process, revert back to a stock *official* radio & go back to the “fresh out of the box” ROM with the RUU.

  • DJyoSNOW

    I’ve been using Rom: Evervolv (gingerbread) for a good while now on my Incredible!!!!! (RECOMMENDED)

  • How is this running on the Eris guys? I put CM7 on my sisters phone, but it is buggy, is this one any better?

  • Thawes1024

    Is this ever going to be an OTA update? I have a stock DINC and have never messed around with the ROMs and don’t want to screw my phone up.

    • Creliandobi

      yes, Dinc is supposed to get GB (by end of summer). this version, though, is vanilla android vs. the OTA from VZW/HTC with Sense UI added in.

  • Kkurasch

    tried to flash google apps but didn’t work 

  • Kkurasch

    Hey i just flashed the rom and I don’t have anything! No android marketplace???? No rom manager? I can’t even sign into my gmail! Help!!!!!

    • Creliandobi

      flash the Google Apps zip (Gapps) linked in the post and all of that will appear

    WTF Moto! Where’s my OG Droid Gingerbread?!?!

    • Manny

      http://www.peteralfonso.com/
      GPA15. I believe it was mentioned on this website not so long ago.

    • Check out the stock GB ROM for the OG Droid by Peter Alfonso (www.peteralfonso.com).  The current version is based on 2.3.3 and he is working on a 2.3.4 version.

  • is it just like if we had a Nexus? i had the R2DoesInc OMFGB a while back on my incredible, and it wasn’t smooth.

    • BP

      I’ve only been running it for a day, but its smooth and fast. I’m getting better battery life as well.

      • yea maybe they updated it. i had it like 6 months ago and it was good, just not smooth, and some things were broken.

        • jason sckupakus

          try the newest version before you post that its not smooth.

  • DreadHubris

    ADW Launcher completely crashed v.1.3.  Or else it seemed to have.  Facebook for android also refuses to function, and tehhaxxor keyboard repetitively crashed until I switched over to the android GB keyboard.  

    Back to my backup, now, but I’m trying to figure out what I could have possibly done to make this rom that has been so highly appraised such a nightmare.  

    • dreadhubris

      Oh, by “Completely crashed”, I mean, I d/l’ed adw launcher, exited market, and the option screen came up to choose “Launcher” or “ADW Launcher EX”, I clicked ADW, and the phone completely froze.  I waited about ten minutes, tried numerous things with no actions whatsoever, and then pulled the battery.  Upon restart, it got to the OMFGB splash screen and froze there.  

  • Hoping this works…. Really hate my phone… maybe this will make me love it more?

  • Isn’t the EVO in the process of getting an OTA of 2.3 right now though? What is the difference between the OMGB here and the OTA that you can now “pull” from sprint? Here’s the link I read this from:

    http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/03/happy-evo-4g-owners-get-gingerbread-update-right-on-schedule/

    • it’s stock gingerbread. the OTA is Gingerbread with the Sense UI

  • The eris is going to live for ever !!! icecream smmmich will be next !!!!!!

  • Bmoss427

    What’s the easiest way to root the eris?

  • SprottheDestroyer

    Thanks guys for all your hard work! And for the hint of a OGD rom with Gingerbread! You guys rock!

  • putting this on my little brothers old droid eris

  • So what you’re saying is, thanks to these custom ROMs, even the Eris gets Gingerbread before HTC releases the official GB update for the Thunderbolt.

    I guess it’s karma. After a week of me bragging about my LTE speeds, now my buddy gets to brag that he’s got GB on his Droid X.

    • Sucks don’t it? 😛

    • How many times did you charge your thunder bolt to complete that post ?

      • I was worried about getting the Thunderbolt, since battery life seemed to be the biggest complaint about it, but I haven’t had too much trouble with it.  Not as good as the Incredible (I could go 36 hours on it), but I don’t have any difficulty taking off the charger in the morning and lasting until I go to bed at night.

    • everything will get GB before the manufacturer can get it out, as long as the bootloader is unlocked 🙂

  • BP

    Been playing around with this for a couple of hours. Very fast and smooth. I’m loving it.

  • ok new to this …. i have not done this yet.. if i do this .. do i have to reinstall everything and reset all my launchers.. i am running a Droid Inc.. with sens.. and launcher pro.. and launcher 7.. also what do i have to do to do this..    thank you sorry for being such a noob..

  • I may need to try this on my little Eris.  This guy has been with me through it all (well, the last couple years), and it’s still chugging along.  I’m still hoping to get one of those shiny new phones when Verizon releases something that definitively piques my interest…

  • +1 for the non over-dramatic ROM names. lol

    • I call this ROM – The 8 Legged Leviathan of Naples!

      • lawlz.. & +1 for the people of this site that come down and comment with us common folk. lol

  • Rj3mendez

    Nice, where can I find one for my thunderbolt? Thanks for everything.

  • JB

    For the Droid Incredible does it have the TV out function? Im running the Redemption Rom because it’s the only one I can find with TV out.

    • evileclipse

      No it does not. That is proprietary code owned by HTC that only works on sense based roms. I’m not sure about which roms , just know it will not work with an AOSP rom.

  • Creliandobi

    just downloaded & flashed—working great w/ Gapps

    awesome work.

    can’t wait for the Thunderbolt version!

  • gene

    just flashed after running miui for the last couple months on my incredible, wanted to see what stock gingerbread was like.  everything runs really fast and smoothly except the transition between the home screens is a little slower than im used. was wondering if anyone knew if this was built in or if there was a setting to make it more snappy. Thanks!

    • jaysckap

      witch build are you using?

      • gene

        OMFGB….its not like it looks like its lagging or anything just that i wish it would go faster and not bounce as much when it goes to the next screen

        • jaysckap

          Goto setting> god mode> transition animations

          • gene

            Tried that already, that changes the speed between switching between different actual screens like for instance between settings menu’s….I’m talking about the left and right animations between the home screens, it’s really not that big of a deal i just noticed it was a little slower and the little bounce animation is slightly annoying but that might be just the way it is, probably just personal preference

  • Stephen D

    One of the devs is just about to get a Fascinate, and if they can get a working ROM like this I’d be very happy.

    • i already have a fasinate, one of the others is getting one too! we may / may not have a D1 rom also

      • Stephen D

        Yeah, he got one from camdog on xda: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1098223&page=3 Since JT is on the verge of getting CM7 working, it shouldn’t be too hard to get the OMFG and OMFGB roms, at least I hope.

  • d

    Why can they make stock GB for the Eris but not a stock rom for DX?

    • MikeyMike

      dude, the droid x just got one.

  • Collin

    I hate to be the a**hole here, but I’m going to do it anyway.

    It’s AOSP, not ASOP. We’re not telling fables here, its the Android Open Source Project.

    • Collin

      I probably didn’t make this very clear, this post is about multiple comments, not the original post.

      • Anonymous

        just to let you know…it was AESOP that told fables…not asop

        • jaysckap

          AESOP?

          • Anonymous

            you know…as in aesop’s fables…the tortoise and the hare, the crow and the water jug…etc. etc.

        • but it sounds the same, so it must be the same!

        • Collin

          Yep, I realize that. =P

          I was relying on the intelligence of people like you to connect the two through the use of homonyms.

  • Well i have been a huge android fan since the begining back in 09. i got the droid eris  way back then and i still have it. it does just as good of a job as any other phone. it might not have a dual core or even a 1 ghz processor but i have it. You know you are a die hard fan when you have one of the oldest and crappiest phones around and still love the system. so to all of you hating on the eris because it gets gingerbread and yours doesnt then you deserve it haha. I just downloaded it (had the cyanogenmod first) and its more stable and has better features. Im loving it. 

    • Chris Ferrara

      I actually almost got that phone but then my boss got me a blackberry so I waited until Droid X and now we both have gingerbread!

      • black berry? that was outdated back in 09. lol. i never saw the goodness of a blackberry.

  • I’d love to have a true ASOP build for my OG Droid.  

    This is fantastic to hear, good work to all the devs out there.  

    • You can get that from http://www.peteralfonso.com/.  His ROM’s and kernels are top-notch!

  • Anonymous

    I don’t have any of the above mentioned devices…anymore:) But, just knowing that you guys put in the time and effort to make it happen is awesome. This is what makes “Our Community” so good. So, I tip my hat and raise my Jagermeister in celebration to ya’ll and to all the Androiddicts out there rockin the “Dandy Andy” on your handsets.. Live it, Love it,, Android-Life…….Droooooooiiiid!!!!!!! Bring on the ThunderBread;)

        Okay. Thanks. Any suggestions for higher overclocking?

  • OMGB has been my daily driver for a while now, I left CM for it.. CM7 is great don’t get me wrong I just wanted the purest Android I could get, thinking of trying OMFGB though and see what it has to offer. Like r2doesinc said, if I don’t like it I just restore. 😀

    • BP

      Thanks. I appreciate the feedback.

    I’m thinking about doing this right now. Anybody tried it yet?

        R2 any plans on coming out with a newer/bug fixer release for the DInc?

        • jaysckap

          1.2 runs great and 1.3 is being worked on as we speak with lots of nice treats, should be out soon. if you follow R2 on twitter he posts pre-releases every so often.

  • Anonymous

    what is OM vs OMB? no comprendo
    edit: I can’t read.

  • how do you root aDInc with the newest update?

  • R2doesinc

    It the same concept as CM. We talk AOSP and mod it to our liking. We have two builds, an all stock build and a custom build filled with our custom mods. Remappable hotseats in stock launcher two, different lockscreen music controls, etc. Our last releases are based on 2.3.3, but we are working on updating them to 2.3.4 and have released a few tests builds already. Try us out, and if you don’t like it, just go back to your backup. 🙂

  • What would the difference between this and CM7 with the stock launcher be?

    • jaysckap

      CM7 uses ADW launcher. the stock launcher is well stock GB

        • sister eris theif

          literally exactly what i’m doing now

  • So… it’s like CyanogenMod… but with less community additions and more Google bugs?

  • I like how they choose to release Gingerbread for the POS Eris instead of something like, say, the Droid 2 -.-

    • tanknspank

      I love how you sit here and complain instead of doing it, say, yourself?

      AOSP on a locked device is complicated. So much that one of the better developers of the community, cvpcs, is having troubles with it on the Droid X. It’s not as simple as some might believe.

    • everyone and their brother knows that you can’t do asop on the Droid 2 because of the bootloader

    • Steelertown7

      If you want something done right, do it yourself.

      Or go buy an Eris. 

    • Do you want to buy them a Droid 2 to support?

  • Yourmom

    So how does this differ from cyanogenmod, less features and more bugs?

    • More or less. The name of the game is stability.

    • its  different set of feauture, and actually less bugs. We and CM follow the same princeple, take AOSP source and modify it to our liking. we have a different set of mods and tweaks that we built . try it out, whats the worst that happens, you waste 15 mins restoring your backup?

      • Since it’s a aosp im guessing there’s no 720p on the inc? Do you plan on adding it once htc releases the gingerbread update?

      • Anonymous

        what is the highest overclock for the eris on OMFGB rom?
