    It seems like never. Hopefully Google will have enough will to change that fact.

    what is un encrypt bootloader? I know what bootloader is. And what's a lapdock?
    I thought moto was a good company until my 8mp camera d3 is worse then a 5mp samsung. And my dual core processor is slower then a samsung Fascinate or galaxy

    Moto makes bad cameras, but the bionics isn't horrible.

    The ram is low on the d3 which may be adding some lag but I doubt it is slower than fascinate. I owned a fascinate and that phone was garbage.

    The bootloader is encrypted, not just locked. You need a private key to decrypt the data. It is close to impossible to decrypt the data without the key. So the device will never truly be ours to access even though we payed for it...seems illegal to me.

    Moto and Samsung can both eat it imo...I am going back to htc or another os after this device.

    Htc IMO has always been in the ttop2 ..but what exactly does encrypted mean? We can still modify it because thats how we manage roms.

    Encrypted means you cannot hack the bootloader or unlock it without the key. Bootstrap is a workaround, but you will never be able to change kernels and ROMs will always have workaround hacks to make them work unless it is based off the stock ROM. Like 2nd init for example is a workaround to get pure AOSP ROMs on Moto devices.

    And if the bootloader is locked, what purpose is that for since we can still go into bootloader and do a wipe of some sort?

    Only Motorola phone on Verizon you can change the kernel on is the Droid 1. Your D2G is locked and encrypted and you're stuck with stock kernels.

    I would make sure I had the GB OTA and then install the CM7 GB kernel ROM.
