P3Droid says that when you boot into bootloader/fastboot mode there is a counter visible on the screen showing how many times the bootloader has been unlocked/locked. Has anyone seen this? And if so, when you go through this method, does the counter in fact reset?

I hope someone takes a look at this as I feel it's an important thing to take note of in this endeavor.

I just rebooted back in to bootloader (fastboot) mode and do not see any such counter...

Perhaps that was only on P3droid's development device (presuming that's what he has)?

My fastboot screen looks nearly identical to this (this is not my screenshot, by the way):

except that mine says "VARIANT - toro" and different serial numbers, etc. -- but no unlock counter (I actually think I remember reading / hearing about this a long while back, too).
