    Unlocked bootloader?

    So I hear a lot about locked bootloaders and not being able to use custom kernels, which I still don't quite understand the function of. But I read on androidcentral that the encryption was hacked? I'm not quite sure if it was for all phones, but sure anyone know what this might mean? Here's the link.

    Whoa... that's crazy. I hope they don't decide to change it for new phones, but ofc they will

    Alos, rhat means that on phones where custom roms couldn't really be flashed, now they can.

    I saw some tweets about this earlier. I bet we'll finally get ud and MIUI and all kinds of other great stuff on the d2 now. This is a great day!

    Yeah I have a D2G. I know I can still get custom ROMs cuz I'm using one but I also know my bootloader is locked so I can't get custom kernels. If I were to get a custom kernel, could I use cyanogenmod?

    Ud and MIUI are a couple sweet roms that have been mostly unavailable to d2 and dx because of the locked bootloader. Cyanogen is the same way. Custom kernels mean truly custom roms

    Great day in the Moto phone community. I own the D2G, right now Fission is the best thing going for these phones. Now though I might get a working Liberty, or other rom.

    Read it is the sholes key. Sholes is the Motorola Milestone, I wonder if Motorola used same key to sign other devices like our D2G (which is close descendant of the Milestone). Really exciting news! Hopefully development will pick up now if the bootloader is really defeated!

    Correct me if i'm wrong.
    With the bootloader unlocked devs can create custom kernals which will aid with custom roms?

    Yep! Thats about it! With a custom Kernel things like running CyanogenMod will be possible. Provided someone makes a custom Kernel for your unit which was not possible without the ability to sign an SBF and flash it.
