So... A buddy of mine at work got a replacement OG Droid because his was having issues, he asked me to root it and ended up giving me his old one. The far right side of the screen is unresponsive to touch in portrait (and the top in landscape with keyboard open) and it is a bit old but it still stays stable at 1000mhz+ so far on the ChevyNo1 kernels. Now, I don't plan on activating it as my main phone because of a few of the underlying issues the phone currently has (and the fact that I'm currently working on ROMs for my main phone, the LG Ally), but I would love to have an extra android device around the house/at work to play with and use via wifi.

I guess what I'm asking is, what cool things should I do to it/with it? And can you guys recommend some good ROMs/kernels for me to play around with? I don't really care if they are Gingerbread or Froyo, I just want to go crazy flashing ROMs on this thing since I won't really care if I brick it :)

Thanks a bunch in advance :)

Try Sourcery 2.2, it's froyo based but man is it slick, not to mention the amount of customization you can do. It comes with several kernals. The ROM is not officially supported anymore but if you have questions they will help you out. I put this on my wife's droid because it was on its last leg, and now its like a new phone. Here is the link http://www.droidforums.net/forum/sourcery-rom/128957-sourcery-rom-2-2-a.html enjoy :)

Thanks man, will check it out for sure. Currently running Simply Stunning 5.5 (Unthemed) with my custom CyanbreadRemix theme and the ChevyNo1 LV 1.1ghz kernel right now and it seems pretty smooth for a GB rom, only problem is it seems to use a whole lot of RAM even when I'm just doin nothing lol.

The wifes droid did not like Gingerbread at all, i tried all of them before deciding on a froyo base lol. The phone was doing the same thing you were describing, doing absolutely nothing was eating up the ram 0__0

Some Droids do not like Gingerbread, I have Gingerbread on my Droid, it's a clean version of it.. Bugless Beast is one of the best Gingerbread ROMs I've experienced so far. I had my Droid for two years before moving on and the Droid will forever be one of my favorite phones. I've flashed just about every ROM on it and wasted no time hacking into it.
