What is "Bugless Beast?"?

Asked by metadog (378points) September 3rd, 2010

Hi! I am a new Droid 2 owner and, while loving it, am still experiencing poor battery life and some signal fluctuations. In looking around, I keep seeing reference to the “Bugless Beast” ROM. The implication is that many of the problems I am experiencing might be fixed by going down this path. Would you be able to give me a newbie explanation of this thing and an understanding on why I might be interested in it? Also, what would be the down side? Can I revert back to the stock Verizon software if things go wrong? Is it hard to install, etc? Thanks!

It is an alternitave ROM software for the phone, that was complied by a 3rd party from source.

Sometimes they are better optimized or have more features.

You need root access on the phone to install it, I am not sure what the process for the droid 2 is ( i have original).

You can revert provided you have the proper software to load the images. You do run the risk of trashing your phone if you try this.
