What is the first version of Android you used?
Yeah, that's what I had. They had a Gingerbread (2.3) beta, but it didn't pass testing and wasn't released. I had gingerbread via Cynaogen at some point to fool around after I stopped using it.I think it was froyo 2.2 on my LG Optimus V, good phone lots of tinkering and community support at the time
That was my first experience with Android (and smartphones in general). I remember me and a buddy flashing custom ROMs on that thing with beads of sweat running down our faces trying not to brick the thing (as you had to time it just right), but it was really exciting and fun at the time. I flashed ROM updates to that phone until it literally wouldn't turn on anymore. Got way more mileage out of it than I should have. Fun times.Pre-froyo on an HTC Droid incredible (first release with a single core 1ghz snapdragon). That was my first phone after having used windows mobile for many years.
