So who is the person that is knowledgeable with gaining root access and signed bootloaders?
i wonder how many people will change their minds if the x is really locked down as bad as its beeing said
I've known that the X may never get unlocked (mybe not even rooted) since rumors of the phone came out. Im still getting it lol
I'm sure the majority of people interested in the X don't even know what any of this means and therefore don't care about it. If it would actually put a dent in sales, I bet Motorola wouldn't lock it down. I still don't understand why they wouldn't just leave it up to the consumer. I'm paying retail for this phone and feel like I should be able to do whatever I want with it.
Not even a concern of mine.... X all the way!
im gettin one also ,yea id like it to be rooted , i had no idea about the root process untill a few months after i bought my eris , so its no big deal to me lol ive just been readin alot of threads and other places of this turnin people away from the x and i was just wondering if it was really a big deal cuz it aint to me lol
I still plan on getting one as well. Has a full retail price even been listed yet? I'd sure love to get a preorder in.....
I have rooted and tried almost every rom there is for both the Droid and the Eris. I've overclocked both, themed both, etc, etc. I love messing with my phones and I'll miss that if it never gets rooted or unlocked but I'm still going to get the X. It is faster stock than my Droid was overclocked, at least from the videos. Overclocking/ROMing a Droid won't add any more ram, an fm radio, hdmi, or a nicer camera to it.
Full retail is $569 I think and there are no pre-orders. Some VZW stores are taking "appointments" to get one and some Best Buys have "non guaranteed" pre-orders going.
I'm passing on the X but if I was considering it I this would kill it for me.
Gaining root access with these Android devices is a HUGE part of the fun of owning them.
Wait and see until it gets released to the masses and some others get their hands on trying to crack it before deciding this as fact.
With that said there's a strong possibility this is true though. The Backflip by Moto comes to mind.
Add up the number of HTC phones that have not been rooted or unlocked, compared to Motorola.
And why are you passing on the X? Are you waiting for the 2ghz phone?
Tweets between myself and Cyanogen:
@cyanogen Hey, are you guys going to be attempting to root/load custom roms to the X at all? Didn't know if you were going to try X stuff
@guts311 eventually, the DroidX I have right now isn't mine to keep though
@cyanogen Ahh I see. All a matter of getting one to hack away at I didn't see any mention of X in your stream, we all hope you guys can!!.
@cyanogen And whats the word so far on encryption and the loader? @mrweeeedbirdman seems to think it's locked down too tight for custom roms
