All I can say is good luck and any work you do is greatly appreciated by all!
If the moto updates have the ability to change the bootloader and update the kernel, surely they must contain some useful info for us. there's got to be a key buried in there somewhere that unlocks the bootloader.
someone really needs to tear into these updates. i really wish i knew what i was doing so i could. maybe one of these days ill learn the android OS workings enough to be useful...
Ideally I would like to see a cracked bootloader. My boot flowchart is pretty complex and the big thing slowing me down right now is the kexec kernel module and getting all the different parts of dxinit (that's what I named the project btw) running and debugged. I'm also making it as source portable as I can so maybe other guys can use it to get kernels running on all phones. Also the source code to the standard init it pretty dirty and weeding through it all is nasty. I've been throwing around the idea or porting gentoo's openrc to android because it supports most of the stuff I need out of the box and I already work on that so I know the code damn well. Give me some feedback on what you think about my last idea and if you can help I'm always looking for it.

God I am so redstoned right now. (<3 minecraft)
It's really nice to hear that the locked bootloader is still being worked on. The knowledge and time being put in is greatly appreciate. I would love to contribute, unfortunately I have no knowledge of linux kernels. Just wanted to say thanks and good luck.
I thought koush has a fix for the bootloader?? He selling it in the market for 2.00

This would be awesome.. the fact the Motorola locked this is ridiculous. The whole reason Android managed to grow so fast and that Motorola is even relevant right now is that they exploited the fact that Apple held 100% control over their device and they put out a product that the users had control of.
