    Does this phone have a locked Bootloader?

    Also is this a hack friendly phone with powerful Kernals and Roms and Recovery systems.

    How hard is it to root this phone? scale 1 to 10

    I have the Lg Ally but is time to upgrade. Just trying to decide which phone to go to. Thanks for all of your help guys :D

    Yes

    Yes, lots of very good ROMs can be found here or in XDA forums.

    1 being easy and 10 being hard I give it a 5. I give it a 5 because if you are 2.3.4 you need to downgrade to 2.3.3 before rooting. Both the downgrade and root methods are in the stickies in this thread.

    I moved from an ally to a Dinc2. Couldn't be happier.

    Getitnowmarketing aka drellisdee has a kernel floating around too.

    It's also available for downloading on its own at XDA.
