This Week In The Life Of DROID: 4/13/2012

We have been patiently waiting to get a look at the Incredible 4G, and it finally happened this week. Some folks may be disappointed as it is no replacement for the Galaxy Nexus, but will still be a formidable addition to the Android lineup on Verizon. Along with that, our beloved Instagram has been bought by Facebook, for who knows what purpose. Don’t mess with my Instagram, Zuck! If you missed any of the week’s important stories, we have highlighted them down below:

On a fun note, our buddy Kovdev made these awesome Andy wallpapers which we have been enjoying and we wanted to make sure you all had a chance to enjoy them too!

Download: Gingerbread Theme For OG DROID

I officially declare myself a theme wh*re and am currently seeking attention. I didn’t think I would jump on the bandwagon for getting my phone to look like Gingerbread as quickly as I did. But, what can I say? The UI is sexy! I asked my good buddy Koveleski of DarkEdge, if he could whip something up for me. He obliged and did a great job. Thanks Dave! I owe you.

He asked which ROM it should be for. Well here’s another shout out to CVPCS and Sniffle on the Sapphire Team. Thanks for making a great DROID ROM! I chose Sapphire 1.1 because of the sheer smoothness that comes along with this ROM. But don’t worry everybody! You will see this shortly on every other ROM for the DROID. I got your backs.

After the jump, I’ll have some instructions and download links for you if you wanna join me down the Gingerbread road. (more…)
