Smartphone need to be updated. Users of Motorola defy Smartphone are lucky enough to get a new custom ROM firmware updater though not official but effective with many features. Since, it is not developed by the owned company, it has many defects like in torch based screen and so, but the users have no option as there is not any information when the official Android 4.0 firmware will be available.
Basic information for the updating: To complete our aim of updating, our device must be rooted as this firmware only works on the Rooted Firmware. This can be confirmed using the app called “Root Checker” which is available on play store and can be downloaded from it. Also, when our device is rooted the warranty of the device is lost which can be taken back by using it with any official firmware. Also, if you need to know about the present version on which the firmware is working, you can get this by using “about phone” section of your phone.
Before updating, must check that there must have 60% battery in your phone so complete our task without any hindrance. Also check, that all your security apps are disabled and the USB debugging mode is enabled so that no type of interference is experienced during the process.
So this was the basic information you must know before starting the process. Now, let me give you a brief introduction about the custom firmware by letting you know about its features. These are:
- It has a Wifi Power Save mode with different types of Wifi and GPS settings.
- It has Goggle supported apps like Goggle Play Music and Goggle Play Store up to date and some updated apps like Goggle maps, market and music.
- It is based on the 2.4.20 version, Custom Recovery 126.96.36.199, Extended Settings Mod 2.3.2.
- It has a 3-D gallery with the CM7camera support and with some sound features like no camera sound or extra sound files.
- It also has some extra booting features like 4 way boot mod and second boot settings.
- It has been supported with Aroma Installer Mit touch support,Batterysupport, V6 Super Charger Script Support.
- It has CPU features like: DroidX CPU governors.
Now, to apply the updating process, first we have to ensure our data is secured. For this, we have to maintain a back-up of our data manually which can be done as:
- For SMS: you can go to “SMS backup and Restore app”.
- For contacts: you can create a backup by synchronising it with the Gmail.
- For calls logs: use “call log and restore” app.
- For images, videos, music files, songs: these can be copied to the external or internal memory storages like SD card.
- For others like MMS and APN settings: go to “applications then settings then wireless and network to mobile networks and finally to Access Point Names” for creating the backup.
Now we are done with all the formalities, lets start with the process of final updating. There are the steps.
