    You ought to direct that anger on motorola's facebook, twitter, forum, or call them and telling them. Expressing it here is good but you will feel much better if you expressed it to them :D ......trust me.

    it won't be done. not by an android dev, not by some 17 year old who claims he's close and not by the greatest hacker in the world. no one is cracking that bootloader. That kind of encryption has never been hacked ever and its not going to be an android dev who does it...Their best bet is finding some workaround to loading a custom kernel and that's almost as unlikely as the bootloader being unlocked...

    Don't doubt him! Remember... Jeff Goldblum wrote a computer virus for an alien computer system on a MacBook in 2 days in the Independence Day. THIS IS OUR INDEPENDENCE!!

    Honestly, I'm not worried about it. It was an employee having a bad day, IMO. No, it's not professional, but no one can be professional all day, every day.

    I have a D2, and I've been able to hack it all that I care to.

    Can someone explain exactly what can be done with a custom kernel?

    Do you guys remember the guy with the Lifelock commercial saying that he was so confident in his companies ability to protect your information, that he had the truck drive around with a billboard on it and his SSN. Guess, what?! he played with fire and tempted too many people and they sure did hack his crap so badly that they changed their policy and lowered their coverage limit.

    The point is, I am a firm believer in where there is a will, there is a way. And I truly believe someone will unlock the bootloader. Granted, I don't have a whole lot of knowledge at all with this type of thing, but there are too many smart people in the world. As a matter of a fact, it makes me want to spend all of my free time learning this stuff just so I could contribute to knocking their arrogance down a few notches.

    I'm just saying, some smart genius somewhere is going to do this.

    That was supposed to say "some super smart 17 year old genius from MIT or something is going to do this.
