Not yet, lots of issues...

This platform does not lend itself well to any type of development. It has a very complicated structure and since it has limited capability and not much popularity, it doesn't attract much attention from the development community. We have a few guys who know what they are doing working on it, but not a full scale attack like a more capable & popular device might get.

Here are some issues that I can understand:

No usable stock recovery. There is a custom recovery, but you have to have root to install it. No root method has been developed yet. What work that has been done moving a phone between builds has resulted in radio issues, ie no cellular connection after the fact. Some kind of bootloader that won't allow the phone to be booted directly into recovery when off.

So far if you have a phone on build m100 that is what it's gonna be on until you move on to your next device.

the issue was between them going from froyo to gingerbread. has anyone tried flashing someone else's gingerbread nandroid? like from m070 to m080?
this is all irrelevant to the question at hand though. with no way to attain root privileges for the m100 update, you can't go anywhere but to the next update pushed through innopath.

That's not quite true, if there were someway to spoof the recovery to reboot with a "special" update, the recovery could be very useful...

I guess I am lucky, I'm still on M080 due to the update never being able to go through. LOL Is M100 worth the update? The phone never ask anymore for me to update, so as I told the Verizon person I don't actually care to update...they could not tell me what the update was even about.

maybe if i use apk explorer and try to hack the infopath into downloading the 6972396.dat file url to m80, it will work then...i have some experience in programming, buut maybe just modifying code will be easy...

Casio makes the updates, Verizon tests them and then pushes them.
The only way to get back to a later build would be to flash it through recovery. If you're on the latest build, it's impossible to install a full function recovery because that would require root access.
So.... Yeah....
If you could find a way to unlock the bootloader, then you'd have full access to the phone. Smarter men than I have tried with no success. It may require a hardware unlock - combination of test points and special tools.

Edit: also with the updates they changed the radio software. So someone on M050 restored a nandroid from someone else's Commando on M070 and they couldn't get service. Only Wi-Fi. And on top of everything being locked on the commando, the radios are hidden, not in their normal android location.

I know others have tried this. I know a little more today than I did then, so I'll check this route as well.
Buuuuut..... a big problem with innopath is it does some type of system check before it applies the update. People who weren't even rooted had problems with it failing to update. So even if I did hack it, I probably wouldn't be able to apply any type of update because I uninstalled system files.
Edit: and it only works over network, not Wi-Fi. My commando isn't connected.

Not a chance in hell! I went into Verizon to ask a question about the phone and when the asked to look at it I refused. They were clear in saying that unless the phone has the latest update they could not answer anything about the phones operation.
