6.16.203.XT912 & 6.16.204.XT912 ICS Build Leaks for Verizon Razr - xda-developers

So over the past month or so, Razr and Razr Maxx owners have been getting a bit antsy for the release of the coveted ICS OS (Android 4.0).  Fortunately for those willing to dig deep enough there have been a number of leaks that appear to be quite similar to the official version Motorola is due to release.  We've seen leaks .175, .179, .184, .185 previously but just a couple of days ago we have gotten a taste of even more leaks to .204 and .205.  The most recent will install Android 4.0.4 on your device and they appear to run just excellent.  Unfortunately, there is a catch.

Upgrading to the leaked ICS builds will take you off the upgrade path with no way of fastbooting or flashing back to stock Gingerbread.  The only safe leaks so far are the .175 build and .179 build.  Although they are less perfected than the later releases you still have the option of fastbooting back to Gingerbread and following the update path once we see an official Motorola release.

In the mean time, if you feel bold and cannot wait to taste the dessert Google and Moto have put out for us, then head over to or Xda and take a look at what your options are.

It won't be too long until all of the Razr owners are on ICS, but whats the fun in waiting.

Finally Moto makes a good decision! Recent news has surfaced that Google is about to buy Motorola Mobility and put in place a CEO of Googles choosing. Now this is all speculation but its looking likely as Google will aquire 17,000 patents in mobile technology and give them the freedom they've been looking for.

What does this mean for us?

It looks like we may see some policy change as Motorola has been a pain in the a$$ for their mobile phone users. Hopefully Google will get on the ball and make the Motorola droid handsets beloved once again.

Another All-In-One Rooting & Hacking Utility, This Time For Motorola Droid RAZR Users | xda-developers

Another All-In-One Rooting & Hacking Utility, This Time For Motorola Droid RAZR Users | xda-developers:

'via Blog this'

For all the Droid Razr users out there, some discontent has gone around as a result of Moto failing to unlock their bootloaders but there are still some great things in the works for this beautifully thin and fast handset. CM9 (CyanogenMod 9) is under way in an altered form but an Alpha version can be flashed currently but no real development can occur until the bootloader is unlocked.

The only great thing coming to the Razr at the moment is the OTA updates that have been released to enhance 4G connectivity. Unfortunately with each of these, unless you some adjustments posted at XDA-developers, your phone will loose its root. As a result of this a new tool for the Droid Razr makes the rooting process a piece of cake so you never have to go without root again.

Check it out over at XDA.

Big Moto and their scandalous ways are at it again

Information Concerning Rooted Users -

'via Blog this'

So everyone who has an Android device must know that the customization possibilities are endless. Flashing different ROMs, hacking through system requirements, and getting around the way of the law are all things that many a developer have become quite keen to and for the most part have gone unnoticed... UNTIL NOW.

Recent reports show that Motorola now has the ability to tell whether or not anything has been done to handset that would void a warranty. This would include rooting, flashing, etc. Big Moto knows all! This is quite unfair as many have worked hard on providing stock ROMs and relockers to keep warranties from being void.

This is a heads up to all in the developer community who own Motorola handsets. Until a workaround has been found, root, flash, and most importantly don't look back. Enjoi

Motorola Planning A 24Hr Droid Razr Maxx Longevity Event For February 6Th -

Motorola Planning A 24Hr Droid Razr Maxx Longevity Event For February 6Th -

'via Blog this'

Yep, Pick your jaw up off the floor and keep reading. The title was correct in telling you the Droid Razr Maxx, the newest Razr handset released not even two and half months after its predecessor the Droid Razr, is going to have a Longevity event. The event is to take place on 2/6/2012 to show off the 3,300 mAh battery and its claimed 24 hour battery life. Not only does it claim to have a 24-hour battery life, its claiming that it also has a talk time of over 21 hours!

I don't about you but this would be quite the feat. As an owner of the OG Razr, I'd love to see this Razr Maxx test fail (so I don't have to be one of the first to upgrade handsets) but at the same time this would be one hell of a feat for the Razr world.

Stay tuned until the 6th to see how the Droid Razr Maxx holds up.

XDA say wha?!?!

So if any of you on the WP7 and Android platforms and even some of you snarky iOS lovers have probably stumbled upon the renowned haven known as This site is where the development began and has grown to establish what has come to be the most powerful and impressive mobile OS out there - Android. From Froyo to Ice Cream Sandwich the Devs on XDA have made the experience what it is today to have Android handsets.

Recently, legislation passed that will allow for copyright enforcers to be a bit more harsh on those who push the limit so many websites, such as XDA, will be shut down later ...... WAIT... XDA is being shut down?! Wait... [Rip in Time Warp Continuum]... Wait.... Are you sure? Now were back. Yes ladies and gentledevs XDA is going to be shut down on Jan 18th. Its not the end though as there are definitely workarounds to be had and users such as yourself can keep it alive. Check it out over at XDA while you can. This may be the worst Friday the 13th I've ever seen.

Who's going to unbrick our phones, write CyanogenMod, make fun of the newbs who are lost, and put SassiBob on XDATV?!?!
Lets keep open source development on the table shall we? Do something about it.

Happy New Year!

Hello again and Happy New Year 2012!!! I apologize for my absence over the past couple of months. Between new jobs and multiple new devices coming out theres been work for all busy busy tech lovers. The majority of those tech lovers are currently at CES 2012 in Vegas. In Vegas you will find all of the new toys out on the market that everyone will be drooling over for the next 12 months.

Over the past couple of months a new handset was added to the arsenal-- The Droid Razr! It was a tough choice between it and the Nexus Prime but after having both handsets in hand and playing around I can say that the Razr was the right choice. The sleek design combined with the SD card slot, 10 megapixel camera, and 4G LTE in San Francisco have been great and surprisingly the battery life is quite nice. Moto Blur Smart Actions have a few nifty tricks to keep it running long after the rest are already dead.

I've Rooted, Safestrapped, and Flashed the newest RazrX Rom by DroidTh3ory and I can say it is beautiful. Keep posted as development for ICS and CM9 come headed this way for the RAZR and some news after CES has come to a close. The years off to a good start so lets see what it has to hold
