    I had an issue the first time I tried to ROM my first D2G. I did bootstrap, but every time I booted it after shutdown, it would go to bootstrap and then bootstrap would have to write the script to boot the OS. Also, failed the flash and had to restore the backup. Phone quit working soon after that, radio quit working. Had to sbf and then warranty replace.

    Any ideas?
    I don't want to break my phone again

    for me, getting it on the phone isn't the problem ... it's knowing which version to use for a droid 2 GLOBAL. ugh, wish I had bought a regular one!

    Ok as for which version (I assume you mean CM but I'll address others later)
    If you have not upgraded to Gingerbread (either via the leaked versions of OTA update) then you need the first version of CM7 made to work under Froyo.
    [Dev Thread][BETA] CyanogenMod 7 (based off cm4d2 port) [FROYO BASE]

    If you have updated to Gingerbread and have not SBFed back to Froyo (which overwrites the kernel) then use this version:
    [DEV_THREAD]Droid 2 Global CM7 with Gingerbread Leak Kernel

    Follow 13th Angel's instructions above to install.
    to root after GB update you must use the D3 root method not z4root as z4root and other froyo rooting tools will not work under GB

    I could use some help, I've followed all the directions, I was on the GB OTA, rebooted into bootstrap, wiped cache/data, and tried to install the CM7 .zip and it fails. Everytime. I SBF'd, flashed the rooted leak from TBH, rebooted into bootstrap, wiped data/cache and tried to flash the CM7 .zip again and it failed. I'm back to my original GB OTA clockwork backup. Any ideas?
