Firetrap JellyBean – Android 2.2.1 ROM (Commtiva Z71 variants)

In one of my previous posts, I wrote about the top 5 Android 2.2.1 ROMs, and Firetrap TwoNights was in the numero uno position. Now, there is this new version from AndroidPT – Firetrap JellyBean, for Commtiva Z71 variants (Motorola XT502/XT3/XT5, Orange Boston, Apanda A60, etc).

Firetrap Jellybean Android 2.2.1 ROM

How better it is from the previous version (Firetrap TwoNights)?

  • Speed – noticeably faster
  • Battery consumption – almost same, with nominal usage I get 2 days and 6 hours. With YouTube and other Wi-Fi activities – 1 day and 16 hours! Ain’t that impressive for a 1200 mAh battery-powered, big screen device?
  • Wallpapers – new, better ones
  • Animation – smooth, not jittery
  • Apps – packs the most used/important ones including System Panel Lite, Weather, Compass, Voice recorder, etc

Overall, it will be a good upgrade you won’t regret!

UPDATE: Just downloaded and checked the Quadrant Score – it’s 660 with JellyBean. It was 446 with Firetrap Twonights. No wonder I’m seeing the device noticeably faster.

  4. Hi, if I have Cyanogen 6.1.2 installed in my commtiva z71, how can I change this to firetrap jellybean? is it possible via clockwork recovery?

  5. query says:

    hi.. how to get back to stock rom 2.1, if we wish to.. since jelly bean is .nb0 extension..

  6. Nash says:

    Hi help please.. Camera doesnt work.. it forcecloses.. i have tried all possible ways to solve it by restoring it back to stock rom using clockwork mod.. i lost the IMEI in the process.. can you help me get back the camera and my IMEI?? Urgent pls

    I just flashed this ROM on my XT502 which had an original 2.1ROM . So far I have found a few apps having a “force close” problem (TweetDeck, Goggles). The bookmarks in the Browser and ringtone setting are wiped off everytime the phone’s rebooted. Waking up the phone with the red and green buttons didn’t work but found a workaround on one of the forums that got it fixed.

    This Battery life seems to be better. Quadrant score is 774.

    How to install  JellyBean + app2SD + DalvickCache on Sd rom. is it possible through ROM Manager

    • ubiquit says:

      Using SUTLR is the easiest way to install this ROM.

      • callmesri says:

        Hi,AS you said, I tried Jelly bean. its flashed properly. But I couldn’t able to move the app to sd card. any additional setting is required?

        • ubiquit says:

          Phantom made two types of ROMs. One requires that you enable apps2sd from the recovery menu (camera + vol up + power), and the other one via settings panel when booted up. Try either of these. Also, go to settings-applications and see if the ‘move to sd card’ option is disabled (i.e., not clickable). Having said that, I suggest you try the Gingerbread version from SuperAOSP (CML) – it rocks! I’m using this now! http://www.ubiquitense.com/technology/superaosp-8-0-rc2-for-motorola-xt502-boston-commtiva-z71-devices-reviewed/3024/
