    Hey guys! Just wanted to let DF.net know that I made a custom Liberty/Fission hybrid ROM. I'm gonna flash it to my D2G now. I'll let you know how it goes...

    Sorry for the confusion and I'm gonna need another day or so, but what I'm actually trying to do isn't "my own custom rom". I'm trying to get Fission 2.4.3 to update to 2.5.7.

    Also, if 2.6.1 is available on FRM to download for D2, could somebody post that? The most up-to-date ROM I have is 2.5.7.

    Well it depends on which Phone your talking about.

    The Fission 2.4.3 for D2G is not actually the same as the 2.4.3 for the D2/DX.

    They are very different which is why many are hoping for Angdroid to get the D2G version up to speed on the version numbers.

    To the OP - Good luck but have you tried using the Romer patch on the D2 version of Fission? What were the results of that?

    I haven't personally tried it, but from what I've read here on the forums people are still having the sensor issue.

    In ttheory you should be able to push the framework files from 2.5.7 over the 2.4.3 base. I haven't tried it yet because I dont know how to adb push.

    Try clearing data and cache!

    Yes that because Romer still hasn't found whatever is needed to make them work without crashing. I think they will once there are more examples of D2G builds to compare with. My guess is if Angdroid ever gets the D2G version of Fission integrated with the D2 framework we will find the answer.

    I believe that the D2G version of Fission does not really incorporate the custom framework of the D2 version it is simply a hack of the stock Moto ROM with some edits to allow the D2 Fission theming to work. It has replaced some of the framework with vanilla android as a start but is has not really integrated all of the work that is in the D2 Fission yet.

    Buryboi from the Romer group has done the most research into that so maybe he can say for sure what the differences are.

    But from what I understand the D2G is not much more than a replacement of the SYSTEM folder over the stock Moto that has been deblurred as opposed to a full framework replacement the way the D2 version of Fission and things like Liberty are.

    Which is why you need to go back via SBF after flashing Liberty and Romer if you want to go back to the Fission D2G system.

    Nandroid should work though if you made a backup there.

    The difficulties and differences between the D2 and D2G is due to the dual band nature of the radio. Kind of like the problem with flashing a CDMA rom on a GSM WM phone. WOn't work.

    And it means that some routines needed to run the Dual Band radio are not needed or present in a D2 ROM.

    Romer's goal is to find everything that is needed and put it there.
    And they have done much better than I would have expected that approach to work.

    The fact that the sensors are the hold up and not the radio is really amazing! LOL

    Asphyx is right.

    Fission for the D2G shares nothing but a version number with Fission for the D2 (well a version number and some images in framework-res.apk)

    If you push D2 Frameworks to a D2G, you absolutely must also push /system/lib/libandroid_runtime.so and /system/lib/libandroid_servers.so

    Essentially, when using the Romer, you Flash a D2 Rom, which puts all D2 files on the /system partition of the phone, then flash the Romer which puts all the D2G files back with the exception of the two files mentioned above.

    You can pull the images from Liberty's framework-res.apk and put them in Fissions and have a Liberty theme (I've got that done, but haven't posted it). You can also run all the Liberty Apps except settings and settings provider and get even closer (the only app you cant run with out the liberty frameworks is browser.apk, it will force close due to permissions that are laid out in the D2 Frameworks that are different from D2G frameworks).

    Also, I think Asphyx already said it but if, after SBF, you get stuck in bootloop, pull the battery, boot into stock recovery (hold X and power until the you see the android, then press the search button on the keyboard), wipe data/factory reset and reboot.

    Good luck!

    This is certain to be a very unpopular statement but here goes...

    "De-Bluring" any Motorola phone invariably breaks some functions and doing so on Global devices is worse yet for all of the above stated reasons.

    I have yet to see any Blurless build where Diag mode access properly functions for virtual serial port COM assignment allowing service programming with Qualcomm service ware. I realize this is a very insignificant consideration to average users but is indicative of how the Blur framework is integrated with the radio and other hardware on the phone and how complicated it is to remove the Motorola proprietary drivers.

    This is why I don't use any of them and consider all to be far too much trouble and liability for what is gained.

    To each his own. ;)
