    got the d3

    on the way in the mail but after reading about the locked bootloader im kinda considering returning it already...i had the charge for a few days rooted it didnt care for any of the roms, lack of netflix and the cm rom...to help me decide if im keeping the d3 or not...with a locked bootloader its impossible to ever get cm on there ? im not fully sure what the the lockdown is...i know you cant change the kernal from rooting a dx...but what about overclocking then? I guess i might just be sitting on the droid 1 for another year if the d3 phone cant be cracked...maybe time to jump ship and wait for the evo shift 2 or something...http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1147243

    This is kinda scaring me about new phones. I am completely in LOVE with CM7 on my Droid 1...but I want the high-speed of both network/processor that the Bionic offers. However, I won't have my DSP Manager (equalizer), Wired/Wireless tethering, or any of the COOL features and customizations that I have on my Droid 1. I hope that people shift to ROMing up the Bionic...but I doubt it.

    I just think it is a matter of when....not if.

    The DX and D2 both have locked and encrypted bootloaders but CM7 is finally trickling out to those devices. The DX2 already has CWM so it is just a matter of time before we start seeing CM7 for that too.

    The D3 bootloader was confirmed to be locked but there has not yet been any confirmation of it being encrypted.

    In any case, it will just be a matter of time before:
    1) Workarounds are found to get past this so custom ROMs can be loaded
    2) Something leaks like it did with the Atrix allowing for a full unlock
    3) Moto actually releases an unlock later on in 2011 like they claim they might.

    I don't know how people are getting such "great" results from the Droid 1. I've tried CM and a variety of other ROM's and UNLESS the Droid 1 is severely overclocked, it doesn't run as well as the Droid X or any of the new Motorola's. Immediately after a fresh ROM flash, the phone runs great, then after a few app downloads and daily usage, the phone begins lagging and hiccuping like crazy.

    Yeah, you can overclock the Droid and run AOSP Rom's but the lack of RAM, and overall hardware limitations will cause your phone to choke when you load too many apps. I've had 3 friends burn out their Droids by overclocking and they were forced to get insurance replacements.

    For those who don't want to wipe the cache everyday, or be limited to 15 add on apps, the Droid 3 offers a much better experience.

    Running Froyo at 800Mhz here... My phone does what I need it to, that's all that matters to me. Personally I don't want another physical keyboard phone so I'm waiting on the Bionic.

    I guess I'm lucky, I've had my phone rooted since the original update.zip exploit came out and I've had it overclocked to various speeds over the past year and a half and it's chugging along fine for what it is.

    800Mhz and zeppelinrox's SuperCharger script has the phone snappier now than many of my friends' newer phones with more powerful CPUs. Avoiding GB ROMs helps a lot too. FroYo doesn't seem to have the overhead of GB. Why is it that all OS upgrades always add more bloatware and overhead?? What happened to keeping it small, fast, and efficient??

    I'd say wait till you get the phone to deside if you're going to return it.

    There are phones with locked bootloaders that are getting the roms.

    It just takes some time. The D3 looks like a great device. You should be just fine with it till roms start roms coming out.
