We have confirmation of CyanogenMod 7 ROM being ported to the Motorola Droid 2. Earlier we had covered a guide on installing CyanogenMod 7 on the Droid X and that has set the wheels in motion for future CyanogenMod releases for additional Motorola devices. More on the CyanogenMod ROM for the Droid 2 after the break.
Before we proceed, this ROM is suggested for developers only, or ambitious geeks. It is instable and full of bugs that may make you cry. So you have been warned. Other then that, the ROM is Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread based, and incase you didn’t know that already, you’re a noob that has treaded into some dangerous waters. Not scared, well then, let’s move onto the installation.
Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.
