Thanks to DragonzKiller for his work on...
CYANOGEN MOD 10
Credit to dzk for the inital write up here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1912280

Check out the original write up for a list of all the features

Whats working:

  • WIFI (if the patch works)
  • Bluetooth
  • 3G
  • Calling
  • GPS
  • Google Now
  • Audio
  • Camera (see known issues)
  • Maps

sdcard mapping are as follows the internal sd card /storage/sdcard0 and the external sdcard /storage/sdcard1

Taken from original post
New to Alpha 3:
New cyanogenmod updates/features added in.
use the regular bootstraprecovery not the cm patched one make sure to install it everytime you wish to use it.

Known issues list from the original post
  • Recovery: Fixed in Alpha 2!
  • Stability: While not exactly an issue as CM10 is INCREDIBLY more stable than CM9, that doesn't mean that it's 100% yet. As of now, I've only had the broswer crash twice and the notification drawer flicker once. Your milage will vary.
  • Camera: At it's current state, the camera (not camcorder) will work. HOWEVER, the preview for the camera in the main camera app does not at the moment. It only shows a white rectangle. If you point at something and press the button, it should take a photo. Other camera apps show the display, but update it very slowly causing an ANR. Again, your milage may vary. ** Fixed in Alpha 2 (except camcorder) ***
  • Some ICS/JB Apps Will Crash: This is noticable on Chrome for example. This is because our drivers don't have Exteral OES Textures. Basically that means when the apps want to draw using them (such as with Chrome's tab preview) the app will crash. This is the same problem on CM9/ICS. There is nothing we can do.
  • Data usage: Just don't ask me. I might get to it again one day. We'll see.
  • Apps on SD Card: Do not persist on reboot, expect fix in Alpha 3?

How to install:
Again credit to DzK
This can be installed over CM7/CM9 or BLUR but you MUST wipe data and cache. SBF if coming from Alpha 1.
  1. READ THE ENTIRE POST
  2. Download the links provided below and put it on the External SD Card
  3. Install the BSR (patched if on an AOSP based ROM, unpatched if on BLUR)
  4. Reboot into the BSR
  5. NANDROID
  6. Install the CM10 zip from the SD Card
  7. Install the GAPPS from the SD Card
  8. Wipe both DATA and CACHE (no need to wipe Dalvik if you wipe both of these)
  9. Install WIFI Patch from SD Card
  10. Reboot your phone
  11. Enjoy a better phone experience

Links!:
Required Download the JB 4.1.x apps: http://goo.im/gapps
CM10 Alpha 3 Link Must SBF before updating: Google Drive:best link
Medfire:least reliable
MD5: 659fc26bebca317168214cebf051cd3f cm10-01272013-unofficial-mx2.zip
WIFI Patch: Gdrive

Change log:

You would flash the rom that ive patched and the gapps link goes to the same place as dzks mine just has a different url format. and if youve had issues with sbfing id wait till alpha 2 before flashing cause as far a i know the same problems that happen with the dx2 are happening on the mx2 with alpha 1 though i havent confirmed it. dzk has gotten a recovery working for alpha 2. id upload that one but it wasnt posted at the time of writing the guide.

no problem i exist to help. even if i dont know much development or have time to do it myself. and yah i think i shot myself in the foot with alpha 1 gonna see if i can fix the internal and external sdcard maping issue. thats the only thing thats keeping me from deciding if this is gonna be my daily driver or not, that and the fact that i might have to sbf to flash anything else.

verify the download with the hashes, and let me know if apps can access the sdcard so i know if i need to turn the second post into a walkthrough to fix it.
the download checks
update
just flashed over no problem this thing is very smooth. will check wifi when i get home.
cant move apps to sd
Update
WiFi works I'm on it right now no problems. All the other small issues seem to be better. Just needed to be more patient with it.

thanks for the update that just confirms what ive found. ive remaped the /mnt/sdcard and /mnt/sdcard-ext paths on mine allows easier viewing of the sdcards but doesnt enable app access. must have something somewhere else that would fix that till alpha 2 is posted but no such luck so far.

Lrs121 are you working on a patched mx2 version or do I need to try to remove the kernel check and repackage. No rush, nor am I begging, just asking cause I can't do it till later. Also I've yet to go to cspur and see if they'll fix my 3g so when I nandroid back to stock I'll do it then.

Thanks so much and a side note on my 3g saga I'm trying to get in touch with a buddy of mine who is a tech at cspur to see what he knows about the carrier files. I feel as though I should be able to pull them from a nand seeing as 754boy was able to sbf with ntelos and nand back to stock and get cspur back. There has to be a way, but that way may require an unlocked bootloader in order to flash a radio. Thoughts?

Can't believe I have jelly bean on my MX2. Just booted for the first time. Hoping for the best

Edit: After initial flash and google account setup, my wifi will not turn on even though I flashed the wifi patch. Will try to reboot and flash again once all of my apps are restored.

Edit 2: Installed recovery, flashed the wifi patch and then rebooted. Phone is stuck at the Motorola M logo. Looks like I will be starting over again.

Edit 3: Flashed CM10, gapps, wiped data/cache, flashed wifi patch and rebooted. Stuck again at the Motorola M logo. Rebooted into BSR. Wiped data/cache, flashed CM10, gapps, wiped data/cache again, flashed wifi patch and rebooted. Everything seems to be working now, even wifi. Strange........

not really if you can find the files there a motorola tool that connects with your phone running through a standard usb connection. Motorola phone tools i think its called. i havent touched some of that stuff since the original razr (non-smart phone version) came out so i dont know. i was talking with a tech at Inland (my carrier) and he said something of the name of the tool he was using i just cant remember right now.

sometimes it takes what i call the 3-triple-wipe to get things going.
  • nandroid
  • wipe the 3 (factory,data/cache, dalvic)
  • flash rom
  • flash gapps
  • flash wifi mod
  • wipe the 3
  • flash ra recovery(not valid with cm10&something to put between wipes)
  • wipe the 3 again for good measure

If that doesnt work for me i nandroid back to stock and go from there, sometimes i even go so far as to sbf twice to make sure nothings left from the previous roms.

If you ever get anywhere with this please let me know! All that's missing are the carrier files for your phone. I sbf with ntelos then nand back to my stock rom. No data and said I was roaming all the time. Bought it in and they just flashed the carrier files and everything worked as normal again.

Let me know again if you get anywhere with this and if you need or want any help just let me know and I'll try my best to help!

ill scrounge around and see if i can find updates to my old tools and if i can try and find the files or atleast where the files exist in the seems so i can find them on the phone itself. but i bet someone with more knowledge and experiance would have better luck with it
