Dozens of Motorola and Samsung Devices Receive Unified CyanogenMod 11 Builds

cm-nexus-01b

Before Motorola was acquired by Lenovo, the OEM released two very interesting smartphones. The Moto X and Moto G were the first and probably the last devices made by the formerly American OEM in a cooperation with Google. Not so long ago, we talked about the Moto G receiving an unofficial CyanogenMod port. Now, however, the G and a few other Motorola devices will receive official CyanogenMod nightlies.

The CM team has released three unified builds, which is a bit of a surprising move, considering that the list of supported devices is quite long. The “mysterious” moto_msm8960 build will work with the Photon Q, Atrix HD, Razr M, and Droid Razr HD. The second build, dubbed moto_msm8960dt, sh. . . READ ON »

Root Exploit for Jelly Bean-Powered Atrix HD Devices

atrix hd

Users of the Motorola Atrix HD received a little bit of a raw deal when their device was updated to Android 4.1. Although they were updated to a more recent OS, Motorola had decided to really go to town on securing the device against being rooted. It was possible to upgrade from a rooted version of ICS and protect root access throughout the upgrade procedure. However, many people couldn’t contain they rampant urge to upgrade, and neglected to do so.

Thankfully though XDA Forum Member djrbliss has made something of a habit of finding root exploits for Motorola devices as well as several other devices, and was able to do just that with the Atrix HDs running Jelly Bean. This exploit though is a little more compl. . . READ ON »

Motorola Atrix HD, RAZR M, Photon Q, RAZR HD Get Root Exploit

MotoFail2Go-Root

Spend any amount of time on the XDA Forums and you know that we hate Motorola’s locked bootloader policy. It’s a silly policy that Motorola should abandon. This policy simply encourages developers, or “evil hackers” in Motorola’s mind, to find and exploit security vulnerabilities on the device. We want root, plan and simple. Whether outright or with an obnoxious two-year commitment, we’ve paid for our devices and we should be allowed to use it as we see fit.

Well, even with a locked bootloader, XDA Forum Member djrbliss has released an exploit allowing root on the Motorola Atrix HD. The program called Motofail2Go should also work for the Motorola Droid RAZR M, Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE, Mo. . . READ ON »

Put a RAZR Maxx Battery in an Atrix HD

Maxx battery in Atrix

It’s no secret that there are many Motorola customers who envy the battery life of the Droid RAZR Maxx. Compared to the Droid RAZR and the Motorola Atrix HD, the Droid RAZR gets way better battery life. We brought you news about a method to put the RAZR Maxx battery in the Droid RAZR. Now there is a method to do it to the Atrix HD.

XDA Forum Member smogtdi has posted a thread that is a compilation of other threads that actually show you the process. So far there isn’t a method that has pictures for every step, but the ones that do exist do have pictures showing the end result.

Essentially, the mod is based around getting enough space in the Atrix HD to fit the RAZR Maxx battery. What most have done is cut into the bac. . . READ ON »

Forum Added for the Motorola Atrix HD

atrixhd

By now, we’re all familiar with the Motorola Atrix 4G and Atrix 2 available on AT&T. In order to differentiate themselves from the sea of other Android devices, they offer innovative Webtop functionality. This allows them to serve as basic laptops and desktops by simply attaching the appropriate dock.

Motorola has now announced the latest in the Atrix line, the Motorola Atrix HD. Unfortunately, however, the device breaks away from its Atrix heritage by not offering Webtop functionality—a hallmark feature of its predecessors. However, it incorporates many traits from other devices such as the Motorola Droid RAZR with its Kevlar back and incredibly thin profile (8.4 mm).
