Recovery and GPS Every Boot for Motorola Atrix 2
Owners of the Motorola Atrix 2 have recently faced a different problem than most Android enthusiasts are used to. Normally, when you install a custom recovery, it stays there. You can boot into it pretty much whenever you want and do whatever you want, knowing it’ll be there when you need to restore a Nandroid in the future. However, for Atrix 2 owners, that has been a bit of a challenge, as their problem is actually more of a choice. They can either have working GPS or a normal custom recovery experience. However, installing the custom recovery likes to break GPS. This is sort of a major bug, but luckily, it has been rectified.
XDA Senior Member rdavisct has released a guide that helps users install a custom recovery permanently on their Atrix 2 without borking the GPS. The method uses a mod created by developer Brandon McAnsh, and requires a little terminal emulator work, but it’s not too hard, and it isn’t very time consuming. Users attempting this will find that the method is quite easy to follow.
