#TBT: Hands-on Overview of Android 2.2 on the “OG” DROID

#TBT allows us to dive into old content, reflecting on our roots as Android enthusiasts. Looking through our old videos, we must re-share the two videos below. These were our first hands-on videos with Android 2.2 “Froyo” on the original Motorola DROID on Verizon.

Words like “overclocked” and “ROM” are tossed around, which is somewhat comical considering we don’t exactly discuss that type of Android hackery anymore. Thanks to SetCPU (which used to be all the rage back in the day), this “OG” DROID was clocked at a whopping 900MHz, and even with that, you can still see how stuttery and jankified the OS was.

We sure have come a long way.

Please, share any fond memories you might have with overclocking and custom ROMs below in the comments.
