    yall should know by now that the GREAT djrbliss, has ported Loki to the Motion, and my sister says he is great dancer

    so we all owe him our gratitude, and donations if you can, http://goo.gl/zBGb0
    so that he can buy some new bread gloves


    for those that are just tuning in, this is what I know so far

    we can boot from custom kernels and recoveries with lok files


    we still have some major issues to address

    1. data partition gets wiped when booting into recovery

    there is code in the aboot file that will wipe you data partition if you boot into recovery, it does not matter which recovery you are using - stock, cwm, twrp, none

    even if you mod the recovery.c to ignore the bootloader control block (BCB) (misc partition) it still wipes data, even if you zero out the recovery partition it wipes data

    this function is not in the rom, cause if you have cm10 installed, same thing

    it may be in the kernel source, but i doubt it

    i think it is the aboot, here is why

    if you install the LG Spirit aboot and a .lok recovery for the LG Spirit, this does not happen

    problem is you can NOT boot into recovery from a powered off state like you can with the motion by hold power and vol down, it just does not work, the screen gets all messed up, and it does not respond to the keys, but adb reboot recovery will go into recovery, and some things will work

    so this is what i think we need, and I probably will not be the one that makes it

    a boot menu

    we need to boot from the "BOOT" partition, and have it load a boot menu that gives a choice between, Android, recovery, boot from SD, options, defaults, etc. etc.

    SO DO IT

    another issues we have is

    our data partition is encrypted, and can not be mounted from recovery

    we either need to disable the encryption, or figure out how to load an encrypted partition from recovery
