Please read the stickies before posting.

Boot loader unlock no= no fast boot so you cannot flash custom kernels, but you can flash all stock ones including ics.

You can still root and install cwm, this will allow you to flash any rom for locked boot loader.

You can unlock your booloader but you will have to pay for the service, pm Jinx13 about it

Actually no you can just read the stickies, you are going to murder your phone, you cannot downgrade to 2.3.3 you'll get the 0% battery issue.

Why people start messing with things without research I don't know.

Do your self a favor and read the stickies before you try anything else you will find the right way to root

I think that's only when going down to 2.3.2. Not sure, but I think.
