Lag, bloatware, ads and boredom.

Is there any ETA for exploit allowing backup of DRM keys before unlocking bootloader? Is anyone working on this?

Yes that is something because big things like this are dependant on results

At this point (July 22, 2014), there is a root exploit available for locked bootloaders, so you can safely:
  1. root your phone,
  2. use DevShaft's Backup TA tool to back up your DRM keys/TA partition,
  3. then unlock the bootloader.
Which means that you can restore the TA partition at any point in the future, and restore the DRM keys/etc. (Please correct me if I'm mistaken.)
