I quote:

Currently you are able to do the following with AndroPlatina:
1. Recovery Flasher
2. Any device unrooter ( not root)
3. Bootanimation change


Nice to see that people are searching for root still :)

I tried using universal androot, yeah I know, not going to work, call it an act of desperation :lol:
Anyway, it provided an sd log, which may or may not be some use.

Does anyone know how this device is selling in the real world?
Strikes me it wouldn't be a bad thing if Intel saw disappointing sales with this tight lock down & non-engagement with the hacking community. Might incentivise trying a different tack with subsequent devices.
I heard the first few weeks' sales were pretty good (whatever that means). Wondering how they've held up

Edit - did anyone attend the user experience / mugging session described in this linky? Any news to report back?

Many people made comparisons with HAG300 which at this price point atm (may change) and specs, this phone is more comparible to the Huawei Honor.
Although SD beats the Honor (just), Huawei provides an Unlock Bootloader password and to obtain this........Huawei > Home > Huawei Honor > Support > More Support (right side of page) > Unlock Bootloader.....................and fill in the form & accept agreement........and voila.

Beats the honor JUST :lol: It smashes it!
Although the honor is a decent device, I would surely get it as my second choice to the OSD.

I was wondering if anyone had looked into the ksplice and/or kexec route to getting a new kernel running?

Seeing as the San Diego is an x86 device, and can now be rooted... This would side-step the bootloader issue altogether.

ho!! so we could get cutom rom with this!

Edit : what I'm gonna say could be pretty stupid but I'm gonna say it anyway please correct me if i'm wrong. fibblesan said in an other thread that if we had unlocked bootloader, at this point we could get android 4.1 x86 code by intel, compile it and falsh it. I don't know if intel have a github or something, and if they made the 4.1 source code available but if they did, we could compile that with it's kernel and try to boot it with kexec right?

if the bootloader was unlocked then we can boot our own boot.img files with our own kernels. The kernel source that Motorola released for the RAZR i should work fine with some minor adjustments.

We the bootloader is locked so this might never happen.
