Motorola Droid 2 Gets Its First Custom ROM

Just more than a week ago the Motorola Droid X got its first ever Custom ROM. The Droid X was a tough nut to mod because of it’s locked down boot loader. However, the modding community met with success in a relatively short period of time. Motorola Droid 2 Since the Droid X and the Droid 2 use the same locked’ down boot loader, it was only a matter of time for a custom ROM for the D2 to be released. The first custom ROM for the Droid 2 is known as the Epic Unleashed and all the credit for this ROM goes to Matt4542.

Since this is the very first custom ROM for the Droid 2, it does not contain many modifications. This ROM mainly included many scripts, and build.prop modifications. Matt4542 has also ensured that all the Verizon crapware have been removed from this ROM. This ROM also contains the Droid 1 boot loader screen for a retrofeel to it.

However, this ROM has one serious bug according to me. The backlight of the Droid 2 won’t turn off after you lock the handset. This is a pretty big issue for me since the battery life of the device will take a huge hit due to this bug. Nevertheless, the developer already knows about this big and is already trying to fix it.
