View Full Version : CyanogenMod 7 Ported To Motorola DROID X [Video]

Ladies and gentlemen, it appears that cvpcs (http://twitter.com/cvpcs) has achieved the impossible: he has thrown together (but not yet publicized) a build of CyanogenMod 7 that works on the Motorola DROID X!




http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5ZOLEHwfZA&feature=player_embedded


Naturally, since no one but cvpcs has the firmware yet, there are still a few kinks that need to be ironed out before the ROM goes public – for example, GPS, 3G, Bluetooth, and the camera/camcorder have not been proven to work just yet, and audio (including phone calls, speakers, the microphone, etc.) definitely aren’t functional at the moment. However, as our own Justin Case put it, "If it boots, it can be fixed."

"This was done using my recently new-found-knowledge of 2nd-init, which I will describe later in a blog post (don’t want to get into it here). This still runs on top of the original Motorola kernel though. I repeat, the bootloader is still locked, and you are still forced into using Moto’s kernels, but that doesn’t really prevent us from doing all that much."

There is already a rooted version of the OTA, just no way to root if you get the non rooted one. I don't really see the problem in going to that one.

There are many things you can easily change in cyanogenmod without any effort. It's all just built into the rom. Like the status bar widgets, there are like twelve different things you can set up there and I think you could have all of them. Plus, CM7 includes the theme engine so you can use the theme manager app to change pretty much everything on your phone without the need for metamorph :D
It's just the best rom I've ever used.

Well, here's to hoping that they come out with an installation variation that takes care of the SBF part. I don't have any problems with doing it -- though I haven't done it before, I would just prefer the simplicity of it.

Right now, I'm flashing Liberty v0.8. Had to do a data wipe instead of cache only. Gonna be a few minutes 'til I'm up and running again.

Looking forward to giving Cyanogen a try.

I wonder how much our well-known dev's, who've made our DX's so rockin' pre-CM, are working with the CM developer on this? I'd imagine there's a library of knowledge going into the development from what they've learned on other rom work, to possibly help CM4DX to become the "uber-rom'ness-extraordinarus" on the DX. :)

OK I read and understand most of this but kernels someone please help me understand. If the bootloader is locked and we can't change the kernel than what is the talk of custom kernels around here? Like overclocked or low voltage ones Chevy's?

What talk of custom kernels? I don't think I've seen anyone suggest that. From the link that 00TypeR posted, cvpcs says:


It's also important to remember that 2nd-init does NOT unlock the bootloader, nor does it allow you to run a custom kernel. It simply allows us to utilize the kernel that is there for our own means.

In the video, I realize it's the first boot, but it took a while. I read how 2nd-init works. The question I have... Does it do that every time it boots hence the long load time? Or does it kill "anything and everything anybody" once when installing the first time and then that's it?

Hopefully ICS does it for me. I've tried a bunch of other ROMs but none I've tried seemed polished enough and I've been coming back to gingerbread. From reviews I've read, ice cream sandwich should be amazing since reading something saying that all previous versions seemed like betas compared. Let's hope it's true, and it can transfer to the X without any translation losses!

For us it'll be gingerbread kernel unless Motorola updates us. It's complete aosp (android open source project) but customized. you have to remember its not a gingerbread kernel but the kernel Moto gave us for gingerbread.
