I really could care less about rooting so this doesn't sway me at all. I'm tired of all the debate about Moto's locked down bootloader.

All manufacturers, including Motorola release their kernel source code. They have to, per the android license. So saying "Screw Moto" doesn't make sense in this case as they release their source code too:

opensource.motorola.com

HTC is not doing anything special or anything every other OEM doesn't do...

That is right all oems release that info because no where does it say they have to have an unlockable bootloader so you can touch it. Oh and as far as the MOTO v HTC thing ask Droid inc 2 owners if they have s-off yet. Cause last I checked, yesterday, they was still trying to figure that out so basically the inc2 with safety on is like a d2/x cause you can root but not touch the kernel
