    Bye bye nandroid backup installer.

    I got a working "update.zip" for MS2Ginger.

    You can install MS2Ginger like Cyanogenmod roms now.

    Will upload this zip later.

    MS2Ginger supports 3 way boot - 2nd-boot, 2nd-init* and stock way*

    *works only with Moto GB kernel.

    EDIT:

    Next step Aroma-Installer = one zip for all defys

    - you can select defy or defy+ battery
    - soc camera or bayer camera
    - Blur apps yes or no

    Good news.

    Custom kernel boots with MS2Ginger.

    But still a lot of work.

    First log. Maybe someone can help.

    http://pastebin.com/haT65naZ

    On my google drive mirror (MS2Ginger folder 5.0) you can find a first 2nd-boot-beta version for testing. ADB works. If i got kernel on my defy full work i will make a update.zip for beta testing.
    14
    BIG GOOD NEWS TODAY!

    Custom kernel for MS2Ginger works now!
