I'm not even gonna wipe data on first try as bsr will be trashed. On most roms you can get by the FCs to privacy data reset and so doing sure of rebooting just fine.

i know that it will be done at my own risk but are you saying that you are going to install ontop of alpha and do a factory reset once everything is loaded? and by doing this...BSR wont be messed up?

anytime theres a update for a rom i just flash it over the previous version that is already installed and just reboot, unless it requires of a different kernel of course. I never had a problem or ever got force closes with this method but we shall see

/end hijack lol sorry....I couldn't help going off topic....

No, the heat is likely the init bug that is about to be fixed.

Just an FYI...
Just an FYI....

I wouldn't apply the update over the Alpha build.
dragonzkiller hasn't sent down his instructions yet,
but rest assured I believe he will reiterate the same thing.
It is always possible you can update with out wiping data, cache, Davlik etc,
but then there's also a certainty that you will have problems.

Remember this was an alpha build. Moving foward to a more stable and reliable build, and with these changes comes a change in files and structure.
Why risk a flashing a good build over the top of a build previously with known issues? No disrespect to the developer is intended. Dragonzkiller is well known for his quality of work. However if you know that alpha build has certain issues why would you flash a more stabke release over the top of a unstable base. Not a good idea at all. Those are the ones we wiil be reading about in this forum as it progresses.

The link is gonna drop soon, So be ready and do things the right way the first time, this way you dont experience those unexplained issues later, anjd end up SBF'ing anyways. Just my thoughts from 20+ years in developing.

Whatever instructions dragonzkiller provides I would suggest following his instructrions. However as a positive rule of thumb; I would suggest to always:


1. NANDROID BACKUP!
2. SBF to 2.3.4,
3. Root with zergRUSH.
4. Install the ORIGINAL Motorola Droid X2 Bootstrap Recovery.
5. Put all updates / zips on your sdcard.
6. Boot into BootStrap Recovery.
7. Install CM7 and updates.
8. IMPORTANT! Wipe data and cache (factory reset) and wipe dalvik cache!
9. Then sit back and enjoy your new and STABLE CM7 on your DX2!

That was odd. I pressed the power button on my phone and it woke up but the screen didn't turn on. I either managed to shut it off or it crashed, because it rebooted, only when it came back on it said I was roaming. After another reboot it went back to normal.
