It truly marks a step towards the goal of our project *to bring slim & flawless firmware to the toro / maguro & to get the utmost out of your "phone!" A very big thank you to our beta testers & IRC channel community members / Liquid Smooth family, as well as all of you here at Rootzwiki!

[background=transparent]Liquid ICS v1.5 (Motorola Droid 2 )[/background]
[background=transparent]MD5: [/background]0fea6bc6ae05864aa8de1ded0e086e44​
[background=transparent]===========================================[/background]

Installation
  1. Ensure that you are on a Gingerbread kernel
  2. Make sure you are rooted and have Droid 2 Bootstrapper installed (or recovery via Rom Manager)
  3. Download zip and verify md5sum
  4. Boot into ClockworkMod recovery
  5. Wipe data/factory reset (if coming from test builds you only need to wipe cache)
  6. Install zip from sdcard (install zip from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard -> liquid_shadow-ics-v1.5.zip)
  7. Reboot and enjoy!
Thanks
  • The entire liquid team for the rom (and the top half of the OP)
  • Bikedude880 for the initial device trees
  • Jonman409 for picking up cm9 and doing sooooo much work to it. Without it ICS roms for this device would not be where they are.
  • Beanstown106 for getting me interested in porting this to begin with
  • Everyone who tested and provided feedback
Notes
  • Because of how our hardware acceleration is implemented it requires a whitelist for apps to recieve it. This will be updated to reflect CM9's list per release but if you wish to add to it you can manually by editing the hwui-whitelist.txt in /system/. To find the name to put into the file navigate to /data/app then copy the name minus the -1.apk. The app will recieve hwa after rebooting.
  • Because this is not an official port do not report issue's to the Liquid team, report them in this thread please.
  • I will not be updating this per beta release but instead will update per official release.
  • I have not tested every single aspect of this rom so if you notice a problem please bring it to my attention, preferably accompanied by a logcat

Very impressed with this rom. It's easily my favorite of the ics roms for D2. Smooth and really good battery life after 3 days. Thanks again!

I'm running this rom on my Droid 2, and it's great! Three issues I have though: First, if you open the keyboard, it doesn't make the screen stop rotating. Two, I can't turn off 180 degree rotation. The other, is if I try to open the tab screen in Chrome, it crashes back to the home screen, every time. Apart from that, I don't have a single problem with this rom. It's remarkably smooth, and non-laggy, and it's the only rom I've tried where Chrome actually works.

Well first soft-brick for this rom. Was on a .629 build and reverted/rooted to 608. I didn't reflash the 629 which may be the issue. Took quite a bit to get it into recovery but now I'm Rsding 608 again and hope it will unbrick.

Love it so far, although the stock browser seems kind of iffy. When I press the menu button(options) it takes a little bit to actually come up. That said, I am probably just gonna move on to Chrome anyways. Everything else seems really nice right now.

Just a question about activating, I had to skip it for now due to being on vacation in Europe. To activate it once I get back I just have to dial *228 right?

Also, has anyone else had this happen with the chrome browser..whenever I click the "Tabs" icon to go to my other tab it just crashes to the homescreen
I am back on cm9 now but I don't recall having that particular issue with chrome. I remember others having some issues though.
