    So much for those super locked down Motorola's. Can't wait for the Bionic now.

    Locked down is not keeping it from being rooted. Its more a matter of custom roms and a custom recovery that is effected by locked bootloaders. The droid x and droid 2 is rooted and have roms.

    Rooting is not difficult. Getting passed locked bootloaders is very difficult. If all you want is root then the Bionic should be fine but for those of us who like more customization... we'll have to wait and see.

    Huh, so the new superuser app icon is a pirate.

    The main guy is a robot.
    The last SU icon was a ninja.
    Now the SU icon is a pirate.

    We just need a Velociandroid and the terror is complete!
