    Hope so, I don't want to get my hopes up so I'm not going to get crazy but I've been contemplating returning the phone cause of the locked bootloader, so if this is true I will be extremely happy.

    So this isn't even the developer phone he did this on?

    Pardon my noobness, but would someone give me some details on what this means? How exactly would this exploit allow a custom kernal or ROM to be installed?

    Thanks :)

    If we can install a custom recovery, we will be able to flash custom ROMs, even though they wouldn't be signed by Motorola

    Yes, I gathered that. To be more specific, how is that different from the normal process for say, the droid? Are there still limitations to what can be done with the X due to the locked bootloader?

    Just trying to learn something.
