    More info on the D2 please!

    Hey all, I am picking up a Droid 2 today just for something different and I am going to root it like the rest of my phones and try out some roms. What would you all recommend? I've heard about Apex and Liberty and I'm looking for battery life, I also like the blur look. What process would you recommend I use to root it and I keep reading about SBF but I'm not sure what it is really so info on that would be a big help too! Thanks in advance!

    Also I keep reading how you can use Droid X roms with D2, are there only certain ones or do they all work?

    Good deal bro! The D2 is a bad arse machine as you will see! I have a few devices and this one is my fastest and best screen imo....and fast! Lol So, once you get it..make sure its updated..if your on gingerbread ota already when you get it, then its ready for you.Just go and google Petes one click D3 root...Yes D3...It will work simply with one click....then if you want to see a blurish experience I would agree with Apex...also Vortex but its all your choice...youtube both and review...Honestly Liquids 3.0 and 3.1 are awesome too but are 2nd Init builds...If you like speed and themes out the arse, go with Cm7! Gb...its the best out there..but liberty gives you more choices with blur options...read up and if you need anything..pop the pm or just ask here!!! Peace!

    Thanks for the info! I've had the Incredible and the Fascinate and rooted my parents Incredible, Eris, and X and it is so addicting! I've tried CM7 on all of them and I like it of course but I really like the Blur look, at least for now. I'm probably gonna try Apex and Vortex first but could you tell me what it means to SBF or what that is? Thanks again!

    I actually just switched from the Incredible yesterday and I rooted the D2 using these instructions from Droid-Life last night. How to: Root the DROID2, DROIDX2, DROIDX, and DROID3 Running Gingerbread – Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog It was easy as hell and took only like 5 mins from the start. Make sure you get D2 Bootstrap from the market and then flash clockwork from Rom Manager because that is the only way I was able to boot into recovery... There might be an easier way to do this but I haven't read up that much yet.

    I threw on the latest liberty and am currently sitting pretty at 64% after having my screen on for an hour and a half and an hour or so of music,making some calls and texts. To say the least I'm enjoying my first day with this phone.

    Thanks for the respons Pete! I'm downloading the update now then trying it. What is the Bootstrap for again? I'm gonna try the exact way you just said except I'm gonna try the latest Liquid Smooth rom instead.

    As far as I know, bootstrap is the only way to get access to recovery mode because the bootloader is locked... (you and I both just came from the Inc. Its taking some getting used to not being able to falsh different kernels, I miss fastcharging with the incredikernel already haha) But all I did was search bootstrap droid 2 in the market, download it, opened it and clicked bootstrap recovery. The went into rommanager, flashed the latest version of clockwork and then booted into recovery mode and installed the ROM like you normally would using clockwork.

    You should follow the directions for installation that Liquid posted for his rom because it may be different than what I did. I don't want to mess your phone up anymore than you do.

    Let me know how you like Liquid, I may have to try it out because I used to run that on my droid 1.
