    It’s an overlay, the 1MB is the difference between vanilla and BLUR GB.

    i got into my bootloader by holding both volup/down and then the power.some times it doesnt work ( as in the vol buttons dop/down)but just restart the phone and try a cuple of times then you can get into recovery. at least i could

    @TechDeft:disqus where are you… my roomate’s sister makes $82 an hour on the internet. She has been out of a job for 5 months but last month her income was $8103 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read about it on this web site http://ur1.ca/5hqa3

  • Dominick DeVito

    It would be quite amusing to see the Razr get ICS before the G-Nex is even released *sigh*

    • Anonymous

      Too bad we can’t load custom kernels because the bootloader is encrypted. I hope Moto leaks the keys for this one; maybe with El Goog as their head next year.

  • Jamie

    I bet there’s nothing on the bootloader anywhere to be found

  • Tnuts22

    Anybody know if u can use the camera app on other motor phones?

  • Sp4rxx

    So with this now being available, are there people that can make a stock image of the RAZR so when we root it and (God forbid) do something “bad” we can restore the phone back to stock again?

    Maybe I am mixing several things together in the question, but I will gladly root if I know I can bring it back to stock afterwards.

    Heck, if I knew programming, I would take a crack at it, but my brain can’t wrap around that subject.  I just don’t get it.

      Start here.

      I’m personally doing this myself.
      And can’t wait until I finish this class…and quite a few more…for free.
      Just to learn to be a (probably terrible) android dev.

      The class is fairly stimulating…and intuitive.
      I like it.

      And as far as returning to stock, you can do that with an SBF at any point…once one is released.
      I don’t think there is an SBF for the Razr yet, but I may be wrong.

      • Joshua Wehmeyer

        I’m doing that class too!  I love it!  It’s fantastic!  Scratch is a pretty fun little program to work with.  Can’t wait to get further along in the class.

    to date this is the best android phone I have used. (IMHO!)
    compared to nexus one, htc incredible, G2, samsung fascinate, nexus s, droid X,X2,2,3, LG dual core, 
    being in the business i have access to use these devices as they come out.

    next up is the new Nexus but from the looks of it there will be as many bugs as in the S.

    • TROLOLOL

      my galaxy nexus will be full of bugs once i install greedy spiders XD

    • Dominick DeVito

      where are you getting info on all these bugs you speak about? It was one bug, and it wouldn’t even apply to the LTE version – what else??

    I’m glad I can root and get bloatware off of this thing.

    • Trevor

      You can just hide the bloatware and never see it without root…

        but it still runs and uses memory.  you have to root and freeze it or delete in order to make it truly invisible

        • Anonymous

          Not really, games are uninstalled and the rest like intro vids aren’t really ever running so just hide them. Ok the IM app I put on the auto end list so it’s not running either. Right now I don’t have a single bloat app running and I havent bothered to root yet. It can be done.

      • Edwin M

        Uninstalling is way better though.

        • Anonymous

          alot of the bloatware apps are un-installable

            That’s why you root it so all that bloatware gets uninstalled by rooty goodness.

    Will this in any way help progression towards un-encrypting the bootloader?

      Most likely not.

        I’ve wondered why hasn’t someone with a pair of Radeon 6990′s just brute forced the encryption…..or used Amazon’s cloud.

        It’s just a thought. I’m in no way equipped in the brain department to begin to try but I know a thing or three. Seriously though 2 Radeon 6990′s and a rainbow table and let them churn away…..

        Well…that sucks.  Not terribly concerned with ROM’s at this point because the thing runs smooth as butter but still, I feel like any time they beat the bootloader it sends a message to VZW.(Whom I now view as the true enemy of open Android)

        • Stating El Obvious

          They’ve never beaten an encrypted bootloader and they never will.

            Well they have, but I suppose finding the keys is different than beating it.

          • Stating El Obvious

            Nope they never have.  They’ve unlocked locked bootloaders, but they’ve never unlocked encrypted bootloaders (Moto bootloaders).  And they never will.

            Ahhh, well that I didn’t know.  Never say never though, computer technology runs at a very fast pace.  No reason that developments in the darker side of encryption may not outstrip developments on the lighter side of things. 

          • Stating El Obvious

            No, you’re right.  I just find it hard to believe that it’s going to be Android devs who crack that type of encryption.  There are far more qualified people who are hired for the sole purpose of trying to crack 256bit encryption and they’ve never done it.  Not going to be some dude in his basement who does it…

          • Anonymous

            Or some dude with a sharpie marker that cracks the years of development on a cd that cannot be copied?

            It’s the garage/basement types that WILL make this happen. (strictly opinion of course)

          • Stating El Obvious

            LOL no chance in hell.  You’re not comprehending how much computing has to be done to do something like cracking 256bit encryption.  I’m sorry, but unless the basement dev lives in the basement of the NSA, it’s not happening.

            Who says they don’t? Do you really think that all of the hacked/cracked/reverse engineered fixes for things come from outside? No. I can personally attest to the fact that most of them come from the inside (or at least paid for from the inside).

            OMG. Why the hell am I even feeding this troll anyway? Nuff of this.

          • Anonymous

            i don’t think he’s trolling in this case dude.  i agree, cracking today’s encryption is, for lack of a better word, impossible.  sure, computing power gets better and better.. but so does/can encryption.

          • Stating El Obvious

            I’m not trolling, I’m having a discussion.  You’re not understanding what I’m saying and getting upset for some reason.  When I say “basement dev” I’m talking about some Android ROM creator who wants to run ICS on his phone.  That dude is NOT going to crack 256bit encryption no matter how badly you want him to.  If you think that, then you’re not a troll, but a sheep.

            Of course agencies hire people to try to crack these things.  That’s what I said already.  Ethical hacking is a huge industry, and they are given literally boundless and endless resources to try to do it.  And they haven’t done it.  The reason is because it’s not as simple as just guessing the right keys.  

            OMG.  I don’t know why I’m feeding this sheep anyway.  Nuff of this.

            My apologies for getting all butt hurt.

            I don’t know why I throw my hands up in a tizzy fit when people don’t listen to what I have to say. I guess I just feel like I’m wasting my breath. I wasn’t talking about an alt.2600 hacker.

            I was referring to the guy that works for the developing company (in their basement). That’s what I mean by “coming from the inside”. It exists – I see it. I work for a tech company that deals with leaks and security breaches on a daily basis. Blah.

            I have seen/worked with companies on development of higher end encryption algorithms. I have worked beside those in charge of testing/breaking said algorithms.I’ve debunked so-called “security” measures that were considered secure, simply for the fun of it. So to say that it CANNOT be done? I simply cannot (nor will I) believe.

            To be honest, the whole discussion is truly an opinion anyway. Is it not?

            Anyway – Mainly I just wanted to drop an apology for throwing out the “troll” comment.

          • Stating El Obvious

            No problem, maybe I wasn’t clear.  I was simply talking about people who think that Android devs sitting at home with a Dell laptop are gonna do it.  I have no doubt that a dev, commissioned by an agency to do something like this, can try to attempt to do it.  And I also know 100% that agencies look for people like this.  Whether or not they let them sit at home while trying something like cracking 256bit encryption is debatable (not really…it doesn’t happen).  

            Either way, it’s probably an “opinion” in that I think it can’t be done (at least not with tech today) and you think it can, but it is a fact that no one has come remotely close and these are people who have the type of cutting edge tech available to them that the mainstream can’t even comprehend.

          • Anonymous

            It’s a fact that I cannot do it. That much is clear.

            In the 20+ years in the tech field, I’ve just seen so many people say “it cant be done”. 

            Only to turn around and (as someone mentioned earlier) say – “ok… well, how about this then?”.

            And I know that 20 years isn’t forever. It’s a blink in the tech world (a long blink – but still) – so please don’t think that I try to think that I “know it all” because I know that I don’t.

            But I do remember when 128 bit encryption was enough to keep anyone away (blowfish anyone?). That was less than 10 years ago. Since upgraded to 256 bit due to the fact that it didn’t keep everyone away. I feel it will be done. And then you will see 512 bit encryption. It’s a game of cat and mouse. Right now, there are a lot of cats chasing that mouse. But just as many mice running from the cat as well.

            But yes. You are right – there is no one in my neighborhood that could do it. And if someone was commissioned (and you can be sure that there are) to do it, they would be watched like a hawk.

            There will come a time when the hardware/software developers simply say “To hell with it.. Let them play”. We’ve seen it with nearly all of the types of protection necessary in the past. Too much money spent trying to keep people from doing it. Most just finally understood that and moved on to just improving the actual product.

            Cassette Tape? (use scotch tape)Audio CD? (use a sharpie)
            Network? (use a cable)Software CD? (use a mounted drive)
            DRM? DVD? Blu-Ray? (use a bigger drive)

            Truth is, they don’t even need to crack the encryption to get around it. (Even if it does prove itself to be impossible to do.) Someone somewhere will figure out a workaround. 

            I’m quite wordy. Sorry about that too. I have often figured that starting a blog entitled “quotes of an opinionated bastard” would be a good thing for me to do.

          • Stating El Obvious

            Agreed 100%.  Saying “never” was a mistake, because if it was created it can be undone.  ”When” is the question, and that’s something that I don’t see happening anytime soon, at least not in my lifetime.  

            If you do create that blog, pass me the URL, I would definitely read it LOL

            It will be some dude in the basement that does it eventually.  The question is whether or not it will be done before a more powerful form of encryption is made real world ready.

          • Anonymous

            That’s what they’ve said about all the “dudes in their basement.”

            I’m not saying someone in their basement will crack a 256bit encryption, but it’s possible and usually it’s the people who have no life, no morals and no purpose other than because they wanted to try and see if they could do it. 

            I’ve known real hackers all my life, I even did a lot when I was younger, many of them will work on something until their life falls apart around them.  Find the right person, they’ll find a way.  If it can be created, it can be disassembled. 

          • Stating El Obvious

            I don’t know how to make my point clearer.  Cracking encryption is nowhere in the same league as “hacking a website!”  You need tons of capital, tons of resources and tons of computing power.  When I say “basement dev” I’m talking about how some people here think that some Android developer is going to suddenly crack a bootloader using his one PC.  It’s not happening, and only someone highly uninformed would think that someone like that could do it.

          • Anonymous

            You’re assuming that no private citizen has the kind of computing power that is capable of deciphering a 256bit encryption, which is terribly untrue. 

            Both my uncle and aunt work for the Nasa division in DC, one was a mechanical engineer for the Mars Rover, the other a software engineer for many satellites.  Let’s just say, when I go to their house, I enjoy doing some work with their computers.

            As I said, find the right person and anything is possible.

          • Stating El Obvious

            LOL, ok man.  If your uncle and aunt have whole mainframes in their house capable of doing quadrillions of calculations per minute, then yes I misspoke…somehow I doubt that’s the case though.

            That’s just a challenge. :) Never say never.

            “They will never be able to pirate this software”
            “They will never hack into …”

            All it takes is the right guy with the right friends (or access to the right stuff).
            It’s just a challenge that is waiting to happen. Never say never. Not in the world we live in today, with the abundance of people willing to give up their lives to give it a try.

            And I of course mean that with the utmost respect for people that do give up their lives to give it a try. I’m one of em. Not on the level to decrypt bootloaders, but still.

            you have no idea the kind of math problems today’s encryption is based on.  it would take like all of the computing power in the world working simultaneously for decades or more to crack it.  no joke.

            10 years ago, I would have believed you. But it’s not 10 years ago. It’s today.

            touche.  those math problems are still huge, though.

          • Stating El Obvious

            I don’t know man.  There is an algorithm to the encryption.  That’s certain.  But the algorithm is so complex to the point that I don’t believe modern computing can even begin to approach figuring it out.  They haven’t even cracked 128bit encryption, so 256 is not happening any time (year, decade, millenia) soon.  

            The PS3 crack btw was a non-random encryption method (essentially a flaw in the algorithm).  With a well defined 256bit encryption protocol, you have better odds of winning the lottery everyday for 10 years, then cracking it…

          • Stating El Obvious

            Exactly.  What Geohot did was amazing because of how “simple” it was (relatively speaking).  But the true fault lies in Sony’s poor encryption algorithm.  It wasn’t a true crack.

          • Stating El Obvious

            You are right, never say never.  But like I said, there are ethical hacker jobs out there who are told to try to crack these things, with far more resources, far more computing power, far more capital who haven’t done it.  It may be done at some point, but it’s not going to be an Android dev who does it.
