Dorid 2 Global

It's been a while since we heard any Gingerbread news for the Droid 2 Global, as Motorola seems to have slowed things down after finding some issues with Gingerbread.  But thanks to Android developer aceoyame, we now have a leaked build to play with.  It's not yet rooted, and there seems to be some confusion about it unlocking the D2G bootloader (spoiler: it doesn't), but it is Android 2.3.3 and software version 4.5.606 with some new Blur and all the other Gingerbread perks.

Installing it seems to be a bit tricky, you need to be sure you are at a 100 percent stock .330 build, with no recovery or bootstrap installed.  Aceoyame suggests flashing back to .330 with a clean wipe before attempting this update.  As for rolling back, several say you should be able to SBF back to .330, but I've yet to find anyone who can confirm -- so you're going forward at your own risk.  For more information, links, and installation details, hit the source link.  Be sure to sing out in the Droid 2 forums if you give this one a spin!

Gingerbread leaked for the Droid 2 Global


Plz update the community on whether this update is lagging the D2Gs cuz Froyo feels a lot faster than GB at this point

I installed this tonight and it's working GREAT. The interface feels MUCH faster now, great audio quality, certain things like Manage Applications don't hang anymore, cool transition effects like when you slide the keyboard or switch back to the launcher... overall this thing is just AWESOME.

Can you help me? The rootzwiki instructionc dont seem too clear so can you post in the comments like an in depth instruction guide? I downloaded the file on my phone and it was places in my downloads section, it was unzipped and called leak.7z canyou help me out from here?
