Default [ROM] [Nandroid Port] {Update for 2.3.5/418 OTA} 2.3.6 Milestone X2 for Droid X2

This is a totally Droid-less Brand-less Stock DST Rom -"Pure Blur"! Based totally on a Milestone x2 2.3.6 "multi-carrier" nandroid backup folder.
It works for the Droid x2 & Milestone x2 of course.
Thanks to 754boy for helping to make this possible.

Nandroid Downloads & Updates at end of post

This rom is all set to active on many carriers.

Latest update's benchmark:


My Dx2 still shows as a Dx2 on my VZW account.
2.3.5/413 phone info:

The "Nandroid port" is my term for a CWR restore of a system (wiped means all-3 and leaves nothing but system) from another phone. This is not usually possible but the only thing distinguishing these two are "Star Wars" & $$!
Hell the Mx2 could even get ICS.

This is Easy as pie, just like restoring your last Back Up!
If you are on 2.3.4 you will need to update to 2.3.5/413.
If on 235/412 is ok, some minor issues and no wifi.

You need to be on 235/413. Which gives kernel... 00008.., for everything to work.


YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO CWR BECAUSE OF ReRecovery!!!
As long as you are aware that the wiped nandroid is bootstrap-less and flash ReRecovery before you reboot system.

I must digress here for Noobs: (BSR = CWR)
You do not have run "MOTODX2_Bootstrap_signed.apk" aka "System Recovery" in your app drawer to get to BootStrapRecovery! Once you choose recovery mode and the phone goes to CWR thereafter the phone will always go to BSR when you plug-in and power off. If this is news to you try it right now. More news: while you are in BSR unplug the charger & pull the battery, put the battery back and plug-in. CWR will boot. ReRecovery sets up the same conditions (files and stuff) that you just tested to take your phone into BSR. With ReRecovery you have no choice, power off OR a battery pull along with plugging-in Boots BSR. BUT ReRecovery is flashed from BSR so you can refresh BSR anytime! Like after a Data wipe which kills BSR OR after a ROM flash which kills BSR OR after restoring a wiped Nandroid which also kills BSR. Sorry for the long rant but that is life with a locked bootloader.

ReRecovery.DX2: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1326385786
ReRecovery thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1426062

This is the process condensed:
It is an "out of the box" Stock backup folder. Backup your current system before anything. Kernel upgrade path is: sbf the 234 leak > do the 235/413 OTA. Run VooDoo before and after the OTA. Restore the mx2 BU. Wipe all 3. Flash ReRecovery. Reboot. Install super user to gain root.

Zurgrush will root 2.3.5/412 but not /413 so for our port we need VooDoo.
Zurgrush requires a computer. VooDoo does not.

A Lot! More on Rooting Methods here (Thanks to Moon Shadow - NM) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1315711

Don't try to flash eclipse w/ the SU backup present!

First get the latest VooDoo. Old VooDoo is not good. (really I had problems on v1) http://androiddev.orkitra.com/downlo...55941944302146
How to use VooDoo Root Keeper before you apply the an OTA update: ( "VooDoo" )
Run VooDoo Root Keeper and choose protect root so all the boxes BECOME checked (see note).
Note :if all the boxes are ALREADY checked you may have saved SU with an older version of VooDoo. Run VooDoo and choose delete SU BackUp (do not unroot) then uninstall VooDoo.apk then install the latest VooDoo and get all the boxes checked

How to get to 2.3.5/413 Blur (kernel 00008)
Update: use the 2.3.5/418 for a slightly advanced kernel & a radio/baseband to better match the mx2.
Nand port with 2.3.5/418 phone info:

All instructions are the same for both the above.

Stock Mx2 phone info:


If on the Leaked 234: Nandroid to your 100% stock BU then "VooDoo" and apply the OTA.

If on 235/412 (there is no direct path to 413) OR you have no 100% stock BU : SBF to 234 (leaked), Root with Pete's, "VooDoo" and apply the OTA.

After the Update run VooDoo and restore root.

There is VooDoo and DIY OTA UpDate info on post #3 of my signiture link.

Unzip on your phone.

This link works, 2.3.5/413 OTA : I USE ROOT EXPLORER ONLY TO Extract all.

Mx2 Nandroid downloads and updates are at end of post.

I use Root Explorer to Extract the MX2Nandroid236.zip. Use no spaces if you rename a Nandroid. Put it in your normal /clockworkmod/backup folder .

Restore it from cwr then wipe all 3 (data,cache & dalvik) and flashed ReRecovery.dx2.zip then "reboot system now".

If you activate or do a factory reset be sure to choose Setup first rather than Sony Home.
Tap quickly on the android to get around activation if you like. If you are in landscape mode when trying to accept the Moto user agreement you may miss the hidden check box. *228 works and Backup Assistant not there to bother you.

You will need to install Super User to gain root after the nand' restore.

Debloating this rom: (I use Super Manager to test freeze - many of clcrawl's candidates really should stay if you don't mind the performance loss- then just Uninstall em) (Thank You clcrawl)

You may want to use this as a more conservative guide.

This "nandroid Port" succeeds where an SBF of the 236 Milestone x2 to our phone results in a one way path to a near brick:

To Do list: DeBloat, Deodex. Depending on the reception of this "port" the sky is the limit- any improvements to /system can uploaded here! Whether done to a Dx2 or a Mx2. By Myself or You.

This is my fav launcher. It was hacked for qhd and the bar icons are a little out of alignment. No landscape. But uninstalls, puts folders in launch bar and is fast. The theme option it has never worked.

It does not support copying text from a webpage like the newest Miui version, but that won't run on blur.

*******Nandroid Section********
(OK everyone 250+ downloads. Anyone want to comment? )

Latest Updates are first.

If you activate or do a factory reset be sure to choose Setup first rather than Sony Home.

Newest update:
All updates are Deodexed & based on the 1st deodexed.

With the newest beta I no longer have the semi random reboot while waking after charging.
I have less issues with the beta than the original.
This is my daily driver. It is very good.

Updated nandroid: Beta Atrix/Mx2 system apps. Moto Phone Portal and other extras in addition to all of the pervious version. This ver has SE Home only, Blur Home has been removed.
I put this as a beta BUT I have few problems with it.

Md5 of the zip: 869915B338C2CFEA807C45DC369DD5EA

With the following "2 home" nands- the older beta & Deodexed - you may have problems if you don't delete the unused home. "Moto home fix" is what you need to access the blur home btw & clear its defaults to get se home back. All the various home choosers do not work.
You want to keep one sys home always so "safe boot" works. It's like a temporary data wipe for apps only.
For system/app(Home apk's), after you are sure of the one you want to keep, just add ".bak" to the one you don't want. You may get a Forced Close but a "battery pull" reboot will fix it.

Updated nandroid: Beta Atrix/Mx2 system apps. Moto Phone Portal and other extras in addition to all of the pervious version. This ver has BOTH SE home & Blur Home.

Md5 of the zip:
1800D127E1AAB18DCA8B430A0A34C5CD

Updated "PureBlur": Deodexed, BSR, SuperUser, BusyBox, BOTH SE home & Blur home, sd flip + other system apps. Not debloated.:
See "back to stock-sd" at the bottom of op to get your sdcard-ext back to normal.
I am putting it back for those who want it. Please let us know if you have any problems, Thanks

How to merge an update with your Current "PureBlur" ROM so all your data apps remain. Power off to CWR . Backup your current to be safe. Do all the following in the same CWR session:
Choose Backup & restore .....
***CHOOSE THE LAST one>>>Advanced restore.
Select the "Update Nandroid" (.....PureBlur.sys.only...)
Select restore system.
Wipe cache & dalvik. DO NOT WIPE DATA.
Flash ReRecoveryDx2.zip. Reboot.

Will this give developers more options to build roms on this as a base? Thanks for putting this together. Would love to try but after running custom roms for so long stock is painfully for me

I am sure, if no problems are found, this would be equivalent to a real 236.

Kinda like the Atrix. But the big m just continues to morf all by itself- "brand-less".
