The purpose of this thread is to provide XT925 owners with links and instructions on how to install the TWRP v126.96.36.199 custom recovery (touch version).
I take absolutely no credits at all for this. I don't know who ported TWRP for the XT925. All links and instructions come from this post from m.pierce. Many thanks to him/her.
- A Motorola RAZR HD XT925 with an unlocked bootloader
- Fastboot command line executables for Windows, Linux and Mac
- The TWRP recovery image
- [Optional] The Root.zip package (i.e install this package through the recovery to root your device)
1/ Boot up your device in Fastboot Mode (while your device is on, hold Vol-/Vol+/Power buttons for a few seconds until the screen turns black, then release Power. Another few seconds later comes up the boot menu. Release Vol-/Vol+, then quickly press Vol- a few times to highlight "Fastboot" then Vol+ to trigger it).
2/ Back to your computer, make sure your fastboot files and the recovery image are in the same directory in order to proceed with the flashing, then run the fastboot command from a console/terminal:
fastboot flash recovery twrp-hdrecovery.img
For instance, if you want to root the currently installed ROM, you would install the Root.zip package.
HOW TO SWITCH TO THE CUSTOM RECOVERY?
While your device is on, hold Vol-/Vol+/Power buttons for a few seconds until the screen turns black, then release Power. Another few seconds later comes up the boot menu. Release Vol-/Vol+, then quickly press Vol- a few times to highlight "Recovery" then Vol+ to trigger it.
