#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.
