Hello to all, this is my first post. Yes, I am a newb but have has sat in the back of the classroom observing this forum and various other android forums. I am a big advocate of android, especially the Motorola Droids. I first rooted my droid 1 & 2, then skipped to droid 4 + root for over a year now and used Vodoo OTA Root keeper to prevent the updates, as I was fine with what I had.....until now.
So lets start with that I have a Droid 4 running gingerbread 2.3.6/ System Ver 6.13.219
-Rooted through the droid 4 utility v.03
-Super User & Binary is installed/ updated.
-clockworkmod installed, but can not get cwm recovery so I can make a back up. Says"There is no current recovery for droid 4", which I highly doubt is correct.
-Voodo OTA root keeper was recently removed in the attempt to update to ICS/Jellybean.
I read the instructions again and again, followed steps to manually install one of the leaked versions of ICS; leading to a fail, just rebooted up and remained as gingerbread.
I then decided I didn't want all the issues the droid 4 is having with ICS & Jellybean. I would just like to at be able to flash between gingerbread and a ROM version of ICS or JB for the purpose of using ARliberator app with AppRadio stereo system (due to ARliberator not being compatible with gingerbread).
Issues I'm having:
-I can not find cwm recovery to work for my droid 4.
-I can not get the latest version of safestrap to install from hash code's site, "problem parsing this package" is what I'm getting after attempting to install.
-can not find a version of the droid 4 utility (ver 1.0) for gingerbread, to try having safestrap installed through the utility. The droid 4 utility version I have, safestrap was removed. From my search and findings all links point to the ICS and JB utilitiy tools and the version I'm looking for has been removed.
Basically I am at a stand still until I can get cwm recovery to work and safestrap installed.
Can anyone please point this newb in the right direction or tell me if I am doing anything incorrect? I've been scratching my brains out for the past 3 days now. Thank you in advanced.
