    It provides a full workout the locked bootloader by allowing the device to ignore the signature checks required for a proper boot. This allows you to flash and boot custom recovery, kernels, and roms that have this patch.

    It's not unlocked, but there's a pretty good workaround.

    Its pretty much an unlocked bootloader without actually being unlocked if that makes sense. Hell, an actual custom recovery is possible along with custom kernels. No security checks, life just got that much easier for us with motions And spirits.

    Let's not get too far ahead.. Honestly I'd sit back and wait for the experts to do this and put together an easy tutorial. We still have to have a custom recovery built... You can then thank them and buy them a beverage of their choice.. But for now be sure to thank Mr. Rosenberg here's a link to his paypal

    I got 1.44 on my card. Damn straight it's going to him!

    EDIT: No, but I agree with you on that point. Let the experts do what they do best. You should only do this yourself if you know and accept the risks and wanna get your feet wet.

    Knowing me, I'm still gonna try, lol.

    Im thinking the files inside the "bin" folder are moved to /system/bin. And then the commands will work.
    Trying it now!

    Edit: tried it...and i failed. Multiple times. But trying again

    What i got by the way...

    app_27@android:/ $ loki_patch-linux-arm
    Usage: loki_patch-linux-arm [boot|recovery] [aboot.img] [in.img] [out.lok]
    x-arm recovery aboot.img cwm.img cwm.lok <

    [-] Failed to open aboot.img for reading.

    It was stated to be device specific. Unless I'm missing something? I see no Motion file on the github. I only see the spirit, and op g. From the readme on the git.
    "loki_flash" is a sample utility that can be used to flash a .lok image to an
    actual device. It will verify that the provided .lok image is safe to flash for
    a given target, and then perform the flashing if validation is successful. It
    is also possible to simply use "dd" to flash a .lok image directly to the boot
    or recovery partition, but using loki_flash is recommended in order to validate
    that the .lok matches the target device."
    So it looks for the target aka the specific phone.
    So unless you have the file for the motion it won't work.

    I see where it says its supported now, but does that mean he's got it up? Even if you got something to work we have no custom recovery besides the one we have, or kernel so why even risk anything at this point till we have these made?
