A rooted phone can take you to many other possible worlds beyond what your phone’s manufacturer or carrier would allow you to. With root access, you can enjoy custom ROMs, remove pesky bloatware, improve the phone’s performance, and personalize your phone the way you want. For the price of voiding your warranty, these great possibilities can be enjoyed on your rooted Motorola Droid 2.
The Motorola Droid 2 was first released with Android 2.2 Froyo, but Motorola has provided an upgrade for Android 2.3 Gingerbread. But, you really think you’d stop at Gingerbread, especially with creative and diligent independent developers? You can also enjoy Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the Motorola Droid 2 by flashing CyanogenMod 9 (currently unofficial and unsupported) on your rooted mobile phone. This ROM gives you optimized and enhanced features which you cannot find in the phone’s stock ROM.
If you want to experience Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, check out the rest of this guide and learn how to install CyanogenMod 9 on your Motorola Droid 2.
These instructions are intended for the Motorola Droid 2. Do not use these instructions on another handset. These instructions are also provided for educational purposes. Use them at your own risk. We shall not be responsible for whatever happens to your phone.
Congratulations! You’ve upgraded your Motorola Droid 2 to Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich via CyanogenMod 9.

I was on CM7, followed the steps exactly, but I’m stuck on a bootloop now…
i didn’t even get a boot loop…i was stuck on the ‘M’ logo after flashing
If you get stuck in a bootloop, make sure you did a data/factory reset
Works great for me. Thanks! Only two problems I noticed so far: The clock app keeps stopping, and the camera still suffers from the same problem as cm7, where it crshes if you unlock the screen and the camera app is running in the foreground.
