This is for the DROID 2 on the FROYO KERNEL.

Hey guys, for those who don't know me, I develop for the Droid X. I was asked by multiple Droid 2 users to port 1.9.9 to the Droid 2. So here you go. This rom was made from Framework43's base, and MIUI-US files. Credit to them!

Due to the fact that I don't have a Droid 2, I will not be supporting this port! Any and all bugs are yours to deal with, sorry! Remember, along with 4 versions of new features, you'll also have 4 versions of new bugs. Search around the forums! There are plenty of answers.

WHATS DIFFERENT FROM 1.8.12
-All changes from 1.8.19 have been implemented: CHANGELOG
-All changes from 1.8.26 have been implemented: CHANGELOG
-All changes from 1.9.2 have been implemented: CHANGELOG
-All changes from 1.9.9 have been implemented: CHANGELOG

Enjoy!

DO NOT RESTORE WIFI SETTINGS FROM BACKUP APP, OR YOU WILL GET CONSTANT REBOOTS.

Instructions:
Put on SDCard
Boot to Clockwork Recovery, make a backup, and install zip from sdcard
Wipe Cache and Davlik Cache, no need to Wipe Data
Boot up and go to Superusers app (in Tools) and change ROOT Permissions to ON in settings

About to install this, but I just want to be sure: Is this safe to install over the D2 GB OTA update?

No, it clearly says froyo kernel in the instructions

Can you PM me the files you've changed to both DX and D2 from the Milestone release? I wanna get a buildbot going for D2G. Also have you had any luck with GB? I have a preliminary list of files for it.

Ugh. I need to lay off the wacky tobaccy. Time to SBF.

...can't believe I missed that.

I messaged DXC on Sunday about porting MIUI over, and I wanted to publicly say thank you to him for the time and effort put into getting it ported over. It's nice to have MIUI updated on the D2.

Yes, having someone more cooperative than framework at giving out info will be a huge benefit for all three devices.
It would be nice to have MIUI4D2 thrown into a build-bot to update weekly.

Framework was working on that... I dunno how far he got with his. I want the list just so I can get D2G going since I am the maintainer for that. Although I can support D2 at least with my overlay since I could make a D2 version to flash it back.

I've heard about the smaller on screen keyboard. Is there a fix that anyone has found for that? Also, has anyone experienced the random loss of service? Currently on 1.8.12 and that seems to happen to me nightly now (right around 8pm EST). Thanks!

Sorry, but knew to this. I just figured I could find it under the MIUI folder within the SD card, but I guess not. Can someone help with a thorough description of where to find and then place the file?

How is the battery life on this compared to cm7gb? I've been waiting on an miui for gb but its been a week since I flashed a new rom and I'm getting the shakes....

MIUI doesn't compare to battery life on CM7GB. MIUI is still on the Froyo kernel, and still doesn't sleep properly. However, it's still different and the best looking ROM, IMO.

i put up with the battery life and bugs because it's just so freaking cool. my wifi problem seems better after a full sbf back to froyo not just the tbh monster zip. i think i was running the radio from ota gb maybe that was the problem??
