I turn on my phone.
I press volume keys.
I am presented with a menu which allows me to wipe everything, or backup/restore to SD.
That menu allows me to wipe or steal all data on the phone without a passcode or anything.
I only have access to that menu after putting the CM boot.img image onto the phone.
Whether this is the bootloader or not, or a menu or not - I would argue that it is since it comes from boot.img and is a list of selectable functions - seems menu-like to me doesn't matter. There's no point getting embroiled in semantics.
Is there an alternative boot.img that doesn't respond to the volume keys and just loads cyanogenmod after it's been installed?
