    Any news regarding kexec ROMs?
    I see dhacker posting code check-ins on Twitter, but haven't heard of any finished ROMs yet. I'm itching to finally flash something radical on my Bionic. :D

    I know that Hashcode is still working on it, but I believe that he is having some problems with the files on his domain. As I recall, the Bionic (as with other Moto devices he is working on) is nowhere near feature complete.

    Anyway, the best way to find out the whens is to follow @hashcode0f on twitter:


    (You can read through his recent posts to see info about the Bionic.)

    Essentially everything is working, except for the camera (which includes the flash as well). There are a few stability bugs still under work, but they're moving slowly but surely.

    I've been following the changes closely (I get SMS messages everytime there's a commit) as well as pulling the repos to do test builds for any breakthroughs that they don't officially announce.

    The most recent time I built the code, specifically the CM10 build, the setup utility would crash, so no dice there.

    There are a lot of different codebases, devices, etc that they are trying to develop for simultaneously, so it is somewhat slow. Thankfully the devices are similar enough in archetecture that porting between the two isn't too hard, but takes time nevertheless.
