    That sure would be nice. We'll have to wait and see I guess.

    I wonder how much they spent on it. Here's hoping it truly is a way to unlock the bootloader, and not JUST froyo, even though that would be nice. Especially with talk of a september release.

    Wow! That was quick. Hope we get some good news. If this thing is crackable, these dudes will crack it.

    Now that they have the dev X, what exactly do they do with it??? I am assuming they go into the system files and copy the code which pertains to the bootloader image? Is it a matter of their simply knowing how the code is written, and then write this code into an app or set of instructions that can be executed?
    Or is this way too simplified of an assumption? Not being a programmer, I'm just curious what they do. I'm trying to picture these guys sitting around a table with the phone on the table in front of them...saying "ok, NOW let's see what we've got???" !!!!!

    Yeah I'm trying to figure out what they'll do with it too but, I wouldn't know where to start lol. Then again these are the guys who gave us root so I'm sure they'll figure something out

    +1 to the guys at Alldroid! However... is anyone else worried that 2.2 is giving a quadrant of ~800? Didn't Froyo make the N1 go from 600 to 1400 or something crazy like that? Maybe I've just been overly optimistic...

    They also said that the possible reason for the low score was due to JIT being off.

    Yessir! 1558 and they say flash is running better than the Droid with Froyo. This is going to be SWEET!

    Thats MUCH better! Now for that bootloader crack... (Honestly I'd have paid an extra 100 for an X that wasn't locked down)

    alldroid.org mainly, as well as birdman's twitter feed, and rootzwiki twitter feed.

    I'm excited that birdman was able to get a custom recovery running...

    Looks like the bootloader might have been cracked.

    They didn't crack the bootloader, they just circumvented it.

    Meanwhile, Birdman's twitter's gone missing and @alldroid posted this yesterday, so who knows:
    Looks like @koush is about to prove our time a waste unless it turns out we have a better method. Since he didn't want to work together ...

    They've been working on a custom recovery method since they got this dev phone, meanwhile koush has been doing his own this whole time. He didn't want to work with birdman or rainabba and now he's got his own thing possibly releasing soon (he was first to release pictures with proof of concept) and I get the feeling Alldroid team is a little upset about it. Sorta a bad situation...

    It is, but a collaboration could also benefit us. Someone will do it.

    if kush does the recovery, doesn't that mean all we have to do is download rom manager to flash the recovery?
