    I took the plunge today and installed Fission Rom and I have been trying different themes. Things are working great so far. I’m also using ADW launcher, no conflicts yet. There is one feature of that launcher I have a hard time living without. I use a favorite apps folder on my home screen. ADW gives you the option of closing the folder after starting an app.

    After the installing the rom the first time I turned off the phone and then turned it back on after the M and droid animation the phone went into recovery. The phone has not done that again.

    So after installing the rom, the first time, I signed into google and restored all my apps. Then I tried to install a different theme my FRM was not there. (duh!) I reinstalled FRM and tried some different themes. (I didn’t realize that google didn’t restore FRM after the first install)
    Thanks, My D2G is setup just like my original Droid, just much faster/smoother…dancedroid

    Thanks again for this great ROM. Dont know how other folks can stand to use the phone with the stock Moto Blur...

    Read your updated first post and the one item that jumps out at me is

    'This ROM does not have SIM card functions yet so if you are using a SIM card then please do not use this ROM'

    A bit confused, does this mean that the phone will not work overseas on a GSM network? I see in the setting menu choices for gsm, wcda etc. are they just placeholders? Thought I read in other posts that the phone is working with your rom on gsm networks.

    Also just in case anyone is interested, restored original rom from Moto/Verizon, upgraded the phone and then restored 2.4.3. All works fine, new radio and kernel is all that I see changed. Cant tell any difference at this point as to what the update fixed.

    Anyone know?

    This ROM is great. The whole phone is faster and more responsive now. And installation was a breeze with Fission ROM manager.

    Yeah you would think it would be stickied by now as good as the ROM is. Although this being stickied alongside that Warning! Sticky would be kinda contradictory.

    The roms are great. Can themes be used without a custom rom? I went back to stock but wanted to try the gb themes out. I am running the android boot animation currently without any issues

    Open Droid2 Bootstrap, click on the first button, grant it su permission and then it should stop bootig into recovert when you power up your phone.

    Which first button, "Bootstrap Recovery"? Did that, but it still goes into the bootstrapper (Clockwork anyway!) menu when the phone reboots. Makes it hard to return to VZ for a swap! I am using stock, maybe Fission is different here.

    Update: I found these instructions (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...s/102962-how-remove-clockwork-recovery-2.html) which worked for me. I was a little nervous about actually deleting files from system/bin, but it did the trick!


    1. Reroot
    2. Get root explorer in the market
    3. Uninstall the bootstrap app
    4. Go into root explorer to system/bin
    5. In top right corner tap r/w
    6. Delete the file called hijack
    7. Delete logwrapper
    8. Rename logwrapper.bin to just logwrapper
    9. Reboot and it should be gone.

    Thank You.

    Wow. Thanks to everyone involved with this ROM. The Fission 2.4.3 ROM is the ROM that should have shipped with the Droid 2 Global. You have saved me so much time and effort because I really was just about to return my Droid 2 Global and reactivate my Droid 1 before I found this thread. I could not stand Verizon's red coloring on everything, the uglier icons, the mangled phone dialer and sms app, and most of all Motoblur getting in the way of my account syncing. Sorry Motorola I don't want all my data backed up on your servers. I love that the new lock screen music controls are still there.

    I was weary of installing this at first since there is no SBF available but I am so glad I did. The Fission Rom Manager made installing everything a breeze. I hope everyone buys the Bootstraper App from the Market and also donates at least $5 to download the full version of the Fission Rom Manager. Thank you so much for restoring the full functionality of my phone!

    OK...so I want to install this ROM, but I have a concern.

    The main reason that I purchased this phone was because of the SIM/GSM capability. I have already input the SIM unlock code into the phone and am currently using the phone with my Afghan SIM...no problem.

    Question: Does this ROM support the SIM/GSM setting to allow this? And if i install the ROM do I have to re-enter the SIM unlock code?

    Ready...Willing...and Able...but concerned......

    It should support all sim cards, I have it working with ATT :) There will be an updated package on Fission ROM Manager soon that has more of the sim card functions.

    Make a backup first, if it does not work then you can always go back. You should not need to enter your code again but make sure you have it handy in case you do need it.

    This sums up my sentiments exactly. MotoBlur is garbage. Motorola needs to stick with stock Android, really. I absolutely love this ROM. I'm running the Gingerbread theme, and it looks great. I used to have a Nexus One running Gingerbread, too.

    Thanks again to the Fission ROM team, keep up the amazing work!
