    While the bootloader will be locked you will still be able to root it. Our Moto phones also have a locked bootloader (except the D1). But we can still root and load custom Roms. The only thing that can't be done is loading a custom kernel.

    It would be better if it were not locked but it won't fully prevent you from enjoying the phone.
    The "ROM's" you can run on a locked bootloader are just glorified themes. To really get some nice custom ROM's with lots of added functionality you need a phone with an unlocked bootloader.

    Made the mistake on the X, won't happen again.

    Okay, so for us beginners does a locked bootloader mean that I can't install gingerbread (Android 2.3) on it? The Atrix is shipping with Froyo (Android 2.2).

    Thanks!

    Sorry for another post, but wanted to know if you can load out-of-market apps with the bootloader being locked.

    Thanks again.

    With the Atrix, by default no you can't. AT&T locks their phones down even more than other phone companies, so no sideloading on their phones without jumping through a few hurdles (if it is even possible).

    Other AT&T phones, have had methods to sideload apps, so... I would assume the Atrix will too. But only time will tell.

    For that, I'd say keep an eye on Sideload Android apps all you want with the Sideload Wonder Machine | Android Central . As popular as the Atrix likely will be (it really is a beastly phone), I don't doubt that it'll be updated to work with it, if the program doesn't already.
