I've just taken a look at the sources of the mtd driver in the kernel, but haven't actually found a lot that would be of interest to us. The actual communication with the NAND seems not to take place here. It's probably handled by an even lower level, perhaps some I/O layer that sits beneath, don't know. The kernel is simply too huge, this will turn into a search for a needle in the haystack.
Well, if there is no other way, and we have to pin it down, then we either have to look through the kernel or the radio. If we do the radio, and find secu_flag then we have a "pure" S-OFF, if we do the kernel, I suspect it will take longer and we will have a "patchwork" S-OFF. At least we will have S-OFF. But we also need to think timewise. Don't want to finish this when this phone is not sold anymore and when we are the only people left. By the way, Samsung Android phones have a "Download Mode". I've used it many times. Also, once you are in download mode, you use a GUI program called ODIN, like a RUU, it assists you in "downloading" the file to the phone and flashing it.

Well sooner or later it will be available for almost anything. They said they will support "all devices with a newer chipset than Google Nexus One". That would even include the WFS. I think the Nexus One is still on a QSDxxxx chip. The MSM7227 of the WFS is a real powerhorse against what the Nexus One is using lol!
In order to do either we need to be able to write to the nand so both will need us to **** with the kernal in the hope it works. Nbh what would we be looking for in general? We might have some luck if get a small army of us to go hunting through it.

The Nexus One's QSD8250 is much more powerful than MSM7227. Both have Adreno 200 graphics and are Snapdragon S1s but QSD has a Scorpion (Cortex A8) core with 1GHz native clock, vs MSM7227s ARM11 w 600MHz native clock. I wouldn't hold my breath for official CM9 on WFS sadly.
