    Hopefully it will come with an unencrypted bootloader, if moto holds true to what they said about removing encryption around end of 2011

    Good luck with that. Highly doubtful, but it would be nice

    We'll be lucky if they even release GB officially. Even if they do, is there a good reason for leak users to change over?

    Tappin' and talkin' with Tappatalk

    THAT is the question for me. I have been running the rooted leaked GB on my D2 since the day it launched and have been pretty happy. No major issues.

    Same here. Really not looking forward to OTA update unless it can top the leaked/rooted version.

    Motorola has confirmed that the droid 2, droid 2 global, and droid pro will be getting Gingerbread sometime this summer. The droid x will get it a few weeks sooner.

    Actually moto said they would be unlocking bootloaders on their devices....they never said only new devices. It doesn't matter to me either way, better devices are/will be out and most people have already moved on.
