    RAZR MAXX and FROYO

    Anyone know if I can safely install Froyo on my RAZR MAXX? They've removed so many features with the ICS OS that it's driving me nuts!

    Never isn't any way to go back in OS's, just forward. So you have to live with it like the rest of us unfortunately.

    You cannot. The kernel completely changed and so unless Motorola unlocks the bootloader it won't be possible to do what you want to do.

    What features were you referring to?
    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]

    Yes they did, so I guess he was not liking GB either.

    Thanks for your response. It's really only two features that are causing me grief. The first, the status bar is now so small, it assumes my eyesight is 20/10! I can't see a damn thing. And second, the keyboard doesn't incorporate a microphone any longer, so I'm forced to typing notes rather than talking them. Mystifying.

    Yes, yes! Sorry for not being clear. Up until two days ago I was using a Droid X that still had Froyo. I did upgrade the OS to GB a year ago and immediately rolled it back because too much had changed and I couldn't see any real improvement. I finally had to upgrade my phone recently, and after 2 1/2 years I guess I became attached to certain features in Froyo, e.g, ISO adjustment for the camera; a microphone on the keyboard; a status bar that's actually readable. From the sounds of it, I'll have to live with ICS and maybe find some 3rd party apps to take up the slack.

    Thanks. GT

    -This is the default keyboard's microphone key. Most 3rd party keyboards would also have this key.

    -The status bar is smaller I'm not sure if there are any UI modification apps that can fix this.

    -However, under Settings>Display>Font size you can change the size of the fonts for the rest of the phone. Which you may find helpful.

    I completely feel your pain on the status bar. I've never been on FROYO so I don't know what you're comparing it too, but yes since I got the MAXX, the task bar is too damn small for me. I made a thread about it at some point in time but responses got me nowhere except for using widgets to tell me the time, in which case, the font is much bigger but takes up space on your screen, RAM and sucks more of your battery.

    Between the font size of the time on the status bar and the fact that they stripped away the big buttons in favor of the skinny bars are the two most ridiculous things I noticed in ICS. JB has the same problems.

    I just did a quick search on the Play Store about Status Bar Font Sizes and even tried Accessibility. No dice. I'm very disappointed in Google for this to ICS, and now JB. If I knew of a working custom ROM, I'd switch to it but I hear they all have their issues. I'm not sure if a custom ROM would do the trick, though.

    Ahh..makes sense now.. Lol. Hopefully it will work out for you in the end. New devices..new OS....Technology is constantly changing..Where is that Easy Button when you really need it..or actually where is that Revert Back To button..lol.
