    Hey what’s the name of the file that I should run in the zip folder? THANKS! this will be the first ROM I install. Had nexus and loved it except the battery and service issues. Can’t wait to have best of both worlds!

  2. Tyler says:

    This one is great! so far everything worked that I tried. You’re awesome! Thanks for all your help!

  3. Abel Ramirez says:

    great rom, but how can i get some of the blur and verizon apps back like my hotspot?

  4. Tyler says:

    If you backed it up you can recover it. Also if you are paying for it, stop! you can tether for free using a root app now. Or you can go to SETTINGS, and select TETHERING & MOBILE HOTSPOT to access it it manually.

  5. carlos says:

    Can I install with SafeStrap 1.7?

  6. carlos polidura says:

    interestingly enough, the download for this rom was split into two separate files so I was unable to flash. Hmmm.

  7. tyler says:

    Been using this for a week now and its great! So much better than stock. One question though, what do the buttons next to the sound on/off button control in the notification screen. They both look like sync on/off.

  8. mk says:

    Hi,

    my Razr is 2.3.6 rooted with motofail. and my system version is 65.1.40.xt910.MEReatail.en.06.
    is it possible to install the new ICS ROM or upgrade to oddicail ICS, or do i need to make other changes.

  9. Acogs says:

    When I switch from safemode to non-safe mode, or visa versa, it seems to use about 1 GB of eMMC memory. Once that eMMC gets full, I cannot switch into or out of safemode. Is there a way I can clear out some eMMC data without having to format the thing?

  10. randyo says:

    Nice batch file… and thanks for putting all the files in one zip…. One thing, you might want to include a bit of nomenclature for the non-initiated.. It used to be that unless you kind of knew your way around a smart phone, you were not going to be rooting one..

    Today, anyone can do it and I had a buddy look up the sight and he was sort of in the dark about some basics.. ICS for instance.. All the same.. good job on the site..

  11. Matthew Johnson says:

    After following the instructions in your video I got my phone to begin booting with Eclipse but it got stuck at the screen where the blue Android guy has a sparkly blue circle spinning around him. At first I thought the first boot would just take a long time so I went to bed. But when I woke up it was still booting. Any ideas on what is wrong?

    • Tyler says:

      You most likely didn’t do a factory reset before you installed the ROM. same thing happened to me.

      • Acogs says:

        Did you use SafeStrap to do the “wipe data/factory” reset?

        • Tyler says:

          yes, go back to safestrap, do the wipe and then install the rom again. it should work fine. it will take close to 10 min for the first reboot but after that it will boot fine.

    • Acogs says:

      Happened to me too. I just forced the phone off (power button + both volume keys, hold for like 6 seconds) and then restored the non-safe backup I did and got it back to normal. Haven’t tried Eclipse again yet.

  12. Soap says:

    Thanks for the links, Love it a lot better the stock, only thing I don’t like is that you can’t set the phone above 5mp.

  13. Tyler says:

    I should have asked about this before I tried it, but not a huge deal. I made a backup of this ROM after putting my own feel to it. After checking out another ROM I went back to my own version of this. and a ton of stuff didn’t work so now I’m about to re-flash this ROM in it’s original form. Is this normal? Should I be able to make backups of custom ROMs after I have added my own apps and customized the home screen?

  14. Alex says:

    I tried installing the Eclipse ROM and did it successfully. However, when I rebooted I get the little android guy with a blue circle that is constantly spinning. It has been doing this for a very LONG time and still no home screen. Is there a reason for this and does it eventually end?

  15. Alex says:

    D’oh! Thanks!

  16. tyler says:

    I did it manually in TB. You might need to the pay version to batch it, but not sure.

  17. Thom says:

    The ROM’s Camera app only supports up to 5 megapixels, which could be a problem if you’re someone like me who uses their RAZR to take a lot of photos. Does anyone know of any 3rd party camera apps that will allow me to utilize the RAZR’s 8mp camera?

  18. Fubar says:

    Hey Max, nice site. I really like your videos. They are informative and help a lot for us noobs who aren’t quite sure what to do.

    I installed the Eclipse rom on my maxx several weeks ago, and not long after I decided to try a different wallpaper, which replaced the eclipse wallpaper, but now I cannot get back to the eclipse wallpaper. I don’t see it in my wallpaper folder anywhere, nor can I find it in the zip file. I’ve tried reinstalling the rom but it just always goes back to the other wallpaper.

    Any ideas?

  19. Tyler says:

    After testing this rom for a few weeks as well as a couple others I have ran across I have found none have the battery life of the stock ICS rom. I tried to make other tweaks an used apps to underclock the processor to see if I could match it and I could not. Just wondering if anyone has had the same experience. I have only been back to stock for 5 hours and noticed a huge difference on battery life. I have to give it up to Moto for doing something perfect!

  20. Bosco says:

    Hey Zedomax, I installed the Eclipse ICS ROM, and I dont know if that is the reason but I keep hearing a beeping while in phone conversations?

    Any idea, or do you know of another ROM that has better security?

    I went to the google settings and looked for overseas calls settings which I found an article on but google must of changed the page layout because its no longer where it was.

    Thanks for everything.

  21. Jacob says:

    Hey i tried the rom but when i got to have it start up the blue circle with Andy is all i get to. I am currently on it on ics. It takes forever to do safeboot system thing

  22. Jeff says:

    Does anybody know how to get rid of the black theme for the gmail app, or better yet how to update the gmail app to the current version? It tells me I need to uninstall gmail, but I see no way to do that.

  23. Jim Sassin says:

    Does anyone know what visual voice mail I can use with eclipse ROM

  24. Jake says:

    Will this work with safestrap 2.11?
    Thanks in advance!

    • Acogs says:

      In response to jake, I recommend upgrading to safe strap 3.05. The flashing is much easier and you can create multiple rom slots so you can install multiple roms, while simultaneously keeping your stock rom! You can then test out a rom and if you don’t like it, you can switch immediately back to your stock rom within seconds! Its awesome.

      • Jake says:

        Is there an easy way to upgrade from 2.11 to 3.05?

        • Acogs says:

          Download v3.05 first, and then open the 2.11 app you have and hit uninstall recovery. You don’t have to uninstall the app after that, just in case you decide to switch back. I’ll see if I can find the link I used for SS3.05 and post it here

  25. Jake says:

    Nvm! I figured out how to replace. Very simple. Thanks for the advice.

    • Acogs says:

      Oh OK great! Good luck

      • Jake says:

        One other question..when creating new Rom slots, what should the data partition size be set to?

        • Acogs says:

          Well I.recommend at.least 2gigs since you can’t really install much in the form if apps if you use any less than that. And you can always delete the partition if you decide you don’t like the rom. Just note that the amount you devote to the rom takes away from the stock rom. My RAZR is only 8 gigs internal storage so a 2 gig partition is 25% of that, bringing my stock rom storage to only 6 gigs.

        • Acogs says:

          Also make sure the check boxes arenuncheckedbbeforebyou flash. Sometimes it gives an error if you force check the md5 sums and whatever the other task is.

  26. Jake says:

    It says at the top “This operation may install incompatible software and render your device unusable”. Does it always say that? I downloaded the Razr-Eclipsev1.2 file. Would you say that it is safe to flash on the Maxx?

    • Acogs says:

      Yeah I think it says that everytime you flash something. Mainly because that is true! ALWAYS have a working backup in nonsafe mode (stock rom). In this case, you should be fine. And with SS3.05 you can just re-activate the stock rom at any time, even if the installed custom ROM doesnt work. If you get the black screen of death or a boot loop, just force the reboot by holding power + up + down volume buttons, then enter the recovery and either re-flash, or try a different version, or delete the rom slot altogether. As long as you have a backup, trial and error is a good way to learn! I also recommend your phone being at least 70% charged as well, because sometimes the phone wont charge in recovery mode, and if you brick your phone and the battery dies you will be screwed until you can get a motorola factory cable (purchaseable on amazon, but they ship from china so you’ll be twiddling your thumbs for about 4 weeks until it arrives). Might be a good idea to just get one of those for emergencies.

      I think SS3.05 allows you to charge while in recovery mode though, which solves that problem. I don’t completely trust that though, since 3.05 is still in beta mode.

      • Jake says:

        I have made my working backup in nonsafe mode. Just to be sure that I understand correctly, do I enter into recovery and toggle “Safe mode” BEFORE flashing my new Rom? I thought I had read that somewhere. I have been researching this non-stop for about 48 hours straight lol I can’t break my phone.

        • Acogs says:

          With SS3.05 you don’t toggle “safe mode” per se, but instead you go into boot options I believe and activate the rom slot you created. Then go into the Wipe menu and do factory reset, wipe the system, and then wipe cache. Then you flash the rom (and sometimes Google apps zip file if the ROM requires that, which Eclipse does not since they are included in the ROM zip). Then after you flash the ROM zip, it should give you an option to wipe the cache again which is a good idea. I think some roms wont boot properly if you don’t wipe cache after flashing. I don’t really know what cache is, but I think it is just temporary files created during certain processes that are unnecessary after the flashing is complete, so wiping cache is harmless. I actually wipe cache in the stock rom slot periodically because for some reason ICS can get a little buggy overtime and causes the apps and such to load slowly when unlocking the screen or exiting a large app.

          The key here is to make sure that you don’t wipe the stock rom slot because that would require a restore to get your stock ROM back. Simply activate the new rom slot (I like to rename it with the name of the ROM I plan on installing). The current rom slot you are in is displayed at the top.

          • Acogs says:

            So just to be clear, the steps are:

            Create ROM slot and name it

            Activate ROM slot if its not already active

            Perform the wipes (Factory reset, system, cache in that order)

            Flash zips ( SS3.05 lets you queue up multiple zips: ROM first, then google apps, then the titanium backup zip of your apps if you know how to do that. I highly recommend purchasing Titanium Backup and using the zip style backup function the purchased app has. You can do some googling to figure that out, its not too complicated)

            Wipe cache

            Reboot

            If the first boot takes more than 10 minutes something is wrong. Most likely its due to an improper wiping order, or the safestrap version is wrong, or the ROM file isnt compatible with your device)
