For those who used the Exit Strategy of going with the G2, take a look @ this puppy - G2 running ADW Launcher EX (Home screen and app drawer program) The G2 in this video is supposedly running with Android OS 2.3 (Whatever its running, its fast and smoooooooth!!!) Take a peek! Look at the G2 fly

Here are some other screen shots of the ADW Launcher EX replacement app:

Hi Hugh, Welcome!

We all feel your pain. But now you can do something about it, one way or another. Its very empowering, LOL. At least its a whole lot better than Moto's dangling carrot torture. Ask out loud if you need help

Should just have to type 'ADB devices'
However, I never seen the IMEI number for my phone, just a 10 digit alphanumeric, but either way it was my phone and it was recognized. Hope that helps.

I keep getting a 'adb' is not recognized as an external or internal command, operable program or batch file message. Does anyone know what that means?

Make sure that you are in yours tools folder of the androidsdk directory in the cmd prompt eg C:\AndroidSDK\tools
make sure adb.exe adbwinapi.dll adbwinusbapi.dll are in that folder by typing 'dir'
if all checks out just type 'adb devices' and it will work. From the sounds of it though, you don't have adb installed in the right directory or you're issuing the command from the wrong place.
I know that the android sdk r8 release didn't include the adb files for some reason, so I'm attaching the 3 files needed just in case you don't have them. Just extract these to your AndroidSDK/Tools/ folder and you should be good to go.
One more note - you should have the folder path in your environmental variables. Goto Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings > Environmental Variable - then in the system variable window dbl click the "PATH" variable and add the location of your tools folder eg C:\AndroidSDK\tools to the end of the path string
Make sure that the new location is separated by a comma like the rest are.

Just had to register and for the record, canadian geese are white and fluffy and found in the sky. It did not take that as a correct answer during registration.

Has anyone tried the Z4 root app on the XT yet? Its listed as compatible with the original Cliq but no mention of the XT.
[APP] z4root - xda-developers

For anyone wanting to try it just download the app to your SD card, browse to it with a file explorer application and run it. I've used it on a few samsungs and it worked well on those. Wish I would have known about Z4 before, trying to root on a linux machine was a painful waste of time.

lol that's funny about the registration. I believe I tried the Z4root, but it wouldn't work for the cliq xt, maybe it was just me. For the record I used SuperOneClick [APP]SuperOneClick v1.5.5 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developers
It's not flawless and just one click though, it more of a timing thing, but ultimately it does work and rooted my XT. Hopefully this serves for future reference.

Just curious - Did you get root Asym?

I rooted with the standard windows instructions. I usually run linux but I also have windows loaded on one of my drives on this netbook. I used to also have OSX loaded but got sick of the updates breaking it and just use linux on it now. Trying to root in linux is a major pain and I found the z4 after I already rooted, so thought I would post it to maybe see if it made it easier for others.

I do find it funny how much easier it is to root Android(linux) from a windows machine. In linux the guides I found require over 400mb of install files.

I'm finally free of 1.5 and it feels so good. I have no respect for Motorola engineers. Modders are the best. I'm running ADLX mod and it is great. The speakerphone fix worked great as well. Moto can now go to hell. All those who are thinking of modding it is worth it 100%. just be careful and follow the directions closely and you should be fine. If you need help there are many knowledgeable people in the forums to help you (you can read through the post too, any problem you're having I'm sure was encountered and solved by someone else). 2.1 rocks hard.

Thank you for the files. Now, I need to know where I should be typing 'adb devices'. I went to the search bar in the start menu (Windows 7) and typed in cmd, the black cmd box popped up, and I typed it there. Is that where I should be?

Cool ROM's

I want to root/rom my wifes XT but don't want to do all the patching like on mine.

No rush. Just wondering. Thanks for all your hard work.

In the CMD box type
cd / (that will put you at the %systemroot% or "C:\")
cd androidsdk/tools (that will put you in the proper folder assuming yours is named appropriately)
dir (to verify that the 3 adb files mentioned in earlier post are in that folder, if not, put them there)
adb devices (that will list any adb devices connected) *Don't forget to have usb debugging turned ON the phone
Now if you see your device (should be the only thing connected), then you're ready to start the root process with whatever method you choose.

Hope that helps.

Default So close...any help would be appreciated

Was sailing through the process of getting 2.1 on my XT. I made it as far as flash_image and the USB cable got knocked out of the phone. Now when I plug the phone back into my computer I get device not recognized. Is there any way to fix that? I still have a working phone but can't finish my "project". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Overbord. I used the recovery image I found in the beginning of this tutorial (also a very good tutorial on how to Load custom ROMs):

How To: Load a Custom ROM on the Motorola CLIQ XT / Quench | TheUnlockr

I have to say thanks again to all the modders that made rooting and custom ROMs possible. MM and the whole gang. You guys are the best.

Thank you so so much for helping me out. I am rooted now and loving the Cliq XT. Thank you to MasterMind for creating this super smooth rom. Thank NV for creating this thread for us who wanted to learn. Thank you to everyone else that helped!

I ran into a few peoblems during the actual rooting process but they were typing mistakes. You guys truly are the best!

Im now about to load up the speakerphone fix!

As to modding. Mastermind278 is around here and hopefully we can get him in here to answer some questions. Here is one of his videos showing the XT running Froyo:

Ok...I got Barelyblurred up and running on my XT. I could not have done it with the great directions that I got here. I am able to follow directions fairly well but now I want to fix the speakerphone toggle. I am not sure how I do that...don't quite understand the process. Could one of you walk me through it? Happy New Year and thank you for all your work!!

Happy New Year everyone. I'm running 2.1, was it a dream? Is it 2012 and Moto got it out in Q4? No!

Special props to great devs like adlx and mm278 for all their hard work in getting us what Motofail couldn't or wouldn't.

Default Moved Over...

So I have finally made the plunge over from the cliq xt support forums which I will still follow, but being beyond tired of waiting like many others, it is time for me to gain the "best user experience" by my self since the money has, as of yet, not been able to get it for me.

Happy New Year to All!!!

Here is where I am going to start:
1.) Figure out how to root the xt so that I can revert back if I need to
2.) Get rooting

I'm jealous of the way the cyanogen mods look, they have nice themed builds. As far as I know, they don't have anything near as stable and functional as adlx. So I have a couple of questions.
Is there a way to achieve these kind of looks with adlx?
The boot time and screen itself are a little less than desirable, can I mod this?
Finally, I'm pretty quick to learn and eager to contribute; What software or resources do I need in order to modify roms? I love what this community does and all of the people involved, and I would love to help push things forward and help us bring our underdog XT into the light.
Any suggestions or advice would greatly be appreciated. I apologize if I'm veering off of the topic too much.

@lcihon40 - BB and Motoblur currently do not have a working speaker fix. I am waiting to get an extra CliqXT in order to be able to do some more developing (as my CliqXT is currently my only one). Hopefully I can get one soon enough and be able to do some more extensive testing to get fixes out for those builds.

@Everyone - For those struggling to ROOT and reverting back, you can always use RSDLite and bring the phone completely back to stock: CLIQ XT & QUENCH firmwares Superthread
(Will only work if you are a Windows User).

@41rw4lk - If you want SIMPLE/Easy Themeing of YOUR PERSONAL ROM, I'd recommend using Metamorph as it would be the easiest to use for novice users.
To modify ROMS, honestly you need a nice booting Linux Partition to really start doing much of the modifications. Again novice users probably should use an Android Kitchen to help facilitate things.

Default i'm out; here's my strategy

i've been with T-Mobile forEVER, so my exit strategy was to call Customer Loyalty, and try to talk them into helping me out. i told him why i was calling, and he knew the story. Here's the interesting part. He said there had been a few very small trials of 2.1 sent out to select customers, and he said he would try and see if he could get me into one of those groups. i said, "That'd be cool, but i've got another suggestion." i told him that my wife was due for an upgrade (she's still using a RAZR v3), and there's a buy-1-get-1-free on the MyTouch 4G for new customers right now, so i asked him if he could get me the free phone if she bought the upgrade. He hesitated, but then said he could do it.

Now, my situation is somewhat unique, because i seriously have been with T-Mobile since they were Powertel, so this particular guy was willing to work with me. i think he was also happier to help us since we would be buying at least one of the 2 phones. And he's going to have to follow-through with those billing tweaks. But, for now, i've got 2 new mt4g's coming in the mail.

i'll keep monitoring this thread, because it's interesting, and i'm still toying with the idea of rooting my CliqXT, but since we'll have to shell out some money for one new phone, i may just put it on ebay.

@jmasters I'm glad that things worked out well for you! And thanks for sharing your Exit Strategy process!!! I'm sure that it will help someone.

I was going to ask for the BOGO deal on my family plan too. The deal that was offered was: Agree to a renewed 2-year plan on one line, Buy one G2, MT4G or Samsung Galaxy Tab and get a unit of same or lesser value for FREE. The lesser value phones are: Moto Defy, Moto Charm, LG Optimus T, or the T-mo Comet for FREE. T-Mobile Announces BOGO Smartphone Deal Starting Black Friday | Android Phone Fans - The deal/offer is good til January 18th

Enjoy your new phones! And if you decide to root your XT, we're all here. Whether you root or not, come hang out anytime!!! All the best to you and your wife

Default Recovery Image Hiccup

Okay, I've moved over from lurking in the Moto forum & now taking the plunge into 2.1. I worked through all the steps in the Unlockr and had no problems rooting, but when I'm trying to start "su" from a shell to flash the recovery image, I keep getting "could not load libbinder.so" errors.

Connectbot on the phone shows the hash # symbol, so I'm pretty sure I have root access, but I'm stuck here.

Any help out there?

@michaelrbanks - Do NOT user SuperOneClick Root... it doesn't seem to work on our CliqXT.
Please follow the proper rooting instructions found here:

Did you at some point try Super One Click? Trying rebooting the phone and then try again.

[ROOT] Cliq XT
I rooted with SuperOneClick, it was seriously all about the timing I guess. I did have to try about 2 dozen times (no joke) but as soon as it rooted the superuser popped up and asked for permission. I tried the manual way a couple of times too, never had a glitch and everything went just as it should, but it would never hold root, more specifically the su would never link or whatever it does. So in my opinion, rooting the XT is kind of a shotgun approach, you just have to keep firing till it finally hits. I know Mastermind is the pro, so I would definitely follow his advice, I just wanted to share my experience so that people can see it isn't always cut and dry. Good luck and thanks again for all the hard work and efforts on everyone's part.
*Note - With superoneclick, I disabled usb debugging as soon as it pushed ratc, then once it was waiting for the device I enabled it, that seemed to kill the loop and do the trick. Again, it seriously is all about timing with superoneclick.

Another Motoforums lurker checking in here. Just finished rooting/flashing my 19 year old daughter's XT with adlx and she couldn't be happier. She is a complete non-techie and doesn't know 1.5 from 2.1 from a hole in the ground, but she did know she couldn't run Angry Birds! She can now, and says the phone is running much faster than before (though she mostly uses it for texting and she had 3,000+ messages stored on there that I just archived on the computer and didn't restore, that might have something to do with it).

THANKS A MILLION to all of the devs who made this happen and everyone who provided links above. Your efforts are very much appreciated!

Default Overclocking

I have adlx 2.1.54 kernel 2.6.29
Everything is working pretty decent, but I see lags here and there (I'm not bloated with junk either)
I seen a post about overclocking here The Cliq XT has been OVERCLOCKED! - Page 4 and it has a link to an OC kernel here http://db.tt/ycGv1ff

Can I flash this OC kernel? Right now my max is 528Mhz and I can't go higher. The reason I mention it is because they reference adlx 2.1.54-1 which I believe is a patch that has some cleanup and minor fixes.
If I have everything straight I need to apply the incremental 2.1.54-1 patch, then apply the OC kernel... right?
I need some advice, I don't want to get everything out of sort and end up making a big mess out of my phone.

*Nevermind, I got it. Done a little more reading and research (should have done that first lol), I have everything flashed and updated. Now I'm cruising along at about 710Mhz and everything is smooth. Makes you wonder why the XT couldn't have been this sweet right out of the box.

**Spoke too soon, after a reboot I get bootloops. I really need some advice because I can't go back to 528Mhz lol. @Mastermind278 show me the error of my ways

I apologize if I'm out of bounds or not posting where I need to.

I can't wait to try this, I've only been waiting to see how the bugs got worked out and it seems that it has.
I don't have internet on my home pc so I was wondering if some good samaritin would zip up all the files needed to root and flash, and the appropriate files that need to be flashed ( not even sure I'm using the right lingo)
I'd like to download everything I need to my phone and then transfer the folder they're in to my computer.
If this isn't possible then maybe just a list of files needed
Thanks to all the mod gods

Don't worry. Just go down 20Mhz. I have mine running at 690Mhz and have not had problems for over a week. Battery life went from "awesome"(2+days on heavy usage) to "great"(over a day w/heavy usage, provided I don't forget to turn off remotedroid at night)
I'm sure you'll be more than happy with the results. And put a setcpu and airplane mode toggle widget on your desktop for playing 3d game. That way in a few clicks you can boost your phone to 748Mhz and w/airplane mode tuned on, it actually plays 3d games pretty good.

@41rw4lk Did you get your problem fixed? You might have to nand restore to a previous state if you are just getting boot loops. I would try to keep the phone at around 710Mhz as suggested somewhere else. But it all depends on the individual phone. My phone hasn't had any issues with bootloops at max speed, though some how at max speed it LAGS at times.
