I've gone through several threads but couldn't find answers to a few questions here:
1) Heard of the locked bootlocker; Does that stop you from rooting and removing the bloat that is on the phone?
2) Are there any ROMs available that makes the UI faster and close to gingerbread in performance?
3) Does anyone have experience with 1) and 2) and has that made their phone faster to use?
1) The bootloader has been confirmed to be signed and not locked. So until a dev at XDA can hack the bootloader, what this means is that you cannot load any custom ROMs with a custom Kernel. You can still Root your phone and have Roms, but it would have to have the stock Kernel for it to work. So yes, you can remove bloatwares on the Atrix
