Drive Motorola Fire XT316/XT311/XT317/XT530/XT531/XT532 - All About It


Hello Fire owners!
I open this thread to keep all things of Fire together, only one thread, everything here.
So here we go:
THIS THREAD IS FOR MOTOROLA XT311/XT316/XT317, XT530/XT531, XT532 AND XT611 (aka SMARTFLIP) ONLY. IF YOU HAVE A SIMILAR THREAD, PLEASE PM ME AND PASS ME YOUR POST. LET'S KEEP XDA ORGANIZED!

CWM FOR FIRE XT XT530/XT532, SPICE XT XT531, FIRE XT311, SPICE KEY XT316 OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED
This thread was focused in the 2nd-Init for XT31X and XT530, 531 and 532. For almost six months, we worked patientlly to get the CWM working on our devices. The wait for CWM is OFFICIALLY OVER. In a couple days ago, our friend aweosomeabhijeet found a way to run CWM on Gingerbread. The tutorial (made by himself) will be posted NOW:

Hey Guys
All your wait is over.
Here I'll tell you how to get CWM for Moto Fire XT.

Disclaimer : I'm not responsible for any damage to your phone. I have tried it and finished successfully.
Try only if you know little bit about android.

This is beta version. However, a dev is working on not using a PC to reboot back into system, and is trying to make the installation simplified.
Lot of thanks to andrewidya

Required things
1. Rooted XT
2. Pc

Download these things on your phone:
1. Terminal emulator
2. Busybox(Open it and install)
3. Root browser
4. Pimp my Rom
5. ES file explorer
You can find all of them in the Play Store.

If you have done with it download the attachment.

Now main work.
It is not easy though but I think everyone can do it.

Steps:
1. Extract the attachment and copy it to your sdcard
2. Mount /system as RW.
3. Open Root Browser and copy bootmenu folder from sdcard/XT530 and paste it in /system.
4. Open Pimp My Rom and Add universal init.d support.

5.Create 97bootmenu manually.(For this using ES file explorer is recommended)
Steps:
a.Open /system/etc/init.d
b. Create a file, name it 97bootmenu.
c. Open the file as text
Type:
Code:

#!/system/bin/sh

stop
exec /system/bootmenu/binary/bootmenu

d.save the file

6. Change permissions of 97bootmenu to rwx r-- r--
7. Reboot your phone.
Now your phone will start at bootmenu.
Select Recovery>Custom Recovery

PS: If you want to get back the phone to boot normally. Just connect it to PC, open CMD and type
cd path-to-adb.exe
adb shell
rm -R /system/etc/init.d/97bootmenu
exit
adb reboot

I succeeded here's the video:

Sorry for poor camera quality.

Thanks to all the members.

Special Thanks to:
Gentrylamp for creating bootmenu.
7amdoun for his great knowledge and modding bootmenu for XT530.
andrewidya for correcting me at every point.
Mazen.kh for everything he did.
Mr.Indigo for giving us hopes.
And all other members whom I forgot to mention here.
This above quote is the 1ST post of his thread.
THANKS TO HIM AND TO ALL OF THE DEVELOPERS WHO HELPED TO GET THIS.


ROOTING & UNROOTING
You will follow this tutorial if you have 2.3.5 version of Android:
Quote:
Downloads:
Here are the apps/files needed for Rooting -
1. SuperOneClick 2.3.3.0
2. SUT LR 1.8.2 (Doesn't seem to be working on 64-bit systems)
3. FXX_PR3_NV.xml and NvDefinition.xml [ATTACHED]

Before Rooting:
Prepare your phone by doing the following:
- Go to Settings > Applications > CHECK "Unknown Sources"
- Go to Settings > Applications > Developer > CHECK "USB Debugging" and "Stay Awake"
- Connect your phone via USB, when prompted DO NOT select USB Mass Storage.
- Extract FXX_PR3_NV.xml and NvDefinition.xml from the attached zip file in to a folder

- Now, install SUT LR, run the app
- Select the FXX_PR3_NV.xml [ensure NvDefinition.xml is also in the same folder as FXX_PR3_NV.xml]
- Your phone will restart.

It does NOT erase anything on the phone, since it only patches the ROM.

Rooting:
After the phone restarts, open SuperOneClick and select root. It will take less than a minute to finish.

Arrow about CG2.smg

Hey man I'm interested in the thread and i can help you extracting the CG2.smg

Here you are my tut. [for windows] it worked for me

1- unrar the file in the attachments
2- make sure that your file is named to 'CG2.smg' without quotes for sure, and in the same folder..
3- just run the .bat and wait for cmd to finish the job then you will find a folder called 'CG2-extracted' in the same place you extracted my .rar file

Note: you will find in the folder called 'CG2-extracted' some mbn files, systemsec.mbn is the /system folder in the xt311/xt316
extract it easily using unyaffs like a system.img file, if you need help in this PM me. i can help you extracting systemsec.mbn only, i dunno about other files also to repack systemsec.mbn you'll need mkyaffs and i think it's usable on ubuntu only and i can't help you with it
sorry for long reply but press thanks if i helped.

Anytime Sir ! I just want to help in anyway getting this device better, By the way here's a list of useless applications so far !
- 7x27_FQC.apk
- Arabware.apk < 7 megabytes and useless
- Wifipowersavingmode.apk < I think it drains the battery faster -.-
- i also removed all motoswitch APKs, And installed go launcher instead in the system. And removed pre-installed live wallpapers

Also if you have errors like "preparing sd card - checking for errors" in the status bar you can delete system/bin/fsck_msdos since i deleted i get no errors for my partitioned sd card

Q/Request: Do you know how can i customize Notify led ? Like changing color and speed ? also it doesn't work with whatsapp!
Thanks anyway ! Ps. led works by Notifyled.apk.. of course you know xD

And Yeah, i found some srs files also, time ago, i thought it would be awesome to have a panel for it ! but maybe it's the normal speakers at the back and it's drivers..

No, i don't know, srry!
And we cannot use the control panel with the file incluided in the ROM. Needs a lot of files...
And i'm trying to por XT300 Toggle Widget to XT316. It will be harder but... it's beautiful!

Yeah, Motorola lock the bootloader, locks the customization and much more. We need a CWM. FASTER!
Edit: before 2.3 versions, Motorola odexed the roms. All of the files were odexed. But Motorola now deodexed everything. So it will be easier.
And i think we can port the CWM from XT300. So, let's try!

I didn't know that there was cwm for xt300, but i think, if there is cwm for xt530/xt531/xt532 it'd be easier to port, since xt53X is to close to our xt311/xt316 and it also have 2.3.5 while xt300 2.1 only

Edit: i think xt311/xt316 users will never have custom recoveries/roms unless the bootloader is unlocked, and it'll be so hard to unlock such bootloader since the phone is not popular
