This is CM9, built from source for the Droid 2 Global.

If you have bug/issue comments, please post them, but this is a dev thread, not general discussion.


Cyanogenmod 9.0.0 for the Droid 2 Global

DISCLAIMER: Install at your own risk. Neither RootzWiki or I are responsible for any damages that arise from installing this rom.



What works:

  • CDMA Radio (including 3G, calls, text)
  • GSM !!
  • Speakerphone
  • SMS/MMS
  • Bluetooth (works for most that have tested)
  • GPS
  • Data usage monitor (specific apps aren't listed)
  • Wifi
  • Sensors
  • Audio
  • DSP Manager
  • Google Talk
  • SD Card
  • Voice Input
  • Hardware Acceleration (no reported issues)
  • Charging (when phone is turned off has some glitches)
  • USB
  • 1% battery increments
What doesn't work:
  • Camera
Known bugs + workarounds:
  • GPS must be turned on and off through settings or notification bar, NOT a 3rd party app like Quick Settings (May be an app issue, rather than flaw with ROM; low priority)
Credit:
CyanogenMod (obviously).
bikedude880 for the D2G-specific files.
JClavin for DPro files and helping me when I needed it.
x13thAngelx for consolidating repos, fixing rotation/sensor issues, the 1% battery hack and helping me when I needed it.

Awesome, thanks for posting this!

Naive question, but I know there is a zip of Droid2Global OEM camera files from the Motorola 608 GB ROM, and that they work very well in the CM7 build. Would these files possibly help fix the camera in your CM9 ROM?

EDIT: Apparently using the CM7 Camerafix can cause bootlooping, do not attempt, link removed

Well, I am with JGlavin. But I don't consider myself a dev for fiddling with files to get a rom to work on our phone and I certainly don't have the experience of others here like bikedude and 13thAngel. I didn't mean that initial comment to mean 'here's a rom... I'm out!', because that's not the case.
BTW, I removed that sentence. It's not really necessary. ;)

Recommend using this gapps. Dhacker posted last night, smaller and /should/ have everything working right.

I'm working on it but I'm based off BD's repo's which are a little screwy.
