Of all the devices that have gotten official and unofficial ports to Ice Cream Sandwich, there aren’t many that had a worse time than the Motorola Atrix 2.
What has been called the dreaded ICS leak of 2012 by members of the Atrix 2 sub-forum community, the initial leak left many users with bricked devices or devices that could be bricked at any time. Thankfully, that’s all over now, and this time the Atrix is getting some Jelly Bean goodness that shouldn’t turn your phone into a paperweight.
XDA Forum Member wanggjghost, along with the help of some other devs and members, has released an unofficial CyanogenMod 10 port for the Atrix 2. As is par for the course with this wave of AOSP Jelly Bean releas. . . READ ON »

We often see proprietary launchers from one device make their way to other devices. This can be cool for a myriad of reasons, but the most common is to see how another device’s software runs on your hardware. This can be especially interesting when you’re using the competition’s launcher or even if you’re using the launcher of the next device up from yours. This is the case with the Motorola Atrix 2 which can now run the launcher from the Motorola Atrix HD.
The launcher is pretty easy to install. Users simply boot into BOOTMENU, wipe dalvik-cache, and flash away. That isn’t to say this is flawless, however. A known bug is that you cannot add widgets from the app drawer, as well as othe. . . READ ON »

Usually, leaked firmware updates can be a lot of fun and give users insight as to how the next version of Android will run on their devices. Somethings, though, leaks can be dangerous. As we saw on the Galaxy S II as well as the Epic 4G Touch and Galaxy Note, leaks can cause some major damage if not brought under control fast enough. Another situation much like happened with Motorola Atrix 2 users, where updating from a leak caused a number of problems.
Known around the Atrix 2 forums as the Great Leak of 2012, the leak indeed had many problems. If users manage to get the update installed without hard bricking their devices, trying to roll back to Gingerbread afterward almost certainly finishes the job. The first report. . . READ ON »

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.

If you didn’t know, fastboot files allow you to recover your device from softbricks, meaning you can go ahead and flash anything you want without worrying about bricking your device.

Our not-so-little-anymore family keeps growing, and at a fast pace, I might add. We have added 3 new forums to our beloved xda-developers: Nokia Lumia 800, Motorola Atrix 2, and Motorola Droid Razr. The latter was added this past weekend, but it is still worth mentioning it as it is the first device that will be released with the infamous “Razr” branding on it since its flip phone counter part. This device is rumored to be loaded with ICS as Moto is now “partnered” with Google, but the official specs claim that it will come with Gingerbread. Other outstanding specs from this device are its ridiculously thin profile of 7.1 mm, 4.3 in Super AMOLED screen, and dual core 1.2 GHz OMAP processor. . . READ ON »
