This is a bootstrap recovery for the Atrix 2. It is based off of Koush's bootstrap for the Droid Bionic and modified for the Atrix 2. I do not own an Atrix 2 but everything should work!


Flash at your own risk! Enjoy!

Steps to use bootstrap:
1. Install the Atrix2Bootstrap.apk
2. Select "Bootstrap Recovery"
3. Superuser will prompt for permissions
4. Select "Reboot Recovery"


When the phone reboots it will boot up into Clockworkmod Recovery.

ok, i backed up

however, there's no way to boot into cwm recovery.

holding up/down and power gets you to the moto fastboot, where you can select recovery, you'll be greeted by a triangle and android, pressing up/down again gets you to the stock recovery. but cannot get into the cwm recovery.

That is because it is a bootstrap recovery. You cannot flash over the stock recovery with a locked bootloader. The only way to get into clockworkmod recovery is through the bootstrap.

do not flash this, just put this in /system/media

I need to take out the stock animation and save it first, then replace with your zip correct? Do you have a preview

You can also disable the animation entirely via build.prop if you want.

Ok gotcha. Was trying to flash a couple of bootanimations I had saved from my OG ATRIX. Thought I could flash them like I used to on it.

If recovery gives us the ability to flash things to our phone, and the original recovery method didn't work on this phone, how can we flash this unofficial recovery to it? I'm so confused right now.
