Default [Project Cheesecake] Need YOUR help!

Background:
Yes it's true, Motorola has every OTA, every non-accepted OTA, and every non-release OTA and sbf sitting on a sever. Special Motorola employees get access to these, even on their phones through the access of the blur cloud. There are 19 servers.

The Goal:
Project Cheesecake was a success on finding a few dev builds for the Defy, Atrix, and Photon which lead to an unlocked bootloader on these devices. There is bound to be something on ONE of these servers, and eventually we'll strike gold and find an unlock. Just takes checking everyday.

How you can help:
Check the servers every change you get! Every phone is a little different, plus keep in mind these are ftp servers, so you might get lucky when you do your scan and you might catch something someone else didn't see before; or you might find something that was uploaded, and then later deleted. Wifi is recommended (but not required) when scanning the servers.

Prerequisites:
You need to use Root Explorer or another file manager with root permissions, because when you find an update, it's going to put it in /cache and you need to copy it from there to the sd card.

Please be on stock 2.3.5 (1.3.412) or 2.3.4 OTA. If you have deleted stuff or are running a custom rom or something, you will need to sbf for this to work.

Getting Started:
1)You need to be on stock latest OTA!!
2) WIPE DATA AND CACHE!!!!

1. Okay, so, download THIS APP RIGHT HERE. Edit: Updated link ~ 0vermind

2. Install the app on your phone.

3. Open the app. Click the first button.

4. Reboot.

5. Open app, click second button. Select a server. QA And Staging servers seem most common for updates, but we need to check them all. The default is in Production -> master-blur.whatever.com if you need to get back to it.

6. now click third button in app to check for update. click setup (the moto account thing is bs). Now if it gives you a wifi error, that means the server is down that you chose. If the server is up it will check for an update.

7. If that didn't work, select a new server with button 2, and then check again with button 3.

8. Any comments in this post about the ghettoness or difficulty of scrolling in my app will result in replies including but not limited to A) Slander, B) flaming, and C) death. Try to keep the thread pretty on topic to cheesecake method and other info. I know my app can be refined, jcase has been giving me some tips on streamlining my programming and su permission reduction, but it does good stuff, don't worry. It even remounts system as RO when it uses it.
The app does Scroll! It's just a bit tricky! -- I have found that if I longpress an item while scrolling up, it works better.

Thanks for participating!

Default Update Found

Heyo,

I found one update using Froyo in server 'master-qa3.blurdev.com'. The update seems to be weird. The update on the screen was reported to be '1.3.231.en.us' but the update zip was labeled '1.2.148.en.us' which is the same name as the leaked GB OTA update zip. Nonetheless, this is an interesting development.

Please PM me for the file. I don't want people who don't know what they are doing to abuse it.

I'll continue searching through the server list for any others.

Just saw this post and decided to pop in. Great job starting a Cheesecake for your phone =) Hopefully yes, people will be sending me more files to check. I have made a list of files that I've already checked for Bootloader unlock over at the Pudding thread (shameless plug).
Projects:
Pudding - Bootloader Unlocks
Atrix: Atrix Pudding
Photon: Photon Pudding

Default Maybe next time...

Yeah. I found two and I gave both of those to the2dcour. There doesn't seem to be a bootloader unlock in both files.

The two I found is when you are in Froyo and in these servers:
master-qa3.blurdev.com - 1.3.231.en.us
master-sdc1.svcmot.com - 1.3.232.en.us
master-blur.svcmot.com - 1.3.232.en.us

After taking a nap and returning the my phone back to normal, it seems like 1.3.232.en.us is the same as the last OTA version/the version that P3droid rooted. It doesn't seem to be a special "Dev" version with that special pudding.

Yeah the simpsons servers and both bqa ones didn't allow you to register.

If anyone still wants to take a look, let me know. You can get the mediafire links from me if you PM me.

My thought so far is that when the Atrix leak was found, Moto was at least thinking about unlocking the bootloader for the Atrix and might have been experimenting with the bootloader when the leak was made. I dunno if we are going to catch a bootloader unlock for the DX2 until Moto makes a serious consideration for unlocking the DX2 with their devs.

With that said, I think this was very successful from an execution standpoint and we need to keep up with regularly checking the servers for update files. I say we should pick random times in checking (not just on a Sat. Morning) and vary it up between location (east coast v. west coast) and Froyo/GB base update.

My only thing is that it took me nearly 5 hours to search through all of the servers after all of the wiping cache and going through Froyo's slow factory reset screens so I hope we can really get a few people dedicated for one or two hours and divide it up.

I wonder what the difference is between 231 and 232. And yeah definitely, as far as I know Moto did promise they would be unlocking all their phones, or at least the ones that came out this year..
