Default Verizon G2 and modding

Hi! Thinking of getting the G2 on Verizon. However, I want to make sure that it's not so locked down that I can't flash CM on it. Can anyone give a geeral state of affairs on the development scene on this phone?

You can flash custom ROMs on it. The bootloader is still locked, but there's a workaround (loki).

Pretty easy if you do some research, I had some issues after taking the 12B OTA before rooting and trying any custom ROMs and ran into some snags.. I rolled back to a previous version and it's been very hassle free using TWRP 2.6.3.3. Gr33nd3vil's unofficial CM has been running very nicely
