Update Motorola Atrix 4G to CyanogenMod10 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Custom ROM

• Last modified: Android Tips

Motorola Atrix 4G (MB860) can now be updated to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, based on CyanogenMod 10 custom firmware – all thanks to the developers community. This ROM is still in a very early build and there are many bugs in it which would be hopefully squashed in future releases.

In this tutorial, we will tell you how to install CyanogenMod 10 (CM10) Jelly Bean 4.1.1 firmware on AT&T Atrix 4G MB860 with complete steps. Backup all your data as this tutorial will wipe your personal settings and apps. Let’s proceed with the tutorial now.

Make sure you have installed all your USB drivers for the Motorola Atrix 4G to connect it with the computer. Download Motorola Atrix 4G USB drivers! Apart from just the USB drivers, there are a few more things that you need to take care of.

1. You need to enable USB debugging mode. This helps to connect your Android phone with the PC. See here: How to Enable USB Debugging.

2. Your phone battery should be 80-85% charged. If your phone goes off suddenly because of battery, during flashing ROMs or installing mods and updates — your phone might go dead permanently. See here: How to Check Battery Percentage.

3. Backup all your important data that you might need as soon as your flash a new ROM, or make a backup for just in case, you never know when anything might go wrong. See below on how to backup data:

4. Your phone should be factory unlocked. Additional instructions for locked Android devices will be added in the tutorial for unlocking devices.

Now, let’s proceed with the tutorial on the next page and update Atrix 4G to CM10 Jelly Bean 4.1.1 custom firmware.

      The only thing the Atrix 4G and the Atrix 2 share are the name. The Atrix 4G is Tegra 2, the Atrix 2 is OMAP.

    I installed the epinter JB Rom and it was fantastic. Everything worked (included the Nvidia tegra 2 video chip. The only thing that did not work at all was the Video Camera. I could take photos but not videos. As it is very important to have the camara on the telephone right now then I had to go back to CM 7.2.

    Please keep up the amazing work! :)
