Hello,

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]
IMPORTANT:

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.

ALPHA7:
http://www.ziddu.com/download/14374125/alpha7_signed.zip.html



Install:
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 alphaXX-signed.zip
-reboot

WARNING:

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

4) Repeat the process of point 3) with
Code:
 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/miui-d2-alpha-signed.zip (Status 6) Installation aborted.

Any ideas?

Open the .zip from the first posting and rename
/META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script

to update-script

and the content with:

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)

New download link doesn't work, check your pm's btw.

In the first version you forgot to add an updater-script and the other thing that is usually in that folder.... I'll add it for you and then test it out, if it works I'll upload it.

Really nice work.




Update: just finished fixing the updater-script and am testing out now
Update #2: never mind, something is just wrong with the zip and it's not working for me. I didn't end up fixing it.

I'll try and make another zip thingy.... I think just taking the files from the original zip and then putting them in a new signed one should work out


Update: FML, the rom still doesn't work so I know it is not a zip problem. I am getting a problem on clockworkmod and the log says this happened:

Code:
ClockworkMod Recovery V2.5.0.8
--Wiping DATA....
Formatting CACHE...
Formatting SDEXT...
No app2sd partition found. Skipping format of /sd-ext
Data wipe complete.

--Wiping cache...
Formatting CACHE...
Cache wipe complete.

-- Installing: SDCARD: NewMiuiAlpha.zip
Finding update package....
Opening update package...
Installing update...
E:Error in /sdcard/NewMiuiAlpha.zip
(Status 6)
Installation aborted.
I don't really know how to fix a status 6 problem but supposedly it is a problem with the updater-script and I think I know how to fix that. I am going to try one more build and if that doesn't work I'll leave it to the creator of the rom....

I hope this works...
