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:
Adobe flash issues- either adobes fault or 2d issues fault
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 aren’t the worst out there so people who would like to run this as a daily driver could do so if they can look passed the issues. Also, based on the updates, it appears as though jokersax11 will be sticking with it til everything is working perfectly so for those who aren’t ready to flash this yet, keep an eye out on the original thread for updates, download links and additional information.

It seems to be that Motorola can have their good and bad days. Today, we published an article about the biggest thing since sliced bread (at least for Motorola Atrix owners) as the bootloader was unlocked by Motorola in a recent Asian release. However, not everything is roses for Atrix owners. Just a couple of days ago, we received a tip from XDA member crnkoj who was participating in a discussion over in the official Motorola forums regarding a strange problem with Wifi in the Atrix. As it turns out, there are certain parts of the code that were not properly written for drivers as well as a few other parameters. These improper drivers will cause anyone using, or rather trying to use, the device in certain countries to not be able to connect to Wifi networks. Lots of people who own these devices are business people and as such require data connectivity. Guess what happens when you cannot use Wifi to check your e-mail? You have to rely on roaming data, which is ungodly expensive, no matter where you travel to. A concrete example of this, T-Mobile will charge you US$10.00 per MB if you go to Canada and have to roam.
This is a major issue that, according to the conversation in the forums, is something that is being looked into and has been baked into the next official release from Motorola. There are no ETA’s given about this, but rest assured that this is not a dead end as the article has depicted so far. It seems that crnkoj posted a thread about a month ago (shortly after this problem surfaced) regarding a fix for this problem. Keep in mind that this is not official, so if you are willing to wait for Motorola’s official fix, by all means. On the other hand, if you are in a pressing need to travel abroad and need your Atrix up and running, you may want to follow this tutorial, which will require you to have some basic knowledge of ADB.
Please give the fix a quick shot and see if it works for you.
So guys, here is a quick tutorial how to fix your nonworking wifi in certain countries. The problem for it not working is that motorolas wifi driver is missing some country codes …
