Use Motorola Lapdock with other phones? [yes]

The Motorola lapdock can be used with phones other than Motoroloa phones (Atrix/Photon). As a matter of fact you can use some lapdock features with popular phones like the Samsung Galaxy S III or the HTC One EVO. The only limitation comes with the fact that most phones these days have a single micro-USB connector which can either: Charge the phone / transfer data Output HDMI via MHL Act as a USB host via USB OTG (on the go) This

Motorola OTA update for Photon (DETAILS)

Today I received a notification from Motorola about the availability of an OTA (over the air) update for my Photon. Down below you can find the full details.  But first, three important notes: If you have your Photon rooted, reports are that this update removes root. 🙁 There is no mention of a fix for the no-audio problem on Lapdock 500 etc. when using the phone as a WebTop 🙁 This does not update the Photon to ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) 🙁 Details

How to get MSL from Sprint for Photon

I purchased my Motorola Photon from Amazon for $0.01 USD during their “March Madness” sale. I love the phone, however, I have encountered one problem: difficulty in getting the 6 digit MSL number I knew that calling Sprint and asking for the MSL was an option, but I generally despise calling corporations and I knew there were some well known other methods that are done exclusively on the phone itself. So I tried the following methods: #1 root & then getprop
