    The droid X's will be upgraded in 42.

    I am not sure when it will be out, but I was at a verizon even the other night and one of the tech's said that the droid x will be one of the first to get it.

    Can't argue with that. Hopefully that comes sooner rather than later.

    wondering the same....42 days, weeks, months,years...what


    overall faster performance, different look, screen off animation, fixing the screen dithering (when you have a gradient background that goes from dark to light, you notice the color bands (lines) this update should fix that) and it will probably include the SMS bug fix as well.

    42 is a reference to hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, where 42 is the "Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything"

    +1 for the 42 (i thought i was the only one who regularly says crap like that)

    we will get it when TBH says so, or if the kexec module is able to be used successfully (im thinking it will, just a matter of time)

    perhaps someone close to the project can shed some light on this: assuming this bootloader hijacking project proves successful, how hard is it going to be for your average user (not average by verizon's standards, but someone comfortable with flashing, etc) to use this exploit?

    D1 will be loved cause of the unlocked bootloader.

    Currently the kexec module is purposely hard to access so n00bs don't hose their phones. The final module will be pretty easy to install, I'd imagine. Ask aliasxerog here or on twitter about that.

    Nope, just spreading word about the awesomeness that is Google. The answer was contained within four of the first five search results ;)
