What's changed recently that led to the release of the beta for CM? Or has it taken this long to basically build the OS from the ground up to work around the locked bootloader?
    Basically, from what I understand, he messed with the init files, that tell the device and OS what to do on boot. I'm guessing that by doing this he was able to bypass the eFuse, which is what allowed him to put CM on the phone.

    To add to that, what he unlocked is the userspace, where the OS, UI, and everything else you see runs. However, the bootloader and kernel load before init runs, so those cannot be messed with, but anything after them (the userspace) can be modded I believe.
