1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    My first DROID of course was the OG, and now im onto the thunderbolt. Today I traded my hp netbook for 2 DROID X's and I have to say they are very appealing. I flashed 2.3.3 on one and gave the other to my girlfriend. I think im more drawn to the dx at this point. The bolt impressed me from day 1 buy the dx running 2.3.3 really has got me hooked. I really hate liking this device because of Motorola practices but all in all I gotta tip my hat to their hardware. Locked bootloaders are a kick in the face, the capabilities of Motorola's hardware and custom roms would just be a android playhouse just like the og. Motorola would have my full support of they would just change their ways.

    exactly. for me nothing beats the moto hardware, but i find it hard to imagine buying another one. too far down the rabbit hole to not be able to fully customize my device.

    I think most people share the same feelings and judging from the petition people want a unlocked Motorola badly.

    I personally LOVE Motorola's hardware. You can't go wrong buying one. Plus they are truly the one and only true Droid manufacturer : )

    Something seems amiss with Samsung or HTC in the Droid title. The real Droids are Motos plain and simple : )

    I swore off moto after blur and locking down. Then I tried gingerblur and its been enough to at least give them a look, but I am probably not gonna buy moto unless they change their lock down procedures. With that said I do understand where moto is coming from you have to do something about people bricking phones and showing up on their facebook, twitter, and forums discussing leaks that they should not have. I want moto to atleast do something that is fair for all parties. I am even for having to pay for rsdlite programs to fix my device. Now its to expensive to make individual keys so maybe charging 20 bucks for rsdlite program and $5 bucks for the sbf so you can fix it yourself.

    Htc will most likely lock down there phones at some point and it will be a moot point. Sure miui and cyanogen would be nice but I'm good with ocing and theming that is the most important imo.
