Reality Check: Modding the DROID X may not lead to a bricked phone Boy Genius Report
So apparently, the Droid1 has an EFuse...
Thats why we can't root them, right? And why modding is dead on motorola?
Look, from the facts...not the hearsay, or the rumors...there is little to no evidence that this is what the EFuse is intended for. Theres an FM tuner built into the Droid1, but to this day, it still has no implimentation.
Sure the DroidX's bootloader is going to be tougher to crack, sure. uncrackable though, that remains to be seen.
So why are you rooted? So that you can customize stuff thats otherwise uncustomizable, or so you can tether, and so you can tweak the specs. That about sums up the bulk of the reasons.
The DroidX is fast as hell, right outta the box, so really no need to tweak unless thats just your thing. It's my thing, I know that, and I would love to do it...but right now, the DroidX is easily one of the fastest devices on the market bar none, if not the fastest...and its not even running Froyo yet people.
So you can't customize the notification bar...yet.
Tethering? Well tethering is something that we might all eventually have to snuff up to, and go ahead and foot the bill. Granted there are other providers that give this service for free...but hopefully one day big red will see the error in their way, and just give us back tethering for free (not like they ever gave it to us in the first place, we just kindda took it).
So, long story short, someone cried wolf. Simmer down...and like the article says...its just a phone.
