    Droid 3 Recovery

    Found that like the OG droid you can boot to system recovery by powering off the phone and pressing x and the power at the same time.

    It will bring you to the all to familiar triangle and "!" screen. From there swype your finger down over the volume rocker to unlock the menu.

    Not sure if this is already known, or how hard it would of been to figure it out. But here it is!

    Does anyone have any connections to Team Black Hat, I know in the past they seemed to get access to the SBF files and that would likely be a big start.

    I may eat my words eventually, but I actually like the new blur...I think it might be moving in the right direction. Several of the games that came pre-loaded it's letting me uninstall, which a appreciate.

    It is AMAZING! By far the best physical keyboard out to date.

    +1 to that. I actaully liked some blur features on my DX, and they seem to have kept those and made them even better. Usually the first thing i do is replace the launcher but I havent even thought about it yet. VERY fast and responsive, smooth scrolling, videos and web pages load faster, FLASH runs like its intended to without lag/fps drops.

    The screen is pretty amazing also. My d1 screen was better than my DX (which i thought was terrible) and this "pentile" screen blows both away, even better than the D/Inc's AMOLED screen. Very little pixelation present, images are sharp and text is very easy to read. And in sunlight, WOW, I have never had a screen be so readable and detailed while under direct sunlight.

    The front facing camera was actually a lot better than I expected and the 8mp rear camera takes better photos than my 12mp dedicated camera. The 1080p HD video capture is also a lot more impressive than I though it would be. Frame rates are pretty good for a PHONE and the image quality is well, 1080p!

    Ram is NOT an issue, the android task manager does its job. usually around 50-80 mb free ram. And as far as android is concerned, the less free ram the better.

    16gb internal high speed storage is also nice (2gb for apps, but you think you even really need that much? That's like 500+ apps!) I dont use the 16gb card I put in the D3, but the SD card IS hot swap-able, so no more taking the battery out to get to the SD card!



    OVERALL: A very well built and well thought out device with superb hardware and packed with features, very fast, blur is actually "nice".

    I didnt mention the "bloat-ware" that VZW has put on the phone. Yes, you can uninstall some of it just not the vcast apps. Which when running only use 1-2mb of ram. So thats a whole whopping 10-15mb used for only a minute or 2. ( YOU CANT EVEN TELL THE SERVICES ARE RUNNING.....) Something I never got about people complaining about the bloat, it actually doesnt take any cpu if it wasnt started by you, just 1 out 512mb of ram per app.. And storage shouldnt be an issue either, the droid 1 was the only phone I had to move apps to sd (100+apps on 256mb storage), otherwise its pointless and makes your phone slower.


    Edit: I have 12 days to return the D3, the factors for me to keep this is if nothing better comes out in that time. Root would also make me lean a little more towards keeping this device. ATM I'm still wanting the Galaxy S2 (which may never come due to competition) or the Bionic if it can back its followers.

    You sure about this? I have to on mine. I have to snap off the back cover which is much harder on the Droid 3 than other phones (such as my DX2 or OG Droid) and then to slide out the microSD card, the top edge of the battery is in the way, so you have to remove it to get that card. Am I missing something?
