    Downloaded FRM, downloaded FRM ROM, put it in Install Queue, checked backup and wipe cache. Pressed install, nothing happens.

    just go into clockwork and install it yourself....

    it is in SDCARD:\fission\ROM it will be called Fission_2.4.3.zip or something along those lines (of course, it will depend on the version you try to install)

    I can't get into recovery mode in bootstrap either.

    if you cannot get into recovery, confirm that the following are installed on your phone

    Droid 2 Bootstrapper, Superuser, and clockwork recovery


    you need clockwork to install the bootloader, you need bootstrapper to get into the bootloader, and you need superuser to allow the bootstrap to run. if you do not have superuser, there is a good chance you are not rooted


    post back with what you have, and i can help you

    go into superuser, and look at all the apps that are on the list. long press and delete (i believe SU calles it "forget") the apps then try to boot to recovery

    Only 2 apps are listed, an ad blocker and battlenet, pressed forget for both. Still can't get into recovery mode.

    and you have gotten into the bootloader before, right?
    go into clockwork and flash the bootloader a few times just to make sure. use bootstrap after that and see if it works.

    if not,


    try the recovery failsafe. (always has worked for me anyways.)

    1. remove the bettery from your phone.
    2. turn it on and let it boot as normal. While it is on the boot image (the "cartoon" that shows after the moto logo, but before the lockscreen) pull the battery. leave it out for 3-4 seconds, and then put it back in and power up. this ALWAYS gets me to the bootloader if i ever have a problem

    I have only rooted my D2 thru command prompt on my PC. Maybe it failed?

    I went to Bootloader and clicked Flash ClockworkMod Recovery, I chose Droid 2, and it said Successfully Downloaded ClockworkMod Recovery!, I pressed ok.

    But when I press Reboot into Recovery, nothing happens.

    Same thing, what else can I try?

    If Fission ROM Manager is a Paid/Donate only application then asking for or the posting of direct download links is not allowed - if you have paid for said app and are having issues downloading it, you need to take it up with the Developer on their site

    I tried the boot up Recovery Failsafe. I removed the battery during the red Droid animation, and powered up after a few seconds. Booted normally.

    What else can I try?

    Ok, I finally got some answers from another forum. I re-rooted with Bootstrap and was able to install ROM. It reinstalled my apps, but lost all my contacts. I backed up but I cant find it.

    Also, lost Fission ROM Updater. Am trying to get back to normal.

    Any way to get a text app without bubbles?

    do you have the droid 2 bootstrap? Also, everyone, make sure you export your contacts to a csv file then back em up on gmail or you might lose them. Alot of the questions here can be answered by reading the hacking/rom install class in the droid 2 hacks section. If your planning on rooting and romming you really should read through all the info there, some of you guys are very brave, when I first got my d2 I read every page of every post regarding bootstrap and roms 100 times. Just dont flash everything all willy nilly, head over to the hacking /rom install class thread, for the sake of your phone!
