    ok so i have a droid 2 globel and i was downloading roms and the rom installed fine but when i went to boot i got stuck at the "m"....i think the whole reason for this is because i might have downloaded a rom for a droid 2 instead of a droid 2 global.................HELPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:frown:

    Did you flash this rom with adb or cmw? If adb, then download the correct rom and repeat. If you used cmw, you should be able to boot into recovery (power + x I believe) and do a restore (assuming you did a backup).

    Just to be clear, adb uses a computer to push files to the phone and cmw installs files from the SD card and does not use a computer.

    OK. That isn't adb, but that's OK. Using your computer, go find a ROM that IS intended for your phone and download it. Since I don't have a D2 I will find out how to boot I to recovery from start up and then repost it here. After you have downloaded another ROM, transfer it to your SD card. Please tell me you have another SD card adapter besides the phone.

    I found this in a D2G thread, try it and see if you can boot into recovery. "The best way to get CWM to boot is to wait until the "M" logo comes up and the backlight on the screen turns off, then pressing and holding the power button for 5-10 seconds." If this method does not work, you are probably going to have to use RSD lite to return the phone back to stock and then start over from scratch.

    I just checked that site out and it looks like the MIUI ROM is the only one that is designed for a D2G. If that is the one you want it should be fine.

    Here is the D2G Development section on XDA:

    Droid 2 Global Android Development - xda-developers

    There are many ROMs available in here and they usually have install instructions in the first post. Check it out.

    If you continue to read through this development section you can find threads that discuss the very issue you are having.
