Motorola Droid X2 receives early alpha CyanogenMod 9 buildUnless Motorola changes their stance, the Droid X2 is one of their Android devices that will not be seeing the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update – at least not officially. Yup it looks like thanks to the folks at the Android developer community, it looks like a very early alpha build of CyanogenMod 9 has been created by dragonzkiller for the Droid X2. This will offer Droid X2 owners a taste of Android 4.0 in the form of a custom ROM, but unfortunately this will require some knowledge of rooting and flashing ROMs, so we guess it will not be for everybody.

However for those who possess some knowledge in this matter, perhaps this is an alpha build you might be interested in taking for a spin. However given that it is an early alpha build, bugs and missing features are to be expected. For starters some features such as WiFi, Bluetooth, Data and YouTube seem to be working, while other features such as MMS, Camera, Chrome beta, etc still have their kinks that need some ironing out. This is probably for the advanced user, so if you think that’s you, head on over to the XDA forums for the download and the instructions, but be sure to back up your device and remember, proceed at your own risk!
