1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    How long will it take for us to get some stock Gingerbread goodness on this Droid 3? ^_^

    Also, i'd assume the bootloader still isn't unlocked which is necessary for custom roms, but at least now we've got root which is a feat in itself.

    Its necessary to replace the kernel/boot stuff; but we saw plenty of near-aosp roms on the D2 before the 2nd init process was ported over. Right now I'm just happy to be able to remove (aka rename) some of the motobloat away. Not that I'm brave enough to remove the blur* stuff yet (and probably won't be without clockwork recovery and a nice SBF if things go really bad) but I've removed a ton of the preloaded crap; even got the full version of GTalk from the xda forums working. If you appreciate the work on this; and can afford it; throw djrbliss a few bucks for his work, he deserves it!

    We need a few things..

    An .sbf would be great.....the ability to recover to stock is mighty nice when screwing with the system.

    A recovery....clockworkmod or such, perhaps a bootstrap method ala the DX/2/X2.

    The complete list of needed proprietary files to pull from the Droid 3

    Adding those to the AOSP pull of the Gingerbread branch....or a pull of CyanogenMod's gingerbread branch....

    It's going to be a while, though root has pushed us forward a few steps.
