[ROM][BETA] CyanogenMod 7 for the Droid X
I announce the first BETA of CyanogenMod for Droid X here on RootzWiki, this is complete and utter magic. I will be supporting this build here due to the process involved and I cannot be in 11 places at once.
The first thing you will need to do is go to this thread and downgrade to FroYo for Droid X due to only having v2.6.32 kernel support. Downgrade THREAD
After you have installed and flashed the 2.3.34 SBF you will need to do the following:
As for google apps, the 2.3.4 gapps have been reported to not be working on this build. I personally have had success using the gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip package. As for where to get them, I'll leave that up to you to find. :D
Please remember that this is a BETA, so it will be buggy!
Some things that are known to NOT work:
camera/camcorder, there have been reports that youtube is hit-or-miss, torch force-closes (flashlight).
Things that have been reported TO work:
audio playback, radio, 3g/data, calling, video playback, gps, accelerometer, notification lights, battery charging, usb connectivity, bluetooth, bluetooth audio, bluetooth calling, wifi, opengl, theme engine, market installs, dsp manager, maybe more?
Honestly I feel like this is in amazing shape!
Some other notes:1.This is CYANOGENMOD 7. Thus, it is GINGERBREAD. It boots off of the .32 kernel which shipped with froyo, but that's trivial (this is the reason for flashing back to 2.3.34).
2.So long as your other ROMs ran off of 2.3.34, you should be able to flash between them and CM7, as CM7 uses the same recovery from DX/D2Bootstrap.
3.Most importantly. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES INSTALL/RUN DROIDXBOOTSTRAP OR DROID2BOOTSTRAP WHILE RUNNING CM7. IF YOU IGNORE THIS YOU WILL HAVE TO SBF YOUR DEVICE. CM7 has been engineered to reboot into recovery by either a.) using adb to get into a shell and typing "reboot recovery", or b.) simply holding the power button until the global action menu comes up, and then selecting "Reboot", "Recovery". There is no need for DX/D2Bootstrap and running them will mess up the 2nd-init process.
I would also like to thank those who helped me get here:
The RootzWiki crew: birdman and b16
The CyanogenMod crew: so many to name that i'll just leave it at that
The Motorola Milestone crew: Skrilax_CZ for the awesome 2nd-init
My testers/supporters: robstemen, p3droid/TBH, aliasxerog, and synik4l
And all of you who have supported me for so long while waiting for this!
Now head on over and some CM7 for your X
Lastly, I have gotten many requests from people for information on how to show me gratitude for the work I have done, so if you would like to buy me some quality beer or some delicious green tea for this, there is a donations link in my signature below!
Thanks for all the support and here's to OUR DEVICES, OUR WAY!
The following method is not officially supported by CVPCS but has been tested by him and is included in the post.
This is an all in one installer that allows you to skip sbfing back to Froyo before installing CM7. If you have any questions about this method post them here not @ RootzWiki
All in One installer
This installer is in update.zip format, and can be installed regardless of what version of moto's kernel you are running (be it .340 or .596 or whathaveyou).
The steps are as follows (once the zip is on your SDCard and you are in recovery):
1.go to mounts and storage
7.go to install update from zip
8.select the update-cm-*-MONSTER.zip
10.install gapps (optionally)
YOU WILL GET A RADIO INSTALL ERROR IGNORE THIS AND RESTART PHONE
To install the Radio **** Must be done for GPS to work***
After intial install of CM7
1) hold down power button and select reboot and then recovery
2) in recovery select "install zip from sdard"
3) select "chose zip from sdcard"
4) find the Monster.zip and install
