    I'm sure this has been brought up already, but I was wondering how likely it would be (if at all) that miui could be ported to the d2 if cyanogen was?

    Let me add some tips that helped me.

    1) If you are on gingerbread sbf back to 2.3.20 (TBH & MyDroidWorld Present: Droid 2 (2.3.20) Triple Threat)

    2) root, and install cyanogen mod (CyanogenMod Mirror Network - Powered by TDRevolution)

    3) after installation of cyanogenmod DO NOT REINSTALL BOOTSTRAP RECOVERY you do not need it. reboot into recovery and install miui.

    4) If you get a bunch of f/c upon loading up miui, reboot into recovery (stock recovery will work) and wipe data and cache.

    5) Load up and enjoy

    Note: Being miui is cyanogenmod based, you also will not need bootstrap recovery.

    Also I highly recommend you get the teamblackhat app and download the sbf file that can be used as an update.zip ....$3 is not a lot of money at all. (http://shop.teamblackhat.info/)

    Thanks Droidlife, rootwiki, cyonogenmod, cvpcs, framework43 and every one involved. If I forgot you pm me and Ill make the correction.

    I was wondering the same, after someone on the MIUI team ported it to the Nook Color using CM7 as a base, was wondering if someone will do that to other phone devices

    It's failing horribly so far. OP in that thread had no freaking clue what he was doing. pieced it together from some other crap for the D1, didn't build it from source and thought the kernel was in /system/kernel.

    MetickOne is good enough that he can get headway.

    Your very wrong, actually. The OP didn't have the 2nd-init hack at his disposal at the time which was a big disadvantage. If you actually follow to the end, Framework and ljbaumer took over. Framework has a DX that someone gave him, ported miui to it and it booted and a lot works. ljbaumer is gonna take that and port it to the 2. metiCkOne hasn't even gotten it to boot

    Is it very hard to port a ROM from the droid X to the droid 2?

    I would assume it isn't because GummyJar, Liberty, ApeX, RubiX, and CM7 were all ports from the DX. It wont be long :)

    So odds are it won't be too terribly long before we see it? And its not about porting from the x to the d2, that's far easier in comparison to just getting it on to one or the other

    ok, I'll ask a dumb question....so I only rooted a couple weeks ago, and running CM7...to load MIUI, I can just flash through ROM Manager just like a nightly?

    Sorry for the noob question. I actually have been looking for the answer to no avail.
