No posts since Gingerbread has been leaked and rooted...
This sucks. Really. It blows. Even though my Rooted Gingerbread is smooth as silk... it blows.
I'm really hoping that something happens.
I know nothing about writing code, or anything developer-wise. I've barely been with Android for almost a year. Rooting and ROMing are about the extent of my knowledge.
But from what I've just read here on these forums and whatnot.... this is what I've gathered.
There has to be some way to hack the hardware of the phone to find out the information needed to crack the bootloader. If all the drivers are signed, and the HARDWARE (the phone itself) looks for that signature, then isn't there some way of getting into that hardware, and rewriting the programming stored in the hardware to where it doesn't even bother to look for a signature/key, therefore making it to where we can but any bootloader we want on, and therefore making the whole phone unlocked?
It's just an idea. Like I said, I really have no clue what I'm talking about at all. I'm just reading and thinking.

Even with the signing keys it's impossible to fake a signature.
The only way this puppy is getting hacked is after many, many computer-years of effort in a brute-force attack. The only way that'll happen in our lifetimes is if it's a distrubuted-model, similar to the BOINC project, and even then it's iffy. However, if the bypass works on GB then there's a very good chance we'll have truly custom kernels running eventualy.
