Alright guys, you know what this is. Just like the title says, first person to fully unlock or create a flashable patched bootloader (similar to what was done with the HTC ThunderBolt before HTC announced their own unlock tool) that can allow to flash custom kernels, custom recovery, etc... straight from ODIN gets the bounty. I will start the bounty and please feel free to add your donations.

Please note: No direct PM's will be accepted. Only posts in this thread will added to the bounty list. No exceptions.

i'll put $10 in but think it might be hard to judge who the money should go to since we have a bunch of people working together to make this happen

maybe that individual would be kind enough to split it as i think collaborative effort is what's going to get it done.

Just to reiterate, the bounty will go to one individual (first to make the post) but if they worked as part of a team, it will be up to the team to come to an agreement on how to split it.

$10 from me. I don't usually do these but if it would incentivize certain mad scientists to crack open our phones then so be it.

Sent from my Droid Incredible using the XDA app.

I see someone implemented the bounty idea I had posted last night. I not sure if this is a result of it but you beat me to the punch. You can count me in for 20.
