bOOStedICS Android 4.0 Rom – Droid X

  • As I wait to upgrade my smartphone, I decided to see if I could find a good, stable, Ice Cream Sandwich rom for my Droid X.  I found the b00stedICS rom by BMc08GT and firstEncounter.  It was just updated to build 2 on May 11th and runs very well.  My phone runs alot faster now that I am not running Moto blur.

    There are a couple quirks which are noted in the known issues below.  When powering on the device, the screen is black for a little while.  For me, it’s not a big deal because I never shut down my phone anyway.  Also, I haven’t got Netflix to work.  It opens fine.  If I try and play a video, the video is black.  Other than those 2 things, I am very happy with this rom.  If you have a Droid X, I highly recommend you check this out.
