    That is generally not a good way to look at it - since technically that's not 100% true.

    Having access to CWR is the first step to getting some ROM's rolling.
    So it's good news all the way around.

    Just a reminder for those of you coming from the OG Droid..
    Bionic still has a locked bootloader. While many of the ROM's we're likely to see are going to be AWESOME we still will not be able to tweak on the kernels.. thus overclocking will be limited at best (most likely not possible).

    The X was able to be overclocked....limited yes, but it was done...I almost don't see much of a point in overclocking the Bionic (yet anyway) I have around 150 apps installed on it and have had limited to no redraw and no lag on opening any app or scrolling....maybe things will change but im not going to overclock unless I have to honestly

    My point was more of.. once the ROM's start showing up we're going to see dozens of threads of "Which kernel should I flash". Well, none.

    True....none of that is going to be going down! I did like liberty on the DX...and I have no experience in using different kernels so im clueless there....I just used the android overclock app for the X, seemed to do the trick...im sure it would be nice having a kernel that has more layers in it than the X had...I think only 4? Where the stock OG had 7? I could be wrong

    I'm excited for the simple fact i can go back to making backups. I honestly believe the software as it stands on the bionic is top notch. Zero problems since 9am last thursday.
