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.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
