Motorola Droid Tastes Ice Cream Sandwich

At what point will people stop trying to shoehorn new Android versions onto the original Motorola Droid? We applaud the effort and the if-it’s-possible-we-will-do-it spirit of the Android community, but will there really be any use in having Android 5.0 or maybe even 6.0 on a device that started showing its age when it never received an official Gingerbread port? In any case, here are the early workings of an Android 4.0 build for the classic Android handset (can we call it a classic now?).

This is a pre-alpha release based on Android 4.0.3 and CyanogenMod 9, and many of the features that would make the build useful aren’t quite working. Consider it a proof of concept for the moment, though we are sure the industrious developers behind it will eventually build it up into something a bit more usable. Just remember, folks: there is a reason the Droid isn’t getting these builds officially.
