    Looks like 2 different things to me. CVPS is developing the Obsidian rom, while Birdman and others are apparently working on the bootloader.

    From their tweets its kinda implied that they are making some progress or have an approach that may work to hijack the boot process.

    Fun fact: you need to spoof ext3 filesystem headers when reformatting the X or you'll engage certificate checks on /system :D 11:40 PM Sep 14th via Twitter for Android

    i read that from cvpcs twitter.

    sounds interesting

    Birman's latest updates made it sound like he knows how to do it and has the files, but can't exactly find where they should go. I'm sure he (and others) will figure it out and we MAY have an unlocked bootloader soon.

    At that point I'm interested to see how many other kernel devs and customizers jump on the x that previously wrote it off and said they wouldn't be doing anything for it.

    I sure hope so, but I do truly believe it will happen. Now if at this point no one had made any progress still then I would be worried. Why couldn't of nenolod highlighted what birdman needs:D That would make it easier

    Totally agree with you, he knows exactly "where the car is parked", but is just standing idly by while birdman and many others look for it.
