Learning to Use the BootMenu Manager for Droid RAZR

Motorola does things a little bit differently than most other OEMs. For Samsung and HTC devices, users usually just boot into a custom recovery and flash whatever they want. If the bootloader is locked, sometimes flashing things via HBoot or Odin Mode is required. For Motorola devices, many of them use a BootMenu Manger like application or a Bootstrap application to get recovery on the device so things can be flashed on it. First time Motorola users may find this confusing, as it’s not as clean cut as Samsung and HTC devices. The process has been written out for Moto Droid RAZR users in tutorial form to help make things easier.

Written by XDA Senior Member HSD-Pilot, the tutorial outlines how to use the BootMenu Manager application which was developed by XDA Senior Member whirleyes. It is quite extensive and has two main parts. The first of which helps users install ICS custom ROMs onto their RAZRs, whereas the second includes general usage, tips, and troubleshooting.

Included in the tutorial is a nifty video for those who’d rather watch than read. The tutorial is also complete with screenshots to help illustrate the various steps. It walks users through preparing for ROM flashes, how to flash ROMs, how to use the BootMenu Manager recovery, how to format Webtop correctly, and a plethora of other things that a RAZR flasher may need. To complete it, HSD-Pilot has an entire section on how to resolve boot loop issues including restoring Nandroids and using RSD Lite.

All in all, it is so thorough that it even managed to impress XDA Elite Recognized Developer and Developer Admin pulser_g2, who commented:

This looks brilliant actually!

I wish someone would write this up on the forums for the Defy.

So who’s up to that task? For more information on the RAZR BootMenu Manager tutorial, check out the original thread.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
