    rainabba writes "Aside from rooting the DroidX (which was also done by Birdman), getting a custom recovery running is the next most important step in being able to flash custom roms. As of 6am GMT-7, Birdman and accomplished exactly that. It will take another day or 2 to polish the recovery and process to a point where it's viable for the average Android "hacker", but this should lead to Froyo on the DroidX, and who knows what else. It also PROVES that eFuse means little to us and Motorola has failed to prevent the "tampering" of their devices just as every other manufacturer has.

    Yes I knew this day would come! And my wife wants to downgrade from her X to the Incredible because of the crappy camera on the X. I had faith that custom roms would come and fix the camera issues dancedroid

    Thanks Birdman

    Birdman has ADB working in his temp recovery environment so we are one major step closer to a usable recovery and Froyo for everyone. RT !

    QFT, +1, Cheers, and all that goodness.

    Moto is going to finally release Froyo and nobody's gonna upgrade to it because everyone will already have it. Pwned.

    The great thing is, guys, once this is perfected... Moto can't do anything to us about it. As long as you stay on non-moto software, they will never be able to patch the exploit that allows us to do it.
