DROIDX2 Bootstrap Released, Clockwork Recovery is Go

Before we get into this, we need to make it clear that this DROIDX2 bootstrap app was found in a random Chinese forum, so we definitely aren’t recommending that you jump all over this.  With that said, we’ve been following the thread for this topic over at XDA throughout the last day to see if anyone has actually had the guts to use it, and apparently they have – and it works.

The file was originally built for the Atrix 4G, but can work on the DX2 with no problems.  Users are claiming to have backed up and restored their stock ROMs, plus some have even flashed a ROM that was discovered along with the bootstrap app.  We have video from a friend below, but again, let’s all be careful with this one.   

Download:  MOTODX2_Bootstrap_signed.apk

    I must show appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this particular crisis. Right after looking through the world-wide-web and getting recommendations which are not helpful, I was thinking my life was well over. Living without the strategies to the problems you have fixed as a result of your entire post is a serious case, as well as the kind that could have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn’t discovered your site. Your good capability and kindness in maneuvering all the details was helpful. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a subject like this. I can now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for your expert and result oriented help. I won’t be reluctant to endorse the blog to any individual who would need care about this matter.

    Welcome to my blog news-syracuse-ny-ambien.html.

    This does work and i have successfully backed up and restored my stock debloated rom. 

  • Rp76

    So I’m guessing this has to be installed by computer?? I tried to download by phone since its an apk and it says not supported…

    … good to know, the Chinese are also jumping on the boatloader-wagon … have always missed japanese/chinese brains on xda … hello world

  • Drnick124

    I had to upgrade to a smart phone from the a dumb phone before the tiering so the x2 was the best option for me. Lets just hope some good things come for it before it gets forgotten for the newer stuff.

    That is freaking awesome. Let’s get some of this for my Droid 3 now.

    For those of us that were given one of these devices by insurance, this makes me happy. DX was an amazing phone. This phone is now one step closer.

    • Rp76

      Yea thankfully the DroidX that they sent me had pixels out in it at the right time ;-) now I’m backed up & ready for some cm7…I hope

      *sigh*

    I am in the minority to be sure. I have a DX2 but also have two upgrades to go…so this is easy for me to say, but the DX2 is top notch. I have seen both the samsung and HTC displays next to the DX2, and they are better. However, the DX2 display is not as bad as folks think. There are no little dots on it. The picture and video quality is top notch. The device is like lightening fast without being overclocked. Clockworkmod and root will push this device over the top as far as verizon devices go right now. Until the 4g bionic comes out and 4 g is available in more places, the DX2 is the most underated device on verizon right now. I am certain the D3 is right up there with it. Folks are bitter and negative…lighten up and be happy people :)

      so glad you said that….can i have one of your upgrades?

      I handled one today and the only noticeable difference was jagged angular lines. Like the number “7” has a lagged lower part.

        There are some differences, but they are rather minor. The screen still looks better than previous Moto devices. And the thing is quick! People are different. I won’t say screen quality is not important to me, but speed and processing power is more important to me…that is just what matters to me. If anything could be improved about the phone, other than adding 4g, I would want more standard SD card capacity, but I can add that too if desired. I think the phone is underated because of the 4G phones on the horizon. But once again, I have a couple of upgrades in the hole, so it is easy for me to pick one of these up and wait to see what happens in a couple of months. With root and clockwork mod, I may not set this device aside too quickly, though. That is good stuff!

    china sounds sketchy

    • http://buy-gynexin.com buygynexin

      I also wouldnt trust any products made in china, online made in the usa for me

  • Xyzromain

    Found in a random chinese forum , gee sounds safe to me
    Probably put there by china govt

  • DShizzel

    I’m leary of chinese software or firmware on my phone.  Just sayin’.

    • chmcclellan

      Yeah, because MIUI isn’t arguably the second most popular distribution after Cyanogen.  Look at it this way, the hackers in China have to deal with significantly worse than Moto can toss at us.

  • stm^

    with all the other options out there and upcoming (bionic, gs2) i couldn’t have imagined myself using my upgrade for dx2 from a dx but i hope those of you that have this phone now have a glimmer of hope :).

    First?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=716789798 Lonnie Kerchief

      Yep. But I’ll be the first to say that I’m so glad I’m off my DX2 and on a D3 now. Hopefully this gives a glimmer of hope to those stuck on the DX2 now, though.

        The DroidX2 just seems like such a disappointment. They could have waited a few months and put 4G in it.  And idk why Moto went with the Pentile Display, the HTC qHD displays knock it out of the park.

        • IMNS

          If they waited an put in 4G they would have called it the Bionic.

    • digsoreos

      You are correct, sir.
