    ================================================== =======


    Changelog (6-8-2012):
    LET THIS VERSION SIT FOR A WHILE SO THE OVERCLOCK HAS TIME TO SINK IN!
    5.6
    * Overclocked to 1.2GHz (credit to sparkyman)
    * Working init.d now (fully)

    Flashing instructions:

    FLASH 5.6.890 SBF (for a TOTALLY clean install for those with paranoia) ONLY IF NOT COMING FROM 906 or later OTA, or you could BRICK!
    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 onto your Windows computer
    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 one of the following recoveries:
    OFFICIAL BY HASHCODE: HERE
    UNOFFICIAL BY RICK#2: 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 1.08e release of Rick#2's tweaked Safestrap. It has a lot of safeguards built in that could really save you a bunch of time in flashing and/or testing, and I personally like his menu layout and design. But of course, you still have all the functionality of Hashcodes Safestrap still in place. I am aware that 1.08f is available from Rick#2, but it breaks SDCard mounting, so just stick to 1.08e.


    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, wipe cache 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

    Credits:
    Here are my thanks for this build, in no particular order:

    AOKP (for their awesome ICS source!)
    Rick#2 (tweaked 1.08f Safestrap)
    Google! (Kickass Android OS!)
    Motorola! (kickass phone!)
    JRummy (init.d support)
    cvalenti15 (testing)
    and a few more...

    I know cush2push is working on some ICS call audio stuff. I know its not for the D1 though, but it might lead to a fix sometime down the road. Those types of changes are not my thing. lol

    Just installed this ROM last night and it's been perfect so far, really love the new layout and feel of ICS, it makes the phone feel complete. Props to the developer, this is my favorite rom by far, I can't wait to see what's in the next update!
