    AOSP on Droid2

    Hey guys, after a couple weeks of work, and alot of questions directed and Cvpcs and Koush, I have managed to get an aosp build of android running on the Droid2. Its definately an alpha right now, but it does boot, and you can browse through the phone. I will hopefully have a video up today.
    Things that dont work atm:
    Phone calls.
    Wake from sleep.
    Battery status.
    Some audio stuff.

    Wifi, bluetooth are working along with all the soft and hard keys.

    More to Come!!

    Awesome! Great work! Does this mean once its out of testing, that contacts will be normal again, as they were with stock Android?

    Congratulations, Slayher!!

    Very cool/impressive. I know many D2 owners are going to be very happy to be able to get ASOP on their D2s...

    Awesome, dude. Thanks a lot! It seems like the D2 community is pretty dry so far; this would be an awesome addition to the community!

    Yeah...all I want to keep from the D2, if push comes to shove, is the new Email client (used for Exchange accounts) - I like it much better than the stock 2.2 Email client, but I have a feeling I'll have to give it up.

    The other thing I'd like to keep is the battery profile manager, that actually works much better for me than Juice Defender, which made my D2 very unstable.

    Means it's based on Android source code released by Google... Android is an open-source program, so Google (and many/most Android developers) release the source code to the public.

    Nice, smart (sucking up here) people like Slayher then take that code and use it to build a ROM from it that can be installed on our phones. The benefit here is that it would be "stock" Android, and not encumbered (if that's how one feels about it) by Motorola "enhancements" (if that's how one feels about it) like the MotoBlur stuff...
