    I've just failed my 5th CM7 flash attempt. I've been using Liberty 0.8 up until now, and have plenty of experience flashing ROMs.

    I have a Droid 2, and am trying to flash CM7 103 (but I've also tried nightly 100 with the same result).

    Steps:
    1. Power + UpArrow, use RSD Lite v5.3.1 to flash the original stock firmware
    2. Power + X, flash gingerbread OTA update, clear data + cache
    3. Root with the Droid 3 one-click script
    4. Install Droid 2 Bootstrapper
    5. Bootstrap Recovery (5.x.x.x) & reboot
    6. Clear data, cache, and Davlik (I've tried various combinations, leaving one or more out too)
    7. Install CM7, G-Apps (I've tried leaving out G-Apps too)
    8. Reboot... Hangs on red Motorola logo
    9. Go back to step 1
    I've also tried installing ClockworkMod through Rom Manager, but it fails - it simply reboots my phone without going into recovery. What step am I missing?

    Edit:
    The new nightlies are based off of Froyo, not Gingerbread, so my system files didn't match.

    I'm sorry, this should be in the Droid 2 forum, not Droid 2 Global.

    If it's the latest Cyanogenmod 7.1 you have to flash it from froyo not Gingerbread, the latest froyo update since it's a froyo based kernel.. Do not do it from gingerbread.

    Using the Cyanogenmod firmware CM4D2-GB-20111006 instead of cm_droid2_full-103 worked. Whew! I got a boot-loop at the CM7 stakeboard splash screen, but was able to fix it by clearing data & cache (I had only cleared cache and Davlik originally).

    So why would they be going back to Froyo after having a Gingerbread version?
