I've heard the G2 is one of the few phones currently on Verizon capable of AOSP ROMs. Has that been corrected, as in are there any recent software updates that lock the bootloader or whatever? I just don't want to get it and find it locked down.

my d2vzw just died on me, so I'm gonna need to update fast. Thanks so much.

The newest update technically closed the loki bootloader hole. But the awesome devs here have figured out how to flash an older booloader to the new update. Giving you an open bootloader with KK. They also made a tool to do it to make it idiot proof. Even if your new G2 comes with KK loaded all you do is use iroot25 (to root) and then autorec (to flash the right bootloader / bootstack) and you are in business.
