gps works on sd 5.6, but newer versions of maps have issues.
ROM INSTALLATION QUESTIONS:
(1) Is this a KEXEC or NON-KEXEC ROM?
(2) Using SafeStrap v3.05, which ROM Slot is recommended for installation?
Thanks, Bruce Senator
so i've had this phone for 4weeks now, it is running on Page Plus cellular paying $28.79 so i can't complain about it much, i've learned allot about this phone in a short amount of time here is some of what i do n dont know-
1)i don't know for sure if this is a kexec rom
2) How i have Safestrap recovery setup is Steel droid is in slot 1, Minimoto rom is in slot 2. This would be how id highly recommend anyone using the device set it up.
There both great roms and that said minimoto being a gb based rom it is considerably more stable and neither rom has motoblur(i hate motoblur so much)
3)and if your anything like me you'll want a fail safe plan b of sorts just in case u brick ur phone and can only boot into fastboot.
this thing has saved me from the fire so many times so bookmark this address
4)say you found the rom u like but no downlink works
try these sites
5)i would also download any roms/files/anything for this phone
that you might want down the road n re upload to google drive or something for safe keeping cause alot of these threads are all but closed and when they close its gone
I just followed all the steps in the first post and everything was successful, however after a reboot I am still running stock 2.3.4. Not quite sure why the flash doesn't appear to have worked, even though safestrap said it did complete successfully.
Anyone else get this behavior and find a workaround/fix?
you created a rom slot?
installed zip on rom slot and not stock slot?
verified md5 checksum for rom after downloading?
when it's booting does safestrap bootmenu say
safetrap:enabled or disabled
@themib thanks for responding, really appreciate it.
To answer your last post, when the device boots SafeStrap does come up and it says "Safe System: Disabled"
I think that was the clue I needed to get the ROM installed properly. I wasn't too familiar with SafeStrap but after you asked that question I did a little research into what all that means and I think I got it working now; at least Steel Droid looks like it is trying to boot. Not sure if it's stuck, I guess booting back into SafeStrap and clearing cache might be necessary. I'll post again if I can get it to boot or not.
see How to install and use safe strap 3.05 on the droid 3
should be similar to How to install Minimoto rom on the Droid 3
Awesome, thanks for the links. This guide says to use Rick's tweaked 1.08e version of SafeStrap, and I have read through all 36 pages of posts to see if that was superseded. I'm going to try the whole process over using safestrap 3.05, because it looks like SteelDroid is not going to boot for me.
yes just use the 3.05
Don't get your hopes up, but I MIGHT try to work on an updated version for the D3. My life is jam packed right now, but I'll see what I can do.
