The Motorola Atrix 4G is a popular device these days still a year after its release. The issue we have here is that Motorola pushes out OTA updates and if you try to get that update without flashing to a completely stock ROM, Stock Recovery and Unroot the device you will brick it.
Those of us who have bricked our Atrix with the most recent 4.5.141 update have noticed that there are a lot of people complaining that their devices are bricked with the error “Failed to Boot 4″ as well as Starting RSD under the error.
Don’t worry your device can be recovered and its a pretty easy process as all you need to do is flash the 4.5.141 ROM with RSD Lite and presto your device is back in working order.
First of all we want to thank the CyanogenMod team and Jokersax for all the work they have done to get a fully functional CM9 build ported to the Motorola Atrix 4G. The CM9 build for the Motorola Atrix 4G does have a few bugs but for most they will not even be noticed and I’m sure that the current beta build will be released as a stable build very soon as it works great.
Download CM9 and move the zip file to your SDcard (Download Link)
Reboot your Atrix 4G into Recovery from ROM Manager
When in Recovery select Wipe Data/Factory Reset
Wipe cache and wipe dalvik cache
Navigate to install downloaded zip from SDcard
Choose zip from SDcard and select the ROM
Reboot your Atrix 4G
Congrats your Atrix is on CM9 Ice Cream Sandwich!
After you have flashed your device to CM9 you will need to install Gapps to get all of the Google Apps required to access the Android Market etc (Download Gapps). You will flash Gapps the same way you did CM9 from steps 5 and 6.
If you have any issues installing CM9 on your Atrix let us know here and we will try to help you out. As always we are not responsible for the use of these instructions and you flash your device at your own risk.
And after the ROM is Installed this is what it looks like:
After updating your Motorola Atrix 4G to software version 4.5.141 you will lose root access. For those of you want to root your Motorola Atrix 4G after updating to build 4.5.141 this is how you do it.

While we discussed earlier in the week that the Motorola Atrix would be getting an update that might be Ice Cream Sandwich, we were wrong and hate to say it. It looks like the Atrix 4G is getting updated to version 4.5.141 to include a few security and bug fixes but beyond that not much more. It also looks like if your device is rooted you may not see the update at all but is looking to be pushed out February 7th.
Motorola Atrix 4G Update 4.5.141 Features:
Latest Android security fixes from Android 2.3.6+
Bluetooth voice commands while the device is asleep
Improvements to the Messaging and Contacts applications (unspecified)
WiFi settings update and AT&T Mobile Hotspot usage built-in
Increases in stability, power management
While we again are sorry to even be posting this it looks like the Motorola Atrix may never see the update to Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich officially. We can say with the Atrix’s hardware that it will get an unofficial fully functional ROM at some point beyond what is already available via CyanogenMod 9.
Those of you that want to get back to the stock Atrix 4G 4.5.91 ROM for one reason or another here it is. Many of you are going to be involved in the upcoming soak testing and some just need it back to stock to get a replacement and are worried about warranty. Keep in mind that this image is for the AT&T Atrix 4G. Either way here are the instructions.
While we haven’t verified this, the ROM you flash here may or may not be able to receive OTA updates. Also you may not be able to flash to an older firmware after doing this without an unlocked bootloader.
Instructions to Flash Motorola Atrix 4G back to Stock 4.5.91:
Boot the Atrix into “Fastboot Mode” (hold power + vol down)
plug your Atrix into your PC via USB
Navigate to your fastboot folder via command prompt
type “moto-fastboot flash boot boot.img” press enter
type “moto-fastboot flash system system.img” press enter
type “moto-fastboot -w” press enter
type “moto-fastboot reboot” press enter
Grats you now have the stock ROM when the Atrix turns back on
As always we aren’t responsible for your use of these instructions and its recommended that you have a working knowledge of the process before starting. This being said let us know if you have any questions and share your reasons and results with us.
We have had many users of the Motorola Atrix ask us if it will get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, we don’t know the answer but here is what we do know. The answer is not as cut and dry as we would like but it seems there is a possibility that the Motorola Atrix will get Ice Cream Sandwich. This of course probably would not be an official release due to the fact that Gingerbread has only been on it for a short time. Also Motorola from past experience only releases one OS upgrade per device.
This being said the Motorola Atrix with the Gingerbread update allows developers to do much more than with its previous Froyo version of Android. Now that the Bootloader is able to be modified rather easily we can expect CyanogenMOD or a dev over at XDA to develop a compatible kernel at least to allow for better chances of Android 4.0.
With Ice Cream Sandwich being released in the next month or so we would expect it to be ported over to the Atrix soon after due to the phones user base. We will keep everyone posted as we find any information on Ice Cream Sandwich for the Atrix.
There will be a new Atrix and its name is the Motorola Atrix 2 or the Motorola MB865. Many of us thought that it would be released under the name Motorola Edison but it seems that this is not the case. The specs and image that we have of the Atrix 2 are courtesy of “This is My Next”.
TIMN is the one confirmed the official name of the device will be the Atrix 2. Current confirmed specifications of the Atrix 2 are as follows.
Motorola Atrix 2 (MB865) Features:
Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread
4.3 inch qHD display
8 MP camera with LED flash and autofocus
8 GB internal storage
1 GB RAM
The Atrix 2 is said to give you 8.5 hours of talk time and almost 16 days of standby. Not only this but the new device will also come with a new laptop dock. As we find more information we will be sure to let you know.
AT&T has sent out a press release stating that all of their previously released Android phones in 2011 will receive Gingerbread updates. Included in these updates are the HTC Inspire 4G, LG Phoenix, Pantech Crossover, Samsung Captivate 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G. This all started with the Motorola Atrix 4G Gingerbread update a few days ago.
View the full Press Release from AT&T below:
Android 2.3 Debuted in the AT&T Portfolio with HTC Status, All Post-paid Android Smartphones Released in 2011 Planned to Receive 2.3 Upgrade
DALLAS, July 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –
AT&T* confirmed that upgrades to the Android™ 2.3 (Gingerbread) platform are planned for all post-paid Android smartphones already introduced this year.
Motorola ATRIX™ 4G users will receive an update to Android 2.3 beginning today and HTC Inspire™ 4G users will receive the update in the coming weeks.
Motorola ATRIX 4G update will also provide the ability to download applications from third-party stores.
HTC Status™ arrived in stores July 17, the first AT&T smartphone running Android 2.3.
Customers who purchased an Android smartphone from AT&T introduced in 2011 can expect to receive an update to Android 2.3. All of these devices are planned to be upgraded from Android 2.2 to Android 2.3, also referred to as Gingerbread. In addition, Samsung Captivate™ owners will be able to upgrade to Gingerbread.
Delivery methods will vary by device. Whenever possible, upgrades are delivered over-the-air (OTA), however in some cases the size of the file needed to install the update will require the user to connect via Wi-Fi or connect the phone to a PC to install the update. Factors such as manufacturer-defined software and other device performance improvements result in each device requiring a separate update which will vary in timing.
Beginning today and continuing over the next few weeks, Motorola ATRIX 4G users will be prompted to install the update. To download the update, users must be connected via Wi-Fi. In August, HTC Inspire 4G users will be notified that the update is available and can be downloaded when connected to a Wi-Fi network. AT&T smartphone users can access at any one of the company’s more than 26,000 Wi-Fi hotspots at no cost.
The AT&T smartphones planned for a Gingerbread update are:
Gingerbread delivers a number of improvements, such as user interface refinements, refined copy/paste functionality and speed enhancements. The upgrade offers improved power management that offers a more active role in managing applications in addition to an improved on-screen keyboard with multi-touch support that makes typing faster and more accurate
Currently the Atrix 4G Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) Update is slated for a July 2011 release. AT&T and Motorola after testing the Gingerbread build for a few weeks now have very few bugs to finish fixing. The new update will have a few changes to your Motorola Atrix 4G.
Atrix 4G Update will Include:
Android Gingerbread 2.3.3
New version of Motoblur UI
iOS looking dock at the bottom
Sideloading will be enabled (unknown sources)
While Atrix users wont be getting the current 2.3.4 update this is a huge plus for Atrix users. Finally one of the most powerful smartphones available to date will get a little closer to the function it is capable of.
Let us know how you like your Atrix or what you think of the update that will be OTA in July.
These 3 phones are of course the best phones AT&T has to offer this first half of 2011. This being said i’m sure they will have many more before the end of the year to be added to this list.
While AT&T has many phones to choose from there are only 3 worth taking the time to look at when deciding on a new phone. Below is a break down of these 3 phones along with a short explanation of each. The phones are in order of popularity from most to least. Keep in mind we only picked the best 3 phones so even number 3 is a phone worth looking at.
Samsung Infuse 4G – The Samsung Infuse while a larger phone, is that way to give you an enormous screen for a phone. It is one of the faster phones with a solid design.
HTC Inspire 4G – Even with all of the dual-core phones out there the Inspire holds its own. Not only does it have one of the largest screens of any other AT&T phone it has the speed and video quality to keep up with all others.
Motorola Atrix 4G – This dual-core powerhouse is one of the fastest phones on the market today AT&T or otherwise. It is easily held in one hand and has a screen size that will not disappoint you even if it is smaller than 1 and 2.
We currently have an Infuse and Atrix here at Android Advice and would like you to take note that even though the Infuse ranks highest on our list here the difference between the 2 are not noticeable without using them side by side.
