    I wonder why the thread over on XDA was locked.

    I know I was trying to figure that out too. I got rid of my OG 16 days ago for an S3 and still haven't rooted, didn't check xda for a few days, then BAM, just like that. Tell u what tho, following that R&D locked bootloader thread that they started exclusively to unlock the bootloader, reading through that was starting to make my head turn into scrambled eggs. It was simply unbelievable. I had extreme disappointment when I first upgraded, goin to TouchWiz and all that, and I know about that kexec method to flash ROMs and what not, but I figured I'd just hold, knowing the kind of minds that we all had working towards unlocking the bootloader, it was only a matter of time before it got cracked. Man, what a slap in the face to Verizon, it's friggin awesome. What a glorious day in android history!!!:hail::biggrin::icon_ banana:

    Think Adam said he wanted to keep it preserved, so only important info would be in it. There was a new thread started related to it where all the discussion is goin down. Can't really blame him, there's some crazy info that's in there that doesn't need to get cluttered up on. I'm goin to bookmark that ish right now!!

    I wish this would happen to the Droid 3... and the rest of Moto's lineup.

    Except the RAZR has the kexec method to bypass the lock... It'll happen eventually.

    Soooo happy I upgraded both the wife and I to these phones now (right before unlimited ran out).

    I already unlocked my bootloader with a windows method that is listed here .

    I have an ubuntu computer at home, but couldn't wait to leave work to do this.
