also i have a 2gb sd card, is it worth installing cm7 on the sd card instead of internal?
It wipes your phone. You use Titanium Backup to backup your apps. Your contacts can be backed up to your Google account. It automatically installs to your phone overwriting your ROM.

The Atrix has more storage space (16gb vs 8gb) and a slightly smaller screen (4" vs 4.3") and bigger battery (1930mah vs 1785mah) which results in better battery life. The Atrix 2 also gets rid of the Fingerprint scanner, which might not be a huge deal to some. However, the Atrix 2 does add FM Radio and an 8mp camera, but keep in mind more megapixels does not equal more quality, but rather allows the picture to be blown up larger, for lack of better terms. Also, the Atrix 2 natively supports 1080p video recording, but CM7 and numerous other ROMs on the Atrix allow it as well.

Anyway, that's just my take on the phones. Here's a straight-up comparison:
http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3...&idPhone2=4199
The battery difference doesn't matter as much, because the Tegra 2 was a power hog. It NEEDED the battery. I'm speaking as an Atrix owner (not going to buy the Atrix 2, even though it's only 470usd on Amazon).

Actually, the Pixels are indeed square on the Atrix and Photon. HOWEVER... they are still counted by each subpixel pair. It's not true RGB stripe (it's roughly 1/3rd lower true subpixel count vs RGB stripe - not that it matters on Android, since it desn't support subpixel rendering like iOS does (even WP7 doesn't, despite MS' Cleartype experience on the desktop)), and Pentile's reputed "battery life savings" by going Pentile were wiped out by the Tegra 2 SoC. This sucker gets hot in the lower right if I use it for a while. Hotter than Galaxy S hot.

Of course, my Atrix has the most HORRID black crush I have ever whitnessed out of a LCD TFT panel

The battery does make a difference. I got almost 2 days battery life as a heavy power user. With the new battery that is significantly cut.

Battery life on my Atrix is outstanding, and I don't have any heat issues. I don't see myself upgrading to another device for some time, there really isn't anything that slows the Atrix down- and I'm using stock gb.

I just put CM7.1 on my atrix. Everything works for me except the fingerprint scanner, man i miss that fingerprint scanner...

I WAS having some issues with WiFi loosing connectivity after being asleep for a few hours, but juice-defender seems to have fixed that.
Screenshots included to prove just how different it can look

I just got my atrix a few weeks ago. I'm all about modding stuff, but I haven't been convinced of why I should install CM7 on my atrix or what it is with that motoblur stuff that makes it so bad. I was really interested in being convinced to root it, but losing the fingerprint scanner is a bit of a deal breaker.

I honestly couldn't stand Motoblur when using my buddies phone. CM7 or any AOSP ROM will be ten folds better than using Motoblur IMO.

I guess I just don't understand the difference between having a phone with motoblur and having one without it. This is my first smart phone, so as far as I know, it's like every other android phone.
