Download Original Motorola Droid’s FRK76 Update
By on November 21st, 2011

I have never owned a Motorola Droid, but that phone holds a special place in my heart. Every Android fanboy out there knows what an important place the Original Droid, the ‘Droid’ campaign hold in Android’s monumental success.  Up until last year, the Droid was still one of the most popular Android handset in the United States.

So, when a few days ago rumors popped up on the Internet that Motorola is working on an update for the original Droid, all the Droid owners out there got excited. Many people thought that Verizon and Motorola might have finally decided to roll out Gingerbread update for the Droid.

Sadly, Motorola later confirmed that the update is not what most people are hoping for, and the update just includes some “security patches”. So, if you are still running Android 2.2 on your Original Droid, its time for you to root that device and install an Android 2.3 Gingerbread based ROM on the device.

For Droid owners, who are afraid to flash a custom ROM on their phone, they can download the upcoming OTA update from here, and simply install it from their phone’s recovery menu. If you have a rooted Droid, download the pre-rooted update package and flash it so as to not loose root access.
