I just saw this thread, which implies that we have an exploit for the bootloader. Can someone link me?

I don't believe we have a bootloader exploit, that I think is just a different system image using Amazon's stock kernel. The bootloader only checks the recovery and kernel bootimg signatures, not the system partition so threw no need forms exploit if I understand this correctly. Though I did read a post in there mentioning a safestrap/second bootloader.

Someone else in the thread was working on getting Cyanogenmod working on it too.
