    I'm not sure why I couldn't find anything about this easily but...

    Has anyone figured out how to run the webtop dock as full screen android? Much like having a tablet with a keyboard? I don't want to run firefox (wtf, why isn't it chrome?!) I'd rather just use the native OS on my phone.

    I can't possibly be the only person who has asked this but I can't seem to find info on it. I am excited about the Bionic because of the dock... but I don't want some shitty proprietary system, I want to use stock android on a big screen with a keyboard while I charge my phone.

    Help?

    1. Run webtop
    2. Run Mobile View
    3. Click right-bottom button looks like rectangular
    4. Move your mouse pointer out of the status bar
    5. Then it looks like full-screen Android with Keyboard!

    I personally use this feature very usefully.

    Got one question, how do you switch from Mobile View to Webtop? Sometimes, the Atrix 2 connects it goes to Webtop, but, most of the time, it stays in Mobile View. I just can't seem to find out how to switch back and forth. Thanks!

    Which dock are you using? With my Atrix 4G and Lapdock, when I dock my phone and webtop launches, I have the mobile window open and webtop desktop at the same time. If you are running ICS, then you will not have this feature anymore, since they did away with Linux.

    I have an Atrix 2 and had upgraded to 4.0.4 something like that. Ive been using a lapdock100 my did bought for me. It's been almost 2years using the lapdock constantly. At least 5 hours a day because i don't have satellite tv or a computer desktop or a laptop. problem 1: The lapdock stopped working. Absolutely no power going to it even though phone ports work desperately that is connecting hdmi to tv or charging phone. problem 2: Anyway my phone won't shut off. I turn it off and it goes through the motions of shutting down them seconds later it goes back on. I checked everywhere i could to find what's wrong. I don't know. Problem 3: Also when i try to make something bigger by pinching out it acts weird & doesn't cooperate. There's more but...HELP PLEASE. Its my only sources of connection to what's out there.
