Default Unlocked bootloader?

I would like to buy this device and be able to modify the software. Will it come with an unlocked bootloader and be rootable? It's not fun when developers aren't supported by the manufacturer as in the android world it will attract more attention to the product. I like to be able to customize what I own also could madcatz please release stock flashable firmware files for developers and development? Most of us on xda would appreciate it thanks for your time reading this and look forward to your product and hopefully all the above being true.

Hi,

Yes, the bootloader is unlocked so it is rootable. Regarding the rest of your questions, watch this space!

+1 for some more info, it would be great to at least get root, then we can hide the bar for XBMC until we get KitKat (and kernel sources would allow us to cause some ruckus on that side too )
