    I was wondering about this topic too. I loved Blurry maxx on ICS, but my Blurry 2.5 on the JB seems to have some crash issues when i trying to open anything. It lags, and if i tap it again, it closes saying it stopped working. It may be something i did on my phone during the install, so i'm going to delete the rom, and reinstall it. But I was curious too if the Cyangen or the Icarus HD were very good? Any input as to which of those are better overall. What are the benefits and drawbacks that anyone has noticed with those?

    I've been running CyanogenMod 10.1 since it went "Stable" and I'm LOVING this thing. It is a KEXEC build that must be installed into SafeStrap ROM-Slot-1, but once you get it running, it's MAGIC. For one thing, you discover you're running Android 4.2.2, and there is NO Verizon or Motorola bloat at ALL. In fact, a lot of the apps I had installed I discovered I didn't need anymore. The Trebuchet launcher easily replaces the ADW_Launcher I was using. I no long need to use Easy Tether, as I can tether straight from the phone without having to dance around Verizon's "block" from all of the other ROMs that've come out based on the MotoBlur build. Plus, CM will Auto-Update just like the stock ROM, so there's seldom any need to boot back to stock (unless there is a critical radio update or something along those lines). Try it! Here's the link: Information: Motorola Droid Bionic ("targa") - CyanogenMod

    I'm surprised they haven't created a subforum here yet for CyanogenMod!

    Thanks for the info on CM buellboy9! Can you comment on the differences between Liquid and CM?

    Also, can anyone suggest a ROM that will run without breaking stuff like Bluetooth music streaming, the camera, etc? In particular, I need those two features to work without much of a hitch.

    Since I've never used Liquid, I can't really answer your question. The only other ROM I've used on the Bionic is Eclipse.

    I routinely stream music from the phone to a bluetooth headset in my helmet when I'm riding and it still works perfectly. In fact, with CM's included "Apollo Music Player" and the built in DSP capabilities, my music never sounded better.

    The only issue with CM 10.1 on the Bionic right now is that the flash doesn't work, but since I only do outdoor photography with it anyway that isn't an issue. The pictures I've taken with the camera came out just fine.

    Hope that helps.

    Newer models of carbon ROM and liquid have flash working. If you want to run a 4.2 ROM, then run carbon. It is the most stable one I've been on

    Is there anything in Carbon that's notably broken? I don't need HDMI or DLNA. In particular, I want to be sure that the following work at LEAST as well as on stock:


    • Both cameras (both picture and video)
    • Wifi (connection and tethering)
    • Radios (4G, 3G and voice)
    • Bluetooth (both music and calling)
    • GPS
    • Very minimal force closing, if any

    If any of this stuff (or anything else notable) is broken or removed, are there any decent stock-base ROMs for the Bionic?
