I've only skimmed through the logs, so have probably missed a lot of stuff, but it sounds to me like they've managed to write to the eMMC, but still have a load of work to make it easy/repeatable.

If anyone doesn't want to wade through the whole log, skip to 12:03.

Big high five to all those who did the dirty work to make this happen.

my question is that, did the source code released by HTC had a big play in this accomplishment?

If so, I think we can give a tip of the hats to HTC as well...
Just saying..

No way because scotty and half the devs from #g2root already reverse engineered it 2 days before the code was released.
