Set up Android four.zero.four ICS (CM9) on the Motorola Defy + MB526
As you know both the Motorola Defy MB525 and the Motorola Defy + (Defy Plus) MB526 not have official support from Motorola Mobility to upgrade to Android 4.0 ICS , so if you want to have the latest version of Android once again have to resort to the help of the community.
The new reinforced Motorola DEFY + like its predecessor is resistant to water, dust, shock, etc., thanks to the screen Gorilla Glass and IP67 certification, it comes with Android 2.3.4 – Gingerbread 2.3.5 factory installed and the operators nor Motorola have offered support to upgrade toAndroid 2.3.6 , the stable version of Gingerbread .
So I decided to try one of the versions of CM9 nightlies calls on my Motorola Defy + .
That is what I did:
Going from Android 2.3.4 to 2.3.6 , rooting the new firmware and install Android 4.0.4 ICS based CM9developed by Quarx for Defy + .
The experience has been better with CM9 with Android 2.3.6 , everything is more fluid, have multiple toggles the menu bar or notification bar option to shutdown, reboot in power menu, the battery lasts longer, the WiFi is very fast, and comes with the application switcher v4.0 baseband so you can call and surf 3G with any carrier worldwide.
Briefly worth installing Android 4.0.4 ICS on the Defy + .
Remember that now you can install on your Motorola Defy MB525 and MB526
Because I decided to use Quarx compilations and not those of Epsylon3?
Quarx and Epsylon3 are developers who are carrying out the possibility of ICS in common Defy and Defy + .
By now those of Quarx are better optimized for the Defy + , especially with the last build -120716 CM9-NIGHTLY-Defy +. zip , and works the camera and can take photos and record videos in. mp4.

No matter if you have Android 2.3.4, 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 on your Defy + , the important thing is that you have root access to the cwm recovery installed.
If you have Android 2.3.6 with kernel based on BL7 , you should follow this guide to be root: DEFYPLUS_U3_4.5.1-134_DFP-231 .
It is recommended that if you have root or the cwm recovery installed, you do on a retail firmware can be Android 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 , which is not an operator firmware because in some cases you can brikear your smartphone.
