Droid RAZR M Goodies Show Up on the OG RAZR
When new devices are released, there are a plethora of ways to enjoy it. For many, it’s getting one pre-ordered. For others, it’s waiting for system dumps or firmware leaks, and using them to port the newest stuff around to older devices. It can’t match the experience of actually owning the phone, but it does give potential owners or fans great insight as to how the new software runs. Motorola Droid RAZR users can now get a taste of what’s to come on the Motorola Droid RAZR M.
XDA Forum Member BondGarcia has successfully ported some elements of the RAZR M to the original RAZR. This includes the very popular circle clock widget, the launcher, and several core applications like Messaging, Gallery, and Camera. Granted, it isn’t everything available, but it’s definitely a good start and a nice way to see what the RAZR M interface will be like.
Installing the various APKs is quite simple. You’ll need a root-enabled file manager application. Drop the APKs into /system/app and, more or less, you’re done. You’ll have to change permissions for the launcher, but otherwise you’re good to go. BondGarcia recommends backing up the replaced applications, so that you can revert easily should you need to.
