    AFTER BURYBOI'S & THE REST OR THE GET~R~DONE DEV TEAMS TRIAL & ERROR A LOT OF BURY BOI'S TRIAL & ERROR THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK BRO


    After learning a lot through trial and error, messing with several D2 Roms, I came up with this handy "tool." After flashing the D2 Rom of your choice, flash this update to "convert" it for use on the Global.


    Obviously use this tool at your own risk, neither I, nor any other member of Get~R~Done are respondible should you brick your phone.


    Before you begin, download the following two files to the root of your sdcard along with a D2 rom of your choosing.


    D2G_Romer.zip


    D2G_Sensors.zip


    Installation Instructions
    1. Reboot into Clockwork Recovery
    2. Create a nandroid Backup
    3. Factory Reset/Wipe Data/Cache
    4. Flash the D2 Rom of your choosing.
    5. As soon as that completes, flash the D2G_Romer.zip
    6. If you want to disable the sensors flash the D2G_sensors.zip
    7. When done, reboot your phone, hopefully, if all went well, you will not bootloop, I haven't...yet.


    Known Issues
    The sensors still cause sleep/wake issues. To disable them rename /system/lib/hw/sensors.droid2we.so to sensors.droid2we.bak. The D2G_Sensors.zip is essentially a toggle. If sensors are working (and your phone is rebooting everytime it tries to sleep), flash D2G_Sensors.zip to disable them. If your sensors arent working (no auto rotate, and your phone will sleep like normal) flash it if you want to mess with the sensors.


    build.prop will not report your rom as whatever you've flashed. It will say it is D2G Rom-er. This is because the tool is generic. I really didn't feel like making a seperate tool for every D2 Rom just so build.prop will report correctly. This easily fixed by manually editing build.prop from root explorer.


    Some roms (Apex in specific) do not include all of the system apps (Apex happens to be missing a phone.apk. If you format system prior to flashing a rom like that, you wont be able to make calls. For this reason, the instructions above only recomend a factory reset/data wipe.




    General Warnings
    I flashed a rom that would not let me boot back into Clockwork recovery (gummyjar). As of now, I don't know how/why that would happen so be careful, and do not do this unless you are comfortable using the SBF released by TBH.


    Before you flash anyrom, be certain that it doesn't include the D2 kernel or Radio files (I'm not aware of any that do except maderstock and that's for the X). A D2 kernel on the D2G could mean a brick, and not the SBF cureable kind.




    THIS IS A GREAT RELEASE BY BURYBOI & THE REST OF US FROM THE GET~R~DONE DEV TEAM AS THIS IS A HUGE STEP FORWARD FOR ALL D2G OWNERS ......AS YOU ALL CAN SEE IN THE short 2 WEEKS THIS TEAM HAS BEEN TOGETHER WE HAVE RELEASED 2 MAJOR RELEASE's FROM ARE FANTASTIC DEV TEAM





    ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS LONG LIVE THE GET~R~DONE DEV TEAM

    &


    GET~R~DONE

    Sorry if I miss read the OP I'm too excited I just want to make sure I have this right...

    so I can download Liberty for the D2 then just flash both .zips after the initial ROM flash and it should be good to go?

    This is all kinds of AWESOME by the way!


    Also what D2 ROMs have been tested just looked at Liberty and noticed its base is GummyJAR which you said had issues going back into CW

    Thanks again for all the hard work on this guys!!

    So how do g-sensor games work or do they not? Also these zips look a lot like the gjartodxport.zip I suggested which you guys didn't think would work... looks like a couple of files are missing, I would include all the keyboard files too so transitioning to the dx Roms will work easier... also if the sensor files are included why don't they work right?

    I personally havent tested any so not sure.....

    As for looking the same, Buryboi threw it together from figuring out what was needed.

    We're not sure why the sensors arent working. I think its something not playing well with the d2/d2g files. We've tried pretty much everything but pulling every file apart.

    WoZzY, thanks for the report. I am not in the States and will gladly give it a try, however I suspect failure as I am pretty sure we need some extra stuff to get GSM working. Fission has a patch that you need to apply to enable GSM radio support. (patch seems to have GlobalNwSwitch.apk in it, not sure if there are any initialization scripts, edit - looks like no - just the APK). Maybe you guys can have a look into it? The D2G is unfortunately my primary phone and I need the phone functionality in it :).

    I'll give a try of some of the ROM's from D2. Anyone know D2 rom that has the blur dialer in it? That's the feature I absolutely love in stock D2g rom!!

    Another edit: I just saw you included GlobalNwSwitch.apk in the romer. So GSM support should be there! Any idea on the sensors? That's really crippling the phone..

    leobg,

    GlobalNwSwitch.apk is included in the Rom tool, but that wont make GSM show up in the settings menu (menu>settings>wireless&networks>GSM/UMTS Options), I think that is part of the settings.apk or settingsprovider.apk But if you go to the testing menu (*#*#4636#*#*), it will let you enable GSM through there, I just dont know if that is enough to make calls.

    Let me know if you end up giving it a shot.

    and to 473x15,

    The Alpha is still up, I guess it was more of a proof of concept for the D2G_Rom-er. I suppose I could manually port all the D2 Roms, but that would involve getting lots of permission from The Devs that poured heart and soul into making them, and since the sensors don't work, it would be a huge waste of my time. WoZzy talked to Squildly and go the ok, so we released it.

    I've talked to the Liberty Devs, and while they would probably have allowed me to release their ROM (broken as it may be), I got the feeling that they would much prefer an official, fully functional release. And rightfully so, they don't need to be providing support for our hacks/mods. So, that one wont be released unless we work out all the bugs.

    Which reminds me, if anybody tries a D2 ROM, don't complain to the original dev that the sensors are broken, it's not their problem. And if you do enjoy running a D2 Rom on your D2G, please take the time to thank the D2 Rom Devs! They've put in a lot of work and deserve all the credit.

    This rom tool accomplishes two things, first it took quite a lot of time, and several SBF's to figure out which libraries we need on D2G to run a D2 Rom, rather than asking everybody to do that manually so they can help figure out sensors, this tool makes much quicker work of it. And second, it does allow people itchin to try Roms to do just that (even if the sensors are broken for now). If I, or anyone else who cares to take a crack at it, figure out the sensors, then we'll take the time to talk to real dev's about porting their work to the D2G. For now, D2G users can get pretty good functionality with all the Themes, as long as they can live without sensors (which does kinda suck, but really isn't that bad of an experiences...I've been running with out them for well over a week now).

    we have squidly released as a alpha but BURI BOY through The D2G RoMER as together that way are team can can focus on the sensor issue & also to look @ d1 roms that could be ported over

    But right now the squidly rom is as good as it will get until we can fix this pesky sensor issue

    But we will be working on it until we get those sensors working for you all

    we have to pull apart & look at every jar file to see if we can edit them & get the sensors right

    sorry if the post I posted last night led to false rumors of squids final release for the D2G but this was a big release for the d2g as it has opened the rom field rom dam for the d2G
