    Yea I just read their twitter posts...sucks to hear and I know birdman and the nenold guy worked a lot with some other people and got to the exact point that they did with the milestone...kernal loaded but no working radio..between them and the people working on the milestone for over a year im sure they tried every option to get the radio working but never got it so in guessing this is.going to be the same thing...I would loveee to see it happen but who knows...sick of devs moving away from the x because of it. If this thing got unlocked shortly after it was released I couldn't imagine how many amazing roms we would have right now

    Sorry bro, its just already been tried before. We already know kexec won't work, even with kernel modules.

    OP, get at @nenolod on twitter and shoot your idea to him.

    Unless you have a new idea, he's prob just gonna say the same thing...

    Sorry, I would love for it to work, but we've already done it.

    KEEP TRING THOUGH! THANKS

    Well I looked at what everyone did with kexec and the thing about getting the drivers running is that they're two different kernels which need two different drivers. Really though I'm not worried about that as much--someone else will figure it out as I have never written a driver in my life. My job right now is just getting a stable way to get a kernel running. kexec(8) can do it and has done it with every kernel update on my computers for the past six months. The thing about my approach is that its extendable with a config file that will load the new module that works with the new kernel (modprobe ftw). The current system works-ish in the sdk emulator except that the module is quite crashy. Radio works with the hack on the emulator. The issue is that we need to get motorola's drivers running on other kernels.

    So to sum it up: kexec works its just a driver compatability issue.

    Yeah pretty much. That stuff is brutal to do and I really don't know if we can find someone willing. We can even have someone write a compatability layer.

    Have you guys heard of the user DZO over at xda? DZO is a genius with a PhD in computer science. He's the one that pioneered Android on the HTC Vogue (a WinMo phone) and made it possible for all the other winmo htc's to get android (a la HD2, etc). he rewrote all the drivers and such to work with those phones and I'm sure he is smart enough to do this. However, he lives in new zealand i believe and therefore cannot really get an X. Hopefully something can work out with this though...

    I know this sounds crazy, but planetbeing, and iPhone developer ported Android to the iPhone (duh!), and he's written several divers for the project. He has a lot of experience with the kernel (That I've read). You may also want to join #droidlife on freenode and see if you can get a hold of birdman, he has been involved in many projects around the android community. And one more person, that I think would be the best to talk to and the most obtainable is Sebastian Kramer at C skills. He's an amazing Linux hacker.

    If you need anymore info join:
    #droidlife (freenode) or #androidchat (freenode), I'm Webst3r in there, feel free to PM me.
