Jelly Bean Ported to OG DROID, This Thing Won’t Die

Developers continue to pump out love for the “OG” Droid. Recently, a developer over at XDA decided to go all out and push a complete build of Jelly Bean to Motorola’s most popular Android device. According to a reader that has flashed the build, it seems to be a very functional ROM and only the camera tends to be slow or non-working. If you happen to have your unlocked and rooted Droid sitting around, then why not show it some love with the newest version of Android?

    The fact that this happened brings a smile to my face. I’m proud to say I used to use that phone. :-)

    Great to see the Droid marching on. But come on, why do these people keep using auto focus when taking video. Ruins that whole video.

    I’m getting a boot loop so I’ll just have to look further into it. Its just fun to keep doing things with the phone that got me into android.

    I still have my OG Droid, it probably deserves a sealed glass case by now! Hands down, it was one of the best things to ever happen in the mobile market.

  • Russ Thacher

    I love this. I charging my OG Droid now!

  • David Hayden

    My Droid can now say it has seen five iterations of the Android operating system.

  • Clifford Gadd

    Why were there ads in the camera app?

  • Michael Lewis

    I’m going to have to fish out my OG droid and give this ROM a whirl. Wow. Awesome to see that this phone is still getting love :)

    Pretty cool but without Google Now it isn’t something I would bring out the OG for. Am I the only one who did’t completely f up there OG, seems like everyone talks as if the destroyed the thing from daily use.

      I still have mine and it works great.

    The OG droid and the nexus 1 are by far the greatest android devices ever made…they don’t make em like this anymore

  • TheZilch

    Long live the King! Huzzah!

  • Hitekdroid

    I just upgraded from my og to name sgs3, and it was a sad day. If they remade it with the same design, 4g, 4.3inch screen, and as thin as possible, I would get another one.

      Kind of like the Motorola Photon Q with unlockable bootloader. Sadly its only on Sprint.
