Part of Alltel wireless is owned and operated by verizon and uses the cdma network(s) (just so we all know that) :) ... given that you have a ICS maxx, i would say that some of the roms found here may work with your maxx..... however ..... and this is very important.... most of the work for the OG razr ICS and maxx ICS (xt912) done here (roms, utilities, themes, etc) are based on 6.16.211 for Verizon....... we are glad that you came here to look for "stuff" for your maxx..... will try to find out a little more information for you on this.....

Just to add some more info... The hardware in the XT908 is supposed to be identical to the xt912, however the keys used are different. Being that Alltell and Verizon are the same company I would start off by finding someone you know with an xt912 and try swapping SIM cards. If that works, the prospect of fastbooting to an xt912 software might be worth considering. However, no xt908 files are known to have been leaked so it would be risky.

Rooting would still be safe I would think, but I'll defer to someone else because I've never looked into what exploit was used. Just don't Safestrap or try to flash anything without a trusted dev verifying it is not a suicide run.

I've got a similar situation. My XT908 is on nTelos, and has NO SIM card. It runs on a 3G network only; they are supposed to go to 4G/LTE in late summer 2013.

I'm looking for reliable root info on this. (BTW, I read that nTelos currently uses Sprint's network if that helps anyone help me figure out how to root.)

Here are the specifics:

Chairwolf, rooting should be the same process. I take no responsibility for damage to your device, but if you want to follow general instructions to install Safestrap 2.11, make a backup and send me the systemorig file that will reside in your backups folder, I can try to throw together a patch for you.

Just so you guys know, I have rooted my Alltel Maxx with the EPRJ Easy Root and it worked great. Check out the following link-

I also installed safestrap and went through some ROM flashing but kinda got scared when I couldn't find an SBF for it. I did try CM9 (I think) and ran into a boot loop problem. Lucky for me I ddi a safe backup which saved me. I may play with it some more soon, But I am kinda timid ATM until I know of some way to get a bricked phone back to Alltel stock. Gonna play with Easy-sbf and sbf_flash when I figure them out and see if I can do it from there. Just don't want a brick......

If I could get an SBF file, that would be ideal, but I'm not too worried about it. All I should have to do is uninstall Safestrap, and un-root to go back to "stock". I posted some flashable ZIP patches to make ROMs work with Alltel here, if you'd like:

What kind of issues with Safestrap? Are you using the new SS, or 2.11?

I'm a little confused. Can I install Safestrap BEFORE I'm rooted? If so, great, b/c then I can make a backup for Chris to look at. Soooo, will SS work prior to being rooted anyone?

thanks
