You need root
Right, you have to be already rooted in order to run the Safestrap app to install the bootstrap and recovery.
You can root using Dan Rosenberg's Motofail method: Security Research by Dan Rosenberg
Make sure that you have the Maverick zip file (not unzipped) on an SD card or on internal storage
So, use Motofail to root the phone.
Run the Safestrap app to install the Recovery
Restart the phone - it should prompt you to press Menu to start Recovery
After Recovery starts, do a backup of the phone before you do anything else
Use the safe menu to enable the safe system
Install a zip file from the SD card, and choose the Maverick ROM
Wipe data/factory reset
WOW thanks so much. Worked like a top as they say.
I knew that I needed root, but couldent get the one click root tool to work. it would say that it completed but would never transfer the files over to the device (superuser.apk, etc...) Thanks for the new exploit.:hail::hail:
In your opinion is this one of the best roms (to date) for the droid 3?
I switch between Steel Droid ICS and Mav v4.5, both are solid Roms. Mav gets better battery life and everything works (SD ICS has the known D3 issues atm).
It really comes down to personal preference and what you need.

First I would like to say I googled this and searched this thread for my problem before posting this
K so here's my problem, hopefully someone can help....
K so I have hashcodes safestrap installed 2.10 I believe, and Mavrom 4.5.
So I flash Mavrom 4.5 using safestrap (factory reset/wipedata, flash Mavrom 4.5, then factory/wipe data)
now the problem comes after I do all this, if I let my battery drain all the way or do a reboot without shutting the phone off then physcially turning it back on the phone will reboot back into stock mode but keep all my settings as tho it was still in Mavrom 4.5 but all traces of Mavrom will be gone. I don't know if im not factory resetting enough times or what im doing wrong...oh also it happens if im oc to 1.1 or 1.2ghz or even not oc'd.
If anyone has any insight into this I would greatly appreciate you help . In the meantime titanium backup will continue to be my best friend. Thank you for reading
katobugs, check your safstrap version again. Make sure that you have 2.10 not 2.01. What you are experiencing sounds like the issue .01 was having (are you connected to power when you do this?)
If you are on 2.10, lemme know and we'll see what we can figure out.
Sir Buckmarble! (Bow... Bow... Kneel...) Mavrom has been my favorite for some time and it's always the primary rom on my D3. When using the OC feature though in 4.5, I too experienced random reboots, or reboots at nasty times when a phone call started to come in. But I've fixed that, at least for me - I don't know if others looked at this or if a possible resolution has been posted here yet, but here goes...
Looking at the .d scripts, I see that you've included the GPU OC too? I learned something about my own D3 device while working with my own rom build (newbie yet) with overclocking that helped me out with MavROM 4.5.
I can OC this device stable to 1.2 (and probably can push 1.3) - as long as I don't OC the GPU also. Once I start OC'ing the GPU at the same time, I start encountering those random reboots or shutdowns - as well as some heat. I can OC the GPU fine if I trade off to a lower CPU OC. I've edited the .d script to comment out the GPU OC in MavROM, leaving the 1.2 CPU OC and I run a lot more stable now without reboots or odd slowdowns (and cooler even). The CPU OC definately gives me greater performance, the GPU - doesn't actually do much for me (but that's me).
In your next toolbox version, can you add a couple scripts for the OC options with / or without / GPU OC?
Excellent idea. Will definitely keep that in mind!
i just double checked it was 2.01 (was on my phone while posting before) i will get 2.10 and see if that fixes it thank you for the respond. also no im not connected to power when i do this
just go 2.10 finally and that seemed to fix my problem thank you very much!
you're welcome. glad to hear it worked :biggrin:
a good idea and good things overclock and undervolt

I cant seem to sign into my google account after flashing this. Gives me wrong username and pass when I know its right. This is my first time flashing a rom btw. Soo not sure if I did anything wrong.
Update: I fixed it. Had to turn the 2-step verification off on my google acnt. Cant wait to have fun with this. My D3 has been slow as hell so I decided it was time flash a good rom. I was really shocked and impressed how fast boot times are and overall speed of the phone. thx for this ROM. Its lookin great so far. Just too bad the themes dont work.
Themes work, you just have to flash them manually
