    Hola everyone!

    Well after fooling around with my D3 for a little, I decided to do some button mashing to figure out how to access the recovery menu for the D3 and was successful!

    To get there, power off the device, hold down the "x" button on the keyboard and power button at the same time at until the "!" and android is displayed.

    To access recovery, press the volume up rocker and volume down rocker at the same time and voila! You now have access to the recovery!

    Hope this helps the community somehow! Now lets get to the unlocking and ROM-ing!!!:)

    Something is up with your apps, phone or you have crappy cell service. My D3 is getting pretty great battery life although I do have the extended battery.

    bootloader access is the same as well, power off, slide out keyboard push the up arrow button while powering on and it will boot into the bootloader as well.

    Well for a select few, this might have been news they were unaware of, I was simply adding my two cents...

    FYI, Recovery was originally accessed on the D1 with rocker volume up and the camera button... This is physically impossible on the D3 (which I'm sure your aware of). So for myself and maybe a few others switching from a D1, this might be a little tid-bit worthy of news. Maybe not front page, but worth something. :)

    Buy "Tasker" app, that way you can switch on and off 3G, which for me is the big battery killer

    Would that essentially be the same thing as using the Airplane Mode toggle? Or does it still allow Syncing to occur?

    Airplane mode would turn off your 2G as well, stopping texts/calls.
    Turning off 3G is just data.

    I have no major issues with battery life, I don't know what everyone is running, so far mine is just stock but I know Pulse does take some battery life.

    That's wild. On 3G in my office, which has 1-2 bars of service most of the time (my OG Droid had some dropped calls, Droid 3 seems a bit better), loses about 20-25% battery in the 11 hours I'm there (6am-7pm Mon-Thu). I got my Droid 3 on 7/8 after ordering it via their phone sales line 7/7 (next day delivery) so got to test it all last week. Without ever charging, I get between 50-53 hours standby if I only rarely turn the screen on to dismiss alerts. I have several user-installed persistent apps running too, such as Tasker, LookOut, Circle Battery, Beautiful Widgets, and a few others. Your mileage may vary, but honestly the battery life on the Droid 3 is excellent.
