While the Original Droid is a two year old device, there is an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM available for the device. CyanogenMod recently stated that they would no longer support the original Droid although XDA member kfazz wouldn’t hear of it and has Android 4.0.3 available for the device. The ROM still has some bugs to work out but as you can see courtesy of talkandroid in the video above it does run quite nice.
How to Install Android 4.0.3 on the Original Droid:
- You must have your device rooted and ClockworkMod Recovery on it.
- Flash the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM via ClockworkMod (Download Link)
- Install the latest Google Apps via gaps (Download Link)
- Congrats you have Android 4.0.3 ICS on the Original Droid!
