Wednesday 30th of March 2011 / droid-life.com
Many of you noticed that that CRT-esque screen-off animation from the Nexus S and stock Gingerbread (Android 2.3) was missing from the leaked builds on the DROID X and 2 and wondered how to get it.  It’s now available below, although you’ll need to run a few adb commands to get it.Instructions:*Note* – This will likely not work on anything but Gingerbread.  I would not try to flash this on a 2.2 ROM.*Note 2* – I have not tested this on a DROID2, just assumed it would work.  Be careful D2 owners.UPDATE:  There is now a simple .zip file that can be flashed in Clockwork.  [Download]1.  CREATE A BACKUP FIRST.2.  Download this file to your computer:  framework-res_CRT_ENABLE.apk3.  Rename it to framework-res.apk and place in your SDK/Tools folder.4.  Connect your phone and run the following commands in adb:adb remountadb push framework-res.apk /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apkadb shellsustoprm /system/framework/framework-res.apkcp /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apk /system/framework/rm /data/local/tmp/framework-res.apkreboot5.  Your phone will reboot and

Droid X and original Droid updates rolling out Now?


Wednesday 08th of December 2010 / androidspin.com
We’re getting word that updates for both the Droid X and the original Droid are available right now.  The updates will bring each device up to Android 2.2.1 which is the latest Android build, that is until Android 2.3 is pushed out.We are hearing that the update for the Droid X was just meant for a small number of test group memebers, and Motorola has pulled the update. We could only assume that within the next few days they will push it to all users.The original Droid on the other hand is definitely available, but rolling out in stages to users.  There is no way to force the update and you basically have to sit tight until it hits your device.  We’ll be looking for a manual download link of course so that you can get on FRG83D long before you were supposed to.  (Info on the Droid update.)Let us know, are you receiving updates?Source: DroidLife

Did 3G Mobile Hotspot for DROID X and 2 Running Gingerbread Just Go Live for Free? – Droid Life


Monday 28th of March 2011 / droid-life.com
Earlier today we were poking fun at the official 3G mobile hotspot apps for the DROID X and 2 on Gingerbread because they erroneously told us to go sign-up at att.com/mywireless in order to use the service, but we should have dug deeper.  It’s now looking like the feature is free on both devices as long as you are on Gingerbread.  As far as I can tell, this hasn’t been the case up until now, so maybe with this version of Android 2.3 not being official, it’s possible that it had not been turned off yet?  As you can see in the screenshots above, I’ve successfully tethered my DX to my XOOM over 3G.If you do decide to use this, understand that we have no idea how this could affect your bill.  What we do know is that tethering really gobbles up data, so you might want to be careful.Anyone else?  Am I just out of the loop and this service has been free for a while?  Maybe they decided to make it free along with the Thunderbolt until May?And we’re talking the official 3G mobile hotspot app, not a 3rd party app like Barnacle.Cheers Robert!

Droid X and Ford Motor Company's SYNC system


Monday 22nd of August 2011 / droidforums.net
I've purchased a Ford F-150 which has the SYNC system in the vehicle. Following Ford's instructions to "Pair, Connect etc." do not seem to work with my Droid X phone.It seems that SYNC recognizes my Droid X but will not connect to it. That being the case, the SYNC system is of little value to me. Has anyone else had this problem? And if so, what (was / is) the resolution to it?Thanks in advance for your help.

How do I pair my Droid x and Ford Sync


Tuesday 12th of October 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have an 09 Fusion and I am having difficulty getting it to pair with my Droid X. I have tried the "1234" and "0000" codes as well as the 6 digit one that my Sync provides and every time it fails. I have tried it like 30 times and every combination that I could think of, but no luck. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks Mark

Droid X and Mac


Monday 02nd of August 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
I've taken a good look at the Droid X and would like it to be my next smartphone, however, I have a great many concerns. So I'm hoping all you Android experts would be willing to help me out some. As the title implies I have a Mac and what I need is a smartphone that can sync my Address Book, Calendar, To Dos, e-mails, photos, videos etc. The bottom line...if I can't find a way to sync all of these things there's no point in getting a Droid X. I had fairly negative experiences with Mark/Space for Blackberry so I'm not so enthused about going that route. I use MobileMe and am not entirely thrilled about having to switch my whole life over to Google products. Not that Google is a bad thing...but I've noticed a real dearth of offline capability since they stopped supporting Google Gears. I've tried experimenting with syncing my Mac to Google with some limited success but I really prefer one stop shopping so I'm not certain where to go from here. I'm hoping that some of you good folks are also Mac users and that you've made the switch to Droid X. If so, what solutions have you uncovered

Moto X and Ford F-150 SYNC - Text Messages


Sunday 22nd of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello all, I have been thinking of picking up a Moto X for AT&T and have a question that hopefully a fellow Ford owner can help me with. I have a 2013 Ford F-150 pickup with the My Ford Touch SYNC system. This SYNC system has a Messaging feature that will interact with the phone reading and displaying text messages. (notifications) My current Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition does not support this feature, and being that I use text messaging for work, I would love to use this feature. I see that previous Motorola phones have supported the messaging, does the Moto X also support this as well? For anyone that can help, does the Moto X work well with the Ford SYNC system? Thanks!!
