    My guess is that birdman is bricking his phone quite a bit and is resorting to flashing the SBF to give it another go....Just a 100% pure guess, hehe

    If anyone is going to crack this pesky little e-fuse, it's going to be our man Birdman.

    His most recent tweet (from early this morning) simply says "so...damn frustrated...." so that in combination with the previous sbf tweet probably indicates he is having problems, no? Hmmm... I hope that's not a bad sign...

    In a house, near some mountains.
    that is how i took it when i read it.

    the way i figure it... if birdman keeps flashing his dx, then he must be working on something pretty sweet that it keeps bricking the phone.

    Download twitter or use the website, and when you're signed it, just search for _mrbirdman_ - there will be a button to follow him.

    Go to ^^ this link in your browser once you're signed in and hit the follow button.
    OR
    If you're using a twitter client such as Seesmic or Twidroyd,
    Do a search for _mrbirdman_ then hit follow.
    His tweets are usually found retweeted on AllDroid. (Couldn't hurt to follow either ;) )
    Don't forget to follow Phandroid :D
