So I have been looking all over this thread, I cant find an exact step by step guideline to flash the squidly rom on my friends D2. I know to go to the zip file and download it on the phone, but from there do I just open Astro, put in on the base of the sd card, and install? I'm looking for a step by step form of things to tell me what to do. I know I need to use bootstrapper to make a recovery but I do that after I flash the rom, right? Am I missing anything here?

I read the main threads like the Root/Rom Class, the Main squidly 2.3.20, and the various squidly and hack threads... can somebody give me some help please?

Once you've dl'd the ROM, move it to the root of your sd card (not in a folder) and exit Astro. Do you have texts/call log you want to keep? I'll walk you through the steps :)

You use bootstrap recover before flashing the rom, as that is the way you flash it. You'll bootstrap recovery and then place the zip on the root of the SD card. Then you boot in to clockwork recovery by opening bootstrap and hitting reboot recovery. Then when you're in cm recovery you will mount system and data and then instal the zip from the SD card. Iirc squids new rom does not require a wipe of data.

Actually this one doesn't require a wipe. That's why I recommend it to first time flashers. Very easy.

Do I open Bootstrap recovery and through that place the Zip on the root of the card? Or do I go through Astro?

Place it on the root of the card in astro. Then open bootstrap and hit bootstrap recover and wait for it to say success. Then hit reboot recovery.

That's done through Astro (as mentioned above). Wasn't aware of the "no wipe required" aspect of Squidlymandingo's ROM! I'd still make a backup first!

Ok so place it on the root. Then bootstrap recovery and then reboot recovery. Once in cm use the volume rockers as scroll buttons the power button as the back button and the camera button as the enter button. Scroll down to backup /restore and choose to make a backup. After the backup finishes reboot the phone. Then reboot recovery again and scroll down to mounts and storage and mount system and data (when they're mounted it will say unmount data or unmount system and data may already be mounted) then go down to installed zip from SD card and then choose zip from SD card and find squids rom and install it.

+1 but, rebooting after backup is finished isn't necessary.

I suggest rebooting after making a backup to solidify that it is an important seperate opperation. I layed the steps out once for someone and they ended up doing the backup after flashing the rom because they weren't paying attention to the order and that left them with no stock backup.
