One of of the best Droid developers in the game, Stephen Bird, recently had a chance to dig into the Droid X system dump and confirmed what many of us had feared. Yes, that’s right, the Droid X is locked down Motorola Milestone style, locked bootloader and all. In fact, it is the same encryption that is locking the Droid X bootloader that is locking the Motorola Milestone bootloader.
We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?
So, what exactly does this mean? Well, basically there is a good chance that developers will get root access, but custom ROMs will be damn near impossible. Milestone developers have been hacking the encryption for over 6 months now and have come up with very little. Custom ROMs probably will not happen I am sorry to say.
As depressing news as this is, are you still going to buy the Droid X? Would you buy a phone you couldn’t root?
