OG Motorola Droid

It’s hard to believe that its been three years since the original Motorola Droid hit the market. Whether you love Motorola or not, it’s hard to deny that the Droid was a significant part of the growth of Android during its heyday. Fast-forwarding today and the Droid still manages to carry on, despite being near-archaic in age for a smartphone. While most Droid users have moved on to newer handsets, one developer at XDA has decided to show just how capable the Droid still is, pushing out a complete build of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

So Adobe have chosen not to release the Flash player to Jelly Bean devices and are discontinuing it as a whole. Poor move, frankly. This encompasses everything from the Nexus 7 to the custom Jelly Bean builds released by AOKP and CyanogenMod. However as usual XDA members are here to save the day. If you want to get Flash back on your device so you can watch Flash animations, videos and other content in your browsers, here is all you need to do.

Jelly Bean

XDA-Developers has tracked no less than four Android 4.1-based custom ROMs in its forum threads and, while neither of these is yet fully functional and stable, you can’t possibly say no to all of them. That is if you want to taste some Jelly Bean goodness on your EVO 3D, of course.

Do people care that they have a new follower? Do they need an alert every time someone responds to something they posted? Do they care that there’s new content available? Do they want to know about free trials? Do they want to be pestered for reviews? Are push notifications getting out of hand? How many of the notifications that app developers set up do you really want to receive?
