    Someone needs to change the title of this thread too. The Droid X has not been rooted, yet the title seems to indicate that it may have already been rooted.

    If the intent is to say the Droid X may eventually be rooted, then it needs to be edited to reflect this.

    I like HTC, I'd have an Incredible if it had a better GPU. Not trying to crap on Motorola, but I definitely don't see a long list of reasons to be loyal to them :)

    Exactly what I was thinking. Every Moto phone that is released from now on may have an encrypted bootloader.

    I totally agree, I hope the 2Ghz vaporware isn't locked either.

    That said though, while everyone compares it to the milestone, I'll go out on a limb and say that the US hacker community hasn't yet had to deal with this right? So let's see how long it might take to root, and unlock it if need be.

    Since I'm not up for an upgrade, it's moot to me anyways, but I'd like to see what happens.

    I bet every Android phone that Moto makes from now on will be locked down. The Droid was the exception to the rule apparently.

    I'll be surprised if every new Android phone from every major manufacturer doesn't have a locked bootloader by the end of this year.

    Edit: N.B. I'm talking every post-Galaxy S variant, since they're already in production and limited circulation.

    Question. I understand the reasons for rooting, I can't wait for it to happen. I currently have an iPhone and have always jailbroken them. One question, the custom ROMs that are created by the community, are you able to add the stuff they put in the custom ROMs manually via custom apps?

    This may be something we all may have to accept, for a while or even longer.
