I don't know but if you do an OTA update with an unlocked bootloader ... Brick !
And if you flash the 2.3.4 firmware i suppose you will loose the overclock kernel.

But i'm sure Doomlord will make a new kernel for the next firmwares

I'm not a pro also but the bootloader is the program that allows your system to boot. If it's unlocked, you can flash custom roms (CyanogenMod, MIUI ...), custom kernels, and use a recovery mode.

I hope i helped you

Oooh, makes sense I've noticed the bootloader on the X8 has just been unlocked but custom roms have been around for a while. ( I'd thank you if the app allowed me to)

Effectively i did a mistake ! For installing custom rom, a recovery is most of the time needed (and for the neo the bootloader has to be unlocked to have a recovery )

You can have more infos there about the bootloader

Yes; sure, but you should not always keep it at 1.9Ghz
