The first “custom” ROM for the DROID 2 surfaces

Motorola Droid 2

The circle is complete. After all the nay-saying and fear that was surrounding the DROID X and the DROID 2 being locked down so tight that “modding” and “hacking” the devices would not be possible, it appears that the DROID 2 has its first “custom” ROM. We use the term custom lightly, this is actually just a cleaned-up version of the stock ROM that is included with the D2.

The ROM is known as the EPIC ROM (by Matt4542)  and can be downloaded over at the Droid Life forums. Of course your D2 needs to be rooted and have the Clockwork Recovery flashed to be able to use the ROM. Over on the forums you can see some of the scripts that were included in EPIC, none of them too fancy, but it is definitely a start for something better in the future.

Just a reminder, there is always a potential risk with doing anything of this nature to your device. Also, you will be voiding your warranty in the process. So, take a look over at the Droid Life forums to install and run the new ROM and let us know how it goes for you.
