    Bootloader hack was a hoax. Nenolod even admitted it. Sorry, all. Back to the regularly-schedule program...

    Following this on twitter.

    When can we find out for sure?

    How long until we get full custom recovery or Cyanogen?

    ...and how did he find this? Lol.


    Definitely excited!

    While I am hesitant to get too excited for this and I will wait until actual custom recovery is reached, I think for the time being we copy this information down and spread it as much as possible. Motorola already took notice, so finding all the remaining instances is their top priority.

    2048 bit encryption would take a lifetime with brute force IIRC.

    It would probably take dozens of lifetimes to brute force that kind of encryption
