I do not have access to a Droid2 right now so please do a NAND backup BEFORE and then try to flash my MIUI D2 ROM[/URL]

Make sure you have a .sbf file to restore the phone to factory state if this rom does not work as intended,
remember I DO NOT own a droid2 (and with the lack of donations it doesn´t look like I will be able to afford one anytime soon)
so unfortunately I can not test whether the rom works correctly, partially or not at all.


make sure you have root and clockworks recovery installed
Warning!!!! Make sure you are on 2.3.320 or 2.3.340!!!
-boot into recovery via clockworks bootstrap
-select "wipe data/factory reset"
-select "Yes -- delete all data"
-go back "powerbutton"
-select "install zip from sdcard"
-select "choose zip from sdcard"
-find and select


If the rom does not work to perfection (or at all) and you want to help with the porting effort please carry out the following steps:

1) Install the latest alpha (in this thread)
2) (optional if you want to produce a debug log but can not do so)
Before rebooting apply the following patch to enable debugging

3) From a terminal enter these commands:
adb shell stop
adb shell setprop log.redirect-stdio true
adb shell start
and in a separate terminal
 adb -d logcat
Now reboot the phone so we get some logs (hopefully)

4) Repeat the process of point 3) with
 db -s ? bugreport
5) check the contents of /sdcard/clockworkmod/ for .log files

Get me the resulting output logs... (under /sdcard/clockworkmod/ )


If you encounter errors please be as specific as you can in the error report

As promising as this looks. After downloading twice and copying over twice I can't install it. I get E:Error in /sdcard/ (Status 6) Installation aborted.

Any ideas?

Would love to give this a try also if the file gets fixed. There has been a lot of hype around MIUI and I'd like to see if it works any good!

Open the .zip from the first posting and rename

to update-script

and the content with:

show_progress 0.2 10

Then I am not sure if you need to sign the resulting .zip or not (try without and see what happens, if it works, or a different error)
Make sure you edit the update-script file within linux or using something like ultraedit or notepadplus

(remember guys I am working blind here as I am not likely to have a droid2 for a couple of months, I need people able to flash the different alphas and report on errors)

yes, the scrip has to be named update-script not updater-script

So try with the correct name and the content in my previous posting
