Accidental Jelly Bean 4.1.2 Leak for Motorola Droid RAZR

droidrazrupdate

For some Motorola Droid RAZR owners out there, this Christmas was a very Merry one indeed. As it turns out, Verizon had accidentally flipped the update switch, and some owners got a very early update to Android 4.1. Unfortunately, the switch was flipped off eventually, but not before a good number of people got the update. Now, that build is available for developers and users to try out and work from.

XDA Senior Member spc_hicks09 managed to grab the update as it was being pushed and uploaded it for all to have. Along with the download, spc_hicks09 has also provided a rather extensive set of instructions for users who want to install it. There are some risks though, as spc_hicks09 explains:

Turn Your Droid RAZR into a Droid RAZR Maxx

razrmaxx

You don’t have to look far to find a Motorola Droid RAZR owners who didn’t feel a little cheated when the RAZR Maxx came out—same phone, same specs, and a substantially larger battery. In short, it’s everything the RAZR should have been. Well, there is now a method to fully convert your Droid RAZR into a Droid RAZR Maxx.

XDA Forum Member Faekie posted a tutorial that takes the internal hardware of the RAZR and transplants it into the housing of a RAZR Maxx. This includes its wonderful, gigantic battery. As it should be noted, this will void pretty much all warranties. And since you’ll be working with most of the components, it’s quite dangerous. Proceed at your own risk.

Droid RAZR M Goodies Show Up on the OG RAZR

Droid RAZR M

When new devices are released, there are a plethora of ways to enjoy it. For many, it’s getting one pre-ordered. For others, it’s waiting for system dumps or firmware leaks, and using them to port the newest stuff around to older devices. It can’t match the experience of actually owning the phone, but it does give potential owners or fans great insight as to how the new software runs. Motorola Droid RAZR users can now get a taste of what’s to come on the Motorola Droid RAZR M.

XDA Forum Member BondGarcia has successfully ported some elements of the RAZR M to the original RAZR. This includes the very popular circle clock widget, the launcher, and several core applications like Messaging, G. . . READ ON »

RAZRstuff

This year, we’ve been on a kick to help teach users how to develop on various platforms. Whether it’s something like compiling ROMs from source or creating icon sets, there are threads scattered across XDA that help teach those who are interested how to do various things. Motorola Droid RAZR users can now learn how to port battery mods and notification toggles to their favorite ROM.

Of course, it can be used for any battery mod and c. . . READ ON »

Motorola Releases HTCDev-Like Unlocking Tool

Motodev

Motorola and their locked bootloaders have been a topic of discussion here on the XDA Portal on multiple occasions. They have locked down all of their newest devices, and have even released updates to lock down the older ones. This has caused a lot of backlash from members here on XDA, especially since Motorola was acquired by Google not too long ago. This caused speculation as to whether Motorola would take the open source values of their parent company, and if so, when this would happen. It seems as if this may be starting to happen now.

Motorola has released the first version of their bootloader unlocker tool. It has a lot in common with HTCDev. Users will need the Android SDK and the Motorola drivers. Then, itR. . . READ ON »

Learning to Use the BootMenu Manager for Droid RAZR

BootMenuManager

Motorola does things a little bit differently than most other OEMs. For Samsung and HTC devices, users usually just boot into a custom recovery and flash whatever they want. If the bootloader is locked, sometimes flashing things via HBoot or Odin Mode is required. For Motorola devices, many of them use a BootMenu Manger like application or a Bootstrap application to get recovery on the device so things can be flashed on it. First time Motorola users may find this confusing, as it’s not as clean cut as Samsung and HTC devices. The process has been written out for Moto Droid RAZR users in tutorial form to help make things easier.

Written by XDA Senior Member HSD-Pilot, the tutorial outlines how to use the B. . . READ ON »
