Custom ROM on Motorola Q *Project*

I am starting a project up, although the device is old it is still a good device, I am going to be working on getting this to work, Once I do get it, if I do, I will try and expand everything to the new Q devices, Qc and Qm and stuff like that.

So I will try and post my progress here has i can get it.

Where I stand right now.

I have files decompressed, I have all of the dumps, for a verizon Motorola Q monster file. I have SYS and OEM from those. I have found the IMGFS start address and I am working on getting the xip out of there now.

The motorola q has a rom size limit of 78000 KBS, it uses XPR rom compression Type.

I am working now on getting the xip like i said, going through the files with a hex editor trying to find everything. once i can get the xip out, i will be able to build the rom and everything. once i get that made, I will need a test device to flash and see if it works.


I have posted a message in Bargin trader about someone having a Moto Q I Could buy for this project thought i would mention it here has well.


Stay tune for future updates.

Re: Custom ROM on Motorola Q *Project*

This would be awesome. It would be great to update my wife's phone. She is jealous of all the flashing I do to my touch pro.

ok that's good news.
I gave up on it and gave my girl's lil' bro the Q
I purchased an Alltel TP.
I would of kept it if I had knew that there was a project in the midst.
I like the scroll wheel on the right side.
Its just a good phone to me.

What are you gonna do when Alltel completely transitions over to Verizon?

This is fascinating. Keep us posted. I just started using a Q (waiting on a pre) and I love ROMs.
