Forgive my noob question, as I don't have too much experience with Moto devices.

I was wondering if there was a way to spoof or sbf a Droid2 Global into a regular Droid 2.

I have a friend who doesn't use the global capabilities and would like to try out some regular D2 roms. Is this even possible? Thanks.

These phones have different radio transceivers, thus it's impossible to use D2 ROMs on a D2G.

There are some ported ROMs like Liberty and Fission (and you NEED a special version of those for the D2G), but other than that, no.

Not entirely true GY..... You can use froyo ones atleast with a little bit of effort. Basically just /system/lib/hw, build.prop, and ril has to be dropped into the rom and it /should/ work right....

That would be correct. The only things different are the radio and cpu. Now we can add the moto-ril.so from lib and of course grab the lib/hw folder (rename the libs to match the D2 ones that it is expecting) then finally edit build.prop to have the radio changes. For instance the d2g has 8 channels vs the 7 of the d2 and some other things. Now that should be the same whether it is GB or Froyo. With Froyo you will need a camera fix that I have to make it unmirrored.

Our MIUI is a port from the Milestone to Droid X to Droid 2 to Droid 2 Global lol. Yes we can definately run Droid 2 roms with a little modification.
