ROMs: DROID3 and Bionic See First Batch

The first set of ROMs for the the DROID Bionic and the DROID3 are starting to pop up now that we have official bootstrap apps and an easy root method.  The two we have listed below each have been de-bloated, include tweaks to build.props, and run on the latest firmware available.  There will likely be many more on the way, including one from Team Liberty which is rumored to be available in the Liberty Toolbox already.

ROM Threads:  Unleashed (Bionic) | Steel Droid (DROID3)

Cheers Brian, Jason, Graham, and Connor!

    Call me crazy, but I kinda like the new Blur; minus the bloatware. I’ve done vanilla, LP, ADW, Sense, Touchwiz, and old Blur…and so far I’m diggin the experience on my Bionic.

      you know, after about a week of Blur….the new car smell has worn off….Blur still sucks bollocks. The gallery is shyte, there are so many intertwining coding between Blur and Verizon, and the Blur camera app….is just garbage. Give me back my vanilla please! :D

    Loaded up the Unleashed last night and it is nice so far, but i was getting much better battery life with the Team BlackHat debloat than with this rom. I am going to more days of usage before making a final judgement though.

    Damn. And I just sold my Droid 3 for a Fascinate.

    Question – is there any way to get an apk of the stock Swype from my Droid 3 and install it onto another phone?

      a fascinate lol you are a tool

    • Stephen D

      Why would you do that? I went from a D3 to a Fascy, and it was such a huge upgrade…I don’t get why you would downgrade.

    I just got a $827.89 Samsung Galaxy Tab for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

  • Esmccarty09

    So if we used bootstrap to do a backup can we just install this zip file to our phone and us clockwork to load the zip from the sd card how we used to on og droid?

    Kellex,

    I just wanted to let you know that it seems that the HTC rom posted was kanged from Team Bamf without any permission.

    Seems not only are there questions on Chingy’s kernels, the “port” of the Vigor RUU for the T-Bolt is now being called into question as well.

      Seriously…this shit gets so old.  Removed all references to that Vigor stuff.  Appreciate the heads up.

        How is going to be the gpu of that crap kellex THE REZOUND?

  • franzie3

    hate to be “that guy” but the vigor port is not true vigor, looks to be a kanged version of SoaB…

    Don’t think I am going to put a custom rom on my bionic yet.  Running the debloated rom posted on this site a few days ago and love it.

    So if I am rooted and used the bootstrap app I can use rom manager like I did with my OG?

  • Anonymous

    But…but…but the bootloader is locked. I gotta wait for the Prime and its unlocked bootloader. i don’t understand…locked bootloader. helppppp!!!

    I really need a sarcasm smiley

    • Anonymous

      who cares about unlock bootloader? I know i dont.

    • LivinCraZy

      And who ever said the Prime will be unlocked as well on release. Many things have been getting changed since the chatter started about it. IE like it running stock Android ( ICS) which word is traveling it will not anymore and have there touchwiz overlay and the list goes on.

    Cool!  Glad to see some D3 love.  With word that the official OTA is coming soon, does anyone have advice re: waiting to root/flash?

    • http://www.facebook.com/borgey401 Andrew Borges

      best advice i can give you is to stop thinking about it and just root it already. if you follow directions closely then you have absolutely nothing to worry about. you have to be pretty stupid to really brick a device. not to mention you have RSD in case anything ever did happen.

        Sounds pretty solid thanks Andrew

      I rooted my Bionic the 1st day I bought it, threw on Titanium Backup and removed bloatware immediately

    TeamBamf had the Bliss Sense 3.5 several days ago.
