Hi. Posted something similar the other day. However, these instructions
will also format the data partition and install Talkback. As always,
thanks to Robbie for supplying the originoal instructions required to do
Installing a new rom ON Motorola Milestone 2.
Note: in order to do this you will require the Android SDK and other files
such as Java etc. Not going to cover that here as this was covered by Simon
in the Xperia Pro thread.
First, copy the update zip and the gapps zip to the sd card. You can if you
wish, rename them to short names. However, you may not need to if you are
using copy and paste to do this as I do.
If you haven't already then, enable USB debugging on the phone. Plug the
USB cable between your PC and the phone.
We will now use ADB to get a shell on the phone. In order to do that in
Windows, we need to bring up a command prompt in the directory where adb is.
Tip: if you are doing this on Windows then, you can go to where you have
installed adb. In my case that's:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
Then, shift right click in that directory and choose open command prompt
from the menu. In the command prompt Window type:
You should now have a prompt, which can vary depending on the boot image.
If it ends with "#", then you are root. If it ends with "$", type:
the prompt should change to "#".
Tip: you can copy and paste all of the following entries. You can do that
by copying all of the text into notepad then, selecting it a line at a time.
Press control C to copy. Then, when in the command prompt, right click in
that Window and choose Paste from the menu. then, press enter to execute the
text in the window. Be very careful when selecting text that you only
select the text and no blank space. Anyway, back to installing the ROM.
We need to create the clockworkmod script to install the ROM. We can do
that by typing the following:
cat > /cache/recovery/extendedcommand
Type the keystroke Control D to end the file.
We now need to reboot the phone into recovery mode so that it will continue
with the install and the following commands will do that.
After several minutes, install the talkback apk which you can download at
Then use the following command to install it:
adb install TalkBack.apk
We now need to reboot the phone into ICS and the following command will do
adb shell reboot.
You should now be able to draw the rectangle on the screen and setup the
phone using talkback.
