CyanogenMod started supporting Motorola Droid 2 back in June and now the official nightly builds are available for your flashing pleasure. For those who don’t know, CyanogenMod is a custom 3rd Party Android firmware for select compatible devices with root. The main motive behind getting these ROM on your devices after root is to optimize and enhance user experience. The nightly CM 7 builds for Motorola Droid started emerging on 18th July and now there are more that 35 builds available. Each build carries bug fixes and glitches identified by CM team and users in the last release and this process keep recurring until the nightlies evolve into Release Candidate aka RC status.
In order to install any custom ROM on your Android handset, you need to have root with a working custom recovery. As the Motorola Droid 2 is a bit different from other handsets, so you will need Koush’s Droid 2 Bootstrap recovery installed on your phone in order to flash the CM ROM.
Currently the users and testers who have managed to install this ROM on their Droid 2 handsets are facing boot loop issues. The CM team has been notified of the glitch and we firmly believe that upcoming nightlies will carry a fix for this and other issues.
For the time being, you can head to the official CyanogenMod Droid 2 Nightly Release Portal links given below to grab the latest nightly ROM available and then see the ROM changelog posted here. Note that the global edition nightlies are NOT compatible with the CDMA version, and must only be installed on the Global GSM version of Droid 2.
As clear instructions to install this ROM on your Droid 2 aren’t available until now, and keeping in mind the negative responses from a number of users, we will advise you to read thoroughly through RootzWiki thread posted here.
We will update this post once there is a valid and workable installation method available.
