    No you need the original fw. To flash it with RSD Lite also ramdownloader is needed, which is specific for each phone (signature).

    Nope, they released the source code, nothing says they have to release the binaries. Its like Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

    I wish a fed up Verizon employee would hurry up and throw it up on the internet.

    If it is available it almost has to happen sooner or later. Doesn't sound like security is tight when you can just sneak a peak at how they are doing it. LOL.

    Yes, it can't be long. That is what must of happened before with the old razr roms that circulated the internet. I think there is some motorola tech site that has all the information, roms and ramloaders, but only authorized dealers have access to it.

    The Android OS is open source. A full "ROM" image has much more than just the OS. The apps aren't necessarily, and I assume there's some low level phone stuff which isn't, either (to make ESN/MEID fraud harder).

    Of course, significant portions of the OS are copyright Google, so they can do whatever they want with their code, including not releasing newer versions as open source.

    Finally, Android is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license, which allows use of code in closed commercial products. It basically says that any use must be attributed, but here is no requirement that anyone using the code release their source, or freely release the binaries.

    Still havent had any luck finding it :( But its still a daily search.

    Anyone know how the file names are formatted? i think that information would help greatly in finding it.
