    The impressive work of some of our own members here at DroidForums has not gone unnoticed and could use your assistance if you are a driver developer on Android. AliasXerog and some of his team, PalmerCurling and Jaxidian, are 'hard-at-work' developing an ambitious kexec module for the Droid X. This Mod will allow someone to boot a new custom kernel over a currently running stock one, which will give us full unlocked root access to the device. This capability has so far eluded the best in the Android community.

    They recently released RC2 for the kexec project, but are still missing driver support for some functions. This mod is pretty hard-core stuff, so consider 'testing' it with caution.

    Here's a statement from Jaxidian,
    Since the time of the above quote, they have made some progress and Jaxidian had this to add,
    There's even more! They are also working on another pretty ingenious project. It is an Android app that will, "...help install our releases so that the average Android user (well, average DroidForums user) might be able to install the releases since it's all still VERY low-level and difficult to do. That would be very useful, and I can envision a ported version of this app could do amazingly well for other situations as well." - Jaxidian

    Here are some useful links if you want to try out their stuff or offer assistance with their projects:

    As always, be very careful, because like the man said, "This isn't for the light of heart to work with," but their hard work is much appreciated, and I'm looking forward to seeing the final 'product'. Help get the word out so we can come together and make these amazing projects happen!

    That's the funny thing - you can still help! The person who found our wifi drivers wasn't a dev. Check out the forum in the story's links.
