    I have unknowingly posted this question in the "sticky" note for CyanogenMod Installation. So, I am really not sure if anyone would bother to look at the sticky, esp my question in it. So, I am posting a repeat. Mods please excuse me for doing so. You may delete the post from the sticky thread.

    So anywho, here is my problem and how I followed the steps.

    Phone Used: Moto Droid 2

    1. Rooted my phone using Z4Root . Below tutorial followed:
    HOW TO ROOT Droid 2 - IN DEPTH TUTORIAL

    2.Rooted successfully, as I can install Tether App and run it successfully

    3.Downloaded Titanium Backup (although I have not played with it)

    4.Downloaded and installed Droid 2 Bootstrapper as per the tutorial here:
    HOW TO ROOT Droid 2 - IN DEPTH TUTORIAL

    5. Ran the Bootstrapper and created a backup. Backup successful

    6. Googled for CyanogenMod and stumbled on this page:
    Video: Installing CyanogenMod V5.0.4.2 for Droid - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    7. Installed ROM Manager from the Market

    8. Downloaded "Stable" version of CyanogenMod from the link below for Droid
    CyanogenMod Mirror Network - Powered by TDRevolution
    Name of the file : update-cm-6.1.2-Droid-signed

    9.Per the instructions on the link here I opened ROM Manager and hit on "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" and selected Droid 2 on the next popup window

    10. Got a message - "Successfully downloaded ClcokworkMod Recovery"

    11. Selected "Install ROM From SD Card" option and selected the "Update.zip" option

    12. Phone got rebooted and it did its thing of Formatting and finally said it was ready to reboot (I could take a picture of that screen if you guys need to see)

    13. Phone came back up online and it looks exactly like before. NO ROM GOT UPDATED OR CHANGED.

    So, what you guys think I am doing wrong here? My hunch is the "ROM Manager" and "Droid 2 Bootstrapper" are conflicting with each other????? I could be definitely wrong, I just took a pretty wild guess there :)

    Thanks for reading my question and any help is greatly appreciated!

    I think your problem is you are trying to flash the build for a Droid 1 on the Droid 2. As far as I know, there is not yet a build of CM for the Droid 2.

    Exactly. You can't get Cyanogen on a phone with a locked bootloader. You may want to do a little more research next time.

    Thanks Mightybrick. That should be the reason. Now, that being out of the way, is there any ROM for Droid 2 that is nearly comparable to CyanogenMod?

    Exactly, that's why the original droid is still so popular. Moto's newer devices are nice, but locked up tight. Think twice about buying a Bionic...

    Thanks Jay! I am still a noob at this and there is a plethora of knowledge to get what is for what! Still, I will try to do more research next time :). Thanks for your reply.

    I have a Droid 1 and I'm having this same problem with 6.1.2 not installing. What is ADWLauncher and Launcher2? I chose ADWLauncher, not sure if that matters or not.

    Thanks for any help.

    EDIT: I selected Launcher2 and now we're getting somewhere :).

    Download the deprimed kernel from that thread and flash it from recovery and see if that takes care of your loops.
