Here’s good news for the owners of the Motorola Droid Bionic XT875. The Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) custom ROM based on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware has been released for the device and is now available for download.
The new Android 4.2.2 AOKP Build 4 Jelly Bean custom ROM for the Motorola Droid Bionic XT875 is based on the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) release of Android 4.2.2. The users, who are willing to flash the custom firmware, need to have a custom ClockWorkMod (CWM) recovery installed on their devices.
With a bundle of customization features for the Droid Bionic, the Android 4.2.2 AOKP Build 4 Jelly Bean custom ROM allows users “to experience the latest Jelly Bean” on their devices “without having to wait for the official firmware to get released,” Team Android reported.
In order to install the custom Jelly Bean firmware on the Motorola Droid Bionic, users must connect the device to a computer. To facilitate the connection, USB drivers for the Droid Bionic will have to be installed on the computer. If your computer does not have the required USB drivers installed, you can download them from here.
Below is a tutorial, explaining how to install the Android 4.2.2 AOKP Build 4 Jelly Bean custom ROM on the Motorola Droid Bionic XT875. But before you proceed, there are certain vital aspects to consider:
- Backup all your data, settings and apps
- The device should have at least 80 percent battery power
- The USB Debugging must be enabled
- Backup your EFS Folder
- The device must be rooted and have ClockWorkMod Recovery installed. A backup using that is also strongly recommended
Users should also note that this tutorial is for factory unlocked Android phones. Therefore, it should not be tried on phones that are locked to a carrier.
In addition, IBTimes cannot be held responsible if anything goes wrong. Users should proceed at their own risk.
Step 2: Connect the Motorola Droid Bionic to the computer and mount USB (mass) memory using the USB cable.
Step 3: Copy and paste the downloaded files to the SD card. Ensure that the files are in the SD card root.
Step 4: Download ROM Manager app from Google Play Store.
Step 5: Open ROM Manager app and tap on “Reboot into Recovery” to boot into Recovery Mode.
Step 6: In ClockWorkMod recovery, perform a full data wipe. To do so, select the wipe data/ factory reset, then select Yes on next screen to confirm your action. Wait for a few minutes till the data wipe is completed.
Step 7: Now, scroll down to “flash zip from SD card” and press the Power button to select it.
Step 8: Once again, press the Power button and select “choose zip from sdcard.”
Step 9: Use the Volume keys to go to the Android 4.2.2 ROM zip file copied to the SD card. Select it using the Power button. Confirm installation by selecting Yes – Install _____.zip on the next screen.
Step 10: Once the ROM installation is done, repeat the step 9 but choose the Google Apps zip file instead of ROM zip to install the Google apps package.
Step 11: After the installation is done, go back to the main recovery menu and select “reboot system now” to reboot the phone. The first boot may take some time.
