This is indeed very bad news for us. And it means that the Photon Q will be dropped out from CyanogenMod moto_msm8960 unified builds sooner or later. The switch to builds that will require the KitKat bootloader and other proprietary parts of the phone firmware updated to KK level will happen...

Despite that, there's been some 3.4 kernel progress

There's still a lot of stuff to be fixed, but it boots with 3.4 kernel now and the display works at least.

Well, I spose if we can no longer be a part of the moto_msm8960 build, we can at least have our own bleeding edge stuff

Great work.

The KK bootloader differs only on devtree handling as far as I know (it's not like Moto X / Droid MAXX bootloader). Not even the bootloader version is changed on the other phones. I myself would be more worried about baseband.
PRIVATE MESSAGES regarding firmwares / support will NOT BE ANSWERED!

Motorola Photon Q
Bootloader: 10.9B
Firmware: CM 11.0

Motorola Droid MAXX
Bootloader: 30.B0
Firmware: Stock 4.4

Acer Iconia A500
Bootloader: V9 0.03.14-MUL (dualboot + recovery + extfs boot + bootmenu)
Android: TegraOwnders JB-MR1 v13
LUbuntu: 13.04


2nd-init for Locked Bootloaders

Acer Iconia A500 / A501 Patched Bootloader Thread

Death for the best (and presumably the last, not counting the F3Q) of QWERTY Android phones. Dammit, has QWERTY become such a niche market that no manufacturer wants to even refresh it? No wonder I sold my PQ last month.
