How much does locked BL hinder this phone?
Just how big a deal is the locked bootloader? I understand that the DX's never got unencrypted, but they found a workaround (2nd init) that has allowed them to port MIUI and CM7 over. With the international version being unlockable, does that make it any more likely that Verizon's version will ever be unlocked, allowing custom kernels? I really like this phone, but if development is going to die on the vine due to bootloader issues, I'm probably going to return it for a nexus. I'd rather rely on a robust dev community than the OEM any day of the week for updates and fixes. If that's attainable with the RAZR, then this is the phone I want to keep.
