Default Droid X2 Links: ROMs, SBFs, OTA updates, Mods and Scripts

When doing anything that requires root, you're ALWAYS responsible for any damage to your phone.
You can never blame others.
This has always been law.

sidenote: Tomsgt made bunches of how-to vids for the X2.

Custom ROMs

Froyo 2.2.2
Gingerbread 2.3.3
Gingerbread 2.3.4
Gingerbread 2.3.5
Gingerbread 2.3.6
Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4
Jelly Bean 4.1.1
SBFs
System Binary Files, these are the official stock ROMs which are flashed using RSD
OTA updates
When updating with a zipped OTA file, move to your sdcard (don't unzip) and update from stock recovery. Remember, they will update from one certain version to another certain version only.
Mods and Scripts

Added Liberty, but be sure to read the thread. It is still beta (but seemingly successful), you must be stock 2.3.4 and must wipe data, cache and dalvik (of course).

I've tried CorteX2 twice and Affinity once, and no luck with either. Maybe I was too far off-stock, what with all the scripts and all. Eclipse works really nice, and I'm loving Alien atm. But they weren't hard to find. They're all over the place, but XDA has them all. All the ones I can find, anyway.

edit: Oh, I think my issue with CorteX2 and Affinity was trying to flash from GB. They're Froyo.

Liberty is out of beta and on RootzWiki, link is adjusted accordingly.

My second day on Liberty and it's the best by far, imo. Far faster than any other ROM I've tried, and it's launcher is quick as hell, too. I haven't encountered any bugs so far. Highly recommend this one.

I think I'll give this one a try.

Yeah, this is a great ROM. Definitely better than the others I've tried. Very fast indeed. I've been using Go Launcher for such a long time, going to try to get used to not having it for awhile.

Well my phone has been unplugged for 12 hours now. I've made about 15 minutes worth of calls, uploaded a couple pics, spent over an hour reading through feeds, another hour or two of other various fiddling around, and I'm at 40% battery now. Not sure how that battery usage is, but it's more than fine for what I need it for.

I switched to the Molten ROM and I'm preferring that now, very similar to Liberty but more stock features. Battery doesn't drain as fast.

Molten is good but it seems each release has a lot of untested bugs discovered, but still love the work Ryman is doing on it.

I'm sticking with Eclipse. Currently running the official 1.2 release right now, but getting ready to try 1.3RC that just came out which has the Bionic camera in it. Actually, I went ahead and pulled the Camera.apk from the 1.3RC and installed it on my 1.2 Eclipse release and I like it.

Battery life seems good with Eclipse, but I'm also running Juice Defender Ultimate which has REALLY helped out with my battery. In fact, Saturday night I forgot to plug in my phone and had to be out of the house for the entire day on Sunday. By the time I got home around 4 pm, I was down to 14% battery which was about 20 hours without charging. This was with texting, playing games, downloading updates and listening to a radio broadcast of an NFL game (for about 10 minutes and then decided it was best NOT to do this as I was already down to about 30% at the time).

Not bad if you ask me.

Just flashed Alien ROM. Loaded smooth as butter. Seems cool reminds me of the Liberty ROM I had on on my Droid2.

Molten is my first Tom and love it. Smooth transition with TB. The first day the battery was so amazing, now so, not so much. Feels the same prior to rooting.

Well, just tried Liberty and I'm sticking with this one for now. I love Eclipse, but I love the customization you can do with this ROM. Couple this with the ROM Toolbox Pro app and I'm basking in complete glory as I can change things easily, such as boot animation, battery icon, etc. I know the ROM Toolbox works with any custom ROM, but still, coupled with Liberty, it just feels right for me, which is hard because I've been attached to Eclipse.

Hey guys. I am really new to Androids and I just recently learned about ROMS and rooting but I don't know how to install a new ROM. My phone is rooted using the OneClickRoot. I have a Droid X2, obviously. And I see that performance with Motoblur is SUPER slow compared to what I have seen on other phones that are just running the stock 2.3.4 Gingerbread.

How to I install a new Rom. I want to give the Naked ROM a try. It seems super simple and thats what I am looking for. Just want to use my phone for texting, calls, internet browsing, music, facebook, navigation, and Youtube. Don't care about overclocking or anything like that. I have a bad ass desktop for that haha!

Also, I need to know how to back up my phone completely in case the new ROM installation goes wrong and I can set it back to the factory defaults with blur on it.

Thanks :-)

To do a backup you need the bootstrap utility program available here:
Droid X2 Bootstrap with Chinese ROM Update Zip - xda-developers
Ignore the part about the Chinese ROM, you just need the APK file.
Once you install it you can check out the youtube video here on how to install it. Basically, you just install the apk file, click install recovery, then plug your phone into a wall charger and click "recovery mode". The phone will boot into recovery mode.

Then, you can select "backup and restore" and choose where you want to set your backups to either the internal or external SD card. I don't think it matters where, just remember where you put it. Once you do so the phone will perform it's thing and do the backup of your current system. You can then install your custom ROMs. To restore you go through the same process, just choose the right options. Use the vol up and down buttons to navigate and the power button to select the option.

Note: This program is also the easiest way to install the custom ROMs. You just save the ROM zip files to your sd card and then choose the option to install zip from SD card to do your ROM installation. It is always recommended to wipe data and cache first before installing a custom ROM.

Does Droid X2 have a Locked Boot Loader thus not allowing Custom Kernals?

Yes, but as you can see, there are quite a few ROMs to choose from that are constantly being updated, chief among them are Liberty, Eclipse and Molten.

I'm not sure what it is but I'm having a difficult time staying with a custom ROM. I am on Molten v2 now but it's like i'm itching to get back to stock. It's like I'm not happy with any of 'em... they take "too much" out. I'll probably flash back to stock before the weekend.. Anyone else feel the same way?

Not I. I can't stand blur for some reason. Make sure you post after a few days on stock with your impressions, though.

I was going back to stock because of "bugs" in some ROMs, but Liberty seems to be pretty bug free. Even with the recent "Google Music" issues (which affected everyone on custom ROMs and was easily fixed), I have stuck with Liberty.

I have yet to find anything "missing" that I need from Liberty.

I think this weekend I'm going to grab the Naked ROM and build one from scratch. I've been wanting to for a while now and finally have the time to tinker a bit with it.

Just started running Eclipse ROM, and so far I am loving it. Very smooth, no lag, quick, looks great. Everything runs great with the exception of a few downloaded games. For some reason Contract Killer: Zombies keeps crashing, but that could be due to the app itself being poor quality?

I'm not sure if it's the Molten or Eclipse ROM but I have had my time and date reset back to August 23rd two or three times now with the wrong time. The most reset time was last night when I was in the Black Friday BestBuy line and I switched from my extended battery to standard battery.

Has anyone else experienced this?

How would I be able to check?

Additional Info: My phone tells me it's 2:23 PM, Wed, August 24th right now.
Calls and Texts still come in but using the time the phone says.

I can still use the web but Google+ shows "Just Now" as the time.

Gmail isnt working. It says "No connection"

If I flash a new rom and it gives me correct info.

Finding an app as the culprit of an issue is a pain in the butt. It helps to know the permissions of the apps, but mostly it's trial and error and taking educated guesses about which app to play with first. The random issues are the hard ones to track down. Since I haven't seen other complaints about it, I would assume it was a bad flash, a bad app, or a good app that simply needs reinstalled.

edit:I've added about a dozen apps and removed about a half-dozen in the past day or so, and something is suddenly causing my homescreen to reload slow as hell. I've got my own app to track down...

lol I just did it not 20 minutes ago to prepare my phone for a new flash. It takes 5 - 10 minutes. Watch the percentage in RSD and make sure it's moving. Let it reboot a couple times, then after that if it still reboots time after time (I always make sure it reboots 3 times in a row), unplug it, pull the battery, go into your recovery, wipe data, then reboot. That should do it for you.

Default Flashing a ROM

I flashed Eclipse and also Liberty. I honestly prefer stock to either. I just wish I knew how to change my icons in the notification bar. That is all I want to do. I like motoblur (for the most part) Is there a way to do what I am talking about? Change the signal bars, battery(with percentage), wifi indicator and more.

Check out ROM Toolbox, it's in the market.

hey guys I have another question. Gotten the hang of changing roms and I have tried a bunch with no problem. I wanna give some of those 2.3.5 roms a try so I heard that I need to flash it back to the stock SBF 2.3.4 then flash the update over that. I am doing it now. wiped the cache and the dalvik cache and I downloaded the SBF2.3.4 and I am flashing it over eclipse, or trying to at least. It keeps getting stuck at the "installing update" part under the recovery. Whats going on?

I downloaded the Liberty zip, and unzipped it to my desktop. But when I go into recovery, what am I actually installing? There are so many items under the Liberty zip, which one am I actually installing? Or am I not extracting the files right on the first place?
