Hello... This is the first modified firmware based completely on the last stock fw that Motorola launched (R564_G_12.00.49P). This time I decided to start from the beginning because some modified fw are even slower than the stock. This is a sign that something is wrong so I have to start from the beginning to see what elements are causing this loss of speed. Black Storm is carefully compiled to get the best performance and stability so far

It is dedicated to English and Spanish users (the name and language of extra applications are automatically adapted to English or Spanish language). There are two versions, the standard one and other with kaledoiscope

The main advantages are:

• Loading of applications are up to 100% faster in comparison with previous fw (only version without kaledoiscope)
• Fixed problem that in previous firmware the message service weren´t loaded at the beginning. This was the reason I lost many messages, one of the main motives for which I decided to do this fw
• Possibility to use the telephone without the SIM card
• Skins can be loaded in SD
• The music is played smoothly. There are not annoying clips
• Correction of media player. Now it is possible to see all type of signs!!! It has also a softer displacement in the menus
• You can use the radio without earphones!!
• Synchronization with Motorola Phone Tools
• Voice recognition included. Reading the message
• Intel Xcale tool to make real-time underclocking/overclocking
• Application to rename pictures with graphic menu (fotoren). It changes the name of the moto_ * picture to the following form: yyyy-mm-dd_hh.mm.ss.jpg
• SD Manager completely redesigned. Much more efficient!
• New program: Skin Manager
• Camera with zoom up to 8x
• Tap writing method improved
• Incremented volume
•New ringtones
• The low battery annoying sound were replaced with a vibration
• ilove3d Kernel v1 (ext2 and ext3 support, multiple keypress)
• Utilities (PhoneWareManager, System Info, Intel Xscale, SD Manager, LoadSDskin, Desktop visuals, Lights control, Refresh phone, Reboot, Fotoren, LinkSYS, BootGreetings, Print screen, EFEM)
• Included mpkg:
Adv Volume Editor: to edit volume table. Allows sound increase, decrease and equalize
Backup Tools: Creates and restore backup of contacts, alarms, lists of music, skins, applications...
HideFolders: to hide folders in your SD
Open With: to associate file types to a program
Vmemory: to create swap virtual memory from the cell. Very useful if you have not created partition swap yet
VR replace: to replace the voice key function. Two programs can be linked to this key because it includes short and long pressure
• The brightness isn't modified when you makes overcloking/underclocking
• Possibility to change the voice commands easily!!! You should put on the file "command" that is in this download, inside the folder my_favor.
• Skins: OP, Revolution, Alkali (stock)
• MotoID working and stock games
• Descompresor of rar; zip; tar; tar.gz files
• My_FAVOR automatically executes:
   apmd (to make overcloking/underclocking)
              myfont.ttf (to change the font of the skin)
              ezx_volumetable.cfg (to modify the volume)
ui_start_up_mono.wav (to change the sound when the phone boot up)
• In both versions there are not support for squash files system as proved to be an average of 15% slower
• The download includes three mpkg:
Rockbox: music player
Zmplayer: video player
softlock: software keylock (by C + *)

The version with kaledoiscope adds the following functions:

•   Software keylock (by C + *)
•   Copy/Paste function
•   Multitasking for ezx-application
•   Icons in submenus
•   ilaunch bar

Attention: this version removes the synchronization with Motorola Phone Tools and it`s a bit slower

Important: This FW doesn't modify your operative band. The frequencies your network works aren't changed

This package contains:

• Firmware
• Installation guide
• Motorola USB drivers 3.4 & Telnet drivers
• RSD Lite 3.8
• Apmd Pack
• Voice commands modification kit
• Triband flex pack
• Mpkg Pack

Hey mati77! Thanks for the release! I just got home from an all-night drinking marathon. Still ain't sleepy so i turned on my PC and went straight here to Motohell! and i found this new firmware! Even though i'm still a bit woozy from the drinking, after downloading Black Storm i'll be testing it immediately.

I'll be installing the non-kaleidescope Black Storm on top of my MAXX E2 II kaleidescope. Posting results and performance/speed comparison after. Wish me luck!

(btw, the VR Menu in MAXX II was a nice feature. Hope it's also included here. hehe. But i see that VR Replace is already included. Good to know we can modify the key binding to our own liking)


nice, ill try it later, cause i have at least 1 week with the maxx II but im downloading now.

Thx for the share

ps. i try both version (non-kaleidescope and kaleidescope) have same problem.


What do u mean u're phone get freeze after startup?
I flashed my phone with lp0021 and got that freeze problem but only when typing sms..
Try to set off 'learned my word' and 'offer complete' option on set prediction menu..
I'ts ok with my phone
and i get bahasa indonesia on my phone now..


for other language please use language pack that are in http://www.e2mod.com/content/category/4/23/31/. don't use extreme language pack's
