It is almost identical to the Defy, minus the search button and the better camera. That's why there's a lot more Defy Developers; the Defy has a MUCH, MUCH LARGER user base, which in turn leads to it having more Developers in the mix. We have a much smaller user base, so its only natural to have less Devs (well, only Quarx really) for the Bravo.
If you hexdump the bootloader from our 2.2.2 sbf and a Defy 2.2.2 sbf, they're IDENTICAL except for the CG\Efuse values and the file signature. I mean EXACTLY the same. The only differences are small hardware changes, eg our 3MP Green Lens vs the 5MP Green Lens.
While I'm at it, the Motorola Milestone2, Cliq 2, Defy, Bravo all have the same\similar hardware and we can all port from those devices; probably other phones as well. The Cliq 2 guys actually port Quarx's Defy CM7 like we used to. If you search Quarx2k on Google, its one of the first 5 links. I only know that because I forgot to add the .ru when seeing if new roms were out.
