Back to Stock

November 9, 2012

After playing with the phone for a bit, I managed to get wifi working. However, I lost cellular data. Gah!!

After spending a lot more time, I had no luck getting the cell data working. So, I had to flash my way back to a stock ROM.  Well, at least I’m still rooted.

If you’ve never rooted or jailbroken a device before, I recommend you don’t start. I would compare it to jumping off a cliff holding onto a kite hoping you fly. If it works, it’s exciting. When things look like they are falling apart, its a rush. When you realize that you’ve just bricked a device, it’s devastating.

CyanogenMod 9 on Motorola Atrix 4G

November 7, 2012

Around mid September 2012, I flashed CyanogenMod 7 onto my Motorola Atrix 4G. It took me a couple days to find apps that provided the services/functionality that I was missing from Motoblur. But, overall, I think I liked CyanogenMod better. Except for one part: my wifi stopped working.

I just now finished flashing CyanogenMod 9 onto my phone. What was the first thing I checked? Does my wifi work? Nope. ARGH!

So, now I’m wondering if I have a hardware issues. Or, perhaps I need some additional drivers for CyanogenMod to operate my wifi antennae.
