Bootloader may be locked down, but does not mean folks can not at least root and rid of some bloat and use Titanium Back up
I hope. I probably won't buy this unless I see videos of the rooted phone first. Because right now, first impressions are just alright, from what people are saying anyway. Otherwise I'm still waiting on the S2 or Bionic.
Gingerbreak still works on the Gingerbread version shipped on the DX and the DX2, so its a huge possibility it will just work.
It is however, patched on the Xperia Play running 2.3.2. So who knows which direction they went with it.
DX2 doesn't have gingerbread yet. We are on Froyo but the Gingerroot app does let you have root access on it and most other Froyo based phones as well.
So you'd wager to say its a definite no on the exploit working on the D3?
If so, thats actually great because it will put a fire under the hackers to find a new exploit for all of the other phones that have been waiting indefinitely for it but dont have the community support of a large device like this (namely the Xperia Play.)
