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.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
