    Has anyone been able to successfully load up gingerblur, or any rom for that matter, without any problems?

    I would like to get rid of the stock rom, but am hesitant to not screw things up.

    From what I read, no, not at the moment since Gingerblur uses the AT&T firmware which isn't compatible with the Bell's firmware.

    It could, in theory, be done. The main problem is that if we screw it up somehow, there is no way to get back to stock.

    ATM, you can't ROM your phone as the Developers have not codded their ROMs for the Bell Atrix. Most won't, unless they have an SBF for a fall back option in case members brick their phones.

    First thing you should do is Freeze all of the bloatwares and what Blurr apps you don't need/use. I used titanium backup but there are other that is cheaper that will do the trick. Freeze and not delete as I believe it's agreed (by the community) that we might need those apps when we will get updates. I believe there's a post in the root subforum that mentioned this.

    If you're into theming, you can deodexed your phone.

    If you want more battery life, get an app like SetCPU and underclock it.

    That's basically what can be done atm with a Bell Atrix.
