    is this model the verizon droid 4 ?

    not sure, whether there is another gsm only model or not ....

    been reading some threads about roms in this section but i like using cyanogen roms.

    is there a fully functional cm rom for the d4 yet ?

    if not, how does the leaked ics stock rom perform on the phone ?

    thanks for the replies ....

    i got the d4 but havent recieved it yet, wasnt sure.

    i have a rooted dx running cm7.1.

    i want to do the same with the d4 but need to figure out whether safestrap is the right app to use for entering recovery and doing backups/installing roms.

    what id likely do is root the phone, install safestrap, boot into recovery to backup the stock rooted rom, then find a rom i like.

    the problem is finding out which rom is best. i dont want to do the trial and error thing. because i once tried cm9 on my dx, then when i reverted to 605 (i shouldnt have done that) my wifi mac addressing broke, so i couldnt use wifi at home because i use mac filtering.

    i want a rom thats straight ICS no blur, no garbage, but i want full functionality and nothing broken.

    plus i need to be able to root it. not sure if all of what i want is possible with the d4, i think its possible with the galaxy nexus, but i dont want a curved/rounded phone

    Hmmmmmm, I think that you might have to wait to get a vanilla ics that's fully functioning with the correct kernel.

    I could be wrong... I'm looking, you might check out the d4 forum more, that's what I'm doing.

    I do know that the d4 is going global.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help. But give the forum a looking over. :)

    it should be going global because Verizon announced it is.
    i would wait for the stock ICS to make an official appearance, not sure if it's going to have the same bland blur interface that i can't stand.

    Hopefully one of the d4 guys will jump in here and be able to help you further. Apparently the d4 is another toy I need to grab :)

    The moto build of ics looks pretty good. It has a few tweaks to it, like 4 way unlock, and the icons are changed, but from what I've seen, I'm licking my chops... there is a thread about moto showing what ics will look like with the how to videos.

    I like it personally, but I'm a moto user all the way. :)

    Motorola Teases Ice Cream Sandwich on Droid RAZR | News & Opinion | PCMag.comoesn't look bad .... if it's close enough to vanilla android, i'd take it over an asop ics rom just for the motorola widgets/extras. the razr & d4 both have the same builds/software, so it's safe to assume the d4 will get a mirror of this release for the razr .... right ?

    I would certainly think so. The only differences I could see might be if they added anything for the physical keyboard....

    Everything that article talks about is fully functional on the current .206 leak. I've been running it for a couple days now and absolutely love it!

    I didn't know you could record video and snap a pic at the same time, that's a really cool feature. I really like 206, it's been running well all day.

    I hope that ics is as well put together as it appears to be :). I've held off to stay on the path... :)
