Removing the signed status of the bootloader through an unlock would be a good solution. It would allow us to flash our own images and may even allow us to 'port' ROMs from the RAZR i.

I'd like this to happen but I'd also like to have the proper flashing tools fully working. Many tools have been found but nobody can get them working. I want them working because they will allow us to recover from bad flashes.

YUP, this is what i want ... we don't have to be dependent on Orange/xolo for updates. We can build CMs for our phone

hi,
i found this on XDA, it may help us to have CWM on the san diego. Even if i think the binaries from CMW are not fully runnable on x86.
We have to edit the step3.sh to map our partitions and the chargemon script to be able to boot CWM, and take charger binary from san diego.

My 2 cents

There was some news at CES from Intel about their phone platforms. Intel announced the Z2420 based Lexington platform, it appears to be a cheaper lower-performance version of the Z2460 based Medfield platform.

Lava are one of the companies that will be using Lexington. As they are almost the same platform I can't see why Intel, or Lava for that matter, would stop supporting Medfield, at least not until the Medfield replacement Merrifield is ready. Most of the effort to support Lexington would be shared with supporting Medfield.

Anyway it's not an announcement of ongoing support but I would be surprised if 4.0 really is the end of the line.

exactly... and not only that Intel Developer Site also has Jelly Bean Emulator Image for Developers... so sooner or later I am still optimistic that Medfield and (Xolo / SD) will get a Jelly Bean update soon

As long as you absolutely leave the stock recovery app in place then you may be able to recover from a non-booting kernel. But don't flash everything at once. I did that. It's not good.

Hmm, not had a look at the petition since signing it, pretty poor turnout. :(
