Back a few months ago, I wrote an article explaining the top reasons why you shouldn’t buy a cheap smartphone. While I still hold true to the principle that you should always go for the highest-end smartphone you can afford, the actual reality is that many people simply can’t even afford to buy a mid-end smartphone (catch a list of the top mid-end smartphones of 2012 here), not to mention a top-end Android smartphone. And then, there’s the category of people that simply don’t want and need the ultimate best in Android smartphones. In these situations, the only remaining choice is to go for a cheap smartphone.
Judging on the fact that a top-end Android smartphone is [...]
If you want to upgrade your Motorola Droid X with the custom ROMs that’s getting leaked with Ice Cream Sandwich, you’ve come to the right place. This guide will teach you how you can install Clockwork Mod Recovery on your device. If you do not have this on your phone, you won’t be able to install the custom ROM in it.

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 [...]
Motorola Android phones are some of the toughest devices to root. Most of time, the rooting methods for such devices are complicated and hard for newbies to follow. Tutorials such as one-click procedures are sought-after especially if there are ADB commands involved in the process.
However, if you own a Motorola Droid X, you will be happy to know that you can still root your device without breaking a sweat. Some developers from RootzWiki have come up with a special procedure that achieves the same as the one-click process that you are familiar with. Known as the One-Click root tool, it will help Droid X owners root their devices with ease. This tool uses the Droid 3 [...]
It would appear as though certain Android phones will be treated to Google’s instant search. This technology has recently hit the full desktop variety of Google’s web-portal. We’re sure you are fully aware of Google instant search, but in case you are not, it is a new search enhancement that shows results as you type.
The general benefit afforded by this type of search process is that you can find what you want quicker by not having to type in the whole search phrase. On the Desktop, this is probably a little beneficial, but it goes without saying that on the mobile this could be really [...]
Today, Verizon Wireless are pushing Over The Air (OTA) updates to anyone with a Droid X Motorola Android device.
If you own a Motorola Droid X on Verizon and you [...]
Motorola are making the headlines recently left, right and center, but it isn’t necessarily all good news as far as the Android communities are concerned. It turns out that they are trying to clamp down on leaked Android 2.2 upgrades for the Droid X with a Cease and Desist order. MDW are obliging and removing the hosted files off their servers. It will be really interesting to learn whether Motorola are honestly trying to protect the consumer by preventing a ‘non-final’ build hitting their devices, or whether it is simply a more protectionist approach and red-tape.
It is fairly well known that the boot-loader on the [...]
