Webtop and Google Now on Atrix 4G ICS ROMs

Webtop may be on its way to the grave, but many still enjoy the technology. It was a unique idea that set Motorola apart from the competition. It’s just too bad they didn’t do much else right. For Motorola Atrix 4G users running certain custom ROMs, Webtop is now not only attainable, but Google Now right along with it.

XDA Forum Member Rhadamg has posted a zip that enables Webtop, Google Now, and many other Google-related goodies without too much of a hassle. Unfortunately, it only works for certain ROMs at the moment. The Google Now functionality comes from previous efforts lead by XDA Senior Member cajunflavoredbob.

The installation method is pretty easy—simply flash in recovery. Reports on the mod’s functionality are mixed. For some, it is working perfectly, while others are experiencing issues. Common issues include force closes, web dock incompatibilities, and other buggy behavior. Some of this has been attributed to the fact this is still an early release of the project. The rest is attributed to bugs already present within Webtop. Future releases should have many of these issues ironed out.

However, Theme Store...

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.
