Hey guys! I want to share a thought with you.

One of the best ways to expand the use of our devices is by being able to do what we wish to do with them. I hope to use my Asus Transformer for a long time. It's a phenomenal device with many options (as seen on SBKv1 devices with Ubuntu).

However, with SBKv2 devices, we seem to have hindered functionality and overall more caution. It isn't only about flashing custom ROMs and OSes. The fear of bricking a device is scarier for SBKv2 device since we do not have the means to use NVFlash.

So I want to propose an idea to you guys. How would you feel about organizing together as a community via petition/facebook posts/tweets to appeal to ASUS to release the Secure Boot Key? I feel as a community of tablet enthusiasts, we should allow our voices to be heard. It worked for the TF201, why not for us?

Edit 1:

Link to Petition

We now have a petition. Let's organize to try to find a good goal for number of signatures and date of petition

Edit 2:
The tentative date to tweet Asus is April 4th. Later tonight, I will post the various facebook and twitter pages of Asus, as well as other contact information

Need a twitter and facebook bomb.

I propose we do this on one day!! Within a few hours, so we need to make an announcement on what day/when to twitter/facebook bomb them with;

Releasing SBK2 and 3
Releasing the kernel source for ICS

It should be far enough away that a large crowd of XDAers can organize, if it occurs too soon then we won't have the numbers needed to make a point..

I am all for getting the SBK unlocked and the kernel source released but spamming is NOT the way to do it. I would suggest a petition or to contact asus directly. spamming their social networks which is just plain disrespectful
