    Yep, the TBs bootloder was unlocked weeks ago. The DX ... not at all, and many great devs have tried and quit.

    I got the first GB that got leaked out (rooted at that too) not this 'newer' GB...what are the differences worth noting?

    Well, according to this thread it seems the new version is some Draconion, Orwellian or Communist plot to take away our freedom!! ;-)

    Personal freedom infringed? Ring Slater Nazis, or, if closed, the Department of Foreign Affairs.

    I think he added an extra letter. I don't believe that "f" should be there. ;)

    Hate to tell you but it wasn't really unlocked they just beat it by a leaked build that was not locked. Secondly it is not encypted like the Moto devices are. To further add if you think the next batch of devices won't have new updated locks on them you are sadly mistaken. There are new policies going into affect that will require the devices to be locked or the carrier will not sell them. So folks can believe all they want things will continue to move forward like we've seen in the past but that reality will smack them in the face in the not to distant future.

    Case and point why do you think the Merge was never released on VZW. And on that note VZW was not happy on how fast the tBolt was hacked.

    I'm right there with ya as I've been buying off contract for the past 5 plus yrs anyways. And currently its no concern atm to me really. I'll stick with my dev unit I was lucky enough to get my hands on so I can do what I want with it. So Moto and VZW can stick it for the time being in my book seeing as I have my unlocked X

    My rooted DROIDX locked up in me ( I forgot to reboot between installing apps. Two apps at once froze it. The replacement phone had the bread. I tried the factory reset but the bread remained. OOPS!!!!
