CM9 Alpha for Droid X2 Takes a Big Leap Forward
The development of an AOSP-based ROM such as CyanogenMod is sometimes troublesome on certain devices. The issues, bugs, and missing features sometimes range from broken 4G data or camera issues, down to things like problematic MMS. However, many bugs that have been plaguing CM9 progress for the Motorola Droid X2 have finally been fixed.
The ROM in question is CM9, and while ICS is not the newest OS on the block anymore, it’s still quite an achievement to get it running on older devices that haven’t yet received it. XDA Recognized Developer dragonzkiller has been actively working on the CM9 port, but has experienced a few issues making the camera work properly.
While seemingly a small problem, cameras can often be tricky to enable. It should also be noted that while still camera functionality is now fixed, video recording is not yet functional. With this problem being solved, though, all of the main features of the Droid X2 CM9 now work. This includes calls, texts, data, camera, WiFi, and Bluetooth. With only a few other issues remaining, it might not be long before Droid X2 owners get a fully functional CM9.
