So maybe we could make a working Gingerbread for Milestone 2.


- Defy has rooted only Android 2.3.4 /system nandroid-backup http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...44&postcount=8
- it is also possible to run 2nd-init on milestone 2
- read this (Defy 2nd-int + froyo kernel + Gingerbread-system working) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1130656
- i think it could be possible to get gingerbread working on milestone 2

- basband should be change with original milestone 2 files
- /lib/hw/ from milestone 2 needed
- kernel from milestone 2
- fix for camera

Whats your opinion?
I'm sorry to kill your optimism, but we are unable to flash onto /system for now. Big files at least..

So build one: https://github.com/koush/Droid2Bootstrap

Edit: Check this out "use an update.zip that waits a bit longer for the system to settle then unmounts tmp and remounts /"

Hey, what happens if I flash Defy's SBF on M2? Besides other problems is it possible to enter bootloader mode and flash another sbf, or it will corrupt the device?
I didn't, but I saw it was a prerequisite for the Rom posted here, so if there's theorical trouble, then I won't try.

Also I found out that Droid 2 bootloader image has the same first and last bytes as M2 (but different check sums), and Defy's is little different.
