New to Alpha 3:

Not much: that's about it. Few added features that were added from October until January, but not much has really changed.
Wifi: Should be fixed from A2.9
Minor CM Enhancements.
Known Issues:

Recovery: Recovery has been fixed since Alpha 2, but flashing ROMs doesn't work. Restoring nandroids will work fine however.
Bluesleep/Deep Sleep: at it's current state, Alpha 2 doesn't have the bluesleep fix in it. This is because when it is enabled the proximity sensor doesn't turn the screen back on when it's supposed to also causing the phone call to kill audio. This problem can also occur by toggling bluetooth ("fixing the bluesleep"). The only known work around is to press the home button and swipe your finger across the sensor. Thanks to 32BitWhore for the help.
Stability: While not exactly an issue as CM10 is INCREDIBLY more stable than CM9, that doesn't mean that it's 100% yet. As of now, I've only had the broswer crash twice and the notification drawer flicker once. Your milage will vary.
Camera: At it's current state, the camcorder will not work like in CM9. I can't really do much about that for the moment or at all.
Some ICS/JB Apps Will Crash: This is noticeable on Chrome for example. This is because our drivers don't have External OES Textures. Basically that means when the apps want to draw using them (such as with Chrome's tab preview) the app will crash. This is the same problem on CM9/ICS. There is nothing we can do.
Data usage: Just don't ask me. I might get to it again one day. We'll see.
Installation:
This can be installed over CM7/CM9 or BLUR but you MUST wipe data and cache if from CM7/BLUR. (CM9 should work w/o wipe, but it's untested).
READ THE ENTIRE POST
Download the links provided below and put it on the External SD Card
Install the BSR (patched if on an AOSP based ROM, unpatched if on BLUR)
Reboot into the BSR
NANDROID
Install the CM10 zip from the SD Card
Install the GAPPS from the SD Card
MILESTONE X2 USERS ONLY: Install the WiFi patch from the SD Card
Wipe both DATA and CACHE if coming from BLUR or CM7 (no need to wipe Dalvik if you wipe both of these)
Reboot your phone
Enjoy a better phone experience
Instructions for BSR Recovery
-You need to use the hijack-boot.zip from alpha one before you install the cm7 patched BSR in order for it to work. Instructions for that can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=37433321&postcount=1519

A couple of notes.
- You must be on 2.3.4 to flash the Rom
- If you are already on Alpha 1 you must SBF to stock 2.3.4 before you flash Alpha 2 (Nandroiding back to CM9 or any ICS ROM first then updating to A2 has been confirmed to work... There can always be complications when doing it this way though, so be careful.)

It's so far above GB and ICS on our device I can't even explain it. There is a problem installing apps from the play store but DZK had this to say "it's a problem with ext4 and how our kernel doesn't have support for it. i'm working on forking over the appropriate repos to commit the changes to allow for sdcard apps. " So he says that should be fixed any day now. Running it for about 12 straight hours and have had 0 random crashes or reboots!

Alpha two should be here by the end of the night. Battery charging, BSR and app install errors are confirmed working.

just gotta say, how bout that Dev? Releasing alpha 2 about 24 hours after the initial release? Pretty impressive.

Kind of a noob here when it comes to CM. I have been running Eclipse for over a year now and I've gotten pretty good at working with the new releases of it. Well, I want to try this CM10. Number 3 of the OP says "Install the BSR (patched if on an AOSP based ROM, unpatched if on BLUR)". My question is what which BSR do I use and where do I get it?

GoCliffGo05
10-01-2012, 08:33 PM
First off if you are on eclipse then you will need to SBF to 2.3.4. Also if you are on eclipse then you should already have the correct BSR, its the same one you used to flash the ROM you are on now.. Here is a link to it again though http://www.markhm1972.com/MotorolaDroidX2/MOTODX2_Bootstrap_signed.rar

DX2 user here, I installed the ROM according to the directions. I updated from CM7. I keep getting an error when trying to click the android guy to set up the phone. It says "unfortunately, setup wizard has stopped".

EDIT:

I found a way to bypass the wizard, and CM10 seems to be great, however it seems to reboot when I try to access the backup option in the settings app. Also, the play store crashed a few times.

Did you figure it out? I'm not getting any crashes at all. You have to be on 2.3.4 and you have to install the ROM before the gapps or you will get force closes like that. I haven't used the backup option on the phone just titanium backup. Just to note the ROM comes with ROM manager but don't use it. Its just a CM thing but doesn't play nicely with our device. Were you able to get charge mode and CM7 recovery working?

Hi, there! I just upgraded from CM7, and I had a few questions:
1- What does this wifi patch actually do, and is it safe to simply install it from my BSR after I've already set up CM10, or will this cause problems? (Do I have to re-flash the rom?)
2- Is Alpha 2 available? I see it mentioned and referenced in the OP, but the download link still says Alpha1.
3- Who is Dragonzkilla, and how can I thank him?

GoCliffGo05
10-02-2012, 07:00 PM
WiFi patch is only for milestone users. If you need it just flash it after gapps along with the ROM. If you are already on the ROM and need it flash it in recovery.

Alpha two is not available yet but the alpha one does not come with charging mode or recovery so you need to install it manually using the instructions in the op or the second post link.

Oh, dear. I seem to be trapped in a bootloop of sorts. I didn't attempt to download the charge mode fix yet. I simply removed my phone from the charger when it was in the off state, and it now refuses to go past the:

T E C H N O L O G Y

screen. I fear I may have bricked my phone. I've removed the battery and pressed buttons in numerous combinations to no avail. Help would be greatly appreciated.

10-02-2012, 09:39 PM
Your phone shouldn't* be in a state that is beyond recovery. :) I need a little bit more info than that though. You said you unplugged your phone and now you get the M. But what ROM were you on before this? What Android version were you on (2.3.4 or 2.3.5?) What were you doing to your phone when you unplugged it? I'll need some insight before I can offer any real solution. Please be as detailed as possible.

After answering those questions go ahead and try something. Pull your battery and leave it out for a couple of minutes and then put it back in. Hold volume down and then hold power. Release power when the screen comes on but continue to hold vol down until "fastboot" appears at the top of your screen. Scroll down 7 times to "android recovery" and press volume up to select it. At the triangle screen press volume up and volume down at the same time to enter stock recovery. Scroll down to wipe data and use power to select it. See if that helps. We'll get you out of this, just need to figure out what's been done wrong.

I just updated last night from CM7, and everything went smoothly. I had been having buggy startups, but nothing I couldn't handle.
Something that really scares me is the fact that I was in bootstrap recovery mode right before it ceased to work. I was about to install the Wifi fix from SD card before I read that I really don't need it. I don't BELIEVE that I did anything in recovery mode, except for the fact that I booted into it and left it stationary for about an hour before rebooting. I'm finding it difficult to remember whether or not I actually was able to reboot from that or not. (I left it on the charger whilst attending to other things.) When I removed it from the charger, I got the M. I had been used to long bootups, but I began to suspect something after a few minutes. That's basically all I remember. Is there anything else I should let you know?
SWEET MOTHER OF GOD UPDATE: I had been trying to charge it (in vain) with a USB charger, as the M screen drained its battery. I just plugged it into the wall (which wasn't working before), and am in Bootstrap recovery. I want very much to attempt to reboot, but I'm hesitant. What can I do from here? Nandroid backup?
Edit: grew impatient; restored. I'll just reinstall the rom.

GoCliffGo05
10-03-2012, 01:39 AM
You installed CM10 over top of CM7 and then got into bsr? Had you installed the charge mode fix yet? If not then I don't know how you got in there. If you did install the fix then yea go ahead and nandroid and reboot. You shouldn't have hurt anything.... post back.

No, sir. I had not yet installed it. I just completely re-installed the rom, and am currently setting everything back up. I have no idea why this kind of error occurred, but hopefully the charging patch will prevent it from happening again.

GoCliffGo05
10-03-2012, 02:40 AM
OK been looking around. You got the M screen because your ROM was not able to hijack the boot process. The consensus is that you got into CM7 recovery the first time because of some remnants of the old ROM or you just got a weird glitch. Lol moral of the story is don't try and enter BSR again until you install the hijack-boot.zip.
Once that is installed install the cm7 patched BSR again using either root explorer or script manager or something along those lines.

I got it to work. CM10 works perfectly, but CM7 recovery doesn't. I got stuck in a bootloop also, but I held down the power and volume down buttons until i got the fastboot menu, then went to the boot thing(cold boot), and it started up.

GoCliffGo05
10-03-2012, 01:45 PM
I've used CM7 recovery multiple times successfully on the ROM. Made backups and flashed some minor tweaks with no problems. Did you install the hijack-boot.zip successfully? The way to check is after you install it, reboot then turn your phone back off and plug into the charger.

What were you doing that it's now stuck? If you can't get passed the boot logo then I'm sorry but the only thing that can be done is SBF back and reinstall it... Try wiping data in stock recovery first but it sounds like a SBF is in order.

Yeah I need to SBF, I was hoping it wouldn't be my only option. Thanks anyways, and to anyone reading CM10 works great, it was a user error that messed it up :P. And I was trying to get into the CM7 boot restore thing.

GoCliffGo05
10-03-2012, 10:47 PM
Lol no worries. I've SBF'd twice now because of user error haha so it's no worries. And just an update Dragonzkiller says that he will release Alpha 2 this upcoming weekend almost certainly so this won't be an issue for much longer.

10-04-2012, 12:09 AM
I'm absolutely floored to hear that. Just a question: Will I have to completely re-flash the new rom, or will it come in an update-form? (I'm beginning to re-download my essential apps, and I'll hold off on that if I'm just going to have to clear data again.)

GoCliffGo05
10-04-2012, 12:13 AM
That's not 100% clear yet. My guess would be that it should be like most other ROM updates. You just flash the alpha 2 zip then the gapps and wipe cache and dalvik cache and reboot. Nothing would be lost in that scenario, but like i said the Developer hasn't made anything that specific clear yet.

I've been running Alpha 1 since last sunday, here's a few things I've noticed:

The Good (things that I feel I should mention):

Calling works fine (some people seem to have had some issues)
WiFi works perfectly
Quite stable, maybe 3 or 4 full crashes in the past week (for a first release alpha? excellent)
SBF works just fine, if needed
The Bad (bugs and the like):


A few times all data (including 3g) seemed to cease to work, reboot fixed it.
Default video player (for browser streaming) seems unhappy with MP4s and video in general.
Facebook app crashes after a few moments of scrolling
Email (the default app) crashes after opening, scrolling or not
Flash seems spotty where I've encountered it
Browser isn't super stable, quite a few crashes with heavy use
Battery life is (in my experience) much worse than stock, have to coax 14 or 15 hours out of it with minimal use.
Only happened once, but: I had my phone on the AC charger for the entire night, alarm woke me as expected, took the phone off the charger and it was dead half an hour later with absolutely zero use other than idling.
Things I haven't mentioned include those that have claimed to have been fixed in Alpha 2.

GoCliffGo05
10-05-2012, 10:24 AM
Nice write up. The one thing I can mention is that people who have been having the calling issue are people who have flashed the blue sleep fix. I had this issue too but once I SBF'd and flashed the ROM without it I haven't had one problem. Like you said though, most everything you've mentioned as a 'con' should be worked out in A2. :)

I'm not exactly new to this, but for some reason it doesn't recognize any of my media on my external or internal SD card. I tried moving the files into both of their appropriate locations in both and running the media scanner and still nothing. This is the really only major flaw I've found in it so far.

Your internal card is sdcard0 and your external card is sdcard1... have you compensated for that?

Otherwise this should be resolved in alpha 2... haven't come across anyone with the same problem though.

Have you moved them to the music folder on sdcard0?

You could use root explorer or plug into a computer and just make sure your music files are moved to one of those two locations. Try sdcard0 - music first and see what happens.

Do you have Titanium Backup installed? If so, how do you feel about a SBF and a clean start? DZK is busy and I really don't know what to tell you because I can't find anyone who can recreate your specific issue.

Edit: Just to tell you, you could try and reflash the rom and the gapps wiping only cache and dalvik BUT a lot of people have problems with that and end up having to sbf anyway. If you want to retry flashing first, backup anything you want to keep.

If you SBF and start over, try the music before you do any sort of customizing to your ROM.

Madden
10-06-2012, 09:15 PM
I'll SBF it here in a minute, I haven't really done any customizing to the ROM so far though so I'm not sure if that's the problem. We'll see though, hopefully that's all it is

GoCliffGo05
10-06-2012, 09:26 PM
Maybe something just installed wrong, I don't understand why all of a sudden yours would act up like that. As far as I know there haven't been any other reports of this... Good luck, and definitely post back and let us know.

Madden
10-06-2012, 10:36 PM
So after SBF'ing everything seems to be back to working as it should, however one thing I noticed with this rom is how quickly it drains my battery. It started out with a full charge and after 4 hours of being in stand-by it's already completely drained. I just can't live with that.

So to sum it all up, this is a fantastic rom for just being an alpha build and should be flashed at least once just to experience it. However it still has a few bugs to iron out before it's perfect.

GoCliffGo05
10-06-2012, 10:45 PM
That's good to hear. I don't know what your battery issues are about though. I get about 14 hours of moderate use with it. How old is your battery and how heavily do you use the phone? If you play a lot of music that could be the cause.

Madden
10-06-2012, 10:50 PM
I actually just bought the phone brand new a few days ago, and I didn't overclock it when I began. Although now that I think about it, it wasn't charging when it was plugged into my computer so I'd bet that's what the problem was. Damnit, now I have to re-flash this rom again. :p :facepalm:

Haha been there. Anyway there is no real way to over clock the x2. Most if its sister phones can be (including the X) but not ours. Anyway DZK has been talking about releasing Alpha 2 for like a week now haha... we are all getting a bit impatient. A2 will be even better.

Edit: wait a minute why do you have to redo it? Cuz the battery died? DZK says if your battery dies plug your phone into the wall charger and hold the power button until it comes back on... try that first.

Hopefully it's released soon, this rom is easily one of the most intriguing one's I've ever used so I can't wait to see it reach it's full potential.

Also again thank you for your time, I've been on other forums where no one ever got back to me. Means a lot :cool:

edit: I have to re-do it because I already SBF'ed over it and it's back on stock right now. It won't be for long though lol

Ok I know I have been teasing Alpha 2 for like a week now. Haha sorry about that, just excited. I want to just post this to keep everyone in the loop with whats going on.

- Last night DZK was having a random sound issue with Alpha 2. Everything was working normally then all of a sudden no sound. He did his thing and even ran a MD5 sumcheck on the working version vs the non working version and they matched... so he had to work around *whatever* was going on.
- He now announced that sound is working normally. He is being pretty tight lipped about features but he did have this to say. 1.) A2 will include a new WIFI Module that connects really fast. 2.) Sound is definitely fixed and 3.) A few little surprises will be in there too....

That's the latest and he keeps saying "very soon" for a an ETA...


Edit: Madden it's been no trouble at all. Glad it's all worked out for you and definitely check in periodically for updates!

I JUST got a DROID X2 today. I'm upgrading from a OG Droid running Project Elite 6.5 that was having trouble running some newer games -- serious make-or-break stuff like Draw Something and SongPop. Anyway, I thought I'd give myself an early birthday present so I got the DX2 off Craigslist.

Recently, I found my wife an upgrade for her LG Ally, a Droid 3. Although I was interested on a ICS/Jelly Bean ROM for her new device, I didn't want to expose her to a potentially buggy experience...she doesn't really have the patience for it.

Then, I got the Droid X2 and was excited to see that JB is a little further along for it, as far as I can tell. Now I just have to decide whether I want to start the flashing process now (maybe tomorrow), or wait until Alpha 2 is released...

This'll, somehow, be my first CM experience, too...so I'm excited.

Mostly thinking aloud...any feedback is appreciated. First DroidXforums post.

If you have some patience I would wait for Alpha 2. There are a couple of bugs on this one now (as stated all over the thread) that are known to be resolved in A2... however if you have some free time and get bored flash away haha.

Do you have any experience SBFing a phone? And are you familiar with how the flashing process is done on the x2?

Not to stray off topic or anything, but I went ahead and SBF'd again but when the stock rom loads up and attempts to program the phone it keeps pressing 1 and not allowing it do it's thing. I've tried factory reset, cache cleared, and multiple SBF's. I'm really hoping I didn't just turn my X2 into a really expensive paperweight.

Edit: Now it seems to go through, I need to have more patience with things before posting about them..

When you turn the phone on after the sbf it won't program automatically? If not cancel it and dial *228 and choose option one. If that's not what you mean post back I have something else you can try.

Edit: haha OK. For future reference to start the x2 without activation turn your phone off. Hold volume down and power until fastboot appears at the top of your screen. Then use volume down to scroll down to Start Android No BP and press volume up to select it and when it starts up it wont ask you to activate so you can easily root without Google backup getting in your way. Then whenever you are ready just dial *228 option 1.

Thanks!

I read the FAQ and glanced at a couple of other links in your signature...so only moderately informed and very inexperienced. I only flashed...never SBF'd...but I'd be willing and am comfortable learning as I go. I've flashed Velocity (LG Ally) and Project Elite (OG Droid)...but not done much else, if that tells you anything. Fooled around on my wife's DROID 3 before I gave it to her, but mostly trying to correct a hardware(?) problem with the camera...luckily, Motorola honored the warranty and replaced it in about a week even though I wasn't the original purchaser.

Think I'll take the plunge and try out what is available...but maybe hold off a few days before backing up my OG Droid to transfer everything over to the DX2 as my primary phone. I can always use A2 if it comes out before I switch...or, upgrade after it arrives, I guess. Really, I only need camera (want)/SMS/Voice/Data...and I think those things are basically working in the current release.

Everything you mentioned works with a few minor issues. SMS and MMS are fine. Voice works, and data works but there is no data monitoring. The camera works but you can't see what you are shooting until you actually take the picture (fixed in A2.)

On your phone go to settings - about phone and tell me what android version you are on? You may not have to SBF.

2.3.5 is the latest you're correct. However to run CM10 (or Cm9 or CM7) you must be on 2.3.4. You will have to sbf to get there. You can either follow the links in my signature or check the drojd x2 sections for an EZsbf method.

I just flashed the rom for the first time. Is there any known issue with battery reporting? My phone was off charger for about 14 hours (over night and some of the next morning, so almost zero use) and it still said 100%. I rebooted the phone after a little messing around, and then it said 90%.

If I didn't let the screen shut off, surfed the web constantly, and let music play for about an hour straight, and I was still unable to get it down below 80%.

I know I shouldn't be complaining, but I can't help but think that something is wrong with battery reporting. This is my first time with this phone at 2.3.4 (always had 2.3.5 stock before) and I'm wondering if it could have anything to do with the known battery issues with the 2.3.4 kernel, and this particular fix:

Some people have reported slight battery reporting issues. Nothing major. I would just turn it off and give it a full charge and turn it back on. I typically get about 14 hours on it with moderate use.

About Netflix, yea that is a known issue and as of right now there seems to be no way to fix it. Our phones weren't originally meant for JB.

Use titanium backup to protect all your apps and their data... or if you have a nandroid of an cm9 you can restore that then install A2 on top if it without a wipe... some people have confirmed this.... safest way is to use titanium though and sbf to install fresh.

Ok then it's no problem... Did you install CM7 patched recovery on A1? If so open CM7 System Recovery from your apps and press install recovery. Once it installs you can plug in and press recovery mode from within the app or do it the way you used to. Both should work fine.

What's the old recovery? After you installed the Hijack-boot.zip you should have placed the CM7 recovery.apk (the same one you would use if you were on CM7 and can still be downloaded from the CM7 thread) on your external SD card and then installed it using root explorer or script manager (or something similar.) Once you installed the apk it will show up in your app drawer as "CM7 System Recovery."

I'll post after I determine how bricked my phone is. I just decided to abandon the 3 or 4 apps I installed.
I flashed CM10 A2.
Then I flashed the Gapps.
Then I wiped Data.
Then I wiped Cache.
Then I rebooted.
Then I FREAKED OUT BECAUSE I WAS GETTING THE M OF DEATH.
Then I calmed down because the nifty little CyanogenMod wheel started turning.
Then I started to worry because the wheel was taking forever.
Then I cried tears of joy because it was welcoming me and prompting me to choose a language.
Then my older brother came in and changed the language to Romanian.
Then, after ten minutes, I finally found the setting to change it back to English.
Thank you kindly for your time, and I will be enjoying the new functionality of the camera. I must report, however, that upon startup, the camera experiences a great deal of delay. (Almost as much lag as my laptop trying to play Deus Ex on full graphics.)
Once again, thank you for being so very helpful.

For the record, I SBF'd (from CM10 A1 -- on phone less than 24 hours), then tried to nandroid restore (had issues -- didn't try very long because my backup was of, basically, walking through the initial 'add account' process and deleting a few app shortuts/widgets). No luck, but I was able to root, install recovery, then flash CM10 A2 with no issues. I think I had to factory restore after flash. No other hiccups.

In a day or two, I'll titanium backup my OG Droid (still my everyday phone) and restore to CM10 A2 -- loving it so far!

First thing is to make sure you are on rooted 2.3.4. Go to Settings - About phone and under Android Version make sure it reads 2.3.4. After that checks out make sure you are rooted. Easiest way to root 2.3.4 is Pete's one click method (let me know if you don't have that or can't find it.) Once that checks out I'll walk you through the install.

Gmail and Facebook are known issues. This is a result of trying to run JB without the proper kernel and drivers... not much we can do about it at this point (or ever unless we find a way to unlock the bootloader or someone gets kexec working.) Try using the browser for Facebook and gmail as it tends to work better. Also the stock email app seems to work better.

Posted by Dragonzkiller: Bluesleep/Deep Sleep (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1912280#): at it's current state, Alpha 2 doesn't have the bluesleep fix in it. This is because when it is enabled the proximity sensor doesn't turn the screen back on when it's supposed to also causing the phone call to kill audio. This problem can also occur by toggling bluetooth ("fixing the bluesleep"). The only known work around is to press the home button and swipe your finger across the sensor.

What you typed seems exactly correct. I was on A1...tried to nandroid restore to 2.3.4 backup (in my post, I wrote that I SBF'd THEN nandroid restored...I honestly don't recall why I would have done that). I don't remember what error I got...I think something like a boot loop where I was unable to access anything but RSD Boot. That is when I decided to SBF instead of worrying too much about it since my nandroid backup was basically of a vanilla 2.3.4 install with my account, rooted, and with System Recovery installed. It could have been operator error. I feel like I was following steps that I read through some link, but I may have missed something.

On another note, I've been on A2 since and love it. Having an issue accessing my gallery pictures from external SD (actually, gallery doesn't show the couple of pictures I've taken which went to internal memory, either). Cleared cache. No luck.

Apollo doesn't see my music, either, and I don't see a way to 'point to' them. I installed Astro FM and verified that I can browse to the files on the external SD...so I know they are there and properly accessible. I didn't check and see if these were 'known' problems. I'll probably try 3rd party apps (normally, I use camera 360 and can find some other music app) and see if they have the same trouble.

You are the second person to report not being able to see media... if you go to settings - developer options - launch tools - media server there is an option to scan the SD card for media... see if that helps. If not then I will report the issue to the dev.

About how long is your battery lasting? You could try going into settings and turning 'force CPU rendering' on and also in developer options you can change the process limit to a lower number. Some apps will just crash on us because we don't have a true JB kernel or drivers. Which apps are you having trouble with?

Thanks for the tips!

_Settings_

No dice. I ensured that settings > advanced > 'Protect SD card' was not checked. Additionally, I went to settings > developer options > launch tools > media provider and clicked 'scan sd card'. It says 'scanning /storage/sdcard1', but doesn't seem to finish or display any useful information. An option to 'Insert 20 albums' causes a 'Unfortunately, Dev Tools has stopped' notice with an 'OK' button. My external SD card is called sdcard0 (by ASTRO).

_3rd Party Apps_

N7 Media Player: Saw nothing by default. I was able to use a setting to 'filter media folders'...when browsing to filter folders, I was able to see that my sd card/media/music/ folder had 500 songs in it...but specifying to play that folder only still didn't help.

Camera 360: This app (without special settings) allows me to view past photos taken with Camera 360, but not other files. I think this is by design for this app.

Dropbox: I use the 'automatically upload photos' option and it seems to be working whether I shoot with the bult-in Camera app or the Camera 360 app.

Astro File Manager: Shows internal and external SD cards and allows me to browse both. I can also verify that 'Camera' and 'Camera 360' are storing new pictures in the same place (external SD card, sdcard0) that existing pictures are located from last phone. Additionally, from here, I found a music file and clicked 'play with' for both Apollo and N7 -- Apollo didn't work at all, N7 played the file, but still shows 0 files in the library. Can't 'next track' or anything. Filter still set properly to my music folder, but no available content except explicit play through Astro.

_Built-in Apps_

Gallery: Shows photos I've taken with either the camera 360 app or the stock camera app, but no 'older' photos. Locks up (seemingly) when I try to go to 'settings'.

Apollo: Shows no music and shows no way to specify directories.

Another thing...I just let my battery drain to absolutely nothing. Then charged it all night...and have been using it moderately today and heavily for an hour and it still has full battery. Awesome!

That is a glitch.... reboot because it is not at 100% for sure. This is the same battery reporting bug that affected us on 2.3.4 anyway.

Thank you for all the insight. Did you see my last suggestion going to settings - advanced and switching to external? If I missed that, sorry. This one is going to have to be left up to the Dev. Most people are not having this problem but the few that are can't seem to find anything in common as to why... I've let DZK know and the best we can do at the moment is assume its a bug. If I hear anything back from him I'll pass it along.

You could always PM him too with your problem and all the things you have tried to do. Maybe him hearing it from multiple people will convince him to look into it further.

Hi. I've just recently updated my DX2 from Verizon's 2.3.4 to CM10 A2. One of the problems that I have been experiencing is that the phone does not always start charging when I plug it into a charging block. I haven't been able to find a pattern to it. Also, it seems that the battery drains much faster than it did with 2.3.4. I tried to pin down the cause using BetterBatteryStats but couldn't find it. I know that battery life has been an issue for some. In any case, I found an article that mentioned that it might be necessary to go into the BSR menu and obliterate the battery stats. So I have two questions:
- Is this a good idea?
- dragonzkillers upgrade instructions say that you should use the unpatched BSR when upgrading from Blur. But I get the impression that I will need to upgrade the BSR again to be able to access functions like 'obliterate battery stats'. Is this true and if so, how do I go about it without messing up my current setup?

TIA from a relative noob

Ok about your charging issue, that shouldn't be a CM10 issue... I personally havn't experience this and I can say that I have had no one else say they have this problem either... Are you using the stock cable that came with your phone and did you ever experience this issue on any other ROM/ stock setup?

The "poor" battery life is because we are trying to run JB on a device that isn't meant for it. We do not have the correct kernel or drivers for it to run at optimal efficiency. There is nothing that can be done about it at this point. And I think you are referring to "wipe battery stats" in BSR which will also do nothing for us. To sum it up, battery life is just something we are going to have to live with for a while (if it ever gets fixed.) One thing you can do is download Titanium Backup and freeze all the apps and processes you don't/wont ever use and it will clear a slight amount of battery life up for you.

Lastly yes, since you came from stock 2.3.4 you used the regular BSR. Once CM10 is flashed however you will have to use the CM7 patched BSR. If you have the normal BSR (same one you used to flash CM10) installed then uninstall it. Download the patched BSR from here MOTODX2_Bootstrap-CM7-signed.apk (http://www.mediafire.com/?pzz4413k6wggcao) and then place it on your external card and install from there.

Thanks for the quick reply. I've sort of seen most of what you said in various places, but it very helpful to see it all explained so well in one place (and by someone that I know knows what he is talking about). As far as the charging problem goes, I don't think it started until soon after I flashed CM10. I believe you when you say that it isn't CM10 related, so it mostly likely the timing is just a coincidence. I swtched to a different cable that was plugged into a different charger port and it worked fine - for a while. Now it is sitting here charging with the original cable. I've tried the cables in my wife's tablet and they work fine. IDK, maybe the micro-USB socket in my phone is starting to have problems :-( Thanks again.

GoCliffGo05
10-11-2012, 09:50 PM
It's no problem! :) You'd be surprised how much cables make a difference for our phones. Always try and use the one that came with it for anything important. Anyway, you could always try to check and see if the charging issue is somehow related to the ROM (unlikely but you never know.) You could make a nandroid and then restore a nandroid of stock 2.3.4 (if you made one) and check to see if you have the same issue and then just restore the backup you made of CM10. That seems like a lot of work though, so as long as you can successfully charge your device I wouldn't worry about it. One thing to note however is if the port is starting to come loose/go bad then you could have a problem in the future trying to SBF or transfer files if it gets worse.

That glitch got me. I was so excited...then my alarm didn't go off due to complete discharge, apparently. Honestly, it seems to have drained faster when displaying full charge than normally, when accurately reporting charge level. Oh well, things happen.

I did try the 'advanced > external' thing, too. I'd hate to complain to the dev (since so much awesome work has already been done), but I guess it won't hurt to inform him. I'm happy to help troubleshoot in any way possible. I haven't tried a different sd card...maybe I'll give that a go.

Oh, streaming music (Google Music) seems to work with no trouble...this isn't particularly surprising, but I thought I'd mention it.

Thanks!

I don't know if this will be useful to anyone, but I thought I would toss in my experience with the battery reporting 'glitch' with the hope that it might help lead to a solution. My typical routine is to make sure that I charge my phone to 100% percent before I go to bed, start Tunein Radio on a 1 hour timer and go to sleep. Normally when I would wake up, my battery would be down to about 90%. This was very consistent. After I flashed to CM10, I would wake up to find the battery gauge at 50%. I know that CM10 uses up the battery more quickly than stock, but that seemed to be a bit excessive.

The other day I came home and my battery was at 40%. I plugged it in for about 20 minutes and then tried to restore an app with Titanium Pro (which promptly froze up). I finally hit the power button and did a restart. WHen it was back up, it showed my battery as being at 100% charge. This was obviously wrong, so this time I shut it down completely, then powered it back up. Once it was up, it then correctly (I hope) showed the battery to be a 40%. I know that this doesn't really mean anything, since I wasn;t able to test it a number of times in different ways to establish a pattern, but it is one more datapoint that might be helpful.

Thanks for the info. I imagine DZK will eventually fix this issue by using battery stats from 2.3.3 like he did on previous versions of CM. As of right now it just isn't that important because a reboot fixes it. He'll iron out a few of the more "major" problems and then get around to this one day.

Guys, I installed this rom and really like it. Here's my issue if someone can help though. Background: I installed CM 10 onto my SBF'ed Droid X2 2.3.4 without any issue. I have no issues until I try to reboot or go into recovery(green screen). I have correctly installed system recovery, as well as busybox and made nandroid backup of stock-rooted 2.3.4.

HERES THE PROBLEM: When I reboot, I've gotten a boot loop at the Motorola boot screen and cannot get out and cannot get into system recovery(with or without a usb cable plugged into the wall). Ive read throughout this thread that some combination(or individual) of the following needs to be installed:

1. MOTODX2_Bootstrap_signed.apk
2. MOTODX2_Bootstrap_CM7_signed.apk
3. hijack-boot.zip

Do I install these in any particular order? Do I install the zip immediately following install of CM10 then GAPPS? Any ideas?

TY in advance guys.

GoCliffGo05
10-17-2012, 10:17 AM
You are installing alpha 2 correct? The hijack-boot.zip is no longer needed as that was for alpha one so don't bother with it anymore. Secondly it sounds like you are installing the regular system recovery. When you install it does it say 'System Recovery' in your apps or 'CM7 System Recovery'? You want to make sure you install the CM7 one. It can be found in the CM7 thread.

Proper steps for install are
1. Start with 2.3.4
2. Root
3. Update SU and BusyBox
4. Install regular System Recovery
5. Flash CM10
6. Flash GApps
7. Wipe data
8. Wipe cache
9. Reboot
10. Install CM7 System Recovery

Just got a NIB DX2 yesterday, shipped with 2.3.5. Saw this A2 was out, and having lots of experience with ICS ROMs on my old DX figured I'd dive in. Followed the instructions and got CM10 loaded without incident, and it's feeling pretty awesome. Figured I'd share a few things I'd observed after 24 hours:
In addition to the apps that don't work right, I'll add Dolphin Browser, it FC's after just a few minutes of use.

I've also had issues with phone calls -- at 2 seperate times during today I've had audio loss - the remote end can hear me, but I can't hear them. This happens consistently until I reboot, doesn't matter if I made or received the call. After the reboot, it's fine again for a while (i guess). I haven't seen this mentioned by anyone on this thread.

The ROM is pretty much 'stock', I've only made one modification to swap the SD Mount points in the vold.fstab file.

Battery life seems like it's good for about 14 hours, as mentioned earlier.

Unfortunately, making reliable phone calls is important to my use of the phone, any other reports of this, or ideas what the issue might be?

Thanks for all the work on this, it's pretty impressive sofar.

The phone call issue is known by the developer and should be fixed in the next update. It has something to do with Bluetooth and deep sleep.

Dolphin browser has been giving some people fits also, so like you said pretty save to.say it is a problem app.

New JB GApps to download.

-All apps updated to 4.1.2 versions.
-Google Play Store updated to 3.9.16.
-Should be backwards-compatible with 4.1.1.
-Does NOT contain the leaked Gmail with pinch-to-zoom. GApps do not include -leaked/test versions of Play Store applications, especially when the signing key differs from the Play Store version(s).

The date of the file is 20121011

This does not fix the FC issues and I haven't noticed anything real new in using them. Just remember if you are already on CM10 you will either have to SBF or restore a nandroid of another 2.3.4 based ROM then reflash CM10 with the new GApps to get them to work. You can not simply flash them on CM10. If you are already on CM10 and are having only a few problems I would just say skip the new GApps until further updates to CM10 but they are out there if anyone wants them.

This is just fantastic work,. Works well, looks AWESOME. Thanks for porting it WITHOUT the nav buttons at the bottom to maximize screen space as we have hardware buttons (making this one of the nicer jellybean installations I've seen. It fixes my CM7 wifi issue (wifi connects flawlessly and in microseconds) and overall I couldn't be happier EXCEPT.......
.....
netflix doesn't work. So I have to sbf and return to cm7 (and huddle and cry in a corner.)

The DX2 is among the more ignored devices by motorola which is actually incredibly powerful and sleek. Here's hoping they unlock the bootloaders as they promised so some of us can simply remove blur and enjoy AOSP without roms (so we can continue to program the phone as usual) or that development can continue on these products with everything working for jelly bean.

Its a very nice ROM. Unfortunately Moto has stated no interest in unlocking the bootloader for us. Seems to me this device is just behind them and not worth their time anymore.

You can add the on-screen buttons with a mod if you want so its always an option. Some people like it more than others. DZK seems to be the only main Dev left. Others are working on ports for things like Paranoid Android on JB but its all built off if DZKs works. Enjoy it. :)

Still having my same issues with Media and Pictures giving me some trouble. Can take pictures, though...but gallery doesn't show anything but what the Camera has taken.

Can't access my music (a pain).

I did notice this quote from the front page:
"Note: Internal SD is now /storage/sdcard0 and External SD is now /storage/sdcard1"

I checked and my storage drives are backwards. My External is sdcard0 and my Internal is sdcard1.

Interestingly, Astro lists them as Local Storage 1 (which is sdcard1) and Local Storage 2 (which is sdcard0).

I also never contacted the dev because I feel like my problems are small and don't warrant his time.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Thanks for the tips!

_Settings_

No dice. I ensured that settings > advanced > 'Protect SD card' was not checked. Additionally, I went to settings > developer options > launch tools > media provider and clicked 'scan sd card'. It says 'scanning /storage/sdcard1', but doesn't seem to finish or display any useful information. An option to 'Insert 20 albums' causes a 'Unfortunately, Dev Tools has stopped' notice with an 'OK' button. My external SD card is called sdcard0 (by ASTRO).

_3rd Party Apps_

N7 Media Player: Saw nothing by default. I was able to use a setting to 'filter media folders'...when browsing to filter folders, I was able to see that my sd card/media/music/ folder had 500 songs in it...but specifying to play that folder only still didn't help.

Camera 360: This app (without special settings) allows me to view past photos taken with Camera 360, but not other files. I think this is by design for this app.

Dropbox: I use the 'automatically upload photos' option and it seems to be working whether I shoot with the bult-in Camera app or the Camera 360 app.

Astro File Manager: Shows internal and external SD cards and allows me to browse both. I can also verify that 'Camera' and 'Camera 360' are storing new pictures in the same place (external SD card, sdcard0) that existing pictures are located from last phone. Additionally, from here, I found a music file and clicked 'play with' for both Apollo and N7 -- Apollo didn't work at all, N7 played the file, but still shows 0 files in the library. Can't 'next track' or anything. Filter still set properly to my music folder, but no available content except explicit play through Astro.

_Built-in Apps_

Gallery: Shows photos I've taken with either the camera 360 app or the stock camera app, but no 'older' photos. Locks up (seemingly) when I try to go to 'settings'.

Apollo: Shows no music and shows no way to specify directories.

Thanks, again, for helping out with this / looking into this. Let me know if I can assist in any way.
For the record, I've been using android music player(icon of a music note in the market) every night for hours with no issues.

Rookie question. I was using my phone this morning when it suddenly vibrated and went dead. When I plug it into an AC charger, the LED blinks and I get the 'M' screen (which is what I am supposed to see, I think?). I let it charge for a couple hours, unplugged it, batttery pull and it won't turn on. I know that 2 hours isn't enough time to fully charge the battery, but it seems like it should be long enough to allow the phone to boot.

Since I have never charged it when it wasn't already booted, I don't know what it is supposed to look like when it is charging pre-boot. I want to make sure that what I am doing really is charging the battery, rather that sitting here looking at it while it is just hung. Basically, I am just confused. TIA for your assistance.

If you are only seeing the M then no something is wrong. Did you pull the battery and see if it will turn back on? It wont charge from that screen. You installed A2 on top of 2.3.4 correct and installed the Patched BSR afterwards?

I pulled the battery and tried to start it while not plugged in - nothing. And yes, 2.3.4 -> A2 + patched boot loader. It had been working fine until this morning. Normally it would still have plenty of charge by morning, but who knows if the battery gauge was accurate. I'm just assuming that the battery is dead, since that was the first thing to come to mind when it shut down.

10-29-2012, 11:42 AM
Hold power and plug it in while still holding... hold it for a while and see if you get in. Normally with the phone off you should see the BSR screen when plugged in, not the M... did you press install recovery after you put CM7 patched BSR on there?

Also see if you can get into stock recovery. With phone off hold volume down and then hold power. When the screen turn on release power but continue holding volume down until "fastboot" appears at the top of your screen. Use volume down to scroll 7 times to Android Recovery. Press volume up to select it. Now at the triangle screen press volume up and volume down at the same.time to enter recovery. The battery should charge from in there.

And many thanks for getting me back in again.

10-29-2012, 12:20 PM
Ok great! What it sounds like is you did install the CM7 recovery but you didnt open it and press "Install Recovery." Go ahead and do that now and and then with your phone plugged in press recovery mode (2nd option.). Once you do that this is what will happen. If your phone is off and you plug it in it will automatically take you to the Bootstrap Recovery screen. The battery will charge from in there but you wont see the normal battery icon. You can however change that if you would like. With your phone on open the app "CM7 System Recovery" and you will see three options. 1. Install Recovery (this is what you forgot to press I think.) 2.) Reboot recovery (with your phone plugged in when you press this it will reboot your phone into recovery.) and 3.) charge mode (this will make it so when your phone is off and you plug it in you will see the battery charging icon again. This will stay like that untill you press recovery mode again and I personally never use charge mode in case something goes wrong and you need to boot into recovery with the phone off, you cant do it if charge mode is selected.)

Also be careful about what the battery is reporting. There is a known bug that gets the battery stuck or makes it jump up to 100% from time to time even when it isn't. A reboot will fix the battery reporting issue.

10-29-2012, 12:39 PM
Not to contradict you, but you said to press 'Recovery Mode' while my phone is plugged in. But the CM7 System Recovery screen says "Connect your phone to NOTHING! Click Recovery mode button". Which is correct or does it matter?

I press 'Install Recovery' (while plugged in) and I get a dialog that says 'Install Success!'. Then I press 'Recovery Mode' (while plugged in) and I get the 'M' screen (forever). I can still get in using the 'hold the power button' technique you mentioned earlier. I believe that the apk that I used to install BSR is MOTODX2_Bootstrap-CM7-signed.apk. I used this one because someone on the forum told me that it was the correct one. Any idea how having my battery go dead relates to not being able to get into the phone directly? Sorry for having to drag you through all of this.

GoCliffGo05
10-29-2012, 01:18 PM
The apk you mentioned is the correct one for CM10... How long have you waited at the "M" screen before turning the phone back on? It sounds like the Recovery isn't installing correctly or something. Charge your battery up to 100% and then press install a few times just to make sure. Never really seen this before with recovery not installing correctly I mean. Not on 2.3.4/CM10 anyway. Post back.

Edit: When it hangs at the M, can you pull the battery, then replace it and then turn the phone on normally without being plugged in?

10-29-2012, 02:06 PM
I hit 'Install' in CM7 recovery three times. After I hit 'Recovery Mode' (while plugged in), it booted to the M screen where it stayed for 5+ minutes. I then pulled the battery and tried to start it while not plugged in by holding down the power button for 5-10 seconds. First I get the M screen, then I get the CM10 startup screen, then I am in. This is the first time that this has worked since we started this little journey ;-) Choosing the 'Reboot' option on the power button menu work OK, but comes up via the M + CM10 screens. My battery is @ 70 %.

I am just grateful to be able to use my phone again, so the BSR problem does really need to be solved right away unless you think that it is important. Let me know if there is anything that I can do on my end to help you figure this out. Thanks again. Do you guys take donations (money, beer, donut of the month club, etc)?

10-29-2012, 02:30 PM
Hmm.. Well as long as you can get in, its fine. Next thing i would try (whenever you decide to get around to it) would be to uninstall CM7 Recovery completely, Redownload it MOTODX2_Bootstrap-CM7-signed.apk (http://www.mediafire.com/?pzz4413k6wggcao) and then install it again and see if that helps.

If you have root explorer or a similar root browsing app check Data/app and see if com.tenfar.a4.recovery-1.apk is in there and if all the permissions/owners match the rest in that folder. (If you don't know what i just said then dont worry about it lol)

I uninstalled/re-installed 'CM7 Recovery', but it didn't make a difference. And I did understand your other instructions. I'm only semi-clueless when it comes to Android ;-) Years of SW development have taught me not to mess around with things that I don't fully understand (like Android). The stuff that I have read about CM is a bit confusing (at least to me), since it is kind of spread out across different versions and I don't understand the inner workings of Android. Plus there are various people out there who offer advice that is of questionable quality. Anyway, the apk that you asked about is in Date/app and is system.system 644.

What am I risking by not installing the CM7 BSR? Would it make more sense to wait and deal with this when I have to install the next version of CM10? Or might I need it to install the next version of CM10?

As of right now you aren't risking anything by not having it... the only problem is that without it you can't create backups of your ROM and you can't restore any backups you already have... if you don't have recovery installed then when the next version comes out you will have to SBF before you can install it... that's not a huge deal to me though because if you use Titanium Backup you can save all your apps and just restore them anyway.

Ok. Since you suggested SBFing to fix this problem anyway, I'll just wait for the next version of CM10 and go through that whole process. Thank you so much for your help and patience.

DZK's latest tweet: "Sorry guys, been swamped again with homework and school. I want to get A3 out but i can't find a time to get it going."

So it tells us two things:

1.) Next release will be Alpha 3, not Beta 1.
2.) We will have to be patient for a while longer.

There lies the problem. I have no idea if he is under warranty and if he wants to spend the time/money to get it repaired. If he is getting a new phone, would he pick the X2 again with all the new options available??? I doubt it but I can not speak for the guy. This is all up in the air until he says what he is going to do.

found the donate button. i was looking for a typical paypal shaped one. my bad.

honestly, mine works wonderfully, now. finally worked out the sd card issue. for me, at least, i just had to delete all the crap (leftover from storing apps and everything on it when i had my og droid) on it...only place the stuff i wanted (backups, media, etc.) back on it, and everything was found properly. must have "looked like" the card was an OS directory or something?

i have lockups every now and then...not too frequently...and can't take videos. otherwise, mine's great!

That's good to hear. It's just if he can get A3 out, there are a lot of talks for AOKP, Paranoid Android and maybe even Liberty being ported over for the X2. Most developers/porters were waiting for A3 but some say they are porting/building now. So look for a few new ROMs out there. I will post here when and if they become available.

I have been eagerly following this thread here and on XDA. My girlfriend shares a family plan with a coworker and they both have X2s, both of which I am literally dying to upgrade to Jelly Bean if at all possible, after enjoying it on my work phone (motorola Defy) and my personal phone, a Note II. They're stuck on contract for almost another year, and suffering through an antiquated Gingerbread is just not fair at all!

However, they're both non-techies to the core, so the rom would need to be much more stable than it is presently, though certainly it is now very close. I'd seriously be happy to send some cash in the right direction on this if it could mean a new X2 in his hands and the release of an A3 or B1 variant in the near future. Dragonzkiller's work on this is hugely awesome and seriously appreciated.

Please continue to keep us posted and thanks again for all the work on this rom.

By the way, for those interested. DZK said via twitter that he plans/hopes to release one final update. It is not the 4.1.2 update he was planning to get out because it is a slightly older build but he claims it is better than A2.

I have the Droid X2 with 2.3.4 . I tried loading the CM10 Rom last night and it didn't completely take. I eventually had to do a factory reset.
I got as far as the Droid home page but with no Icons, the notification bar was there, but I was getting a message "set up can not find something" I should have wrote the exact message down. What am I doing wrong? I'm rooted and I installed the CM10 zip file from the root directory of the SD card. Followed the instructions to a tee.

Any help would be appreciated!

Any idea when the camera and camcorder might be working with the CM10?

GoCliffGo05
11-20-2012, 12:42 PM
Did you flash the GApps after the ROM? Missing apps sounds like that may be the issue. Also the camera should work because it is the ICS camera not the JB one. The camcorder will likely never work because the developers X2 is broken plus we can not flash custom kernels so we are running JB on a GB kernel. If you want a camcorder try Videocam Illusion from the play store.

CM10 has battery reporting issues sometimes. It will jump up to 100% out of the blue, so reboot the phone, charge to 100% and keep an eye on it to make sure you are getting a full charge.

Hello,


I have a droid x2 currently running cm7 with cm7 restore and rom manager installed and up to date. I downloaded cm10 and the required apps from this thread. When i try to boot into recovery mode using either cm7 recovery or rom manager recovery it doesn't work, it just boots into cm7. When I go into rom manager and choose "install rom from sdcard" and select the cm10 .zip download from this thread and check "wipe data and cache" and "wipe dalvik cache", hit "ok", it asks me to reboot into clockwork mod recovery to continue installation, I hit OK, and the phone just reboots into cm7. When I go into cm7 recovery and choose reboot into recovery it does the same whether I choose charge mode or regular. Help please?

GoCliffGo05
11-26-2012, 09:04 PM
Hi. You shouldn't be using ROM Manager. It doesn't work on the X2. If you are already on CM7 you should be using the patched CM7 recovery found here: MOTODX2_Bootstrap-CM7-signed.apk (http://www.mediafire.com/?pzz4413k6wggcao) Uninstall ROM Manager and any other recovery you have installed before
installing the correct one.

Edit: just re read your post. Sounds like you may have the correct one installed. However go ahead and uninstall both of them(including ROM manager, and dont use it from now on), and then reinstall the one I linked. After it is installed and you see "CM7 System Recovery" in your apps drawer open it and press install. Then you need to be plugged into a wall charger and then press recovery mode.

Alright so installed cm10 and it looks cool but I have no file manager and the reboot into recovery option doesn't work. I get an error symbol and it hangs there. How can I install a new recovery app if I have no file manager and if I were to find a file manager how would I install it with no recovery that works? And on that note, how would I flash back to another rom if I can't boot into recovery? Thanks for the help. If i am stuck like this I honestly am not that worried about it.

The text message issue is not common. I receive messages just fine. Are you using a 3rd party app for texts? If you want all out stability, CM7 for 2.3.4 is the way to go. You said you cant save anything to your external? That's not true, you just cant run apps there.

GoCliffGo05
12-03-2012, 08:19 PM
Your internal storage is now sdcard0 and external is now sdcard1, so that's how you find things in root explorer. CM7 is a Gingerbread Rom. Our ICS Roms are not stable. If you don't like the browser crashing then I wouldn't go there. However email should work on it but the phones are also prone to random reboot. If you still want to try it then i would suggest CM9, Paranoid Android or AOKP.

Just note that since you are on CM10 you can not directly flash a ROM. You will either need to restore a nandroid back to something or SBF first.
