Jcase Roots the Moto RAZR i WITHOUT Bootloader Unlock!

For the most part, there aren't too many Intel-powered Android smartphones on the market. There's nothing inherently wrong with them, although things are a bit tricky for older NDK-produced apps that haven't been cross-compiled. However, there is one relatively popular model that featured Intel's Atom Z2460 chip, and that's the Motorola RAZR i. Recently, we talked about how Motorola was doing the right thing and reinstating warranties on developer edition devices that have had their bootloaders unlocked via Motorola's unlocking service....

Swap the Internal and External SD Cards on the RAZR i

Switching the internal storage and external storage is a topic we've discussed before. The practice is actually quite well known, as older devices had very little internal storage. Even though phones have much more abundant internal storage, the method remains. Now, Motorola RAZR i users can swap their external and internal cards. The mod was posted by XDA Senior Member rickwyatt, and it's actually a pretty simple process. This swaps the internal and external SD cards. So if you have a...

ClockworkMod Recovery Beta Released for Moto RAZR i

Not long after it's release, the Moto RAZR i has not only gotten root, but also a set of fastboot images to flash. The next logical step would be a custom recovery, and this Intel powered device is no exception. Moto RAZR i users now have ClockworkMod Recovery. XDA Senior Member turl1 initially released ClockworkMod for the RAZR i. However, the first attempt had its fair share of issues. However, after some debugging and bug fixing, turl1 released a second...

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

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...

Well, since the path to perfection is a never ending one, paving it with more and better ways to make daunting tasks a little bit easier seems to be the most logical choice. Because of...

Multi Platform Root Tool for the Motorola Razr i

So, you got your new shiny, slim, and Intel-loaded Motorola RAZR i, and could not be more grateful to Motorola for allowing you to unlock your bootloader simply simply handing them your soul warranty. Your device is now ready to flash anything that comes across your screen, be it a kernel or a ROM. However, not too many devs have purchased the device yet, and as a result, not too many ROMs are available. So, you are stuck with stock. However,...

Swing and Miss: Motorola RAZR i Kernel Source Almost Here

The newly announced Motorola RAZR i is what many people looking for change have been waiting for. Well, maybe not looking for change, but rather looking forward to Intel's entrance into the mobile handset market. Talk began regarding the Medfield platform, which is essentially an Intel Atom CPU and a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, which actually brings devices one step closer to being full laptop replacements. For those who guessed that Google would be the first to take them for...

Unlock the Bootloader on the Motorola RAZR i

Earlier today, we announced the creation of a forum for the Intel Medfield-powered Motorola RAZR i. As exciting as a new device is, nothing beats the thrill experienced when development work begins. As an excellent first step, let's get started and unlock the bootloader! Motorola devs have always had it hard ever since Android came into existence. The company's old policies virtually locked everyone out of being able to do anything at all with their devices. This was mainly due...

Forums Added for the RAZR i and Galaxy S III Mini

The Motorola RAZR i may not exactly stand out at first glance. Sure, the 4.3" Super AMOLED Advanced edge-to-edge display (PenTile) draws attention to itself thanks to its minuscule bezel. However, the real differences can be found in the internal architecture. The RAZR i is one of the first devices to be based on the Intel Medfield architecture, and it is the first Medfield device to clock in at 2 GHz. Backing up the processor is 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of...
