    I'm new to the whole rooting & ROMing thing. I wanted more out of my phone and knew it was possible. I spent countless hours studying up on the process and learning the lingo. Last week I rooted and then installed the leaked Gingerbread rooted version. It was great but the more I read and studied, the more I kept seeing references to CM7. This morning I SBF'd and flashed nightly 42. WOW my eyes have been opened. This is amazing. I was considering getting a new phone in the coming months. That is no longer even a thought. My D2 has new life. I just wanted to take a moment to thank Droid Forums and everyone here for the wealth of information found on this site. I have learned so much.

    I know how ya feel. I spent over an hour in CM settings when I first flashed (which was about 2 months ago now, before the official nightlies) and yet, someone today pointed me to a forum post about a portion of CM Settings that I had never seen. It is so customizable, it's ridiculous. It's fast, it's stable, it's functional... it's everything I have ever wanted in a ROM.

    Now you should know better than to mention a forum post about CM settings you've never seen without telling us where we can find it. SHARE!

    You have to SBF back to 2.2 Froyo? You can't just install CM7 straight from the Gingerbread leak?

    No you have to sbf.

    There is a file from TBH called the All In One installer that you can flash and its supposed to be the same, but an sbf gives a completely clean slate to work with

    Do I need RSD Lite to SBF so I can install CM7? Is a nandroid backup advised? If I need to do one of those, do I use Recovery or ROM Manager to do it?

    Thank you.

    This TBH file fails. You need to SBF. I speak from experience.

    In order to SBF, would I need to download the 2.3.20 SBF, flash to that, then upgrade to CM7?

    I use Titanium Backup. I gave up doing the nandroid backups. It would not hurt to do a nandroid backup, but they will not work cross platform, aka Froyo vxs Gingerbread.

    I do have Titanium Backup. That would be much less trouble than trying to get a nandroid to work.

    No you want 2.3.340 SBF.

    I can't find any references to that number for the Droid 2 on Google, only the Droid X.

    You are correct. I thought I was in a Droid X forum.
