I'm new to the unlocking of android world and I need some guidance as to the process on unlocking a phone properly to minimize the chance of bricking the phone.
I have a Motorola RAZR HD XT925 and its just running so horrible. When I connect to Wifi, the phone gets hot and it lags for days. When I'm not on Wifi it still gets its episodes of running so... slow... It is a constant daily piss off and a struggle. I have been trying to read up on the step by step process on unlocking an android phone but I just cant find out the whole process and quite frankly, I'm a little confused as to when to flash certain things. If you guys can help me on the following:
1. The process laid out in steps
2. Best way to backup my phone (copying photos/videos, etc onto computer?)
3. When to root
4. When/how to flash boot loader
5. Which custom ROM is best for my phone which gives tweakability (new english word)
I found this link to a forum discussion on this site here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2247250. I am unsure what do to with all of it and where to start.
My phone is incredibly frustrating at the moment. I keep the phone clean so Im not sure why its acting like a 1980's prototype. I just want all factory **** off and my own custom ROM on it so it can run the way it should.
Thank you all in advance.
