    Has anyone heard anything on the progress of an unlocked bootloader for the Bionic?

    I know there was a reward for the first people to crack it...

    The chances of someone cracking the bootloader are slim to none, only real chance of it occurring is if a leak comes from Moto, or if Moto purposely unlocks it. Kind of a bummer. :/

    Well seeing as they used the same atrix unlock method on the Photon, in theory it might work for the Bionic.

    The atrix was unlocked via a leak, also im pretty sure the atrix is using a different chipset then the bionic. So the bootloader will be different.

    I could be wrong though.

    Considering that one could double the clock speed on the OG, could you imagine the Bionic @ 2 ghz?

    The ATRIX and Photon are very similar. With Tegra 2 and what not.

    Now, if the ATRIX 2 got it then maybe.

    You only need hope!

    Or just leave it at stock 1GHz. This phone is fast enough as it already is.

    Yup. Even 1ghz single core phones aren't bad.
