I found it to be several hours of clicking dead web sites and links.
So i managed to get this old droid up to date.
i later decided to upload them myself just incase. i will always have this.
Then i decided that others might be spared the same painstaking search for resources.
I dont have credits to post as many were found 10+ pages deep in google searches in the form of a file host account.
At the time i amassed these files i dint stop to record where they came from or even where i started when i realized i needed to find them.
ANYWAY XDA is about sharing and i just thought some might find usefullness.
For me. Starting with a droid 2 A955 on the Gingerbread .621
i used FRAMAROOT.apk
Backed up the factory (now rooted) rom in recovery with nandroid
in recovery formated system and installed CM9 rom and gapps.zip
resulting in what you see below.
However like any good dude i amassed the files nessary in case anything went wrong or if something didnt work i could try something else before I even started.
here are all the files I gathered
