From what i understand, the g3's bootloader is locked. what does locked bootloader mean for custom roms? does that mean it won't get original roms like paranoid, cyanogenmod, etc..?

Basically, yes. But LG has promised to unlock our bootloader somewhere in the future so we will eventually get some custom ROMs

LG in reality has no intention of doing that. It's not worth the hassle especially when carriers would largely not allow it anyway.

But the bootloader will likely be unlocked in the next couple of weeks or so, by private devs.
