All is well, BUT I can not flash clockwork recovery. I couldn't before, so it isn't anything new. I seen someone say they could. Anything I can do to get CWM Recovery to work??

Are you using the Droid2 Bootstrap Recovery app from the market? ROM Manager won't do the trick.

Success! I followed every step and I successfully got my phone root and rommed! There was a fix little problems but in the end everything went fine. Here are some screen shots of me being on CM9!

No, it won't. This is for the DROID2 GLOBAL only.

I am a bit confused. Based on what I have read I thought it would not be possible to install any other ROM, once you are on .629. Is this no longer true?

It is impossible to flash an older stock Motorola firmware over 4.5.629, but all that is needed to install third-party ROMs on the D2G is a working copy of ClockworkMod Recovery (2nd-init version).

If you can gain root privileges, you can use Droid 2 Recovery Bootstrap to install CWR. Ergo, it has been possible to install any third-party ROM over 4.5.629 for as long as this thread has existed.

Thanks for your reply, Jab!

I must be doing something wrong then. I tried twice to flash to CM7.2-stable by following the steps per ROM Mgr method (bottom part of page). In the process, my phone gets stuck during a reboot with the red Motorola logo. Afterwards it is bricked. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Mind me repeating the same shit for the 55th time?

Official Cyanogenmod builds are made for 2.4.x.

Official Cyanogenmod builds will not run on 4.5.x.

Thanks for reading a whole lot of topics describing this issue beforehand.
