Android 2.1 Gets Ported to Motorola Droid (Video)

Since we’ve just seen Android 2.1 in action on the very first Google Phone, aka the Nexus One, it was only a matter of time till developers pulled a ROM from the hat and emulated it on other devices. For now, this is the case of Moto Droid, running Android 2.1 as you can see for yourself in the pics below.

The rip is far from perfect and you can find brief DIY instructions regarding the process on Sholes.info, although it seems the guide might not there, being replaced with an advice to wait for a proper ROM instead. It’s all about the file system permissions, that can make or break your phone.

The initial image file is there to mess with, in case you want to take chances. As shown in the video below, Droid is able to show Nexus One’s boot animation, but there’s more to it than that.
