    I can't see how oc on the bionic is even needed especially at this point in time. Don't know about others but everything I do is already blazing fast. Oc'ing will only really hurt the battery

    which is why i was more concerned with the unlocked bootloader project. This way if i can do it someone can just build a custom kernel for oc. But it is considerably harder and i really dont have alot of time to work on it. I will probably work on the OC first though as the method used there is going to be a stepping stone for the unlocked bootloader. The difference is what i will be doing for OC, same idea has to be done in stock recovery so that it will flash.

    Not necessarily, the ultra low voltage 1.35ghz kernel module on the DROID x(also locked bootloader) was very similar battery life to stock voltage and clock speeds.

    And honestly did you buy this Motorola phone not hoping to be the next D1. I remember when I first overclocked my d1 to 1.26 ghz on a cpu that they said should run 550, that's over double. Battery life was still good if running ultra low voltage kernel. I still miss that beast!

    maybe we need to get a dev hired on at motorola to steal their secrets... like a spy show >_> then we wouldn't have to hack it all :D

    good luck man, wish I knew more, and if I have the time I may just take it to learn the "more" I need to know to get this done.

    update: i gotta install debian on my pc here so thats going to take a little time that way i can go through the source code for the kernel (its where the functions i need to hijack are) once i can get the platform built and dissasembled i can go from there. bear with me guys im trying. as of right now i am just working on the OC then i will start on the unlocked bootloader. if anyone wants to try to do what i am doing here follow milestone overclock wiki dissasembly instructions. the function is different on our phones so it is going to take a little longer and anyone with C++ knowledge should be able to break apart the coding for the bionic.
    Edit: also with tday tomorro and im getting a tat today dont hold your breath just yet. pm me if you think you can understand what they are saying in the dissasembly and ill let you know how far i have gotten.

    I have been following this thread whenever I was able to. A lot of it goes over my head. But I figure if I hang out with the brains, I might become smarterer. Lol

    But I saw this:
    androidadvices.com/perform-bootloader-unlock-process-phone/

    I know it says something about HTC. But it also says something about just Android in general. And other manufacturers if I read correctly. So I am under assumption that this *can* theoretically work for all Android. Could it have really been that simple all along to use SDK and we were making it more complicated than it really is?

    I mean it kind of makes sense when you think about it. It could be "so simple, it's hard" kind of a thing. And if you really want to hide something, put it in plain sight.

    I dunno. Just a thought or theory. What do you super uber smart people think?

    If your question was directed at me, I am not sure exactly. A lot of stuff goes over my head. I am, however, able to read and pic out main ideas formulate a (un)educated guess of it is plausible or not. Therefore, I know just enought to get myself into trouble and then wonder how in the %$#@ I got there in the first place! (Which seems to be a characteristic of us Yanks, sadly - I saw under your avatar that you're in London). Lol.

    I know the lines may have had something to do with Android SDK, I believe. I am self taught on Android SDK/ADB after you guys here and other forums gave me plenty of reading material on it so I could .sbf my DX1, DX2, and Bionic (but the Bionic uses a different curriculum now).

    If it was not directed at me, my apologies for talking out of context.

    *Edited

    No it is not this simple. The bootloader is signed with secret keys that only Motorola has. Without these keys it is near impossible to crack this.
