i've tried this rom but it doesn't work well, home and search button don't work, it keep saying aosp keyboard and ota updater crashes and i can't put my google account because it crash at the end

i've tried 11/03 and 11/10

I know it's ages since you posted this, but I'm replying in case anyone else comes up against the same problem.

This happened to me, and I think it was a problem with the cache partition. I tried to format the cache partition in recovery, but it didn't work - it said it couldn't mount it. I had to reflash the stock GB ROM using RSD Lite (using the instructions at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1032372) and start again from scratch. But once I did that, everything worked fine.

My problem could have been caused by starting off from Froyo, or the fact that I tried Engle Mars's 4.2.1 ROM first - I don't know. But the RSD Lite procedure was painless.

Hello.

I had similar problems. Flashed CM10.1 over Tezet's CM10 and quite frankly it was awful. Frequent lockups and reboots made the ROM unusable so I tried flashing back to CM10 and then encountered the cache partition error that you spoke of.

Now I have reflashed EU GB SBF via RSD Lite and the phone is stuck on bootloop. Tried several times but to no avail. Any ideas?

I followed the guide here, and it just worked. Can you get into stock recovery, and have you tried calling "wipe data"? If you can, that might help - and it might also show you if there are problems with the data partition that are stopping it from booting up.

I don't know the details of how the SBF files work and whether trying a different SBF would help - I picked the one that matches my phone and it worked.

I'm not an expert, but I hope that's pointed you in the right direction. Good luck!

Managed to get it into stock recovery and, lo and behold, still reporting /cache errors. A format and cache wipe later and the phone boots up.

So maybe it's possible to just use stock recovery to format/wipe cache when there are /cache errors rather than re-flashing a stock SBF?

How do I get back to the bootstrap recovery to install G Apps when I've already installed CM? Its not clear in the instructions on the main post and the Droid2 Bootstrap Recovery installs but will not reboot into recovery mode?

Nevermind, reboot -> recovery. Idiot =]

I'm having a lot of problems now, I'm getting the same error regarding the aosp keyboard and ola updater and when I plugin the USB I get nothing. How do I restore using RSD lite if I cannot get a USB connection?

To restore using RSD Lite, you need a USB connection.

What you have to do depends on what you mean by not being able to get a USB connection. If RSD Lite can't see the phone after step 3 in the restore instructions, then check if you get a USB connection when plugging the phone in normally (does the phone detect that it's connected via USB, does the phone offer to change the USB connection mode, does the computer detect the phone when it's not in charge-only mode?). If you can't get a USB data connection - even if the phone charges over USB - chances are your USB cable is broken. It's possible that the USB cable will work with other phones but not the Milestone 2 - I have encountered that before.

Ok, that was my fault. For some reason it took me a while to get into the bootloader. Anyway, I'm using a UK milestone 2 and I've tried both british SBF's from that page and neither work. Any suggestions?

I tried that and still received the errors.

I have the same problem later, it's always happens when I flash my m2 to 10.1 and after that I make downgrade to cm by tezet.

But my solution for that is simple and work for me. Firstly flash original sbf (for me is one of bl4 rom's) and after that go to classic recovery and do full wipe. For me works like a charm ;)

you guys have problems, because of the filesystem. engle mars took 4, tezets is based on 3.
i think a few pages before engle explained what to do, to change back file system.
my way is: restore a nandroid of tezets rom. and thats it....:D

The best solution it's just wipe data from stock recovery. That's all.

    04.09.2012 - Fixed compass, improved video perfomance (nadlabak), updated SGX libs (Quarx2k), fixes for qwertz layout

    27.10.2012 - Fix boot reason, fix charge only mode, fix low performance after boot, kernel optimizations, JB interactive governor, power hal (need interactive governor to work properly), fix overclock (thx to SkrilaxCZ, Nadlabak and Quarx2k)

    Hints & issues
    • lgCamera works better with video recording
    • Currently wipe data and cache in OTA updater does not work
    • CM10 does not contain Car home, you need to install it manually (search for google car home)

    Installation guide for stock roms users

    1) Root your phone (you may use SuperOneClick root method)
    2) Install Droid2 Bootstrap Recovery
    3) Open Droid2 Bootstrap Recovery and tap "Bootstrap Recovery", then "Reboot Recovery" granting root privileges. The phone should reboot into recovery. Use volume buttons to navigate, camera button to accept, power button to go back. You will install files by selecting "Install zip from sdcard".
    4) Optionally: create a backup of your data
    5) Install latest CM ROM image file.
    6) Optionally: install Google Apps
    7) Select "Wipe data/factory reset"
    8) Reboot and enjoy :)
    9) Optionally: select baseband version corresponding to your country and BPSW version


    Installation guide for CMx roms users

    1) Optionally: create a backup of your data
    2) Install latest CM ROM image file.
    3) Optionally: install Google Apps
    4) Wipe data and cache partition
    5) Reboot and enjoy :)
    6) Optionally: select baseband version corresponding to your country and BPSW version


    Installing updates

    The most convenient way of installing updates is through built-in OTA updater. Note that currently wipe options do not work there, so you may need to do it manually in recovery. For most cases that won't be necessary though.
