    I'm currently working on installing my own custom kernel for the Burst so i will keep updates on how that goes and when it will be ready as a flashable .zip package. So far i have foumd the stock kernel pieces wbich now just need to be rebuilt and package into a working kernel with root injected. Im using Sourcery G+ + Lite to build my kernel with the toolchain. If any developers could step forward and help me with this, it would be vreatly appreciated. I have the Toolchain and the kernel.gz file on hand, if anyone is interested in taking a swing at it with me, reply here or drop me a PM.

    Awesome! I've been checking regularly to see if there would be a root. Any idea on when you might release this for use?

    I wasn't sure whether or not to start a new thread on this. I tried to follow the root guide i can connect fine thru PcSuite. So I assume drivers are installed correct. I get to the point where the bootloader loads and I get the fastboot boot screen at that point it tries to install drivers and cant find any. I have to pull battery to reset the phone because its locked at that point. Any ideas anyone else encounter this? Thanks
