Milestone 2 Receives Both CyanogenMod 9 And 10
A few days ago, we reported on the Motorola Droid impressively receiving a working Jelly Bean ROM. The Droid’s GSM successor, the Motorola Milestone 2 has now followed suit and been given a number of recent updates in the form of CyanogenMod 9 and CyanogenMod 10.
XDA Senior Member tezet started an Alpha version of CyanogenMod 9 several months ago in order to give users a taste of CM9 on their Milestone 2. Though labelled an alpha build, a large number of the standard functions of the phone are functional. However, video functions still remain problematic.
XDA Senior Member sfc3001 has taken tezet’s ROM as a base and continued the CyanogenMod 9 development with his own creation. Also labelled an alpha build, this ROM has only a small number of outstanding issues that are by no means show stoppers. These include WiFi tether and phone encryption.
Taking it one step further, tezet has also produced a Jelly Bean-based CyanogenMod 10 ROM for the Milestone 2. Development is very much active, with regular updates. Amazingly, there are no major issues that limit the ROM’s functionality.
These custom ROMs, as with all others, are a testament to the great work the developers here on XDA put into keeping these older devices alive with much newer flavors of Google’s Android operating system.

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
