hello all you wonderful people who also own droids!:)
got a few simple questions if you don't mind..!
I currently own a droid 2 global, however he just started acting up (issues with the screen, shouldn't be texting when its raining/snowing)
so i'm looking into a new droid and I am not totally sure what the differences are between the Droid 2 and the Droid 2 global,
but the main thing I wanted to ask is how does the R2D2 differ from the D2G? because it is such a kickbutt looking phone but I dont want to ..move backwards so to speak?
droid R2D2 a957, has a 1g processor and is cdma (verizon) only
droid 2 Global a956 has a 1.2g processor, radio is cdma and gms(global)
the rest is virtually the same, the processor difference is minor
thank you so much for the insight!
(the R2D2 doesn't have a sim card spot like the D2G right?)
correct r2d2 is cdma so no sim card slot
[ROOT] Framaroot, a one-click .apk to root
I have verified it works with these Motorola devices running android 2.3.4
Droid 2 (a955), Droid 2 Global (a956), R2D2 (a957), & Droid X (MB810)
just download, allow unknown sources, install, open, select top root method (Gimli), reboot phone, done
no pc needed
My R2D2 is soon to be a toy now that I'm typing on a new Droid 4. I, too, may be swapping new parts onto the old artoo unit before re-sbf-ing & re-rooting it with disabled VZW radio to be a strictly Wi-Fi game/media drone. This would be keyboard overlay replacement #3, screen frame #2, and he needs new adhesive on the antenna + cam plates.
I will share R2-specific links if I find anyplace new vending parts, but I've been considering a "dead" decent physical condition eBay option for transplanting R2's good guts this time around, as long as I'm already geared for tearing down this phone again. Maybe I'll get creative & pursue those R2-Q5 dark side droid designs I was dreaming up once upon a time...
