    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.

    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.
