    Yeah, read the same thing. I'm not happy with HTC about this since they have helped XDA developers with it's easy access to their phones in the past. I bet Verizon is making them do it...

    Not a good thing. The openness of HTC phones was a major differentiation between them and MOT (for example).

    I'm devastated! I was really considering this phone but not so sure now.

    First Motorola, now HTC. Not a good sign for the future.

    It's already been rooted on the INCS' released in asia that were shipped with s-off, it's predicted root will be achieved on all others with s-on within the next two weeks, and yes, its a signed bootloader.
