    Sorry if I'm a little dense, but what is an 'sbf' file? What does it contain?

    Yep....I hope they don't do us that way....

    I seen a post a while back that mentioned something about the 2.1 update may not be able to be exploited and develop a way to root it.....and that kind of worried me....cause I mean what if they made it that way? There's no reason why they couldn't...you know?

    The Milestone development is a bit disturbing. And the problem with thinking that well it won't affect me if the Droid goes this way because I am already rooted is that it could indirectly affect us on the development front. If the pool of rootable phone does not keep increasing, I am guessing that perhaps there will be less incentive for Dev's to get involved. Especially new ones. Perhaps the same could be said for app development, certainly apps that require root.

    I guess this could be tempered by arguments about the longevity of the phone, i.e. in two years there will be no Droids sold as everyone will have the latest whatever in that time frame, the bigger picture of Open Source is at play here, and could be down the road with new devices. I am a big proponent of companies doing whatever they want without fear of lawsuit or government intervention, but to sell a phone and advertise Android, aka open source, then block the very foundation is a bit wrong. About like marketing a car capable of 200 mph, then installing a governor that cannot be replaced that limits speeds to 55mph.

    Ya I agree with you Craig, while it won't effect my phone, it could drastically alter the incentive for the rooted droid devs to continue if this happened.
    Sad day to see an open-source phone treated this way, guess this will be my first and last motorola phone if they continue down this path.

    Just means I'll move to the Nexus One if they do this

    I love that Google gave you the option to unlock the bootloader out of box (albeit with standard warranty implications, etc)
