Swype FTW
I've actually used Swype for the past 3 months but I recently switched to the stock Gingerbread keyboard. I actually got a bit tired of having to wait for the word to show up before I continued to "swype". A non issue for the Gingerbread keyboard.

That's the beauty of rooting. You can completely get rid of Motoblur or HTC Sense in my case, and there's a lot less bloatware on your phone.

AT&T had it for $149 online day I went to store get mine. He was gonna charge me $199 but said hey pick any equal $50 accessories you want..and he will take off the $50 from phone price.

This makes total at $149.
Now my mom was with me as she needed a new one as well and she got a simple 3Gs, but loves it. So we got a case for her than and there since they had a (buy 2 get 1 free sale). So 2 cases and a free car charger for the Atrix.

Back to that accessory he told me to go pick out. he pointed me over to iHome mobile speakers;
http://www.ihomeaudio.com/iHM79BC/

He said they were Bluetooth at the time, I didn't even freaking look at the package for more than 10secs and said ya sure. Not even checking tech facts or anything, just knowing iHome does make some nice stuff in the past. But he kinda made it sound like it was a side deal that he was taking $50 off.... like leaned toward me and whispered..

Turns out when I got home and was setting up moms phone and saw the total price we paid... All he did was take $50 off phone price, make sound like you save, and then charged me for the ihome speakers.

i was maddd that i just let something that easy fly over me.. but the ATRIX was so pretty i wanted it NAO and get out of store.

Lesson learned: BUY PHONES ONLINE from now on.
at costco, atrix is 99.99 if you get the 2 years contract or uprgrade primary line and 129.99 if you upgrade your line(not primary line). 144$ tax included and i got free car charger, headset and pouch compared to bestbuy or at&t 199$ +60$ tax from the orig price 600 without accessories...
love mah rig

Rooting does not aid directly to install custom ROMs; the bootloader on the Atrix is still encrypted and any custom ROMs possible will be based on the default Atrix kernel.

I pre ordered the phone and the hd dock. now that the new update was released its a lot more stable and no more screen locks and reboots.

waiting for the Gingerbread 3.0 update. i tried the different loaders and keep coming back to stock Motoblur because its just well thought out.

Did you try the opera browser? its a lot faster and some even say it taps the phone's gpu via hardware but i dont know how considering the comments that Fryo 2.2 does not support gpu.

using the map navigation it looks fully 3d accel to me and it gets really hot too. very impressive device using it now for amazon cloud video stream. looking forward to kal-el quadcore

BTW the 1.57 OTA update could make the Atrix unrootable. In my case, I have to flash back to a previous version and do a rooted update manually... which I haven't done yet. Tried previous rooting methods but none work, unless someone would update the Auto-Rooter to crack the 1.57 firmware.

That be awhile, Just flash back to 1.26 and root then update to 1.57. Took me about 45mins from start to finish (with some worrying and fast heart racing).

Just follow this and read, and let me repeat, read, and again, read the instructions.

who ever said that OPERA browser is great, THANK YOU very much, the browser is a night and day differnce between the stock internet browser, all i have to say is WOW, its like sitting on the computer when using the OPERA browser, im really really happy now, although the stock browser was great, but durring some heavy flash sites, it would have a tiny tiny delay when scrolling, zooming was flawless, but now with OPERA, its flawless in every single aspect of your internet experience on Motorola ATRIX, im so happy to have this phone.

also i think absolutly everyone should download this game listed below, it was specifically designed with Tegra 2 in mind, so the graphics are mind blowing compared to anything else out there,

GAME: Samurai II :Vengance THD(THD stands for Tegra HIGH DEF)

also i highly recomend downloading the TEGRA ZONE app, which provides information in one convinent locaion about all the applications that are in the market place that take full advantage of the Tegra's powerhouse.


P.S:
here is a vidoe on youtube for the gamemake sure to play it in 720p but it looks even better on the phone)




Here is the tegra zone:
