I'm a relative newcomer to fiddling about with Android but a thought occurs.

Hardware wise both the San Diego and the Razr i share a processor and gpu, is there any chance that the bootloader could be the same also? I'm led to believe that the Razr i's bootloader has been unlocked, what are the chances of the same script working on the OSD?

Long shot I know, but anyone got any ideas?

Rickywyatt has tried and the fastboot commands don't work, for example, fastboot oem get_unlock_data does not work. Without that it cannot work :(

Gah! Right... back to the drawing board then. If anyone comes up with any ideas I would be happy to test them.

how about pulling the bootloader from the motorola and flashing it to the san diego? could that work? I guess it could easly brick the device too.

Good luck trying that, if you want a paperweight that is.

No they don't share the same bootloader. Different devices.

Does this device have a BIOS? If so, couldn't you extract the bios information and manipulate it as you would a PC bios?

Not enough developers have the Razr i either. The cost is too high and far easier to develop with an ARM device like the Razr M :(

Pricing on the N4 killed many sales of the razr i at 299 I would guess, that and fairly similar spec to osd at much less. Does look a lovely piece of kit though. Size is great for that screen size
