CyanogenMod 7.2 Breathes New Life Into the Motorola Droid 2
I had left my Droid 2 sitting in a drawer since I got my Droid X a few months ago. When CyanogenMod 7.2 RC1 came out, I started playing around with getting it loaded up on the Droid 2, not wanting to risk my “production” phone. The first few attempts went awry, so I’ve documented the process that worked for me. I am very happy with the results and feel that CyanogenMod 7.2 is a big step forward from 7.1. Please read this entire post before following the directions. As you might expect, I’m not responsible for anything – so proceed at your own risk.
Boot Droid 2 Recovery Process
You can boot Droid 2 recovery by holding down the X button on the slide out keyboard and then holding down the power button. After around 10 seconds you’ll see a yellow exclamation point come up, like in the image below. If you don’t do it right you’ll end up powering on the phone – don’t worry, just wait for it to finish booting. Then power off and try again.
Press the Search (magnifying glass) button on the slide out keyboard, below the X, to access the menus. That’s it! From here you can wipe data or install an update. If you have an alternative recovery, you still boot this way, but it might look different.
SBF Droid 2 – It’s Not That Hard!
These instructions will help you SBF Droid 2 back to the stock Motorola configuration. The process to restore or SBF Droid 2 is simple but could damage your phone if done improperly. Or, to be honest, even if done properly (though that’s very rare – this is just a disclaimer!) [Edited 5/14/12]
