    Just wondering I mean I have my droid 1 rooted I flash new roms all the time .....
    Just wondering if the droid 2's bootloader will be locked or if anyone has heard from a source about this as I know droid x's bootloader is locked.

    I mean I spend to much time flashing & customizing my droid but I am starting to cut back now so it does not bother me but it would be nice to be able to have the option if I had some extra time

    So does this mean no themes, overclocking, or wireless tethering either?

    I was talking to Miami about this last night and yes, the Droid 2 Bootloader will be locked. That's per his source.

    Motorola has come out and said all future device will be locked. With it though you can still WiFi tether, but no rom or over clocking that I know of. Without recovery I see no way to flash a kernel.

    Yes, the bootloader will be secured. Motorola said it on their Twitter feed (@MotoMobile) yesterday in response to someone asking if it was unlocked.
