Some notes for Droid 4 owners:
According to this thread on XDA the Arctic Rom is flashable on the Droid 4 as well.
Some things to note:
  • The keyboard's backlight will not light up. (NOT fixed in 2.3.3)
Flash as your own risk. I am doing my best to get this Rom to work better on 2.3.6 Gingerbread, and I am going to start with bluetooth.
Shady_lanem has given up Razr work and has granted me permission to his Arctic Rom.

If you are going to flash this before the fastboot files are out, do so carefully and in safestrap. (Even then I don't recommend safestrap until we get a Droid 4 version from hashcode).

For rooting use the Droid 4 Utility threads for Mac/Linux and Windows. (by skylarmb)

Nice! Hopefully it isn't hard to fix the keyboard backlight, cause that's a must for me...

Actually need a tester for just that. I found some D4 files I think are responsible for keyboard backlight but I have no way of testing it yet on D4.
I am also having my good buddy mopar57 redo the theme of Arctic.


EDIT: Release 2.3.3.... which MAY fixed the backlight issue. tell me how it goes...

EDIT 2: Release 2.3.3 did NOT fix it.

Still don't have fastboot files, so this D4 is still bricked.

Dev may continue if I had a D4 lol.
