Do you want to install a new, custom ROM on rooted Droid Razr?
This is for Gingerbread, for ICS, please see here.
Well, here’s how to do it.
Step 1. First, make sure you’ve installed SafeStrap, and made at least one backup of your rooted stock ROM.
Next, download the ROM zip file (ROMs come in zip file format) and copy over to the internal storage or SD card of your Droid Razr by connecting it to your computer and putting it in “USB Mass Storage” mode.
Step 2. Copy over the ROM zip file as I am doing here, don’t unzip the ROM zip file!
Step 3. This should take like a minute depending on the size of your ROM file.
Step 4. Turn off your phone.
Step 5. Once in Recovery, if your Recovery says “Safe System is: DISABLED”, you will want to enable it first.
Step 6. Choose “Safe boot menu”.
Step 7. Choose “Toggle Safe System”.
Step 8. Choose “Yes”.
Step 9. It should now say “Enabled”.
Step 10. Choose “Go Back”.
Step 11. Choose “wipe data/factory reset”.
Step 12. Choose “Yes”.
Step 13. Choose “wipe cache partition”.
Step 14. Choose “Yes”.
Step 15. Choose “mounts and storage”.
Step 16. Choose “format /system”.
Step 17. Choose “Yes”.
Step 18. Choose “Go Back”.
Step 19. Choose “advanced”.
Step 20. Choose “Wipe Dalvik Cache”.
Step 21. Choose “Yes”.
Step 22. Choose “Go Back”.
Step 23. Choose “install zip from sdcard”.
Step 24. Choose “choose zip from sdcard”.
Step 25. Choose “Internal SD card” or “External SD card” depending on where you copied the ROM zip file earlier.
Step 26. Choose the ROM zip file, mine in this example is RAZRX_V1.0_SIGNED_PUBLIC.zip.
Step 27. Choose “Yes”.
Step 28. Once the ROM finishes installing, choose “reboot system now” and cross your fingers that your Droid Razr boots.
Step 29. You should get a custom boot animation.
Step 30. If your ROM boots, congratulations! You’ve installed a new ROM!
