    Are there any issues with the rooted GB leak for Droid2?

    My wife has a DROID2 and it's been acting up, i convinced her that rooting the phone and updating to gingerbread might help some of those issues. Is the pre-rooted gingerbread stable? Do all the features work? How's the battery life? I appreciate any and all responces. I have done hours of searching prior to posting this thread but can't seem to find any solid info on it.

    Its pretty amazing compared to froyo..however..we are close to an official ota..so you may want to hold off a bit..at least for one more week..then again..I won't take it. I'm enjoying cm7! But if she is having issues, why not just wipe data? That should fix everything...

    Sorry but to answer your question..its a "leak" though official...it had a couple of issues but I can't remember exctly what..But honestly I loved it! The only thing is if you don't like it..sbf or all in one back to froyo is needed...I say go for it! Shell love the animations and the speeds..the status bar and pull down is blue tinted..and there is apex she can flash that is amazingly long battery and a few tweaks for speed..Please remember to make a backup before you flash anything..I will be here if you need anything..I know she won't be happy if you brick her phone...lol good luck!

    I was under the impression that no update was coming, that was according to VZW support tho.

    Well if i wipe it then she loses all the data from her apps and stuff and by rooting i could back everything up first.

    Yeah i've never done anything to a DROID2, tho i was flashing new roms and stuff to my DROID almost every other day so i've beaten "backup everything" into my head. I've been reading up on the whole process all morning and it doesn't seem very difficult but i appreciate the offer for assistance and if i run into any issues i'll surely ask for help.

    Well, if you flash to gingerbread, you'll wipe anyway...but yes, I use titanium backup...its a miracle worker...and yes you seem to be fine if you've done all this before..But use Z4root..you shouldn't need a computer unless sbf...if you do have a question..I'm here bro!

    Lol. Once I get her used to this I'll try to talk her into some more advanced roms.

    If you're looking for a quick fix for speed/battery life, ApeX is the way to go, and Liberty GingerBread is great too (battery life is a smidge worse, but its very customizeable). You could also over/underclock it with android overclock (made by the same guy who did Liberty)
