    Because all the custom roms that are currently available are is heavily modified framework files. The true custom roms will come when we can run something other than the moto kernel which will allow us much much more freedom. We currently cant get true AOSP roms to work correctly (they work but with a tooooon of bugs if i remember correctly) because we can't tweak the kernel.

    This is also why the only "rom" for d2g is fission and its only really a partial rom.

    CRAP!!! I've been reading this thread for a few minutes getting a bit excited about my D2G, then turns out to be all hulla buloo GGGRRRRR. I was getting ready to ask about if this mean Maemo and Meego can be put onto these, but never mind now!!

    Anyone know if there is still hope of getting the Bootloader unlocked in the future?

    Men, sorry if it's a noob question but I really can't find a clear answer.

    I know that Cyanogen requires unlocked bootloader but now it supports D2G since last build (CyanogenMod Mirror Network - Powered by TDRevolution).
    What does that mean? Nothing? That the bootloader has been unlocked with the GB official update?

    If Cyanogen is using signed Motorola kernel as base (would be weird tho!) that means that D2G is not getting ICS by Cyano unless Motorola releases an official update..

    Can anyone clarify this mess?
    Thanks!

    CM7 for D2G uses Motorola's kernel as base. Bootloader has not been unlocked (and likely will not be).

    That's a pity anyway.. I think I'm heading to Xperia Pro, also considering there are no high-end QWERTY alternatives (at least here in Europe).

    Xperia Pro can hardly be called high end, but you're right, not much choice right now. That Samsung Galaxy S Glide looks interesting, not sure if it is coming to Europe tough..
