ClockworkMod Recovery Beta Released for Moto RAZR i

Not long after it’s release, the Moto RAZR i has not only gotten root, but also a set of fastboot images to flash. The next logical step would be a custom recovery, and this Intel powered device is no exception. Moto RAZR i users now have ClockworkMod Recovery.

XDA Senior Member turl1 initially released ClockworkMod for the RAZR i. However, the first attempt had its fair share of issues. However, after some debugging and bug fixing, turl1 released a second working version just a few days later. It comes in .img format, so you need to flash via fastboot to install it. While this version is working much better, it still has a few bugs. Here’s what the known issues are:

There’s still a couple of bugs to kill on it (like keys being a little.. slow to generate events) but it’s usable and mattlgroff was able to nandroid his phone with it.

At the very least, the core functions do work. Now users can make those ever important Nandroid backups and, eventually, flash ROMs. For more details, check out the original thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
