aliasxerog recently posted this over at the droid forums.. "I've been a linux kernel developer for years and recently got a Droid X. The first thing I did was root it and install a pretty unraped froyo ROM I found these forums. I really, really want to install cyanogenmod on the phone because it would be pretty sweet. My idea consists of booting up in to the standard kernel and having a custom init to use kexec(8) to bootstrap the custom kernel. This would completely bypass the whole locked-crazy-omg-efuse-killer thing. Even if the standard kernel doesn't have kexec(8) enabled you can still execute a linux kernel because it is a relocatable elf on most systems. The whole setup isn't ideal but it could get custom kernels running until there is a better solution. EDIT: If the are any android devs that know the system inside and out I would absolutely love your help." "Ok so here's how I want to do this thing. Ideally I don't want to have to mess with anything that will make a phone possibly bricked. So that being said I was thinking possibly a userspace fix ala create a new init. The current init is fired up by the kernel and loads all of your crap that you want running. I want to add a few features and such into the new init that will allow it to load a new kernel on boot. 1. Im going to add the ability to load up kernel modules so that we can load up a module with kexec and later the drivers for the radio hardware in the phone. 2. I also want to make init be able to also function normally so we only need one init. 3. I want to make it have some failsafe code in there to give you a working phone just in case the **** hits the fan. 4. I want to make this fully configurable by the user with a pretty interface that i'm totally not programming because my idea of a pretty interface is ncurses with colour. If you have any questions or comments you can post them here or on my twitter (@aliasxerog). I'm also usually on irc.hak5.org #hak5. If you want to help please please contact me as I would love the help." HERE! You can follow him @aliasxerog on twitter and if anyone can help him out please let him know. edit: he thinks he knows how to get the radio working with his method "Well with the radio thing you just have to compile up some kernel extensions. For it then use modprobe to get them in. I think the cdma drivers are kernel extensions."
