POSTS TAGGED: Motorola Atrix 4G

Status Bar Makeover for Atrix and Galaxy Nexus on CM9

Atrix Status Bar Mod

One of the greatest attributes of cross-platform ROMs such as CyanogenMod is that modifications can be used on most phones that run the release. Things like theme chooser and CyanogenMod Settings change very little, if at all, regardless of target device. The same holds true for many other CyanogenMod modifications as well.

XDA Senior Member rickriego has posted a method for CyanogenMod 9 users toting the Motorola Atrix 4G that will not only place the clock in the middle of the status bar, but bring several other features—a couple of which are fully configurable—to the CM9 experience.

According to XDA Forum Member rob43, who originally released the mod for CM9 on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the fe. . . READ ON »

Get a Tablet UI on CyanogenMod9 for the Atrix 4g

tablet UI

For those of us who don’t have tablets, we often find ourselves envious of those who do have tablets. The giant screen, the extra features and the slick user interfaces, to name a few. Sometimes, it’s a little fun to grab up a tablet-like feature just to feel the love.

Well, thanks to XDA Senior Member AndroidON, users who are carrying the Motorola Atrix 4g can experience a little bit of the tablet goodness with a mod that will give Atrix users a tablet UI.

The mod is pretty simple to apply compared to some. It involves overwriting a services.jar file and a couple of build.prop tweaks, then reboot and your home screen should bear a striking resemblance to an Android Tablet. It should help lessen the jealou. . . READ ON »

Motorola Atrix 4g Gets CyanogenMod9

CyanogenMod1

The Motorola Atrix 4g has been able to stay pretty recent with development, already having a couple of CyanogenMod7 ports and updated ROMs with the stock firmware.

To help keep up with the latest and greatest, XDA Senior Member jokersax11 has brought a port of CyanogenMod9 for those carrying the Atrix 4g. The ROM is pretty stable, with only a few things missing from being perfect. Here’s a list of things that aren’t working:

camera
Adobe flash issues- either adobes fault or 2d issues fault
HDMI landscape
YouTube
Car dock-missing apk
Some 2d issues, mostly works
Built in video playback- use 3rd party for now as its driver related

The list of things that are working is much longer and these problems are. . . READ ON »

WebTop: rDesktop 1.7.0 Available

Motorola-Atrix-4G3

Atrix 4G owners out there will be interested to hear that rDesktop 1.7.0 is available by XDA forum member FallenAngelUK.

rDesktop is a terminal services client for Linux, which allows you to connect to a terminal services session of any Windows machine with Remote Desktop enabled.

This is a newer release of rDesktop than what is available in the Debian repos.

In order to use the client, you’ll need access to a terminal from WebTop and a small amount of Linux shell knowledge.

The XDA dev has posted that this has been invaluable for getting onto his desktop and servers at work, so please post any feedback in the application thread. Full details on how to use rDesktop are in the same thread.. . . READ ON »

Do You Want More Fingers On Your Atrix Screen Recognized? Try This…

multitouch atrix

So, you have probably seen some of the newer Android devices like the Asus Transfomer do something rather interesting. Their screens are set up in such a way that the device will accurately recognize up to 10 individual touch points on it. While the Atrix may not get that much from this new fix, XDA member michael0619 brings us the next best thing by providing a way to get the Atrix to recognize up to 5 points on the screen. Want to slash away on Fruit ninja? Now is your chance. In retrospect, 5 fingers should be enough as it would be somewhat complicated to get all 10 of your fingers on a screen that size. The dev also does mention that it is possible to get the device to recognize more than 5 points but it becomes less accura. . . READ ON »

Motorola to Unlock Atrix Bootloader in Future Update?

Atrix_Unlock

Well, it seems as if we’re either in the Twilight Zone or in a parallel universe now.  First HTC and now Motorola appear to be playing nicely with us enthusiasts. In the latest version of the Motorola Atrix bootloader intended for Hong Kong and Taiwan devices, the bootloader appears to be unlockable upon entering everyone’s favorite fastboot oem unlock command twice.

Two days ago, XDA forum member tsouza noticed a rather strange incident posted in hex was observed in a thread asking for leaked keys on the Motorola support forums. While not exactly leaked keys, upon decoding, it read as follows:

Greetings, fellows. We know that you are dying for the unlocked bootloader. Moto is not the on

Atrix 1080p Recording OlympusCamera App

motorola-atrix-4g-smartphone

If you’re the lucky owner of a Motorola Atrix, you might want to try out some 1080p recording courtesy of XDA forum member zove.

The OlympusCamera.apk has been modified to allow HD recording and has been tested on firmware 1.8.3 de-odexed.

You’ll need to replace the stock OlympusCamera.apk in the system/app folder and reboot to allow the app to reload into the app drawer.

XDA member mramirezusa has also posted steps required to install the replacement app using Root Explorer. You should back up the original file by renaming before installing the modified apk.

For more information and to download the file, head on over to the modification thread and for full step by step instructions, take a look at . . . READ ON »

Atrix Bootloader Almost Bypassed — Like a Boss

atrix_lockdown

Cracking the Atrix bootloader is something man has been on a quest to do ever since it was released. When I say man, I’m of course referring to the fantastically techy ladies and gentlemen in our forums.

XDA member kholk has been working very hard to make this a reality, rather than a dream. He’s successfully managed to run Kexec, but he needs a kernel and the exact address of the boot parameters.

The kexec has been provided for any developers who wish to help, and this is exactly what kholk is looking for. Some dashing, strapping, and helpful developers, who are willing to lend a hand to a great member of the community.

Motorola Atrix 4G Bootloader About To Be Unlocked

atrix_lockdown

Many of us were saddened to find out that the bootloader in Motorola’s powerful new Atrix 4G is just as locked down as other recent devices from the manufacturer. However, thanks to some sleuth work care of XDA forum member dasmoover, we may be one rather large step closer to solving that problem.

Interestingly enough (I don’t know the reasons), it looks like Motorola left a copy of Nvflash and Atrix-specific bootloader.bin for it on the Atrix. What’s interesting about Nvflash is that it allows for targeted backup and restore of partitions (i.e. something along the lines of what Nandroid allows for, except at a lower level), which decreases recovery time when developers do something t
