Nice hack!

but I have no gut to try it, caused my Razr got no leaked fastboot files.

Thanks for your work kholk!

I know you warned that it's only work on stockrom... but, i even try on eclipse (XT910 EU razr) and it works , i booted up on custom kernel and have to set governor to on-demand. Pretty smooth but battery life is poor, maybe because of only one core running.

Anyway great work and thanks!

The battery life is poor due to lack of deep sleep when running the new kernel :(
Hope that kholk will polish it a bit more :)

Sent from a phone with a locked bootloader....

I just wondered - could anyone explain me why there is a possibility that the second core will never work? - what is the difference between running one or two cores from the kexec's point of view? what seems to be the complication?

if i recall, it's because the CPU made a check at boot with something like Efuse.
And with bypass it can't check so it's in safemode with only one core.

But kholk will be more clear than me

im asking because i was curious and ran this on my atrix two while watching the video. everything went as it should but after the reboot my kernel isnt the same as in the video. so did it just not work?
