      • David, I updated my unlocked and rooted ATT Atrix 2 Mb865. coming from ICS 4.0.4 and using ATRIX2Bootstrap.apk. the install all went well, I am now on 4.2.2.

        A few problems:
        1- the HDMI output is gone in settings, and I can no longer use my hdmi output to stream over the net.
        2- i could not do a full nandroid backup, in recovery mode. I am missing the boot.img and recovery.img. I got an error in cwr and would not backup the boot and recovery,
        so how can I go back to ICS without these files?
        I own another ATRix 2 Mb865, is it safe to do a nandroid backup on that other device and copy the boot.img to my device? and restore, if so how is that done ? using the CWR or fastboot

      • I have idea about rooted. But what do you mean by unlocked? Please let me know, I want to update my Atrix2 MB865 Asian version.
        My phone is rooted, having ICS 4.0.4.
