    OK guys I am posting the files I needed to port my 2.3.340 based ROM, GummyJAR, to the D2..

    This should work for any 320/340 DX ROM really.

    Now with my ROM I also had to include the AOSP keyboard as the Gingerbread one doesn't work right on the D2.. Also make sure to to redue your build.prop edits as this update comes with a build.prop


    Here is an update.zip with all the needed files :)





    Please if you like my work donate as I would like to buy other phones to build other ROMS :)

    so all you do is flash your DX rom of choice, then update.zip this over it?

    I may be wrong, but my understanding was that this is for the ROM devs to easily make there DX ROM work with the D2.

    If you have a DX based rom that is based on 2.3.320 or 2.3.340 and it boots to the D2 and has issues with the keyboard, camera, and music playback...

    yes you can simply boot into recovery and install this update and it should fix it.

    Guess I'll have to look into how to do that.
    In looking at a dx rom and your porting files, there are some differences and i cannot just replace files. In meta folder, there is an update-script and in dx rom there is an updater-script. same thing?

    Redownloaded and getting the same results. I would like to try to get just the notification bar and pulldown. Is this just framework-res? or do i need other files associated with it?

    Don't know much about darkslide.... the dev may be doing something that makes his rom incompatible with the D2
