    Installed NottachTrix rom on my Atrix and its decent, very fast and stable. Had to use a touch screen capable recovery because the installer used touch, other than that i can keep my stuff when upgrading to a newer version of rom.
    Probably the best rom right now for the Motorola Atrix.

    Okay fellas, I'm panicking a bit here.

    I rooted my Desire Z for the first time today. Before doing anything stupid, I obtained temp-root and backed up everything with Titanium Backup. Or so I thought. It lasted a long freaking time, but I didn't remember to check the sdcard because Titanium backup showed everything to be backed up.

    Then I downgraded from 2.3.3 to 2.2 and rooted. Now Titanium Backup can't find the backed up data and the folder on the sdcard is empty.

    Everything else is mostly irrelevant stuff, but are all contact info saved and synced somewhere or did I just lose all of them?

    If you have it synced up with a Google account, then your contacts should come back when you log back in to Google. At least it did that for me when I replaced one phone and later when I upgraded to another.

    It was synced to a Google account. I can't seem to get it to sync the contacts back though.
    The sync settings are set to sync automatically and I even forced it to sync again.
    Nothing shows up though.

    EDIT: I can't find the contacts from gmail either. It seems I've lost them all.

    Would ICS decrease the perf of a Galaxy SII. I know the new UI and all extra things are great, but it's a bigger resource hog than GB, unless they optimized it so good it out performs GB. Anyone have a GSII flashed to ICS run a quadrant bench for me? I get 3900-4000 GB 2.3.6 stock :)

    You will not be let down, an amazing phone! IMO more of a pocket pc than a phone! Remember when you get it to update it to 2.3.6 by going Settings>About phone>Software Update>Update.

    It's one amazing phone, I can play 1080p videos on youtube off the phones browser :3 and flash games work perfectly aswell!

    Log into Gmail manually from desktop/laptop. Go to contacts. Export contacts as .vcf (card file). This will save the file locally. Get that file into phone, and import through phonebook/contacts.

    Or, log in to Gmail through browser and switch to desktop mode(at bottom of page). This will allow you to see contacts through the browser.

    I know this because I rarely use sync , or sign in my phone.

    Another handy bit I found out if you don't/can't get market (play)... keep a copy of astro in an email. The new flavors of ics don't include a file explorer.

    Thanks. I checked the Gmail contacts, but it seems that the contacts weren't synced at all from the phone. I thought that was automatic, but didn't seem like it. Where/how do I set it to sync the contacts?

    I managed to pull most of my contacts from the old phone. I just lost the ones from the last six months or so.

    OK, first get astro file manager or file expert from play. I'm not sure how your phone sets up its file tree, but look for a folder in root called /mnt. Then /sdcard. Then something that looks like it belongs to titanium backup.

    THEN, back to the market to get a fresh copy of TB. Uninstall if you must. Btw, congratulations, you just got me to log in my phone to the play store to get TB.

    Now, go back to astro...look in /mnt/emmc for something like titanium backup. Or, /mnt/external_SD. Its tough to know where to point you.

    Really what I'm getting at is just look around your phone for the TB backup. Once (if) you find it, you can tell TB where it is.

    OK, if that doesn't pan out, the sync option is under accounts & sync. Click the address. Select what you will. I also saw something about backup & restore, but I think it has to do with .apk's data.

    "A Droid App"? This is the second bundle that's actually multi-platform! Awesome idea, if I had been interested in any of the games I'd have it instantly.

    Ok, so i now have a samsung galaxy S i9000 on firmware gingerbread.XWJVN


    the proximity sensor is bad, and a custom firmware based on ICS (http://www.galnetmiui.co.uk/content/) has a button to disable/fix it, until i can do a hardware fix to the phone (cheap, but not fast since i gotta get the headphone jack/sensor from overseas)


    Can someone please help me jailbreak and update the firmware on this phone?

    edit: seems relevant
    http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1754052&p=6#r115


    edit: so its debranded and rooted now. proximity sensor is dud ($5 part on ebay) so for now i need to disable that, which stock firmware cant do. i get an error flashing to the galnetMIUI firmware above, about file signatures being invalid - google says there should be an option to disable that, but i'm not seeing it. help?

    edit: this page has a firmware with a different version of CWM already included, so i'll try that.

    Man Mussels, I think we call it rooting, as jailbreak is apple-only. ;)

    Yesterday I rooted my ICS'ed Transformer, it didn't work until I plugged it into a good ole USB2 port instead of the Etron USB3 port... What a useles headache!

    Edit: I also have that recent CWM version 5, it seems ok.
