    you dont need to "port" anything, open the zip
    go to /system/app
    and load some .apks onto your phone and see if theyll work

    Car dock works, Live wallpapers not yet, ringtones of course work, regular wallpapers, Multi-touch keyboard works after being modified. FM radio is being worked on. Hopefully Motoblur gets modded.

    Well other that pulling some .apk's the early response from the dev/hacker community is that the Droid X will not be getting root. Motorola has signed the bootloader. No custom ROMs no nothing. So unless Moto screws up or something leaks what you see is what you get on the Droid X. With that said, if true and no root happens on the Droid X, Droid 2 and possibly even the Droid Pro then Motorola will be losing a customer as I will be going to HTC and whatever carrier has the device I want. Truly is a shame.

    Yes, that would suck...

    I also saw a thread on XDA that someone tried the music player and settings, it has an EQ !

    Does anyone else besides me find the fact that the bootloader is signed and locked down tighter than a drum disturbing?

    So no one figured out how to get the live wallpapers yet? What about FM radio and Blur?

    I actually heard the contrary on the issue of the signed bootloader. I had heard Motorola had basically given up trying to stop us, and realized that it was a selling point to have an unsinged bootloader.

    As far as apps, I'm on 2.2, was able to install the Music.apk, and can corroborate to the EQ in there. However, I get FCs whenever it tries to go to the now playing screen.

    i hope you're 100% correct about the bootloader, but do you have a source for what you heard?

    Whether the bootloader is signed or not, this could be a sign of what's to come from Motorola and other companies in the future. Hopefully it's the latter.

    You see that HTC has sent out cease and desist orders to some sites hosting Custom ROMs for the Incredible and EVO. I would hate to see this happen from other manufactures, especially when Google openly supports the "hacking" community of Android OS.

    You know, there are so many blogs, I really don't know which one I saw that on, and I can't seem to find it, now that I'm actually looking for it, lol. Then again, I also heard adamant statements that the Droid X isn't running MotoBlur of any form, and yet the system dump has all kinds of blur references, so who knows how accurate any of the information we are getting right now is.

    Anybody have any idea how to speed up the bootanimation? im reunning the droidx bootanimation on my droid, it seems slow tho, and jerky.

    i figured this was coming. they left the droid unlocked to let the community hammer out fixes, hopefully the droid2 will remain unlocked, but it wouldnt surprise me if they were all locked tighter from here on out.
