Make Flashing Your RAZR i Easier with Homemade Fastboot Images

The development efforts on the brand new, Intel-powered Motorola RAZR i keep on pouring in, seemingly non-stop. We have already gotten an unlocked bootloader courtesy of Motorola, and we also got a way to easily and seamlessly root the device, thanks to XDA Forum Member mattlgroff. Well, since the path to perfection is a never ending one, paving it with more and better ways to make daunting tasks a little bit easier seems to be the most logical choice. Because of this, mattlgroff has decided to once again, contribute his knowledge and tools to benefit other forum members.

This time around, the dev has released fastboot images for all your flashing pleasures. These quasi-automated images will allow you to quickly switch between builds and leaks of different kinds/countries thanks to the gift of fastboot. These tools will do everything for you, from flashing the device with your build of choice to rooting it and flashing an unsecured kernel, all in one fell swoop! This only works on Windows, but if you have other needs, such as a different OS loaded on your PC, you could easily just use the other tools provided by the dev and simply flash the images manually and root with RAZR i Root.

The dev mentions that “dirty flashing” has been ok in his own experience. However, since switching between builds could normally lead to weird bugs, it is recommended that you fully wipe your device prior to switching between images. Please let the dev know if you have questions, feedback, or some leaks so that he may produce a few more homemade goodies for all to enjoy!

What does it do? (Technical).

  1. Flashes system from the new firmware.
  2. Flashes insecured kernel.
  3. Roots the phone.
  4. Flashes kernel from the new firmware.

You can find more information in the original thread.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
