Default Developers even working on this phone?

Just curious if any roms or anything are being developed for the DX2. I have an upgrade available and the $50 off loyalty user discount, and I'm debating between this, the iPhone, or the Charge(Really don't want to pay 250 for a phone but MEH)...

Being as I have a D1 now, and am getting an Asus Transformer on Monday, I really don't need a Android phone so I'm leaning to the iPhone. The DX2 keeps drawing me back with its Tegra 2 >_>

As soon as we have an SBF development will start. Will the previous bootstrap method work if it is modified for our phone? Maybe.

Donations are not expected but always greatly appreciated. Thank you for supporting Eclipse Rom!

P3Droid confirmed TBH has plans for development of the X2 and D3 a few hours ago.

He also said they don't have a X2 yet, so no real time frame was given.

someone with a clue could just go ahead and try Edgan's 2nd init:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1109287

if someone dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p[1 to 17] of=/sdcard/dx2-blk0p[1 to 17] i can poke around, see if your init.rc has changed, etc. *.prop files and /proc/mounts or output of /bin/df -h would help. gitbrew.org would probably give you space to host.

can y'all root with gingerbreak? please don't try the above 'dd' command unless you know what you are doing. you'll need root anyway...

pretty sure your device is much like atrix but cdma, less ram, smaller emmc, no webtop or front facing camera. otherwise, a lot of atrix tricks might work for you, but we don't have a huge number of devs working on our phone either =(

It looks like they're labled 1-18 on the x2, I'll take a look after I get back from the gym.

Is there an atrix init.rc I could run a diff on?

1-18 is just like ours, but we have /webtop on p13, what do you have there? (p18 is our /sdcard and so would not be needed in a dump, nor would p16, our /data)

otherwise similar to: http://a-trix.net/wiki/index.php/Partitions ?

i've extracted atrix CG56 (boot.img) ramdisk and init.rc, attached to this post, please share your init.rc, *.prop, or just full system dump if you can.

whether Edgan's 2nd init hack will work (breaking in at mount_ext3.sh) depends on your particular init.rc and /system. also, we do not yet have a GUI bootmenu for atrix 2nd init. tenfar ported our CWM but i think others are getting the recovery built more or less direct from his git so you could port that somewhat easily.

if there is a translation of build.prop IDs to sbf filenames for your phone someone should detail that so the .sbf file can be pulled. (might be also depend on /default.prop from ramdisk) surely this is known by someone. otherwise a VZ employee should be kindly encouraged to leak it so you can dev safely!

Well thanks for all the answers, but I just read on Engadget that the Samsung GS2 is rumored to be coming to Verizon in July. Definitely saving for that.
