    I see numbers and letters man.
    I'm guessing an update or downgrade of some kind?

    The alterbative link is the same firmware as VS870 b firmware. It's just another link in case the other one dies.

    Am I right?

    It's an alternative, not duplicate...

    Why do you want those? L9 has an unlocked bootloader....

    Just wanted to investigate something for the motion. No biggie though since I don't own a motion.

    Not really. We already have fully working recoveries. Both PG and I each made touch versions.

    I've been trying to figure out why it doesn't work on the motion. I sort of had a hunch, but that's all it is for now.

    Out of curiosity, how difficult would it be to port CyanogenMod to the Lucid 2?

    Two things... The original links posted at the top redirect me to "access restricted" page.
    Also, sammyz's link obviously doesn't download properly... Every browser i use starts the download saying "20 minutes remaining" then just jumps to finished... The file ends up being only 4Mb.
    There is (Nearly) no working links to recover this phone at the moment...
    Took me more time to find a working link than it did to recover the phone...
