I know I for one would gladly donate some cash and help with testing a CM7 flash and subsequent nightlies for this phone. Picking it up tomorrow. I know for a fact that the people that have it early and have rooted are unable to tether without the plan for it. Also, people who have the new droid 2 gingerbread update are unable to do the same without having a custom ROM like CM running on it. Who else is interested in making this happen for the Bionic??

I know I am interested. Dev's will get it done gradually. Let's just hope the bootloader can be unlocked like the atrix/photon. Not sure if anyone has tried, but it would be awesome. I am just beating around the bush trying to decide if I want to get it or not... :/

You should get a recovery aka CWM before we talk about CM

CM on the Bionic is going to face the same uphill battle that it did for the Mecha. The issue is the RIL for the LTE radio. Given that this is a whole new chipset/radio combo I am extremely doubtful that you will see any serious CM work on this. At least not until ICS source is released which will contain the LTE RIL (Assuming of course that the rumors about the Prime shipping with LTE pan out).

The skin on the Bionic is not bad. I especially like the Car Dock mode. I was a huge fan of CM7 on my thunderbolt because I detest Sense, but I can definitely live with the moto build.

Yeah, honestly this version of blur and especially gingerbread are really not too bad. I have not had nearly as many issues with bugginess, lagging or random restarts/blackouts as I did with my droid 2 before it was rooted. The only thing that sucks really is inability to tether.

I won't br flashing from stock unless hdmi mirror mode is gonna work on custom roms. Gonna be a deal breaker for this phone.
