How To Flash CM7 To Your
Droid 2 Global
Ok so you've rooted your phone and gained a bit of
knowledge about the Droid 2 Global. So what's next?
A Custom ROM!
ROM stands for "Read Only Memory" Which really isn't an
appropriate name because we are going to be changing part of it.
Before you start make sure you are rooted (guide HERE)
and you have the Droid 2 bootstrap installed (guide "Custom Recovery"
Courtesy of Koush HERE)
and that you are on Gingerbread (2.3) Which is the newest update
Ok so now you are going to get the CyanogenMod 7 Nightly
Newest as of 12/17/11:
(As of right now http://revnumbers.info is down that's why I'm
telling you to go to the forum thread)
All credits go to RevNumbers for CM4D2G-GB
You will also need the newest Google Apps available here:
Latest Version/Google Apps - CyanogenMod Wiki
Then move both ZIP files to your SD card (If you downloaded them on
your computer) via a USB cable
NOW THE FUN BEGINS!!!
Step 1: Boot into Clockwork through bootstrap
Step 2: Wipe the data and cache (use the camera key to select, volume to
navigate, power button to go back)
You will lose everything not on the SD card so back it all up!!!
Step 3: Install the Cyanogen ZIP from the SD card.
Install zip from SD --> Choose zip from sdcard --> CM4D2G-GB.zip
Step 4: Install the google apps (gapps) ZIP file
Install zip from SD --> Choose zip from sdcard --> gapps-gb.zip
Step 5: Reboot!!! and enjoy
This guide is not perfect!!!
