    I need someone to test my kernels for this device. I dont own the phone but I'm sure you guys are desperate for some dev'in :p Right now I have an insecure kernel made (full adb access) which means alot more is on the way. I need someone either with CWM recovery or someone who knows how to use "dd". But just ahead of time, and anytime, before flashing anything...MAKE A BACKUP!!!!

    Just full adb access, a little something as a proof-of-concept...I plan on adding more to the kernel over time (next few days)
    But does adb remount work?

    Honestly I'm not sure what you mean. But I'm sure I can figure it out. You mean fastboot flash the boot.img?

    Well yeah, I forgot you have faatboot, but instead of fastboot flash, do fastboot boot <boot.img>
    I'm used to devices without fastnoot :p

    Is this the code I use for Terminal Emulator?
    I am guessing it won't install from Recovery Mode.
