Update for Jelly Bean

Haven't update this thread for so long since I don't own a Razr anymore. For easier installation, flash the attached zip in recovery. This will update to the Jelly Bean launcher. This is for Jelly Bean only and will only work with Jelly Bean. Best of luck to everyone.

As last night I found out most of the apps and launcher on the Motorola Razr M can be install on the Droid Razr pretty easily. So here is the full instruction on how to get those apps on your Razr :D.

* Work on any custom ROM, CM9, CM10 or tablets

1. Go to system/app and rename the following file:

Weather.apk to Weather.bak

MotGallery.apk to MotGallery.bak

BlurCamera.apk to BlurCamera.bak

2. Download and installation:

Laucher: http://www.mediafire.com/?vac3w2o3ez4e8f7

- Copy launcher to system/app
- Set permission to RW-R-R
- Tap on the the file just copied and do a double installation to overwrite system app (this way Circle Widgets will work/ even after reboot, GPS toggle wont force close)

Circle Widget 3D: http://www.mediafire.com/?za571x2hm3rm2fm
- Install as normal app if fail push to system and set permission

Weather: http://www.mediafire.com/?qnfx8x5w3bassy3
- Install as normal app if fail, copy to system and set permission (only fail because you didn't follow my tutorial) ;)

Gallery: http://www.mediafire.com/?2lo0p6ig9cwi4pg
- Copy to system/app and set permission to RW-R-R

Camera: http://www.mediafire.com/?9zcbh423ttwe9we
-Copy to system/app and set permission to RW-R-R

Messaging: http://www.mediafire.com/?al3n9i9k5213i1a
- Install as normal app, if fail push to system and rename existing Messaging.apk to Messaging.bak before copy to system app and set permission

Email: http://www.mediafire.com/?7jxaw9xqncjhurw
- Install as normal app

QuickView (notification count): http://www.mediafire.com/?s1ksmudp69aho5m
- Copy to system/app and set permission to RW-R-R

A few apps will disappear from the app drawer (such as Gallery) after the installation just give your phone a reboot and hola you have a brand new phone ;)

The RAZR M launcher has one issue when u want to use the full height of the screen (for apps or widgets).
U can't use the most upper row.

Is there a fix for this?

In order for me to get the widget to work I had to NOT install the homescreen.apk into the system folder. I renamed the original in the system folder homescreen.bak, then just install the homescreen as a regular app and rebooted. This worked for me. Oh, also just install the circles widget as a regular app. Hope this helps.

Also, I was going through the full system dump and noticed the NFC apk's. Anyone know if this will work on the razr? I think the battery has to have something built into it for it to work. I know on my nexus you have to use certain batteries or you loose NFC.

Just some Screens.
For me everything works flawless just by putting the Circle, message, camera, gallery & weather apk into the System Apps Folder (set permissions) and install the Homescreen like an usual App.

Flash the Eclipse with the GSM Patch.
For pure GSM Roms i recommend the FTS or Epsilon V5. FTS you'll find in Dev Section. For Epsilon i'll post you an link.

    2. change the .apk extension to .zip
    3. extract using winrar or winzip
    4. locate the files 'libnative_renderer.so' & 'libtexture_mem.so' inside the folder 'armeabi' under lib folder
    5. copy both files to system\lib folder and overwrite any existing files and set permissions rw r r
    6. REBOOT
    7. Install 3d circles and weather in any order
    8 Enjoy!:angel:

    Working flawlessly on my Atrix 2

    For those who have the above mentioned disaster, try the steps above

    ---------- Post added at 09:21 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:13 AM ----------

    Hey,

    Everything seems to be working great, thanks for this. Circle widgets always shows an error regarding 3rd party apps, I've tried installing homescreen, circled and weather a few different times with no dice. Let me know if there is anything else simple I can try to fix this.

    1. make a copy of homescreen.apk
    2. change the .apk extension to .zip
    3. extract using winrar or winzip
    4. locate the files 'libnative_renderer.so' & 'libtexture_mem.so' inside the folder 'armeabi' under lib folder
    5. copy both files to system\lib folder and overwrite any existing files and set permissions rw r r
    6. REBOOT
    7. Install 3d circles and weather in any order
    8 Enjoy!

    Working flawlessly on my Atrix 2

    The problem people has with the widget is that the logcat wasn't checked... in order to get it working correctly you need to pull the libs inside homescreen.apk(don't delete them!) and push them to lib folder with rw-r--r-- permissions. Then push the circle apk and finally the weather apk. You don't need to reinstall it from system.
