Hi WinSuk!

Thanks for reply and for your good work here!...

Well, I did the whole process and everything works except the 3g know issue and the GPS that I never was able even to turn on it by menu, widget, chage settings and none gps app also wake up it or make it works... I primary use it for waze that I am using since so,long time ago, so I was familiar with the delay in catch up signal....

That is the reason because I was in beleive that is broken in this rom, so I surprised that You have it working fine.... Now I wonder about what could be a possible trick/tip to reset/make it works....

By other side... the sources that Laidaxin made available are not usefull for continue the fixing of this rom?...

Thanks again and best regards!

Don't really know then :-\

The kernel is what runs everything, including the rom..
We can't replace it with Motorola's locked bootloader, but we can learn how it works & build modules for use in the rom with the kernel source
Currently only Motorola has access to it, which is a violation of the GPL.

I wish this was as simple to install as laidaxin explains in the OP. The boot loader installation seems to be the tricky part. Afaik, there are a few that sometimes work depending on different circumstances. I'm afraid of bricking my flipside, but I want gingerbread.

Won't someone make this easier for those of us who can't take such a risk? A better guide perhaps?

Edit: Got it working. This rom breathed new life into the flipside. But alas there's still no 3g :/
Why don't we all petition for motorola to unlock the bootloader?

Default Languages

I know this phone is american, but please don't remove the languages...
For example, I use my Flipside in Hungary which I bought on eBay...

I asked for kernel source, not the boot loader...

For anyone interested, I tried again but a different way and got a reply... based on the other threads asking the same thing (for other devices), they release the source a few weeks after it's asked for
http://sourceforge.net/motorola/disc...read/cd4e3368/

As for the boot loader, many people have petitioned/asked for them to be unlocked, and Motorola said they would - except there's only the Xoom (which is more or less a Google device) and a special version of the Droid RAZR unlockable.
Maybe there will be hope with Google taking over (every Google device is made to be unlockable without any hacks/exploits)

Default aaaaaand bricked :/

Well i can only hope they release it. I just bricked my flipside. It's stuck in an endless boot loop and i cant get rsd lite to flash any sbf files because as soon as i plug it into the pc while in the bootloader menu, the flipside switches off and wont turn on until i plug it into the charger which then promptly resumes the boot loop. FML.

It sucks down power like crazy for no reason in the boot loader.. faster then a PC can charge it from my experience. Try charging it (while off) until it's full (or when you think it's full) and try again
