The Motorola(r) sholes platform uses a trusted bootloader environment. Signatures are stored as part of the CDT stored on the NAND flash. mbmloader verifies the signature on mbm before passing control. mbm verifies all other signatures before allowing the device to boot.

There is a vulnerability in the way that Motorola generated the signatures on the sections stored in the CDT. This vulnerability is very simple. Like on the PlayStation 3, Motorola forgot to add a random value to the signature in order to mask the private key. This allowed the private key and initialization vector to be cracked.

Just noticed this on the site he posted... All I have to say is WOW.. Great Great news! It seems so simple in his words but what a break through for DX users..

Why does Moto care if their android phones have a locked bootloader? I don't see a benefit from it, and I don't see how it hurts them to have unlocked devices like the OG Droid. Infact, if anything the sold a boatload of the OG Droids. Wouldn't the carriers be the one concerned if the devices on their network are unlocked running wifi tether and stuff. I just don't get why Moto gives a crap.

the round we get note are always based on a oe rom. With an unlocked loader we can run full custom built roms like bugles breast and cm. Also we are side loading clock work but now we will be able to replace the oe recovery with clock work. Lady bit not least, we can ruin modified kernels

There really is no need to take updates any more. Gingy was a maybe for the X. Now?? P3 still rocks his X so we'll see a gingy port soon. See ya Moto updates!!

Testify. The only time I've ever sbf'd was to get the OTA Froyo update– the OTA won't even work with a non-stock ROM. Maybe Moto could come up with some sneaky method of reflashing your ROM over the network, deleting all your info or just bricking the phone, but that seems a little bit cataclysmically stupid from a business standpoint, "Buy our phone! We might not trash it! (But then again...)".

It will be nice not having to sbf to upgrade in the future. Maybe we'll get letter updates at a more reasonable pace from P3 et. al. I hope the Google Cops don't bust anyone's kneecaps.

Wow this is great news, I got mine in November and it was my first smartphone and at the time I didn't know about root and didn't know the phone was getting close to eol. Well after rooting all the great hacking stuff involved with it, I was worrying dang I only got to see one update and it has to make it two years.. but with this awesome news who cares, now starts the real fun.. Moto's probably going ape $#%&

No doubt.. Imagine if Dell started putting out PC's that were loaded with bloatware that you couldnt remove and tried to lock you out from making any changes. Retarded!!

I was gonna say the same thing. What other product comes more restricted and bogged down than cellphones? Non tech savvy people are gonna use the preloaded programs, but any geek like myself will do what they want. Remember V Cast? Who in their right mind used that?! On my old motorola E815 OBEX was blocked, couldn't copy from sd card to phone so you couldn't use your own ring tones etc. Easy to get around that, but really annoying that the function is there but blocked.

I have a while to wait for an upgrade. But I really love my X. If it keeps on tickin' I'll use it for a long time to come. I would likely buy the new hot phone with my upgrade discount, leave it in the box, and put it up on eBay.

I didn't catch this the first time I read the tweets, but the codes are for signing the sbf's for rsd lite. Which, correct me if I'm wrong, means two things:

1) any os can be signed and flashed onto the x
2) it will now be impossible to brick our x's???

I'm going to wait before I start jumping up and down. Koush said earlier that these are encryption keys, not signing keys. Hope he's wrong!

Looking at the time line, these codes may have been in the hands of folks in-the-know for a couple of months. Wonder if we'll see something sooner rather than later ...

The key was not cracked....it was leaked.

Big difference.

True, but that was pretty much the only way it was ever going to happen. Doesn't really matter to me, it's not like stealing Milli Vanilli's Greatest Hits via torrent. No one is losing their money or taking money from someone else, and the consumer benefits. From where I'm texting it's six of one, half dozen of the other.

All I did was freeze updater 2.2.1 using titanium backup pro. Is that all I need to do if I don't want the ota update, if they release one? And can Verizon shut my service if I don't update? Fully customized roms and kernels... im drooling.

I'm extremely interested in that as well. Also Fabolous, Drod, and others. They've all been handcuffed with a stock kernel - I can't wait to see what they bring to the table.

Frozen is frozen, as in inactive. Incommunicado. And I imagine Verizon doesn't give... ahem... care one bit if we get moto's update.

You're right or course, but I had a D1 that was rooted...still do, and it rocked being able to make changes to the kernel...to do that on the X...to rock all the possible ROM variations...this phone could last me for a couple years. :-)

I actually just installed the twitter app for the first time ever so I can follow some of the dev's on this thing. Of course, something's up with the profile pages. They won't load so I can't follow them. I might actually have to get on my PC!
