    Roms

    so i read somewhere that we can now do roms too. as i am new to android can someone provide me info on what i should do so i can recover my phone if something happens. How does the stock android os handle contacts that are synced, That is something i really hate about blur.

    the phone was just rooted not too long ago so there are no roms that i know of yet. To revert back to stock there are sbf files which flash the whole phone back to factory. there is a sbf file out there. It shouldnt be too much longer there will be pinned posts and how-to's on how to do all that.

    I read the same thing you did i think. It stated that the D2 was rooted and that koush and someone else where working on ROMs.

    That was some serious misinformation.

    Koush already had clockwork on the X, which is very close to the D2. Rooting would be different for the 2 phones, but I would imagine that his DX clockwork recovery app would just be a simple port once he gets around to it.

    Will that mean you will be able to theme using all those metamorph themes?

    Id imagine there is some difference in the bootloaders and i wouldn't be surprised if that update to 2.2.20 blocked the exploit that koush found to get the loader on the DX

    Metamorph files mess with direct system files so im not sure if you applied anything it would kick the bootloader or not

    Either way there arn't any metamorph files out for the D2 and i wouldn't try to use one meant for another device
