I unlocked the Bootloader and installed MROM(cyanogen7.7 mod) this gives me fantastic battery life and no overheating/4Hr battery life I was experiencing with the stock Motorola ROM.
Seriously, the stock ROM is CRAP!
Battery life was max 4.5 Hrs running 3G/texting/surfing.
Charging, I could fry an egg on my phone, battery reporting was all over the place, mostly 1/2 charged reporting 230% charge @ 3800mV...
I like this phone, I now LOVE this phone with MROM as the OS.
Battery life is fantastic.
Audio, Full DSP GUI takes advantage of the Wolfson 5.1 audio chip and with FLAC as the file format the sound is unbeatable.
I have BOSE QuietComfort 15 headphones and demoing this to different people, they can't believe the audiofile acoustics that this tiny phone produces.
This morning I had the WiFi/3G and Music playing for over 5Hrs and still had 30%+ battery left.
I'm not sure if its the Cyanogen or Michael Montuori's coding work and tweaking that makes this a winner ROM, but the next phone I purchase will be one that Mr. Montuori has developed the ROM for.
I will always keep this phone, I even might purchase a used BU phone to keep as an audio player, its better than any other audio player I have owned or listened to, in its current configuration.
Learn DOS .. The instruction you found online are not
100% accurate .. Done two of these phones.

BEST Custom ROM for Atrix 4G Neutrino ROM v3.02, great rom. i am using it from last 3 month. super fast speed with good battery backup.
to all those people out there who own a motorola atrix 4g and have unlocked their bootloader 4.5.145 and are having sleep of death issues aka SOD where the phone does not wake up after a period of inactivity download moto software updater from motorola website and follow the on screen instructions moto software updater will download the stock 4.5.145 and automatically flash it and finally u will get rid of sleep of death issues and remember u will have to be in stock firmware the moto software update wont recognize your phone if u are on cyanogenmod word of advice if u are already on 4.5.145 never unlock the bootloader because there is no unlockable bootloader for 4.5.145 all the unlocked boootloaders are from previous versions so even though they unlock the phone there will be consequences like sod and random reboots on high temperatures so bottom line is u have to go back to stock many people will tell u to flash via rsd lite but trust me rsd lite is of no help as it wont be able to flash successfully because 4.5.145 sbf is not available and rsd cant downgrade so it will give an error message error switching phone to BP pass through mode but the moto software updater will be able to download the 4.5.145 sbf from motorola website and flash it automatically
thank you everyone

This is like the first dual core processor for a android phone device lovely specs 16GB storage 1GB RAM (random Access Memory) one GHz CPU speed Which is a dual core cortex-A9 Which Only support android OS GB 2.3.4 now in the specs this is the shocking part not upgradeable to android OS JB 4.1 or 4.2 or even android OS ICS 4.0 wow what a let down now look at this galaxy ace 2 specs 4GB storage 768 RAM 800Mz which is a dual core OS android GB 2.3 oh i almost forgot its upgradeable to android OS JB 4.1 now the atrix 4g has more that the power under the hood to run ICS or JB because the S2 which was release a few month after the atrix 4g runs on 1GB RAM 1.2GHz Dual Core processor which is the as the atrix cortex-A9 now in other for atrix 4g user to upgrade to ICS or JB first your Boot loader has to be unlock Then you have to get a custom ROM which most of them are unstable and the worst part is when you install a custom ROM you cant software update again cause you will break your phone. Motorola make one of the best and turn it in the worst right now because of this you are losing a lot of customer with empty promise cause you promise ICS and then cancelled it shame on you for that it was best you create it and it was buggy that to promise and meet it and its not to late to make a ICS or a GB for this device and it would be cool cause a lot of user would get back a atrix 4G it was the first dual core phone i thinks it should have being the first to receive ICS and JB.
