Not much long before, XDA recognized developer dragonzkiller brought CyanogenMod 9 support to Motorola Droid X2. Now the same guy has rolled out a CyanogenMod 10 port for the very same device.

Though this new ROM is in alpha, it is surprisingly stable when compared to the CM 9 build which Droid X2 had. Following are the list of things which are working well :

  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • 3G
  • Calling
  • GPS
  • Google Now
  • Audio System
  • Camera (with some issues)
  • Maps

Below we have the impressive list of features which this build offers :

  • Pop-up Text Message Notifications
  • Lockscreen Customization
  • Status Bar/Pulldown Customization
  • Homescreen/Drawer Customization
  • Themes
  • Profiles
  • Hard Button Key Remapping
  • Quiet Hours
  • And all the Jellybean features: Google Now, Smarter Keyboard, Notifications Overhaul, and a lot more

We cannot expect the ROM to be 100% perfect since it is an alpha build. Still there are some unsolved stability issues, problems are there with the camera, and some Jelly Bean/ICS apps will crash and you’ll not be able to use the apps on SD card.

CyanogenMod

You can install this ROM over CM7/CM9 or BLUR, but should wipe data and cache. How to install the ROM :

Requirements:

  • Google Apps (GAPPS) from here.
  • CyanogenMod 10-20120928-Daytona Alpha1 from here.

Follow the steps below to install this ROM :

  • Download the necessary files 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.
  • Have a nandroid backup.
  • Install the CM10 zip from the SD Card.
  • Install the GAPPS from the SD Card.
  • Wipe both data and cache (need not wipe the dalvik cache if you wipe both of these)
  • Reboot the device.

Finish!
