    Definitely moto on this one. Nexus's drawer just looks like a cheesy 90's attempt at 3D. Never did like it lol. Not to mention the functionality of the moto drawer, ie groups and deleting apps directly from drawer w/o having to go through settings.

    ^-- yes, I was using launcher pro before the leak but found "gingerblur" is much more user friendly and stable.

    Took them long enough. I have always been pleased with moto, I have been one of the fortunate ones that has not had problems with my phone (knock on wood). And I plan on staying with moto.

    Started with the D1 and was fully pleased. Now having the X for almost 6 months..I'm satisfied with Moto. The whole locked bootloader is a moot point for me anymore.
    Hardware has been 100% reliable for me.
    I won't be jumping ship anytime soon!

    I understand why they lock it down they have to protect their product. I say make the hackers pay to hack. You want to hack then you should buy the key, and purchase an official rsdlite program from them. And I would sell the sbf files, but that is just me if I was in charge at moto.

    Seems very ridiculous for them to do something like that while running an Open Source OS.. I don't really understand why they don't allow you to claim rooted/bricked phones under the insurance though.. Make it $150 for root related problems as opposed to whatever the cost is now

    Their software is not open source, android is. If you want moto to give you an unlocked device then you will get what you saw with the d1 where you have to buy your own software like swype, skype, etc. Moto paid a premium to include swype in their software and they have all rights to protect people from putting it on an AOSP Rom. Just like you cant take angry birds and modify it and call it any ducks and try and make money off it. If you damage your phone by modifying the software you should pay this will keep people from wasting moto's time and money by rushing into things. Open is a double edged sword and people do not understand with openness comes responsibility. I see too many people jumping on a one click root and not understanding the process. Moto should lock it down because they have to protect against malicious apps and people not paying attention. If moto charges $35 for the key, $25 for the rsdlite program, and $15 for each rsdlite file they would either have people reconsider rushing into modding or make some money back off of people bricking their phones. We all mess up and it can happen to me, and when it does I just have to own it and pay for it.

    Apparently Sony Ericson figured out a way to unlock the bootloader while protecting the interest of them and their affiliates.
