Rooting Motorola Defy and installing Cyanogen mode

I’m back. It’ll be a short post containg nothing more than a few links helping you to replace the standard Motorola Defy Android installation.

  1. Start with http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/Motorola_Defy:_Full_Update_Guide
  2. If you have any problems with getting su (” Installing bootmenu & the ClockworkMod Recovery” fails on running su command) as I have, get yourself SuperOneClickand use it insead of commands executed via adb shell
  3. Go to the next point of the basic instruction named “Flashing CyanogenMod” and follow instructions
  4. After installation if your phone hangs on the Cyanogenmode load screen follow the fifth point of http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1065798
  5. Enjoy Cyanogenmode installed :]
