    I remember what I had, I had a Motorola W755! But no, it was black, not the purple one.. Anyways, that was a neat phone.

    Off topic, so now that TI dropped us, who do you guys think the next chips are going to come from?

    That wouldn't kill it, 800MHz was a "mild" overclock for the OMAP3430. As a matter of fact, with Android 2.2 (Froyo) it actually WOULD run at 800MHz with the stock kernel, at least while running Flash Player (minimum specs for Flash Player were 800MHz CPU, Moto simply tweaked the kernel to allow for that). Mine ran 24/7 at 1.2GHz from the time p3droid and I created our overclocking kernel until I 'retired' it on the day the iPhone 4 came to VZW. With absolutely no issues.

    What killed the touchscreens was dirt and grime getting into the small "crack" between the screen glass and the bezel. I found this out AFTER I threw mine away due to a "broken" touchscreen. If I had taken it apart and cleaned it thoroughly, i'd still be messing with it to this day.

    So THAT'S what that app is that shows which servers have been updated when, 'eh?

    How do you think I *LEARNED* what I know? No one wakes up knowing everything. I was part of the original crew that discovered how to flash boot img's...we did it the hard way back then. But it worked. Now, we're way more advanced and have multiple methods and all that. But all this stuff was born out of the sweat, blood, and tears of those of us that worked on it back then. The community came together to get people back on the OTA path. This is why I feel so strongly about wanting to give back to the community. The HoB is my contribution to the community and payment to those who taught me what I know.

One time I had a Blackberry Storm with a F'ed up "surepress" screen, and they tried to tell me a data wipe would fix it. I got into a lengthy argument about how a data wipe was NOT going to fix an issue that had to do with Torx screws and a messed up screen.
    I do my best but I'm only one person. So far, I've been able to help everyone whether they like it or not. The HoB mostly speaks for itself. The trick to support is to find the pain points and fix them so that the majority don't need support. That's the design philosophy behind the HoB.

    Random thought - I'm actually looking forward to seeing how the Qualcomm-based Moto devices perform, to be completely honest...... Qualcomm has alot of experience with mobile radios as well, and I think they might very well give Moto's in-house modems a run for their money. Only time will tell, but i'd really have no qualms if my next device was Qualcomm-based. The S4 seems to be a nice chipset. A Qualcomm radio mixed with Moto's antenna design might just end up working well. Could be a decent chipset to hold us over until Intel comes out with something decent, anyways.

    Umm.. I know that whatever I was clocking it at wasn't good for it. Maybe it was 1Ghz, it ran the processor hard. Secondly, taking it apart is much easier said than done. The D1 is like many devices where you have to take everything apart and work your way from the back of the phone to get to the screen. Special tools, steady hands, carefully following instructions.. Too risky for me. I still have my D1 though.. Huh.. Maybe a project for another day.

    *LOL* I remember that night in Shoutbox where HoB was basically "born" after John L. Galt bricked his phone for us. Never in my life have I seen an FXZ file "appear" so quickly *LMAO*

It seemed too easy...make sense? I am sure that I overcomplicated and over thought how the scripts were written...until a discussion you were having with me in the .244 thread , (at least I think it was me) where you kinda explained how you were able to make a mini-fxz by using part of the .905 img (I think that was what you said) and with all of the successful updates others had.. at that point I realized you had basically created a very useful and well made program. I have used plenty of community made Mod tools for Simcity4 , that's about all that is available (another story for another day) and if it crashed my computer It would piss me off,but I could at least fix my computer rather easily.. my phone...not so easy.
    The HoB was developed on top of other people's work that came before me. I did some clever tricks to make it work without losing your data. Sarge gave me the method for not rebooting the phone after an RSD flash and that's really opened up some serious power. I've also done a lot of my own development work to make it more powerful and easier to use. The boot img creation is based on the complex manual method that Matt developed. I automated it which was no easy challenge. The mini-fxz was also my idea. John Galt helped me with that one by telling me how to pull certain partitions from the phone such as recovery. It's been an iterative development process to get it where it is today. And through all of the months, it has been COMPLETELY battle tested. Dave and I have bricked numerous times on 235+ and have always been able to recover using the REINSTALL (mini-fxz) option. The dynamic menuing code is something I developed that took a *LOT* of work. It's not nearly as simple as it seems. Even what script to call is done dynamically based upon what option you pick and what files you have available to you. Root is dynamic in that if a new root method comes along, you can throw it in the root dir and as long as it has a run.bat to kick it off, you're golden. The FXZ...that's dynamically discovered. When we get a new one, you'll get a new FXZ installer that'll install it into the HoB. Then you'll delete the 905_FXZ dir and you're fully covered. This project has taken months, but, the results are a tool that is fully dynamic and battle tested.
