Here's some good news for you guys...
has bypassed the the bootloader with loki. Essentially this works the same as having the bootloader unlocked.
You would now be able to flash custom recoveries and kernels amongst other things. You would also be able to remove any app without bootlooping.
I suggest one of you guys nicely ask Shabby
if he can make you a loki'd cwm.
