The first of many breakthroughs on Motorola devices, we hope – CyanogenMod 7 is now making its way to the Motorola DROID 2. This comes several days after a breakthrough achieved on the DROID X that allowed CyanogenMod 7 to boot and run. And run well, at that. Developer cvpcs says they’ll eventually be merging the DROID 2 into the main CM branch, which will bring the delicious nightlies we all crave. (Don’t worry, we’ll alert you when that goes down.) Be sure to follow cvpcs on Twitter and follow along. [Droid-Life]
