How to install(credit to DZK)
Install the BSR (patched if on CM7/CM9)
Reboot into the BSR
NANDROID <--- you'll probably want to go back to this
Install the CM9 zip from the SD Card MX2 Users Go to the MX2 Thread for the Patched CM9 zip once it has been updated to Beta 1
MX2 ONLY! Install the WiFi Driver zip from the SD Card
Install the GAPPS from the SD Card
Wipe both DATA and CACHE (no need to wipe Dalvik if you wipe both of these)
Reboot your phone
Enjoy CM9 Beta 1
Fixes/Info-for flash with out data wipe
Constant superuser requests - Fixed
when it happens - when you open an app that requires su access
Theory - su updated but the app list didnt causing request loops
how to fix - enter play market; go to my apps and uninstall updates for superuser; reinstall updates; open superuser and manually update binaries
Always shows Updating Android - Info
Info - No fix known, however it does not prevent your device from starting. Itll add on a couple seconds to the start time the first few times the phone is turned on after the first startup after flashing. After a few restarts it only takes a split second and it jumps right to the lock screen.
Reboot/Shutdown hangs (note this is occasional) - Info
Info - When rebooting or shutting down the phone will seem to hang with the rebooting/shutting down notification and the spinner is still spinning. The phone will become unresponsive to button input; that is normal for the shutdown and restart routiens.
Fix - None however the phone should reslove it fairly quickly the longest ive seen it hang is a minute or two then it shuts down or restarts properly. if it lasts longer than that i recomend a battery pull.
Restart doesnt work properly - Info
Info - this usually happens when the restart hangs. the phone will determine that the restart is taking too long and will force shutdown the device. The device will not start back up AUTOMATICALLY. Just turn on the the phone normally as if you had told it to shutdown instead of restart.
WIFI Does not start - info/fix hybrid
Info/Fix - after flashing the rom and the wifi fix, the wifi may or may not turn on/connect durring the first start up, restart the phone. After the first restart the wifi should turn on but be delayed in connecting, wait for it to connect or say its connecting and then restart the phone. afterward there should be no problem with the wifi. if you are still having problems you may need to reflash everything.
Will Update post as soon as the second mirror is up
Gapps (note recomend finding current gapps and installing those. these are the ones i used)
MX2 WIFI Patch
DKZ Came out with CM9 for the Droid X2. I tried to flash it and it did not work.
I did some modifying on his file, which he created, to see if I could get it to load in the Milestone X2. We are running a different kernel then the Droid X2.
I wanted to let everyone know that it was a success! With Several hours in trying to locate certain files and modifying them we have
CM9 FOR THE MILESTONE X2
I am in no means taking credit for DKZ's work. He did a fantastic job!
Problems I have seen so far are:
WIFI (working with DKZ to work)
Have not tested
Theme's are suppose to work.
The transitions are smooth and I have not had any issues with freezing or anything yet.
