    Even though Motorola has a locked bootloader on the newer phones, they're still rooted. So what exactly does the locked bootloader prevent people from doing?

    Changing the OS kernel. So you can't run Gingerbread until Motorola comes out with the upgrade and the service provider pushes it out to us.

    So for example, Gingerbread can't be made into a ROM for the Droid X/Droid 2 until Motorola releases their official Gingerbread version?

    That's correct, unless someone figures out a way to get around the lock.
