This thread was a handful, to say the least, so I will pass on the opportunity. But I do believe the exposure certainly helped in getting us root. It would be great if someone started a bootloader bounty to the same effect.

Its hard not to dream over what this phone would be like unlocked...

I agree with the positivity, but have to clarify one thing. it wasn't the exposure that gained root; one user emailed Geohot out of the blue and asked him to do it. Half the thanks should go to him!

Lots of people who pledged and that were active (including myself) were touching base with many developers. Certainly due credit and much thanks to greatnesstx for getting a hold of him, but nobody would be looking like we were without the exposure of the bounty. I am not saying the exposure was solely responsible, but as I put it, "it certainly helped".
