    I've been using the Fission ROM for my Droid 2 Global ever since it was released - it has always felt like the cleanest, most stable ROM...not to mention it was the only available one for a long time. Luckily, people are working on new ones so we'll hopefully see things pick up here in the D2G community soon.

    Until then, I've been poking around and tweaking things in my copy of Fission. A few of the preinstalled apps in the stock ROM were useful to me, like Windows Media Sync mode, so I added them back. The crackling and popping while playing music was driving me crazy, so I enabled StageFright and fixed the missing libraries so YouTube and camcorder playback still work too. I have also managed to activate 720p video recording. The camera on the D2G seems to be the same one as in the Milestone 2, which supports 720p recording, so I stole some files from that and got it working after a night of tinkering. It's silky smooth at 29fps and produces fairly massive video files with a 10mbit bitrate.

    So I've been thinking, maybe I should figure out how to package up each of these tweaks as update.zip files and release them. I don't really have time to make a whole ROM nor do I want to force my preferences on people by doing that (I like my Dialer buttons to be hot pink with flaming skulls on the sides, so you must too!). I'm just wondering if any of you are still running Fission and whether there'd be any demand for stuff like this. I just blew an entire day and sleepless night rebooting my phone about 80 times while working on this stuff, so I just want to make sure it's not wasted time if I figure out how to release these tweaks in a way that doesn't set anyone's phone on fire.
    How did you fix the missing libraries to fix camcorder playback? Just realized its non functional.

    for me liberty 2.0.1 theres things that i dont like, the keyboard wont lite up or the touch like home bottons wont lite up, and the keyboard is changed like the numbers i really dont like that, anyways i had liberty and the HD still did not work the image was bad and the video crashed, so i wanna know what exactly they did to make it work!! :"(
    For 720p video, just flash Liberty v2.0.1 with romer v7 and camera is ready for you.

    Droid 2 Global w/ CM7 beta

    I used Root Explorer, went into /system folder, press and hold on build.prop and select edit as text. Then scroll down to the media capture line (maybe a little over half way down) and change the 5mp to 8mp. Then select menu and save and exit. Also where it says "stagefright" four times, if it says false, change to true, then of course save and exit. Hope this helps

    Found where you're talking about, made the change, but when i saved and went back to review, it didn't save the changes. Is the text editor in root explorer different than in Astro File manager? I just hate paying, what; $5.

    So Installed Root Explorer, when i try to open in text editor, it says you cannot edit this file because the file system is read-only.

    Because u have to mount the internal storage as r/w to edit then change it back to r/o when you're done. The option to mount as r/w or r/o is at the top of root explorer

    I tried this, and now my camera doesn't take pictures, and my video camera closes when i try to record....are you sure you this is working for you guys? I was thinking while doing all this, The sensor for the camera on the D2G is 5mp, how is it physically possible to get 8mp out of a 5mp camera?

    Mine is working without any issues. I apologize I forgot to mention after you make the changes in the build.prop reboot your phone immediately. Then the changes should work. Let us know if it works.
