    [Release - ROM] FLY - Droid Releases - AllDroid Public Board - [Release - ROM] FLY - Droid Releases - AllDroid Public Board - Forum

    Just released tonight...another 2.2 ROM. May be simpler to implement than the first one on My Droid World - Flash is listed as integrated, an ships w/one of P3Droid's wifi-enabled kernels.

    UPDATE on FLASH - 6/6/10: Evidently the flash install w/this ROM isn't working...you need to remove the flash apk from /Data/App (you can use Root Explorer) and then reinstall Flash: Get the Flash 10.1 Beta .apk here (thanks to Fab for link): http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/...html]Now that you have FROYO, How About Flash

    UPDATE 6/6/10: Birdman's Froyo ROM v.2 released. Minor fixes, and hq video recording is enabled.

    Clockwork Recovery versions:

    Thanks again to OMJ for the Clockwork Recovery versions!!

    SPRecovery version

    The download link in the quoted text below requires Sprecovery, not Clockworkmod recovery (which is the default recovery used by ROM Manager.)

    If you're using ROM Manager you can easily use ROM Manager to flash to SPRecovery and install this, then flash back to Clockwork recovery if you want.

    SPRecovery version steps:

    You will have to wipe data/factory reset if you are coming from a 2.1 ROM....if you're coming from another 2.2 ROM I'm not sure, but wiping data is almost certainly advised at this early point.

    The usual warnings/caveat flasher comments - backup anything on your phone (aside from your SD card, which won't be touched) that you want to save before doing this, and no one but you is responsible if you goomba anything on your phone.

    Steps below: I usually go to Settings/Privacy/Factory Reset on my phone and allow my phone to reboot after the reset and then boot into Recovery. After that:

    1. Extract the Nandroid folder from the zip - the folder name will be fly-BS-20100606-0133 (Use the "extract here" option rather than extracting to a folder you name).
    2. Copy that folder to your SD card into the /nandroid folder.
    3. Launch SPRecovery - Boot into recovery (slide out keyboard, hold "X" key and power button at the same time until recovery boots.
    3a. Select "Wipe data/factory reset"
    3b. Select "Wipe cache partition"
    4. Select"Backup/Restore"
    5. Select "Advanced nandroid restore"
    6. Select "Choose backup" and select the fly-BS-20100606-0133 folder
    7. Select "Perform Restore"

    I wonder if/when someone will port the wifi hotspot feature from the N1's 2.2...

    Do I need to rename this to update.zip before I transfer over or leave it the same name?

    Well, I've tried installing birdmans 2.2 Froyo, twice now. The first time I thought I did it right as i was redirected to the android set up screen. But, once my phone did all that it was still on 2.1 running the cyanogen.

    Nothing against that rom-- I LOVE it, but I want some froyo goodness, you know?

    I'm not sure where I'm going wrong here. Do I need to re-name the file to udpdate.zip?

    If I have the file in a folder on the sd card, will that be a problem (Right now I have it in a folder but I think I need to move it to the main section)

    I've wiped my cache twice already..

    What else am I missing here? *smh*

    The download is for sprecovery, not clockworkmod recovery. You need to extract it and place it in the folder: /sdcard/nandroid. Then do an advanced nandroid restore and choose the folder, & restore.

    I extracted it, and I am in the advanced restore, but I dont see the folder.. I see Restore Boot, Restore System Restore Data, Restore Cache Restore sd-ext

    it wont work with the recovery that you have. I am in the process of making it work with clockwork recovery I will post here when I am done.

    G.Armour You know you want to.

    It amazes me how sp recovery was the first recovery for the rooted Droid and so many people don't know how to use it...
    You have to have it for this, then extract the rom to your nandroid folder, boot into recovery, do a simple backup, wipe data and cache, then go to backup/restore and choose advanced restore. Choose the rom and restore it.. once it is finished, reboot and enjoy..

    Doesn't amaze me. Some hear that clockworkmod recovery is easier and they gravitate to it like flies. As if SPRecovery isn't "easy" enough. Oy-freakin'-Vey! ;)

    doesnt surprise me. Many people rooted after clockwork matured and right now its better than SPR

    Can you be more specific? What can you do that I can't do? Inquiring minds...
  12. OMJ

    OMJ Bazinga

    you dont have to rename zips to update, you can format /boot and /system without adb, partition the sd card, and with rom manager you essentially have a gui for it.
  13. G.Armour

    G.Armour You know you want to.

    Only thing that clockwork can do that sp can't is apply an update.zip from anywhere off your SD card and you don't have to rename it. Wow! Big leap there over. Nope, I've tried both, and clockwork just gave me bad issues. I'll stick with SPRecovery.

    This ROM runs PERFECTLY on my Droid. The first leaked ROM ran shit crap, but for some reason this one is super smooth. Thank you Birdman.

    Clockwork Nandroid of birdman's 2.2 rom

    unzip onto your sd card in the clockworkmod/backup folder

    Then nandroid restore it

    I ain't tried birdmans but the original one with a modified kernal did the trick for me.. About the first 30 min it was kinda sluggish. But it got faster and ain't bogged down since.

    How does this one compare with the original leak? It looks like its just a few apps removed.

    It already includes the kernels P3 created to patch the wifi issue and it already comes with flash installed.

    Install ROM Manager and flash Clockwork Recovery using it (you can flash back to SPRecovery from ROM Manager when you're done, so no harm no foul).

    Then boot into recovery and check out the Clockwork Recovery menus...

    I haven't used SPRecovery in a while, but you'll find a Partitions menu in Clockwork that provides options not available in SP, can't remember enough about SP to note all the differences. IMHO Clockwork is currently superior.

    Those are indeed the "hot" items about this ROM. Birdman also performed some optimizations...

    Aside from the simpler setup than the other 2.2 ROM released so far (http://androidforums.com/all-things...-2-froyo-brought-you-mdw-oc-flash-10-1-a.html), I can't run the other 2.2 ROM, so I'm hopeful that this one will be stable for me (and others that may have problems w/the first version.

    Just installed and rebooted - first boot takes a very long time, BTW...

    Wow...the last day or so has been nothing but a bummer for me - I can simply not run any 2.2 ROM...Birdman's and the first 2.2 ROM leaked by Miami just won't run...my Droid screen either won't wake up from sleep, or my Droid simply turns off.

    Running CM ROM, all is perfect, zero issues.

    Thinking I'm going to have to get my phone replaced...very frustrating, haven't seen anyone else w/issues like mine.

    Enjoy the ROM, folks...

    Clockwork nandroid works perfectly. Im currently in the first 10 mins with the rom. it runs slow because its reinstalling all of your apps automatically .. i went to the store and checked my downloads and there are like 15 things downloading and installing at the same time..

    Wrong. See OMJ's reply just above yours.



    Did you try the usual suspects? When I first loaded the ROM onto my phone, it would not let me sign in to my Google account, just told me there was no service and wanted me to add a WiFi location - which it would not work b/c I hadn't flashed the kernel yet lol.

    I had to reboot once to make it take effect, then I had to perform a battery pull after that, and finally all started working like it was supposed to.

    Yup - once it gets rolling, it automagically reinstalls all your apps.
