    Hi, so I've been trying to install a custom rom on my droid 2 global. Whenever I use rom manager, I end up bricking my phone.


    Is there a way to install a new rom using a computer with USB rather than those android apps?

    If so, how?


    Thanks :)

    Which custom rom are you trying to install? I don't think that there is any way you can install a custom rom using just your computer. If all else fails you could use a clockwork mod recovery.

    Download rom to pc, and copy it to phone via mass storage.. Boot into recovery and flash.

    Might want to Google a guide from XDA / Rootzwiki your device and rom your flashing just incase there is anything specific...but yeah copy the download. Zip over to your SD card unmount, reboot to recovery and flash as normal.
