I have been contacted by a member here requesting this be reopend. So It is. Please remeber this isn't a full rom and to try to keep it on topic
sweet. hopefully since Pete and others have got their hands on it they can make a nice stable, rooted 2.1 ROM. I'm really hoping the multitouch browser on it is less laggy than the one we have now. And does this one have the 2.1 launcher, or has it been confirmed that it uses the old launcher for 2.0.1?
well after watching the actual video, looks like old 2.0.1 launcher with only 3 screens. Kind of sucks, but with root that is easily fixable. As long as the thing has all the 2.1 APIs, the official multitouch browser, and multitouch gallery I don't care about anything else.
I believe it's either a leak of what was supposed to possibly be ota'd on jan 22 or it could be what moto had ready and yanked after the backlash, I don't know. But reading alldroid it appears pete has had this for a few days, problem is that it's a legit(well kinda) 2.1 so he lost root, thus he can't pull certain things out of his phone. that leaked zip is just a /system dump but there is no /bin or boot.img and a few other things which he can't pull off since he doesn't have root.... unless that's changed since i last saw?
might be helpful for some of the rom devs, but hmm I don't know. by the time things get all nice and stable the real 2.1 ota will prob be coming anyways... and I'm guessing that since they yanked the update when they were about to ota it prob from the complaining that launcher and live papers are probably being added in? *shrug* still cool though.
So if Motorola is taking some type to actually code the new launcher so it works right, good for them. But I think the problem is more Verizon being its typical slow, controlling self and they are testing this thing into oblivion.
