Android 2.3.5 Released for the Original DROID by Peter Alfonso

Our buddy Pete Alfonso continues to work his magic to make the original DROID one of the most current Android devices on the planet.  Today, he’s releasing Android 2.3.5 through DL so that OG owners can have it before almost any other smartphone.  There aren’t a lot of spicy changes, but there are new GApps, an updated Search app that is not in the market yet, Gtalk with video and the new market.

Download:  generic_sholes-ota-eng-pete.zip

As usual, download the file from above and drop it on your SD card.  After that, boot into recovery through ROM Manager, make a backup and then “install zip from sd card.”

And just in case he updates it, you’ll want to check this folder.  Here is his github.

Be sure to keep up with Pete at his site and on Twitter!

    This may be a dumb question, but I asked last time Pete had a release for the OG and didn’t get an answer, does this image include root access?

    The OG Droid is like the godfather of Android phones. If only the Bionic was unlocked, it could possibly have the success of the OG.

    This is the first released ROM from his 2.3.5 testing, and the pattern has been that he puts out around 10 to 15 before creating that final GPA ROM. When you flash this, you are officially beta testing.

    Verizon really needs a new unlocked (or at least Google experience with
    the latest version of Android on it) phone in its lineup.

    I loved PE5.2, but had to drop due to memory problems. I actually stayed on PE4.2 for more than a month – that’s a loooong time. I flashed PE6.6 and am loving it so far. I kept a GPA16 backup so I might give this a whirl.

    Everyone, keep in mind this is not an official GPA ROM, but rather part of Pete’s beta program. This is the first released ROM from his 2.3.5 testing, and the pattern has been that he puts out around 10 to 15 before creating that final GPA ROM.
