Sadly Moto may use that as a stick when it comes to warranty claims. Hopefully they will NOT and see the light that Samsung and HTC have already followed.

i just realized that I need my root before i start using my phone. I have too much data I need to restore to my apps. Mybackup & TiBu requires root to restore data.
When will Moto & Verizon and every other mftr & Carrier beginto realize that these are smartphones & start treating them like one. My Google acct doesnt save the data of my apps, nor does any Mftr/Carrier end provide this type of support.
excited to get my phone tuesday, yet disappointed I wont get to dive rite into it
Im going to show my NEWB status here. So what is the point of the unlocked bootloader in specific is that the file that has to be "rooted" and if it is unlocked what is the damage if it cannot be RElocked???Even if i go back to stock with the SBF(which i know is not out yet) why does it matter if the bootloader STAYS unlocked???
Right now it is locked and signed.
The unlocked bootloader allows NON stock (read AOSP) SBF's to be created and flashed to the phone. These SBF files can already have root and busybox, a la all that is necessary for us to make changes.
The Xoom has the unlock/relock bootloader. I'm not sure exactly how it works.
But if I get the gist of what you are asking, Verizon/Moto seems to have issue with unlocked bootloaders. It seems to be a combination of things, including, but not limited to you being able to root and change to a non stock AOSP ROM, removing bloatware, and the like. The issue with the D3 is that the OS has been patched well enough at this point that no exploits are able to crack root in there. If the bootloader was unlocked, all one would need to do it get a non stock recovery working, and then load an update.zip "root" or just create an SBF with root included.
Sorry, didnt see this thread in here. lol I have already begun working on Steel Droid III. Im currently removing bloatware, optimizing apps, and and adding in my extras from my other releases (at least what I can). This is an awesome phone, and I think it will be a big hit once Clockwork Recovery gets released (soon, too, I hear)
