    I know, my last updated to this ROM was back in April. Its been a LONG time (at least for me) since then, and I have been promising an update. Here it is in verison 4.8. Its not HUGE, but it gets you up to the latest official base, safely, and with the Steel Droid touch. There is more that will go into this, but to be honest, the Droid 3 is not my number one device right now. Its actually the Galaxy Nexus, and the new AOSP JellyBean source. Dont worry, I want to update my Droid 3 build with some new theming, and try to smooth it out a little more. I have not gotten a SINGLE issue reported to me from any of my testers for the v4.8 release! Now THATS rock solid! Thats STEEL DROID!



    * KNOWN BUGS *
    * Let me know what you find in v5.0 *



    NEW DEFAULT WALLPAPER



    "FEATURES" (TRICKS)

    ================================================== =======
    Open up the Browser, and type in "about:debug" (minus the quotes of course)
    This will enable debug settings and the Java Console.
    ================================================== =======



    Changelog:

    5.0
    * Updated Nemus Launcher to 1.6.5.3
    * Updated Flash Player to 11.1.115.27
    * Updated Google Music to 4.4.811H.526848
    * Updated Google Play Store to 3.10.10 Modded
    * Updated Superuser to 3.1.3 with 3.1.1 binary
    * Updated QuickSearchBox
    * Updated VoiceSearch
    * Removed duplicate notification sound settings in build.prop
    * Removed duplicate notification sound file
    * Added my custom ringtones, and changed other sound settings
    * Added ALL the ringtones, notifications, and alarms from my GNex releases
    * Added some experimental build.prop mods
    * Themed a lot of the ROM to match Jellybean 4.2.x (still more to go)


    Flashing instructions:
    OK, this is where everybody is going to get confused. This does NOT work the same as the OG Droid did. So, follow my directions exactly, and you should have no problems getting what you need to work! These instructions will take you from bone stock, to my custom ROM, with the LEAST amount of errors.

    NOTE 1: If you are on version v4.x, and have not gone hog-wild with messing with the system, then feel free to flash v5.0 directly on top of v4.x.
    NOTE 2: When flashing a ROM, please make SURE your battery is OVER 75%. Lower battery levels have been reported to cause bad flashes.
    NOTE 3: If you are already on the OTA 5.6.890, be sure to do a full wipe before flashing v4.x or 5.0
    NOTE 4: If you are on another ROM, be sure to do a full wipe before flashing v4.x or 5.0

    FLASH 5.6.890 SBF (for a TOTALLY clean install for those with paranoia)
    1: Download the 5.6.890 SBF file HERE
    2: Download RSDLite 5.5 HERE
    3: Extract the contents of the SBF file to a folder on your computer
    4: Install RSDLite
    5: Boot the Droid 3 into bootloader by holding both Vol+ & Vol- at the same time when powering the phone on
    6: Select "AP Fastboot" and press Vol+ to select it
    7: Select the XML from the extracted SBF file in RSDLite
    8: Connect the phone, and when it says "Connected", hit "Start"
    9: Wait for the phone to finish flashing, and booting (it will reboot a couple times, leave it alone, its supposed to!)

    ROOT STOCK ROM
    10: Install and run Petes Motorola Root Tools. Download it HERE
    11: Follow the instructions in the app to root your phone

    INSTALL SAFESTRAP RECOVERY
    12: Once rooted, install Hashcodes v3.05 SafeStrap Recovery from HERE
    13: Reboot your phone, and when prompted, hit MENU to enter SafeStrap Recovery.

    BACKUP AND INSTALL NEW ROM
    14: MAKE SURE TO MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE DOING ANYTHING! (just a precaution)
    15: Go to "install zip from sdcard", then "choose zip from internal sdcard", then select my ROM's zip file
    16: After it installs, back out and reboot the phone
    17: YOU HAVE DONE IT! CONGRATS ON YOU NEW STEEL DROID INSTALL!

    I would suggest using the v3.05 release of Hashcodes Safestrap Recovery. It is now based on TWRP 2.x. MUCH easier to use

    Give the ROM time to boot. The first boot took me almost 5 minutes! If your phone doesn't boot in 15 minutes, pull the battery and try again. If it still doesn't boot, you need to go back and start over with my instructions at the beginning!

    ALSO: Please be sure to check out the free tethering hack! I use it regularly, and it DOES work. Quite well I might add. Details HERE

    Well, I have a packaged ROM ready to go, problem is, that its in update.zip format. But thats not too bad I guess, since the fix for flashing ROMs from the recently released D3 bootstraped recovery is within a week away! Its not built from source, but currently based on 5.5.959. Not going to be a massive amount of changes, but at least its a custom ROM, right?!
    ! NEW DEVICE ! (as of 01-05-2014)
