Do you have to first root / unlock the phone to accomplish this?
Really ??? The first bullet of the Requirements and Reminders list – yes!
Camera doesnt work, front ou rear, but the ICS is Beautiful !!!!
do u have to restore backup after it reboots or does that already occur during process?
I make it to step 4, but when I get the triangle around the exclamation point with the little droid, touching the lower right portion of my screen doesn’t seem to do anything. Any suggestions?
not in the lower part of the screen…the updated atrix running gingerbread you must press power button to get menu
I did what you suggested, but the screen is still stuck at the screen in which the triangle+exclamation point+droid are visible. What else could I have done wrong?
it doesnt work that way, i found the correct one is to press volume down and volume up at the same time
Hey, thank you. I found different workarounds, and I am on CM 7 now.
will my car dock still work? will I still get the same big button interface?
for future reference, the car dock would not even CHARGE my phone anymore. I depend heavily on the GPS app when I am in new places and I can’t have my phone draining. ICS is beautiful, but looks like I gotta wait.
I’m not a total noob – I’ve run CM 6 on my old HTC Aria, and I’ve run CM7 and MIUI on my Atrix. But I’ve never heard of “Bragging mode x2 oc/uv enabled”. What exactly is “Bragging Mode”???
it is kind of disrespectful to download a rom from another site(xda) and not reference where you got it. this is not your work. upon reading some of your other threads you have done this with everything on this site. The version you downloaded and wrote this blog post about is now out of date because you didn’t link to the developers. here is a link to the current thread with downloads that are up to date. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1445052
but in fact jokers rom.. the kang you posted is far behind the work available here
