    Thanks for all the support on my twitter and forum. Now I have a big question for you guys. Next week I'm going to be putting out some code that will see if we actually can get an init on our phones. It will print out a pretty message saying it worked then halt. It will brick your phone. I would totally do this on my droid by I need it next week because I'm going to be out and can't brick my phone for it. If you do want to help me and test it out it will crash your phone and you will have to restore it. Look for a link on the forum. If it works take a picture and post it. Thanks for the help and support.

    Yeah why not brick them all if it will lead to getting it done.
    SBF time.

    Im sure with all the people who are always changing ROMS and trying different things and SBF their phones like every other day there should def be a lot of people willing to do it..between all the forums I check every day I see at least 10 to 15 posts about someone who had to SBF for whatever reason

    I'll volunteer as long as your confident that an SBF will revive it.

    Yeah an sbf should fix it. Just remember to make a nandroid backup. Ill have to see how it behaves in emulation prior to sending it out.

    Also what operating system do you guys run on your computers?

    I'm all for this project. Just realized recently how debilitating the bootloader thing is.

    Also, if it makes it easier, definitely do it on whatever platform. If/when you ever do get it working, it would be very helpful to get it at least windows-accessible (osx can suffer) since I'm sure a vast majority of forum users use windows machines.

    Aaaaaand this needs to get spread around on forums, twitter, etc, so everyone and anyone who could help can if they want to.
