POSTS TAGGED: Motorola Droid X
Posted August 19, 2014 at 01:00 pm by Tomek Kondrat
While we are all wondering when Google will decide to officially release Android L and its Material Design-laden goods, those who own significantly older devices are in no way under the false impression that they will receive the update directly. One such device is the Motorola Droid X, which was released way back in July 2010 but is still used by quite a lot of people here on XDA.
This phone originally shipped with Eclair, and now it has received a pretty stable port of CyanogenMod 11, thanks to XDA Senior Members Palmbeach05 for his early work, Aaahh for the initial release, and m.ksy for maintaining the port. Yes, that’s right, a 4-year old device can run KitKat, and run it quite well. Initial port. . . READ ON »

Sometimes it’s difficult to find a root method for aging devices. It’s not that the devices are bad, but more often than not developers have moved on to bigger and better things. For many Droid users, all of the latest updates on several devices have a solid root method. Oddly enough, it’s the same exploit and it seems to work on a plethora of devices. These include the Motorola Droid X, Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global, and the Motorola Droid X2. This includes all of their variants.
The exploit was found by phifc at RootzWiki and posted here by XDA Forum Member bhigham in the form of a LiveCD. Users are to download the ISO, burn it onto a CD, then boot from the CD. From there, users put their phones . . . READ ON »

When devices get the newest OTA, one of two things happens to root users. They either stay on the old firmware until a rooted version of the new firmware is available for flashing, or they get overzealous and flash the OTA and lose root. This can be a particularly frustrating, especially when there’s no easy root method for the new firmware. We’ve written about the the struggles users go through to get root back after losing it. Unfortunately for some phones, the newest OTA’s never get rooted.
Motorola Droid X users can now breathe a little easier because the latest .621 OTA update has been rooted. XDA Forum Member frankc123 has posted about a method that will get users rocking the latest OT. . . READ ON »

If you’ve ever attempted to root a device prone to difficulties or requiring a trial-and-error type exploit (the Motorola Droid X or T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide, for example) then you know how easily it can go wrong. Sometimes the operation fails and you end up with the superuser app installed but without actual root file system access. A quick search for “lost root” on our forums yields an astonishing 274,000 results. Almost all the visible results link to posts where forum members believe they have lost root access, usually due to updating a ROM or accepting an over-the-air update.

XDA member jbirdvegas, with the help of CVPCS, has released CyanogenMod 7 for the Motorola Droid 2. Thanks to the 2nd Init exploit in some Motorola Devices, we are now able to have custom ROMs for other Motorola devices like CM7 for the Droid X and much more in the near future. There are currently only a few issues with the ROM which are being worked on, such as Audio not being 100% stable. Other than some minor issues, this ROM seems to be a great daily driver for anyone with a Motorola Droid 2.

If you’re looking to overclock you Motorola Droid 2, look no further – XDA forum member darkonion has posted a comprehensive tutorial on running his overclocking script dooverclock.sh for Windows, Mac and Linux users.
The tutorial also covers the Motorola Droid X. darkonion states that if you get a permission error through adb shell, use the Terminal Emulator app and enter SU, then run the script again.
Feedback so far is that it runs pretty stable above 1GHz, but you must re-run after each boot.

One special feature of the Droid X’s software keyboard is the multi touch function. This really helps a lot when it comes to fast typing. However, you might be bored with the standard white ”old-fashioned” keyboard. Personally, I like white very much – as most of you probably know – but you might just prefer a black keyboard. XDA member yourfriendwayned created a skin for the keyboard of your Droid X to fit other dark themes. One nice addition is the red Droid eye functioning as the voice level meter.

If you’re a Motorola Droid X owner and just fancy a change from your default stock keyboard, then take a look at this modified keyboard by XDA forum member yourfriendwayned.
A result of boredom and productivity – not normally two words you’d put together (!), the XDA member has revamped the original Droid X multi-touch keyboard to a black version. This version also includes a special Droid Eye style voice level meter too and has been tested on the Droid X 2.2 Deodexed ROM.
If you fancy trying this out, head on over to the modification thread for full instructions on how to install the mod onto your Android device. More screenshots are also available at the thread.. . . READ ON »

If you’re a fan of tweaking your Android device, then you might want to take a look at the build.prop edits that XDA forum member LexusBrian400 has been applying to his Motorola Droid X.
Changes applied include:
- Phone ring delay
- Scrolling speed through lists e.g. app drawer and contacts
- Time intervals for WiFi to look for an access point
- Dalvik VM heap size
- LCD Density
- Android 2.2 Market display
- Enable hard key lights to stay on whilst the screen is on
- Proximity delay (for screen to come back on when phone call ends)
The XDA member has posted individual settings for the above, but has also rolled everything up into one single build.prop for you to install via adb or root explorer.
For those of you who are wary to t. . . READ ON »
