    The bionic is just realizing its potential. Check out some Jelly Bean roms and you will realize its still a great device

    I'm happy with the Bionic on ICS. It still being officially on GB is just ridiculous.

    I know it can run JB and before long there will be a good working build whether official or not.

    At that point it will still hold its own against 80 percent of the devices out there. And it will probably still be kicking when I finally upgrade. I'll do that with unsub, unlocked, prepaid device. Project glass would be nice.

    Edit: didn't see the posts above me when I was typing this, so this is just reinforcing those.

    I really do think we will. I think the latest leak kind of puts us in a position for that according to some of the guys on on here. and while it may not be official I'm almost certain that we'll have a properly working jelly bean release from the community. the stuff thats out there now really could be a daily driver for me. a few of my camera apps just wouldn't play nice.

    You know big brother red they could mess up a w......... nevermind But they really need to do like other carrier and just release the device as is. Heck even At&t is doing it.

    The leaks won't occur unless the Bionic will officially get JB. Maybe a JB ROM instead.

    Even so, I understand that cheesecake won't work with ICS (because of the security change), but that may have changed.

    well I think maybe kexec will let us modify the kernel (or rather fool phone into letting us use our own) so hash or another kernel dev can deliver full experience..

    What exactly does kexec do? I have stock CM 10 but I don't really get what would be different about kexec

    I can't explain technically what it does--but it basically it allows loading a kernel in place of the phones kernel. I think it folks the bootloader. @hashcode0f has (or had) info on it on his blog. At first, I think there was other stuff needed for kernel and so it want really worth it, but I think some interfaces/like api's/drivers or something, became accessable from moto so it's now doable but still alot of work.

    Sorry so vague, I just kinda get the idea and trust that the details are legit. He actually explains things well if the info is still on his site. (Even if I read it again I doubt I could come back and explain very well. Site is hash of codes if you search (that's still how I get to it). It's kinda his blog/journal
