The beauty of the San Fran was you started it all off with your kitchen and it snow balled form there, only popping back when things went a bit quiet. I think I may have acted too soon, especially seeing the S3 on a £24 p/m contract.

I haven't looked into hacking phones as there has been more talented people like yourself. Is there no way of using the micro sd to find a way in or using a usb like the PS3

.

Believe me I'm working on every angle possible. ;-)

Do you think emailing Intel/ orange and asking them will help?

I think if we could get an official stance on the bootloader, that could help.

Well that's very interesting...pay day is getting closer and i'm still umming and ahhing about getting this. I probably still will as looking at even second hand devices nothing comes close to this in the price range. Not with a 4" screen, NFC and 1gb rom anyway.

Yup, you can't really hope for a similarily specced device at this pricepoint (not if you are hell-bent on NFC and more than WVGA that is) - Nexus S would be my second best, but is two generations behind in terms of CPU.

As for the Intel x86-64 vulnerability - IF it exists in Medfield platform (and I don't see why it wouldn't) it may be somewhat useful, since I guess it would have to be patched on kernel level in case of a phone. But even if someone will exploit it to obtain priviledged access, they still have to actually know *how* use that for unlocking the bootloader/allowing unsigned packages to be flashed.

Apparently it was patched in the Linux Kernel in 2006!

Surely whether they recommend it or not doesn't answer the question, what you do at your own risk with your device is up to you.

Paul,

Just had a look at your earlier tweet. Am I right in assuming that Orange have confirmed that the bootloader is locked or have they been their usual useful self and not bothered responding yet?

Thanks

Eh...?

?

I'd say to anyone that can afford an S3 to go for that over the SD anyday! Why would anyone need to ask that?

Yeah, the SD is good but the S3 is miles better. Don't quite understand the logic there tbh.

The logic was it's £16 a month cheaper, but not anymore it's only £5.50 cheaper.

Ergo it's going back

I'm detemined I/we can crack this. If I get one lent/donated I'll try my best, and even if I have to save up for one, I'll try my best. Regardless of what is seen as "insurmountable", I have faith that many minds lighten the load, and since this is going to be SUCH a prolific device, I am only looking to spend my free time (that's 99% right now) on doing this, for the benefit of ALL.

I won't let go of this - not in a stubborn manner, but because NOTHING is impossible, and because I have faith in myself and you good folks :D

:D yay!
