28/3/2012
Added V4 of the Doomlord Exploit as may be why XL was rooted without bootloader being unlocked.

well i relocked my bootloader and flashed ruu 1.05.404 then I used Doolord V4 to root my phone. This was succesful in permanently rooting my phone without unlocking my bootloader. This was not possible with V2 so if anyone wants to root without unlocking bootloader this is now possible using V4 of the Doomlord Exploit attached below. PLEASE NOTE THAT STILL NEED TO UNLOCK BOOTLOADER TO FLASH CUSTOM ROMS AND RECOVERY

How to Upgrade Motorola Droid 3 to Android 4.0 ICS Using CyanogenMod 9



How to Upgrade Motorola Droid 3 to Android 4.0 ICS Using CyanogenMod 9


We’ve already heard a lot of stuff about how great Ice Cream Sandwich is. This has been proven further when the Samsung Galaxy Nexus came out. True enough, the latest version of Android is indeed one of the best, if not the best.
Many of us are already waiting for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for our devices. There are even those who are already saving up for brand-new Android devices, hoping to get ICS out of the box. A lot of us are really itching to get hold of this latest iteration of Google’s famous mobile OS.
Sadly though, a lot of the makers are not yet certain on when updates for ICS will be delivered to their respective devices. Many of them are targeting the first quarter of 2012, but even then, the schedule is not yet sure. Good thing we have the Android community. Thanks to these guys, some of us can now enjoy Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. People who own the Motorola Droid 3 are one of the lucky ones. The developers behind CyanogenMod just recently released the latest alpha version of the popular aftermarket ROM and it’s pretty much built around ICS. The latest CyanogenMod 9 just made it to the Motorola Droid 3. It is not yet a perfect match, but for sure it will get there.
For those Motorola Droid 3 owners who would like a taste of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, read on and check out the steps on how to install CyanogenMod 9 into your Droid 3.

Prerequisites

  • The Motorola Droid 3 should be rooted. For the rooting process, you can check out thislink.
  • There should be no Bootstrap apps installed on the device. Please uninstall the apps if there are any.
  • You need a PC that runs Windows Vista or Windows 7.
  • You also need at least 170 MB of free storage space in the device’s SD card storage.
  • The Droid 3 battery has to be fully charged to avoid interruptions.

Installing CyanogenMod 9

  1. Download and install the SafeStrap app to your phone. You can download it here.
  2. Run the SafeStrap app and then choose the “Install Recovery” option. A number will appear at the bottom of the screen after you tap “Install Recovery”. Make sure it is 0.92. If not, you should abort the process.
  3. Download the latest build of the CyanogenMod 9 ROM to your PC. Use this link to download.
  4. Connect the Droid 3 to your PC using the USB cable. Copy the ROM that you just downloaded into the root directory of the device’s SD card.
  5. Disconnect the phone from your PC and turn off the phone.
  6. Turn on the phone again and while it is booting up, you will see a splash screen. While the splash screen is still displayed, press the Menu key. This will put the device into recovery mode.
  7. Create a backup of your Droid 3 by choosing the appropriate options found under the recovery mode menu.
  8. Enable the “Safe System” option in the Safestrap menu.
  9. Then, go to the “Mount” menu and choose “Format system.”
  10. Install the CyanogenMod ROM. To do that, choose “Install ZIP from SD card” option, then choose the ZIP file containing the CyanogenMod ROM.
  11. After the installation completes, choose “Wipe data/factory reset” from the menu.
  12. Reboot your phone. It will now be running on CyanogenMod 9.
Since this is the alpha version of CyanogenMod 9 for Motorola Droid 3, there are some features that are not working properly yet and some don’t even work at all. One of the issues of this build is the device’s losing audio once Bluetooth is turned on. And, for now the camera is not yet working. All the rest seem to work quite well.
Now you have a way to tinker with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on your Motorola Droid 3. Having ICS on the Droid 3 is already a wish come true for many. It needs more improvements, but if you’re backed with an awesome community of developers, definitely things will always get better.
How’s ICS on your Motorola Droid 3?

How to Install Ice Cream Sandwich ROM on Motorola Droid X



How to Install Ice Cream Sandwich ROM on Motorola Droid X


Though released last year, the Motorola Droid X remains well-loved by those who own one. It was a popular phone during its time, although newer and more power Motorola phones have taken over its place. Can such an “old” phone still enjoy the latest and greatest release of Android? Apparently so.
Disappointed by the lack of developer attention to creating an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich build for the Motorola Droid X, a developer has decided to take matter into his own hands and whip up an ICS-based ROM for the Motorola Droid X. The ROM is called EncounterICS X and is a creation of firstEncounter, a member on the RootzWiki forums. The ROM is based on Android 4.0.1 and is still in continuous development, so there are still numerous rough edges.
For now, however, the following features are already working in the ROM:
  • Radio, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi
  • 2D (hardware accelerated) and 3D (still somewhat buggy)
  • Sensors (including rotation/accelerometer)
  • Audio (DSP force closes rarely, but still works)
  • SD Card
  • All hardware buttons
  • Charging
  • USB (including SD mounting)
If you have the boldness for a hacking adventure and if you understand the risks involved, you can flash EncounterICS X ROM to your Motorola Droid X. You’re going to need to root your Droid X first. Check out “How to Root Your Droid X Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread” for some tips on how to do that. Thereafter, you can easily flash the ROM in recovery mode. As usual, make sure you make backups first before you try flashing the ROM to your phone.
  1. Download EncounterICS X from here and save it to your computer.
  2. Download the Google Apps package (gapps) from here and save it to your computer.
  3. Copy the EncounterICS ROM and the Google Apps package to your phone’s storage.
  4. Turn off your phone. Turn it back on again.
  5. When the LED notification light turns blue while the phone is booting up, press the Volume Down key to go into the bootmenu. From the list of items on the menu, choose to go into recovery mode. You can use the volume keys to scroll through the options on the menu. Use the Power button to select an item on the menu.
  6. When in recovery mode, you can use the volume keys to scroll through items, but instead of the Power button, use the camera shutter button to select an option.
  7. Choose “Wipe data/factory reset” to clear your phone’s cache.
  8. Choose “Install zip from SDcard”, then select the ZIP file containing the ROM. Once you confirm to start flashing, the process will immediately start. Repeat this step for the Google Apps package.
  9. Wait for a few minutes for the flashing process to complete.
  10. Reboot your phone. Your Motorola Droid X should now be running EncounterICS X based on Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich.
As has been mentioned, this ROM is still buggy, so don’t expect everything to work perfectly. There are several known bugs with workarounds. Here are some of the known bugs and their respective workarounds:
  • ADB doesn’t work. Turn off the phone. Turn it back on again. While it is booting up, press the Volume Down key when the LED notification light turns blue. You will be taken to the bootmenu. From there, choose “Boot”, then select “2nd-init + adb” from the list. ADB should now work.
  • SD doesn’t mount over USB. Open Terminal Emulator. Run “su” (without the quotes), then run “echo /dev/block/mmcblk0 > /sys/devices/platform/usb_mass_storage/lun0/file” (also without the quotes). You can also issue the same commands via ADB.
  • Gallery app force closes when gapps is installed. Simply disable the “Sync Google-photos” option for all of your accounts.
  • Android Market doesn’t install apps. As root, issue the command “drmserver &” (without the quotes) in Terminal Emulator. Or, use ADB to issue the command “adb shell drmserver &” (again, without the quotes). The ROM developer has promised a fix for this bug in a newer version of the ROM.
  • Feature XYZ doesn’t work even if the documentation says it does.  Try rebooting the phone.  Some settings and options will activate or stick only after rebooting.  Rebooting can also sometimes make a buggy feature work.
As you can see, installing this ROM to the Droid X is not for the faint of heart, nor will it be a breeze for those with no rooting or flashing experience. Have you tried putting ICS on your Droid X? How did it go?
