eFuse in Motorola Droid X
With the IT press getting hold of information regarding the Droid X (Slashdot story here
) I thought I'd start a thread regarding this significant find.
As of posting, this is not confirmed. There's no credible source for this information yet, just a community hacker like most of us. If anyone finds better sourced information, post it here.
Mods: Might want to sticky this one
From the /. article:
"If the eFuse failes to verify this information then the eFuse receives a command to "blow the fuse" or "trip the fuse". This results in the booting process becoming corrupted and resulting in a permanent bricking of the Phone. This FailSafe is activated anytime the bootloader is tampered with or any of the above three parts of the phone has been tampered with."
I understand there have been threads about this already, but they've moved down the rankings. Lots of people will be looking for information on this topic, and there doesn't seem to be any. A single thread for discussion and information posting seemed appropriate.
