    ===========================================


    Liquid ICS v1.5 (Motorola Droid 2 )

    MD5: 0fea6bc6ae05864aa8de1ded0e086e44


    ===========================================


    Installation



    • Ensure that you are on a Gingerbread kernel
    • Make sure you are rooted and have Droid 2 Bootstrapper installed (or recovery via Rom Manager)
    • Download zip and verify md5sum
    • Boot into ClockworkMod recovery
    • Wipe data/factory reset (if coming from test builds you only need to wipe cache)
    • Install zip from sdcard (install zip from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard -> liquid_shadow-ics-v1.5.zip)
    • Reboot and enjoy!
    Thanks


    • The entire liquid team for the rom (and the top half of the OP)
    • Bikedude880 for the initial device trees
    • Jonman409 for picking up cm9 and doing sooooo much work to it. Without it ICS roms for this device would not be where they are.
    • Beanstown106 for getting me interested in porting this to begin with
    • Everyone who tested and provided feedback
    Notes


    • Because of how our hardware acceleration is implemented it requires a whitelist for apps to recieve it. This will be updated to reflect CM9's list per release but if you wish to add to it you can manually by editing the hwui-whitelist.txt in /system/. To find the name to put into the file navigate to /data/app then copy the name minus the -1.apk. The app will recieve hwa after rebooting.
    • Because this is not an official port do not report issue's to the Liquid team, report them in this thread please.
    • I will not be updating this per beta release but instead will update per official release.
    • I have not tested every single aspect of this rom so if you notice a problem please bring it to my attention, preferably accompanied by a logcat

    first off, let me say a huge THANK YOU to 13th angel for not leaving us poor D2 step-children behind! I love my R2D2 and he's happy to have this fantastic ROM. That said, I am coming off Liberty and this runs super fast and (liquid) smooth:) I do have an inquiry and apologize ahead of time for still being a noob. Is this where I would report a bug of sorts? If so, here goes...

    I use the car dock daily. I noticed there wasn't an app in the app drawer for the car dock. I put it in the cradle and "car dock enabled" was in the nav bar. Immediatly the camera app started. I exited out and pulled the nav bar down and hit the car dock and nothing. Is there a car doc in the works for this RM? I know there is a very good one in stock ICS but fully understand that not everything gets carried over. I could use an aftermarket in Google Play, but wanted to see if maybe something was in the works or possibly I was missing something. Thanks in advnace

    This ROM is awesome so far. Been running this for a day now. Works great and haven't encountered any issues yet. Features of ICS on GB. Using my DROID2 for fun. I also have a Razr Maxx as my main phone.

    Well, I've fixed my own issue:) I went with Car Home Ultra, it's not too bad:/. Certainly doesn't work as well as the GB car dock, but whaddya gonna do, right?

    Now on to my new issue, hopefull the Dev can reply (again, sorry if this comes off as noob question)
    My R2D2 restarts after powering down. I had this issue with the GB update and Liberty after I rooted, but with Liberty, I just had to plug in the charger right after powerind down and it wouldn't restart. Last night, it kept restarting, even if I plugged it in. Any thoughts? Yes, tried a battery pull as well

    Hope someone is willing to help an out of touch, and out of date Droid X. I would love to install this on my phone, but unfortunately am a little outdated. Here's what I got:
    System Version: 2.3.340.MB810.Verizon
    Android Version: 2.2.1
    Kernel Version: 2.6.32.9

    I am rooted, and have done a Bootstrap backup. Aside from getting a new phone, what would be the best way to upgrade my OS?
    Thanks

    I really like this! I just got it, I didn't activate it yet due to being in Europe instead of the good old US :D. I am guessing to activate it I will just have to dial *228(verizon) right?

    The only thing that I have noticed so far that doesn't work perfectly is the stock browser, it feels like the options menu comes up slowly. The rest is very good so far, really liking it.

    Also for anyone who had 2.3.4 and needs root, check this(I just did it a few hours ago and now loaded liquidsmooth on and it works flawlessly) New root method for stock 2.3.4 (621/622) found (Droid2, R2D2) - Droid 2 / R2D2 / Milestone 2 / Droid 2 Global - RootzWiki

    I saw that you found a fix, but I'm guessing if you search you'll be able to find the stock apk for Car Dock and then you can just side load it.

    Maybe a dumb question, but I'm running CM9. My kernel version shows 2.6.32.9-gca08d89. Do I need to do anything prior to flashing Liquid?

    Took the plunge and flashed this with no issues. All seems to be working so far BUT Google Play music player force closes each time I run it. :(

    You should check the Droid X section here and on Rootzwiki. Usually there are slight differences between the Roms for these phones.

    had the same issue yesterday with the latest update for google play music. I had to uninstall it and load v 4.1.513, the new one was optimized for ICS but I kept getting the "unfortunately google play music has stopped working" Once I went to the old version, everything worked fine

    on another note, I do love the responsiveness of this ROM, but I'm frustrated with the caller ID not showing up while docked in my car dock. I've tried everything from 8 ways to Sunday to fix this and nothing is working. I've tried new ID apps, voice ID apps (tried to have them go through my bluetooth, doesn't work with ICS). Battery life seems to drain pretty fast as well. I'm contemplating going back to GB and running CM7......

    Does this suffer from the same Hardware Acceleration as the other D2 ICS ROMs? I've been stuck on GB forever because I use Netflix heavily on my phone. I'd really like to switch, but I can't go without it.

    Has anyone else experienced the video camera and panorama modes not working? Everything else seems really snappy with this ROM.

    That's an issue of devs having to create drivers for the camera. It's something that will likely always plague ICS ROMS on our phones.

    MIUI tested, mother approved.
