Info 2 [INDEX] Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX Resources and Features Guide [08/18/2012]

Welcome guide to the Droid Razr/Maxx Development Section.

Here you'll find current resources and features available to your device (If you made something new, please let me know so I can add to OP).

Initial information about your device

1. Motorola Razr and Motorola Razr Maxx (XT910 Model) were named respectively Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx (XT912 Model) by Verizon. (I'll call it just Razr)
Both devices shares same hardware, except the radio driver/kernel, which is CDMA/LTE for Verizon version (XT912) and GSM/UMTS for International version (XT910).
This means you can only flash a ROM (custom or stock) that has being build to your Razr baseband. (Bellow you'll find a link to use CMDA custom ROMs over the GSM version)

2. All the Razr variants have a forever locked bootloader. (There's a developer version not covered here)
This means you can only flash official ROMs and use a limitated number of things. Untill a hack called kexec be released which will bypass the bootloader and let you flash a custom kernel enabling other features.

3. All the devices are divided by regions.
This means you can only flash a stock ROM designated for your Razr region.
Common Regions are: Latam (Latim America 'n Canada) - Europe - Asia - PSHAsia - ME - China - Korea - Japan(*)

Warning: By flashing a ROM or rooting your Razr voids Motorola Warranty Terms. Even if you flash the same rom your Razr came with.

Europe, Asia, PSHAsia and ME shares same region signature verification (ODD: you can flash any of the ROMs between it)

You'll find more information about ROMs in THIS THREAD.

*Note:Other variants of the Motorola Razr can't be covered on this guide because we don't have nothing specific to it on XDA - If you have something, let me know.
**Every region have also some subdivisions which is not covered on this Index because we don't have any specific work on XDA to it.

Q: You didn't say all the regions/models of the Motorola Razr. Why is that?
A: Not all regions could be indexed because we don't have any specific work, files or information to it @ XDA.
Some subdivisions and not covered regions (It's an example):
  • Korea: XT910k; XT910S. (Found an OLD firwmare - It's on the thread)
  • Japan: XT909
  • Europe: nonEFGIS (All the european coutries except: England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain); EMEA (Europe, Midlle East, Australia).
Every region have subdivisions and also carriers. But it are all compatible each other:
Canada: Rogers; Fido
Asia, PSHAsia, AsiaRetail
Brasil: Claro (AmericaMovil), Vivo, OI, Tim, Retail... Etc.
We have yet: Latam and Retail.

That's the most reason I couldn't index all the variants of the Razr. Even the XDA Section can't be accurate. The 'Droid' Razrs are only those from Verizon, for instance.

If you find anything related to these not indexed devices. let me know an I'll link to the thread.

Q: If I flash a ROM for the exactly region of my Razr I'll void warranty terms?
A: Pretty much, yest! By flashing a ROM or rooting your Razr definitively voids Motorola Warranty Terms. Doens't matter if you have a carrier device or a region specific device. Flashing a ROM is not covered by Motorola Warranty.

It's clearly stated in letter (e) of the Motorola Warranty terms:

"(e) Unauthorized Service or Modification. Defects or damage resulting from service, testing, adjustment,
installation, maintenance, alteration, or modification in any way, including but not limited to tampering with or altering the software, by someone other than Motorola, or its authorized service centers, are excluded from coverage. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Product which has had its bootloader unlocked, or whose operating system has been altered, including any failed attempts to unlock the bootloader or alter such operating system, is not covered by this warranty, regardless of whether such modifications are authorized, approved, or otherwise sanctioned by Motorola. "

Q: Motorola can see if I have either flashed a ROM or get rooted?
A: Yes, they can. And seems there's nothing you can do about it. The log of background process of altering in any way the original system is sent to Motorola. Look for a file called 'qe' in your device. Also, bug2go.

Thanks

you missed the rare variant

i'll edit this later


cdma_spyder
  • xt908 - ACG-CS US
  • xt909 - KDDI JP | CDMA + GSM
  • xt912 - VRZ US | CDMA + GSM + LTE

umts_spyder
  • xt910 - Multi carrier, divided into region
  • xt910s - SKT KR | GSM + LTE
  • xt910k - KT KR

all variant run the same soc & baseband chip (except for LTE)
difference lies in firmware (locked by different security signature for each region)

SOC : OMAP 4340 + SGX 540
BASEBAND : MDM6600

XT909 : KAIZEN 0.1 - BMM 0.3.2
TF101 : PACman beta

The problem is, we don't have any files here in XDA for those Models right? How could I index it? Do you have any OTA or something to share?

Thanks

yes but note that the europe variant versions en.eu nonefigs may be flashed one over the other but if u flash an nonefigs specific device an en.eu rom will put you out of warranty. what i mean is that there are regional subcategories that void warranty if switched

that's the point. just put a big fat warning to remind such owners.
rare variant = no leaked fastboot, less owner interaction in this forum.(maybe low sales volume too)
most user in this forum have either xt910 or xt912

p/s: I bricked mine in day 3 before I learned enough about Razr (spyder) & the differences between them

XT909 : KAIZEN 0.1 - BMM 0.3.2
TF101 : PACman beta

Flashing any ROM, in theory, would void warranty. Even rooting your phone is against warranty terms.

Almost any modification you do to your device voids warranty.

This means you don't have either a fastboot or an OTA? Sent you a PM.
