Re: Android 4.0.3 ICS

I'm pretty sure there will be no ICS official update for the Defy+ from Motorola and believe they have pretty much said as much?


If you have a search around there is a whole community dedicated to ROMs and Firmwares and quite a bit of help there if you read up. You can pretty much update to ICS yourself though you'd void your warrenty (such as it is?). I'm not allowed to point you to the 3 letter website but no doubt you'll find it yourself. I have flashed ICS onto my Defy plus and it feels a fair bit faster than with GB. Even better - my Defy hasn't (to date) rebooted since installing ICS so well pleased. I've encountered no probs and wonder why Motorola hasn't offered ICS, though no doubt have their reasons.



 Nope you are wrong in the part of voiding warranty! In fact check out the video posted by XDATV on US Indepenence Day.. You may even sue a company if they deny you warranty due to root! But to be simple just unroot and do SBF flash and you get back warranty!


If only they could have unlocked the kernels and bootloaders we would have had even better custom ICS builds!

Re: Android 4.0.3 ICS

Yeah, I have already found the ICS version for my device, but my question is how will I be able to revert it back to original 2.3.6 firmware, if the ICS version doesn't workout for me.

Re: Android 4.0.3 ICS

Great news: Defy+ will receive Jelly Beans update. Unofficial, off course. With only few developers, JB will be ported on this phone.


Motorola is losing customers with this policy. Razr Maxx or Razr HD looks good but I'll never buy a Moto exept the case if Moto will release a Nexus phone.

Re: Android 4.0.3 ICS

To get unofficial update we have to root the device, but how can we root defy plus which is having BL7? Please help me, I am searching for the step by step guide since last month.
